Belfort doesn't see Bitcoin itself as a total scam, but he believes that it will never go mainstream either. "If you're trying to figure out where to store your life savings, traditional assets are still your safest bet". It is actively working with the central banks of various countries, so there is an element of trust and transparency in the transactions.

The recovery of Bitcoin is following the "V-shaped" pattern of ups and down, he said. Bitcoin rose 3.8 per cent to US$11,502 (RM44,823) at 7:15am in NY, heading for a one-month high, according to prices compiled by Bloomberg.
