Daniel S. Loeb, CEO and founder of hedge fund Third Point, says he's taking "a deep dive into crypto."
- The New York-based CEO described cryptocurrency as a "real test of being open to new and controversial ideas" in a series of tweets on Monday.
- Loeb likened bridging crypto and mainstream finance to "finding a portal" between two different worlds.
- He also stressed the importance of "maintaining healthy skepticism while deepening one's understanding" and pondered whether it is now too late to join "the crypto party," even if it's still "early days in what is just now being adopted in the mainstream."
