CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Tuesday he owns ether, the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency by market value.
“I’ve got a lot of ether,” Cramer said on “Squawk Box,” explaining he initially acquired it in order to bid on nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, being auctioned in March by Time magazine. “I didn’t get it, so I just kept the ether.”
While Cramer did not specify exactly when he bought ether, the digital currency entered March at about $1,400 and rose to around $1,900 by the end of the month. The Time NFT auction closed March 24.
