A specialist in Bitcoin and a member of the exclusive Bored Ape Yacht Club, McCamley told the paper that despite Bitcoin dropping from a high of $69,000 down to just over $13,500 this is an “exciting time”.

“It’s very sad to read about all the people that have lost their money, though. People get into crypto because it can help them out,” he told the Belfast Telegraph. “The money is made when the markets are made — when things are down in the dumps. It’s an exciting time.”

He concluded: “No one can imagine their life without the internet now. But it’s the exact same with crypto. We’ll be sending money in the future this way.”
