Mr. Cramer was pointed towards the Bitcoin article by the host of the ‘it’s your Bitcoin’ podcast, KRB, via a tweet that stated the following.

Jim Cramer now joins the list of notable Wall Street personalities such as Paul Tudor Jones, who believe in Bitcoin as a store of value and a hedge against inflation.
Time for Bitcoin to Go Up
As Jim Cramer was revealing his ownership of Bitcoin, the author of the stock-to-flow model, PlanB (@100trillionUSD) also took to Twitter to explain that it was time for Bitcoin to go up.
In this instance, PlanB used a 2019 time series model of Bitcoin to point out a clear jump in BTC value after the previous halving in 2016 that could be replicated soon.
Below is his tweet further elaborating on the idea.
S2F version 1 update. This is the 2019 time series model on historical BTC data only (no gold, silver, diamonds, real estate data used). You see the jump in model value at the halving (white line) and corresponding drop in S2F multiple / model error (white dots). Time to go up. pic.twitter.com/qIjiXfbmCx

Bitcoin’s Current Price Action
A brief glance at the Daily Bitcoin chart reveals that BTC has shrugged off the late Sunday sell-off that saw its value fall to as low as $10,190 – Binance rate. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading slightly above $10,800 after printing a local peak of $10,933.
Also from the daily BTC/USDT, the following can be observed.
- Trade volume is clearly in the green with the daily MACD about to cross in a bullish manner
- MFI is low at 36, hinting of a push up by Bitcoin in the days to follow
- The 50-day moving average (white) provides short term resistance for Bitcoin around $11,200
- Other resistances lie at the $10,900 and $11k area
Summing it up, Jim Cramer has become the latest Wall Street legend to buy Bitcoin. Additionally, and using PlanB’s stock-to-flow model, Bitcoin is primed for a major move up.
However, the daily BTC/USDT chart only hints of a possible brief rally above $11k in the short-term.
As with all analyses of Bitcoin, traders and investors are advised to use stop losses and low leverage when trading BTC on the various derivatives platforms.
