Calvin Ayre, the founder of the Ayre Group and massive proponent of the Bitcoin SV [BSV], enraged not just the cryptocurrency community, but also the social media community by uploading allegedly illicit pictures on Twitter.

On March 12, the BSV spearhead put up pictures with a “Cuban dance team” on his recent trip to Havana, with the caption:

“Drinking Rum with Cuban dance team in Havana”

The pictures depicted women of questionable age standing behind a shirtless Ayre, with a glass of what is presumably rum, as indicated by his tweet. The outrage Ayre faced was due to the indication that the “women” seem to be under-age, however, there is no confirmation of the same.

A video posted in the thread showed the same group of women, at the gambling mogul’s “pool party,” on March 13. Ayre stated in the following tweet:

“Cuban national twerking team practising at my pool party yesterday”

Ayre faced severe backlash on Twitter following the aforementioned pictures and video with the “young women,” with many voicing their anger and outrage of Bitcoin SV over Calvin Ayre’s antics.

This isn’t the first time Calvin Ayre has been in the limelight with regard to his behavior. His gambling business has had run-ins with the law in the past. In 2017, Ayre pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge, in which he admitted to being an accessory to the transmission of gambling information that was in violation of the federal Wire Act.

CNBC’s Crypto Trader Ran NeuNer, spoke to Max Keiser, Co-founder of Heisenberg Capital on the sidelines of the Magical Crypto Conference and discussed Bitcoin’s current trends.

Keiser said that he was bullish on Bitcoin in the long term, adding that he would be sticking by his “$100,000” prediction for Bitcoin. He stated,

“I never stopped make price prediction… I said it [Bitcoin] was going to a hundred thousand dollars and it was only a dollar and I said that all publicly… it is still going to a hundred thousand dollars”

He added that the timing of when Bitcoin would reach the mark was not important, but that it would outperform every other asset over the next 15 years. Additionally, he said that timing was only for people who were waiting to buy crypto at a better price and “that is a bad way to approach crypto.”

Keiser displayed his enthusiasm for crypto, commenting that, “Stack Satoshis… Stack SATs… you should be stacking SATs.” Giving his opinion on Bitcoin’s recent rally, Keiser said,



“I think that it goes back to when Federal Reserve issued a statement saying that they’re moving the policy to permanent quantitative easing… which means money printing without end. As you know Bitcoin is hard money, like gold, and it is going to respond well to hyperinflation and hyper-money printing.”

Further, Keiser claimed that Bitcoin bottomed when the Federal Reserve announced this a few weeks ago and that this was due to a couple of reasons. The first being Bitcoin’s upcoming halving which highlights the scarcity of Bitcoin. According to Keiser, the second reason was that the sellers were exhausted. All the above reasons, in totality, contributed to Bitcoin’s price rise, claimed Keiser.

Since Bitcoin has already proven itself as a store of value, Keiser remarked that it would be best to concentrate on Lightning Network, a layer-two scalability solution for Bitcoin and improve it as a medium of exchange.
