Barry Silbert deletes old tweets amid GBTC selloff

Under-fire Digital Currency Group founder Barry Silbert has apparently deleted a raft of his old tweets.

According to his X (formerly Twitter) account, Silbert signed up in October 2011, however, at the time of writing, his timeline shows no tweets or replies older than January 5 this year.

Luckily for die-hard Silbert fans, X user Pledditor has screenshotted some of his “greatest hits.”

Among the messages saved by Pledditor is a classic in which Silbert brands himself a “complete and total professional failure,” and one in which he advises Dogecoin holders to convert it to bitcoin.

It’s not clear what prompted Silbert’s social media cull but he’s currently taking social media flak after nearly $580 million in outflows from Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) late last week was blamed for a dip in bitcoin’s price. GBTC converted into an ETF late last week.

Bitcoin hit a two-year high of more than $49,000 on Thursday, however by Friday it had once again dipped below $43,000.
