In a previous statement, he said that 65% of his portfolio was covered by gold, 8% by silver and the rest by real estate.
Godfey Bloom stated that he is open to learning more about cryptocurrencies and even invited cryptocurrency commentators and pioneers for an interview on his Youtube channel, which has 13,000 subscribers.

Central Banks Are Incompetent, Commercial Banks Are Thief
The former member of the European Parliament said at a meeting in 2013 that the banking sector is a scam. Bloom said at the meeting of the parliament that “you do not understand the banks, all the banks went bankrupt”, and now he has somewhat proved that he continues his attitude of that time by choosing Bitcoin investment.
Bloom also targeted central banks in his speech during the same meeting. The politician, who expressed concern about the policy of minting money by the central banks, accused the central banks of manipulating the central banks to stimulate the economy. Bloom also made accusations such as “incompetent” and “thief” for banks.
