According to CCN, as bitcoin prices soared on October 9, well-known bitcoin bulls and Morgan Creek Digital co-founder Anthony Pompliano once again praised Bitcoin. He tweeted, "Bitcoin continues to move forward. One block after another. It is completely immune to economic manipulation or political instability in the country. Bitcoin is doing what it was originally designed to do. See what a wonderful thing." However, his comments were criticized by Twitter users. A user sneered at him, saying that he continued to tout bitcoin just because he invested in bitcoin and accused him of not making Bitcoin's limitations. Another user pointed out that Bitcoin did not achieve its original purpose, on the grounds that too long trading time may hinder the adoption of Bitcoin as a point-to-point transmission. His theory that bitcoin is not manipulated has also been questioned.
