Celebrity investor Kevin O’Leary says he will only buy bitcoin mined sustainably in countries that use clean energy — and not “blood coin” mined in China, APA reports citing CNBC.

“I see over the next year or two, two kinds of coin,” he told CNBC. “Blood coin from China, (and) clean coin mined sustainably in countries that use hydroelectricity, not coal.”

The chairman of O’Shares ETFs once called bitcoin “garbage,” but recently changed his mind and said he would allocate 3% of his personal portfolio to the cryptocurrency, according to a CoinDesk report.
