Bitcoin prices are on fire with prices rising some 540% this year to $6,346.
"When I look at [bitcoin], I view it as a part of my portfolio that is very, very speculative," said Peter Tchir of TheStreet's Income Seeker. "I don't treat it as a currency, I don't treat it as fixed income. It's like going to Vegas and putting two up, betting on craps two the hard way. It is a very risky bet."
That said, Tchir thinks a bitcoin ETF could act as a significant boon to bitcoin prices.
