Billionaire bitcoin investor Michael Novogratz told CNBC on Wednesday that even his bullish outlook for the adoption of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies by major institutions wasn't aggressive enough.

The latest example comes from Goldman Sachs, which is planning to offer crypto investment options to its wealth management clients in the second quarter.
