Burry warned that crypto is in a speculative bubble, but he's bullish on blockchain technology and sees value in NFTs beyond the digital art world.
Ethereum and litecoin fell while meme-inspired altcoins dogecoin and shiba inu rose ahead of the bitcoin futures ETF approval.
Burry asked on Twitter about the mechanics of shorting digital coins, adding that he was only considering taking a position against them.
Elsewhere, the dogecoin spinoff shiba inu rallied 19% on Monday, gaining 265% from a week ago, while other altcoins saw general downturns.
Michael Burry underlined the scale of the meme token's supply by noting that a quadrillion seconds is about 32 million years.
Move over, dogecoin. A spin-off, shiba inu, is on a tear, having gained about 350% in a month - roughly what bitcoin's gained in a year.
Shiba inu coin, a meme cryptocurrency akin to dogecoin, has powered higher after Elon Musk tweeted a picture of his dog.
The parody coin has surged nearly 8,000% in a year, according to Coinbase data. It's still worth less than a penny, though.
It took just four months to double the number of global crypto users from 100 million to 200 million.
At 7:23 am ET, Musk published a tweet to his 57 million followers saying "My Shiba Inu will be named Floki."
The price of the meme-based token could double as the cryptocurrency market recovers from the recent crash, according to FXStreet.
eToro's move helped dogecoin soar to record highs in early May, generating publicity for the $9.6 billion trading app.
The crypto billionaire also said that the cryptocurrency world is often too angry, and that his firm Galaxy Digital is close to a huge hire.
Buterin said he is taxed as a Singaporean citizen, where the rules are "significantly cleaner than in the US or Canada," Bloomberg first reported.
Shiba Inu creators gave 50% of all tokens to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin upon its launch. Buterin says he'll destroy or donate what he owns.
The Mumbai-based WazirX exchange, which is owned by Binance, listed the new token on Thursday, according to a blog post.
As Shiba Inu coin skyrocketed by more than 10,000%, a New York family's $8,000 investment reportedly turned into almost $9 million in crypto holdings.
