CNBC’s superstar stock picker Jim Cramer remains bullish on Ethereum despite the fact that the cryptocurrency is down 52 percent from its May 12 all-time high of $4,356.   

In a recent tweet, the “Mad Money” host says that he’s sticking to his position, but he’s reluctant to increase it as of now.

During a recent interview with TheStreet, he said that Ethereum was going “to run,” describing it as “the pied piper” of crypto.
