Warren Buffett’s take on Bitcoin
Warren Buffett is a legendary investor who is known to be a rigorous Bitcoin critic. He believes BTC to be a bubble, gambling rather than investment. A few years ago, he referred to the flagship digital currency as “rat poison squared”.
Later on, the founder of the Tron blockchain Justin Sun won a chance to have lunch with him, paying over $4 million at a charity auction for it.
The event was postponed several times in the course of 2019 and finally took place in January 2020. Sun brought a bunch of other crypto influencers and heads of crypto companies along with him.
Among them was Charlie Lee, Yoni Assia, a Binance US rep, etc. CEO of Binance, CZ, politely rejected the invitation from Justin Sun.
In the course of that meeting, Sun presented Buffett with a smartphone that had some BTC, TRX and other crypto in a digital wallet.
