Munger Hates Bitcoin Shock

in crypto •  6 days ago

"Of course, I hate the Bitcoin success, and I don’t welcome a currency that’s useful to kidnappers and extortionists, and so forth,” said Munger, who serves as Berkshire Hathaway’s vice-chairman.

because, of course, Bitcoin invented kidnapping and extortion.

Missed the boat, by any chance?

Charlie Munger is only 97 years old and just your average billionaire.

Blind? Not much. Sour? Just a splash.

You can watch the whole 5 hours of fun here.

One thing though:

“The gambling impulse is very strong in people worldwide and occasionally it gets an enormous shove and conditions lead to this place where more people are entering the casino than are leaving everyday," Buffett said. “And it creates its own reality for a while and nobody tells you when the clock’s going to strike 12 and it all turns to pumpkins and mice."

I don't much like casinos, but owning a casino is different.

I'm sure that he is also horrified that the stock exchange exists, given his distaste for the speculation.
