Even after Bitcoin tanked in recent months and is now trading lower by over 50 percent from the top, Bill Gates stated that he would short the cryptocurrency.

Buffett, who is the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has historically been a harsh critic on the cryptocurrency. Or have you moved onto other digital currencies? What this means is that value is only derived because another person (the greater fool) is willing to pay a higher price.

Bill Gates concluded that the underlying blockchain technology is very important, but cryptocurrencies themselves are worthless.
"I like cryptocurrencies a lot less than you do", Munger told Buffett at a Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting this weekend.
