"Bill Gates, the second richest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $90 Billion, said in an interview with CNBC that he would short bitcoin if he could because it is worthless."

For some reason that line cracks me up. LOL!

"Bill Gates has joined the other wealthy Wall Street moguls who continuously criticise Cryptocurrencies. Just last week, Warren Buffet called Bitcoin ‘rat-poison squared’ and his partner Charlie Munger said trading cryptocurrencies is like trading feces."

So many gems in this article.

You would think the second richest man in the world would be smart enough to learn how to short Bitcoin if he is not being disingenuous.

I saw a picture of Munger in the news yesterday he looks like a hobgoblin.

He's kind of right though, bitcoin has no inherent value. The problem with shorting though is as his friend warren buffet says, the market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent.

Actually i just looked it up and apparently it wasn't buffet who said that but somoen else.

He should put his money where his mouth is and give it away now instead of after he's dead.

But daring him to short bitcoin doesn’t sound like the smartest thing though
