Don't Ask Charlie and Warren About Bitcoin!

As long as Berkshire doesn't buy Bitcoin, opportunities are endless


Hey DEFI TIMES community,

Last weekend, the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting took place. Both Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger gave interesting insights into their investing strategy. And of course, the reporters asked them about Bitcoin.

At first, Warren didn’t want to answer but Charlie Munger couldn’t hold himself. He said:

Of course, I hate the bitcoin success and I don’t welcome a currency that’s useful to kidnappers and extortionists, and so forth. Nor do I like just shuffling out of extra billions and billions and billions of dollars to somebody who just invented a new financial product out of thin air. So, I think I should say modestly that I think the whole damn development is disgusting and contrary to the interests of civilization. And I'll leave the criticism to others.

You can interpret this quote as you like but here are two things I want to comment:

  • Charlie Munger is 97 years old; he made his fortune by investing in cash-flow producing assets, and literally has no experience with technology. Who do you think understands Bitcoin better: a digital native or someone who missed Amazon, Facebook, and the internet era in general? Charlie Munger doesn’t understand Bitcoin - and why should you ask Munger about anything he has no expertise in? Just because he made a fortune does not mean his opinion on Bitcoin is valuable.

  • Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger both embraced rational investing their whole lives. But it seems like Charlie’s emotions are quite strong: “ I hate the bitcoin success.” Hate is not something a rational investor should feel. That means Charlie is quite biased and it’s unlikely that he will ever change his opinion on Bitcoin.

One thing is clear though: as long as Charlie is bearish on Bitcoin… the opportunities are endless!
