Warren Buffett Criticism | Bulls Response to Warren Buffett is Surprising!

Warren Buffett criticism: Warren Buffett, the legendary investor, has frequently been criticizing the cryptocurrency markets. The chairman of Berkshire Hathaway doesn’t have any enthusiasm in the emerging market. He believes cryptocurrencies are neither an asset nor a currency. And thus, he thinks it shares similarities more towards gambling and not investing.     The major reason for his rejection lies behind the concept of fair value. Stock market investors always prefer to gauge the fair value of the asset before placing any investment.    During the annual shareholder meeting of Berkshire Hathaway on Saturday, Buffett called Bitcoin (BTC)“rat poison squared.” The world’s third wealthiest investors also promised that he will never invest in the cryptocurrency market. Bulls are Angry About Warren Buffett Criticism Bulls are blaming Warren Buffett for the collapse in price and of hindering the bull-run that almost hit the $10K mark during the weekend.  Bitcoin and other digital currencies were in the red on Monday, while the total cryptocurrency market capitalization crumpled from $465 billion to $435 billion. Bulls consider Buffett’s cynicism is unfair. DeVere Group founder and CEO, Nigel Green said, “What I do find monumentally baffling is that two of the world’s most successful investor cannot …

Warren Buffett on Bitcoin | Still Not a Fan

Warren Buffett on Bitcoin (BTC) Now Warren Buffett has never shown himself to be a fan of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. In an interview with Yahoo Finance, Buffett still isn’t jumping on the crypto train. Buffett told Yahoo Finance that he doesn’t see Bitcoin as an investment. Instead, he believes it’s a gamble. He continued to explain that there isn’t anything wrong with that, per say, but that it’s important not to treat Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as anything more than a game. You can’t expect it to behave like an investment, because it isn’t an investment. Buffett explained: “If you buy something like a farm, an apartment house, or an interest in a business… You can do that on a private basis… And it’s a perfectly satisfactory investment. You look at the investment itself to deliver the return to you. Now, if you buy something like bitcoin or some cryptocurrency, you don’t really have anything that has produced anything. You’re just hoping the next guy pays more.” He continued to explain that “You aren’t investing when you do that. You’re speculating. There’s nothing wrong with it. If you wanna gamble somebody else will come along and pay more money tomorrow, …

Verge (XVG), Stellar (XLM), Cardano (ADA)

The crypto market is back in the green today – for the most part. Verge (XVG), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA) are on the rise, so what’s happening? Verge (XVG) Verge (XVG) is currently selling for $.065921, which puts the coin up 8.77% in the past 24 hours. Source: CoinMarketCap Last week, Verge announced its partnership with Pornhub and it generated a mixed bag of reactions. XVG’s price rose above $.10 leading up to the announcement, but it has since winnowed out. Were investors getting cold feet? The Pornhub partnership may not be all that Verge had up its sleeve. There are twitterings of a few other partnerships around the corner – will these ones be more acceptable to people? Let’s dig in. The Verge team itself has been relatively quiet since the Pornhub announcement, so a lot of this comes down to fan whispers – so take it with a grain of salt. Originally, people thought that Verge’s mystery partner was going to be TokenPay. While this didn’t happen on April 17th, that doesn’t mean that it’s never going to happen. The hope is that Verge will pair with TokenPay to create a crypto debit card that incorporates XVG, and …
