If you're wondering, neither Warren Buffett nor Jamie Dimon changed their mind about Bitcoin.
"Which one of you hates Bitcoin more?"
Warren Buffett – an American businessman, investor and CEO of multinational conglomerate holding Berkshire Hathaway – is one of the most notorious bearish folks in the traditional finance sector – it comes to Bitcoin.
Likewise, JPMorgan Chase's Chairman and CEO and former New York Federal Reserve Bank chairman Jamie Dimon has long been a figurehead for Bitcoin haters.
The Unbeliever pair appeared together on CNBC's "Squawk Box" earlier this week asking, "Which one of you hates Bitcoin more?"
Buffett: & # 39; I set a high standard & # 39;
Buffett responded to the question: [1
In fact, it's hard to name the first and most important crypto-worm rat poison "That's exactly what the oracle of Omaha Bitcoin called at Berkshire Hathaway's Annual Shareholders' Meeting this year."
Buffett also said earlier:
Regarding cryptocurrencies, I can generally say with almost certainty that they will do so. Come to a bad end. If I could buy one of the cryptocurrencies for five years, I would be glad to do it, but I would never lose a dime.
Dimon: "I do not want to be a Bitcoin spokesman"
Jamie Dimon seemed happy to make Buffett the biggest hater, and told CNBC:
I do not want to be a Bitcoin spokesman. Beware of it.
Dimon is known to Bitcoin advocates for calling the market leader in cryptocurrency "fraud" last September. He also said beforehand:
If we had a trader who traded bitcoin, I would fire it for two reasons in a second. First, it is against our rules. Second, it is stupid.
After a lot of heat for his hatred, Dimon has since withdrawn. In January, Dimon went back and declared:
I regret having made her. The blockchain is real. You can have crypto dollars and yen and stuff like that. ICO's need to be considered individually. The Bitcoin for me has always been what governments will feel about Bitcoin, as it gets very big, and I just have a different opinion than other people. The topic does not interest me at all.
