Berkshire Hathaway Vice Chairman Charlie Munger has lambasted bitcoin in the company’s annual shareholder meeting over the weekend, despite bitcoins accelerated growth.



The billionaire reunited with Warren Buffet in Los Angeles to discuss key topics in the industry, including bitcoin. 

Munger made his thoughts on bitcoin known to everyone. The 97-year old commented on the cryptocurrency stating “Of course I hate the bitcoin success”.



Bitcoin success annoys Munger

Bitcoin has undoubtedly been one of the biggest gainers in the financial markets over the last several years. Climbing over 16,000% within the last five years. 

Bitcoin has seen its popularity rise in 2021 as it broke a three year all-time high. The crypto has further risen 130% in 2021. Climbing to $65,000 at its peak.

The total market capitalization of bitcoin has recently also overtaken that of Berkshire Hathaway. 

Munger referred to his lack of investment in the cryptocurrency as being due to “somebody who just invented a new financial product out of thin air”.

Warren Buffet offered little input on the bitcoin, but did agree with Munger. Both investors have shared their negative views on bitcoin for years. With Munger previously criticizing bitcoins volatility

Talking at a shareholders meeting for Daily Journal in February, Munger said “I don’t think bitcoin is going to end up the medium of exchange for the world. It’s too volatile to serve well as a medium of exchange”.

Mass adoption continues 

Mungers comments come at a time when bitcoin is beginning to see mass adoption in the market. Online payments service PayPal has recently added cryptocurrencies to its product offering. 

With PayPal CEO Dan Schulman expecting the financial system to drastically change within the next five years. “Demand on the crypto side has been multiple-fold to what we initially expected,” Schulman said. “There’s a lot of excitement”.

Lack of education an issue

The lack of education related to the cryptocurrency market could be a factor that hinders further adoption. However Gemini Exchange is looking to change that. 

Bitcoin maximalists and twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have partnered their cryptocurrency exchange with Learn & Earn. The partnership will allow students to learn about cryptocurrencies while earning rewards in the process.
