Warren Buffett believes Bitcoin has no unique value at all

Warren Buffett thinks blockchain technology ’is important,’ but said Bitcoin has no unique value at all. Buffett reiterated his long-held views on Bitcoin, calling the way some people perceive the cryptocurrency ’a delusion’. Buffett has long been wary of Bitcoin - in May 2018, he referred to Bitcoin as ’rat poison squared’, noting that it was a ’nonproductive asset’.

It has as much value as people are willing to associate to it

Warren Buffett is an old white cis gender male. Tax him out of his money at 90%. ~ NPC#13371776

Just like anything, it’s value is based off of people’s willingness to pay for it.

Back to bed, grandpa. You're rambling again. Time for your pills. Come sit down and watch "The Wheel."

Non productive assets like the president, bankers, and politicians. The poor are weary of bank fees every time they turn around. But that's their problem right? You aren't having to choose between more groceries or sending a family member some money are you?

Non-productive doesn't mean worthless. Currency is inherently useful as a lubricant of trade. We saw the use of Bitcoin rise in Venezuela as the official currency became hyperinflated. When it can be used to fulfil a need like that it's saving people's lives. It sure as hell has value to them. Maybe Buffet lives too high up in the ivory tower to see.

I've been thinking this all along. It's just decentralized, that's it. It's still simply money.

Neither do basketball cards. But people still spend plenty of money on them.

Oddly I agree with him even though I believe Warren Buffet has no unique value at all. Parasites are solely detrimental to their hosts and benefit only themselves.

He probably does hold bitcoin knowing his word is gold in the financial system. An endorsement from the wizard of Wall Street would bring a massive wave with it. He's the OG hodl
