Gates, one of the latest billionaire billionaires, revealed in an interview with Andrew Soren at the social network Clubhouse that he has not invested in the cryptocurrency that the world likes.
Despite Bitcoin’s recent record-setting prices, which have made significant changes to some of its smaller partners, most notably Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Gates is an exception to the magic of the digital currency.
The real reasons
Gates’ ‘contempt for bitcoin’ is not new. In an earlier interview with Bloomberg, he advised people to be careful about putting their savings into bitcoin.
“Elon has a ton of money and he’s sophisticated, so I don’t care if his Wikipedia goes up or down the order,” Gatten said. To save as much money as possible, so I’m not rushing to bitcoin, and my general thinking would be that, if you have less money than Elon, you should probably look into it. ”
When it comes to their money, Gates told Sorkin in his clubhouse chat that he prefers to invest in “companies that make such products,” and that he uses malaria and measles vaccines, for example. Presented on
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has already donated more than 2. 2.9 billion to fight infectious disease in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
Unlike Tesla’s Musk and Jack Dorsey, the CEOs of Twitter and Square, who are vocal bitcoin supporters, Gates, along with Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway, are skeptical of cryptocurrency.
