# Warren Buffett

Warren Buffet (born in 1930) is an American businessman and investor, best known in the crypto community as a vocal critic and skeptic regarding the potential and value of the Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. As of 2019, Buffet is considered the third richest person in the world and his word still carries weight in the global business community. Yet, his role as a public speaker is often used to deliver anti-Bitcoin statements, earning him a regular place in the news on the industry. In his statements, Buffet has both described Bitcoin as a “gambling device” and a product which has no unique value at all. The fact that Buffet has once admitted being wrong about Google and Amazon prompted some crypto enthusiast to launch a public counter-campaign against his disparaging comments about Bitcoin.
