As CEO and founder of this company and one of the richest men in the world, his investments have been wide-ranging and vast.
In May 2018, he sent Apple shares to an all-time high after he bought 75 million shares in the first quarter of the year.
Since Bitcoin became a sensation at the end of 2017 and the price of the currency went through the roof, Mr Buffett has steadfastly remained sceptical.
Back in May, Buffett revealed to CNBS that bitcoin was ‘probably rat poison squared.’
The main issue that Buffett has with Bitcoin, is that it has no intrinsic value.
‘If you buy something like bitcoin or some cryptocurrency, you don’t have anything that is producing anything,’ Buffett said in an interview with Yahoo Finance.
‘You’re just hoping the next guy pays more. And you only feel you’ll find the next guy to pay more if he thinks he’s going to find someone that’s going to pay more.
‘You aren’t investing when you do that, you’re speculating.’
