The main feature of crypto currencies is their anonymity. I don't think this is a good thing. The Governments ability to find money laundering and tax evasion and terrorist funding is a good thing. Right now crypto currencies are used for buying fentanyl and other drugs so it is a rare technology that has caused deaths in a fairly direct way. I think the speculative wave around ICOs and crypto currencies is super risky for those who go long.
Han er altså skeptisk til å investere i kryptovalutaer, og mener i tillegg at ICOer (Initial Coin Offerings) er farlige greier.
Ikke uventet var det mange som var skuffet over Gates synspunkter, mens en klarte å lede diskusjonen inn på Snapchat og Kylie Jenner.
Kyle Jenner tweeted negatively about Snapchat and they lost $1.5 billion. Imagine when Bill Gates talks about crypto... Selling all of my crypto
En leste bare: ... crypto currencyies ... go long. All in.
En annen svarte med: "Terrorists breath air too, so we should ban that. Tennis shoes as well."
