Stupid Quotes Regarding Bitcoin

in #bitcoin3 years ago (edited)

Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger have been trashing bitcoin lately. Here are some quotes to keep in mind as the naysayers denigrate bitcoin and other crypto assets:

1876: "This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication." — William Orton, President of Western Union.

1903: “The horse is here to stay but the automobile is only a novelty – a fad.” — President of the Michigan Savings Bank advising Henry Ford’s lawyer, Horace Rackham, not to invest in the Ford Motor Company.

1961: "There is practically no chance communications space satellites will be used to provide better telephone, telegraph, television or radio service inside the United States." — T.A.M. Craven, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) commissioner.

1995: "I predict the Internet will soon go spectacularly supernova and in 1996 catastrophically collapse." — Robert Metcalfe, founder of 3Com.

2007: “There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share.” — Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO.

2018: “[Bitcoin] as an asset class, you’re not producing anything, so you shouldn’t expect it to go up. It’s kind of a pure ‘greater fool theory’ type of investment.” Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft Corporation.

Sort:  

He will be remembered in history for saying that. When you see big names start trashing bitcoin that means bitcoin is winning and those people are desperate

Gates has accomplished some great things in his life, but he is wrong about this.

They passed on Facebook and Amazon. Kick rocks to the grave old man, use young folk are going to the moon!
