Bill Gates Believes Crypto Is 100% Based on Greater Fool Theory

Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, claims that cryptocurrency is founded entirely on the Greater Fool Theory. He also took a jab at Bored Ape NFTs by saying “Obviously, expensive digital images of monkeys are going to improve the world immensely.”

He declared:

“I’m used to asset classes like a farm where they have output or a company where they make products,” and described crypto as “an asset class that’s 100% based on some sort of Greater Fool Theory that somebody’s going to pay more for it than I do.

According to the Greater Fool Theory, there will always be a greater fool in the market willing to pay a higher price for an already overvalued investment. Asset prices can, however, fall drastically when no one else is ready to pay a higher price, leaving investors with worthless investments.

Gates mentioned that he is not involved in something that “at its heart has sort of this anonymity that you avoid taxation or any sort of government rules about kidnapping fees or things. I’m not involved in that. I’m not long or short in any of those things.”

The billionaire also stated that the digital banking initiatives he supports through his charitable institutions are “hundreds of times more efficient” than crypto.
