If I'm investing in Apple, I want people to think Apple is awful because they're repurchasing shares and it will go up faster. "But they come to bad endings and cryptocurrencies will come to bad endings". If you and I buy various crypto currencies, they're not going to multiply, they're just going to sit there. "As an asset class, you're not producing anything".

That's why some cryptocurrency experts think that investors should ignore Buffett's and Munger's repeated bitcoin bashing. You don't defensive if you're buying something that produces something. "You can get that and it will feed on itself for a while - and sometimes for a long while - and sometimes to extraordinary numbers".
