Elon Musk shares, deletes Warren Buffett crypto meme with fake quote 08

The tweet was posted up on Monday and was deleted within a few hours, with Musk tweeting an image of Warren Buffett and a fake quote that reads: "Find as many coins as you can. And fast!" except he didn't say that... and that's probably why Musk deleted the tweet.

As for what Warren Buffett actually said, back in 2018 he said in regards to Bitcoin and cryptocurrency: "There's two kinds of items that people buy and think they're investing: One really is investing and the other isn't. If you buy something like bitcoin or some cryptocurrency, you don't really have anything that has produced anything. You're just hoping the next guy pays more".

"You aren't investing when you [buy bitcoin], you're speculating".

However, rewind back to 2006 and Buffett called Bitcoin a "mirage" at the time -- when Bitcoin was priced at around $600, compared to the price of $34,000 right now.
