The company that mining the cryptocurrency claims that it’s responsible for the billboard, which appeared near the office of Warren Buffett in Omaha. Despite the fact that Genesis Mining is still not confirmed, it’s obvious that behind it stands a vain publicity stunt.
Co-founder of the huge mining company Genesis Mining tweeted a billboard photo. The message displayed on the sign is clearly addressed to the old billionaire and says:
“Warren: You said you were wrong about Google and Amazon. Maybe you’re wrong about Bitcoin?”

This tweet from Marco Krohn was the obvious tanning of Buffett, to which the billionaire replied:
“Haha u crypto people are too funny”
Haha u crypto people are too funny

“Rat Poison Squared” or wrong decisions?
During the annual meeting of shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway this month, Buffet spoke about his opinion that technical companies are mistaken:
“I made the wrong decisions on Google and Amazon.”
The old money-keepers Buffett and Munger are still against cryptocurrencies. At the same meeting, at which he asked him for a loss of technology, he stated that Bitcoin was “probably rat poison squared”. Later in an interview with CNBC “Squawk Box” he attacked the supporters of crypto space to protect the digital asset class. He said:
“If people react when you criticize their investments, if they get angry, they play gambling … If they really like what they have, what’s the difference? If I criticize my wife or something, they aren’t upset about it.”
This isn’t the first time that the community of cryptocurrencies trolled Warren Buffet over their comments about Bitcoin. This month was released «Rat Poison Squared» clothing line, and even “Rat Poison Squared Coin”, referring to the extraordinary billionaire insults towards Bitcoin.
