Short Link to this Quote:
Charlie Munger considers cryptocurrency gambling rather than a currency for a few key reasons. He believes that unlike traditional currencies which are backed by governments, cryptocurrencies have no intrinsic value and their price is determined purely by speculation. Since the value can fluctuate wildly based on market sentiment, Munger sees it as similar to betting on an unpredictable asset.
He also argues that the structure of cryptocurrency favors those who trade it like a commodity over long-term users, since new coins are often released which dilutes the value of existing holdings. While cryptocurrency proponents view it as a new kind of currency, Munger takes the stance that it lacks the stability and purpose of a normal currency.
