enthusiast Max Keiser took a gander at the recent letter Warren Buffett sent to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders and he wasn't pleased at all he saw the actions Buffett revealed in the letter as prime reasons people should buy Bitcoin instead of investing in the stock market Khan's response included tweets and interviews over this past weekend he tweeted that the letter indicated that Buffett is not satisfied with a stock market the points made in Buffett's letter may have even helped push bitcoins price above the 4,100 mark Kaiser has been very vocal about his displeasure with anything to do with traditional investing he upped the ante last week by specifically going after Buffett and what was revealed in the letter in an interview with RT published Sunday Kaiser took Buffett to task

portfolio Alex Jones is the main presenter at Infowars and he's just made another appearance on the Joe Rogan experience podcast where he discussed Bitcoin cryptocurrency and someone he's less than fond of George Soros Jones suggested that Soros had reached out to him via intermediaries in an attempt to cool the Infowars founders constant attacks on him part of the deal according to Jones meant agreeing to advertise or in Jones's words pumped Bitcoin on episode 1255 of the Joe Rogan experience Alex Jones told Rogan I got told eight years ago I got told by two different people two very well-known rich people they said Soros likes you he wants to work with you as does Alexander Soros you just need to stop attacking him and by the way we want you to pump up Bitcoin I got offered at the time about five million dollars worth of Bitcoin I think it was about 38 million by the time I got there the peak and I refused it now who knows if mr. Jones is actually telling the truth here but I will say it would be vastly entertaining to watch Alex Jones to a rant promoting Bitcoin many thanks for tuning in to today's episode if you have any questions on this particular episode or cryptocurrency more generally just drop us a line in the comments below for crypto global news I'm Edward until next time take it easy
