Bill Gates – ‘NFTs & Crypto Based on Greater Fool Theory’

Bill Gates says digital assets like crypto and NFTs are ‘100% based on greater fool theory’, calling BAYC NFTs ‘expensive images of monkeys’. The Microsoft co-founder is the 4th richest man in the world with an estimated net worth of over $133 billion as of 2022. Shortly after Gates’ comments Bitcoin bounced more than 10% from around $20,000 to over $22,400, reminiscent of when McDonald’s mocked crypto investors and it marked a local bottom this time last year. Similarly the Ethereum price spiked from around $1,000 to over $1,200, the main cryptocurrency asset used to buy NFTs. Solana, also used to buy NFTs, rallied even harder. Buy Crypto Now Cryptoassets are a highly volatile unregulated investment product. Your capital is at risk. Bill Gates Crypto Criticism Bill Gates made the comments at a TechCrunch conference on Tuesday, but has been a long time detractor of cryptocurrency. Last year he commented on Elon Musk, who became the richest man in the world knocking Jeff Bezos off the number one spots, deciding to invest in crypto: <!–esi –> ‘Elon has tons of money and he’s very sophisticated, so I don’t worry that his Bitcoin will sort of randomly go up or down. I do think people get bought into these manias who may not have as much money to spare. My general thought would be that if you have less money than Elon, you should probably watch out. I’m not bullish on Bitcoin.’ The Bitcoin price is 30% lower today than when […]

Actor Seth Green Pays $300,000 to Recover his Stolen BAYC NFT

Seth Green, a star on the Family Guy TV show, lost NFTs from the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) collection last month through a phishing attack. The actor has now recovered the stolen pieces worth more than $300,000. Seth Green recovers the BAYC collection The actor apparently parted with 165 Ether (ETH), valued at over $295,000 at the ongoing prices, to buy back the stolen BAYC after it was sold to another collector. The BAYC NFT #8398 had cost the actor $200,000 to buy. The NFT was also meant to be used in an upcoming TV show dubbed “White Horse Tavern.” Green appeared in a Twitter chat where he confirmed buying the NFT, adding that it was “home.” The transaction records show that the funds used to buy back the NFT were sent from Green’s wallet address to an NFT collector dubbed “DarkWings84” via the NFT Trader crypto escrow platform. The trader said they bought the NFT out of “good faith.” The collector bought the NFT stolen from Green after being scammed by a fake NFT mint. Towards the end of last month, Green said that he would file a lawsuit against DarkWings84 but later tweeted that he had managed to get in touch with the collector. <!–esi –> DarkWings84 and Green used the NFT Trader escrow platform to buy the NFT because it had been frozen by OpenSea. The OpenSea NFT marketplace had marked the Bored Ape #8398 for having “suspicious activity.” Green’s stolen BAYC raises issues with NFT […]
