而 沃伦巴菲特的 bet was that the S&P 500 would outperform a group of hedge funds, in Morgan Creek’s wager, the cryptocurrency investment firm will take the side that their own fund will beat the performance of the stock market.
Could Warren Buffett Himself Take the Bet Against Crypto?
回到2007，臭名昭着 cryptocurrency naysayer Warren Buffett made a $1 million bet that the S&P 500’s performance over the next decade would beat that of a group of various hedge funds. Buffett won his bet in 2017 and donated the entire proceeds to charity.
Eleven years later, Morgan Creek Digital are recreating the bet with anyone keen to take the position that the S&P 500 would outperform the firm’s own crypto index fund. The firm is calling the wager the “Buffett Bet 2.0,” which (along with the huge similarities between the terms of the two bets) feels like an attempt by Morgan Creek to encourage the vocal cryptocurrency critic to take the opportunity to put his money where his mouth is.
在NewsBTC，我们报道了很多 时 on Buffett’s opposition to the digital asset industry.
Last year, the billionaire called Bitcoin “rat poison squared” in perhaps the most creative bout of baseless 名字叫 ever publically levied against the world’s leading cryptocurrency. Such colourful insults caused quite the stir in the crypto community, and even prompted Genesis Mining to buy a billboard outside Buffett’s personal offices, ridiculing him for being wrong about tech stocks earlier in his career and speculating that he might be equally from the mark about Bitcoin.
Co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital, presenter of the “Off the Chain” podcast, and all-round digital currency proponent, Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano had the following to say about the bet:
“This is a combination of our outlook not only for the upside of cryptocurrencies but also the outlook on public equities… A lot of people might look at this and just think we’re bullish on crypto — but you need to look at what asset we’re going up against. Public equities aren’t exactly at their all-time highs either.”
他继续说，这个赌注很可能会受到标准普尔500看涨或者对加密货币非常看跌的人的影响。 这听起来很像庞普认为巴菲特本人将成为摩根溪数字赌注的另一面的完美候选人。 但是，在88岁时，这可能不太可行。
