Grift never sleeps


There is some kind of Bitcoin conference going on in (natch) Florida, which needless to say is a magnet for cynical grifters taking advantage of a prominent forum for their pump-and-dump operations:

At a bitcoin conference Thursday, billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel said Warren Buffett tops an “enemies list” of people who are trying to stop the cryptocurrency.

“Enemy No. 1,” Thiel said to a booing Miami crowd, is “the sociopathic grandpa from Omaha.” Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway is based in Omaha, Nebraska.

Thiel, who by 2018 had reportedly amassed hundreds of millions of dollars worth of bitcoin through venture firm Founders Fund, also called out JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon and BlackRock CEO Larry Fink. Thiel presented large graphics with images of the two financial executives and their bearish comments about bitcoin.

The images all contained the word “gerontocracy.” About Dimon, Thiel said his views are part of “the New York City banker bias.
