Bitcoin has had a rocky start this new year and there’s one person who has called the cryptocurrency “ridiculous.”
That person is famed investor Carl Icahn.
According to Icahn, bitcoin as well as other digital currencies are “ridiculous” and he “wouldn’t touch that stuff.”
“Maybe I’m too old for them,” Icahn remarked to CNBC on Tuesday in an interview on “Fast Money Halftime Report.”
“I don’t like the cryptocurrencies only because, maybe I don’t understand them. How do you regulate them?”
Jamie Dimon, J.P. Morgan Chase’s CEO has also called bitcoin a “fraud” and Warren Buffett once told CNBC that he thinks the craze over cryptocurrency won’t end well.
