CNBC reported earlier that the 97-year-old Charlie Munger, Berkshire Hathaway Vice Chairman, has called bitcoin “disgusting and contrary to the interests of civilization” at Berkshire’s annual meeting with its shareholders.

Munger further explained and said:

I think I should say modestly that the whole damn development is disgusting and contrary to the interests of civilization.

Anthony Pompliano, one of the co-founders of Morgan Creek, made a brilliant response to the old Munger’s statement:

Now people, tell me who is the one “disgusting and contrary to the interests of civilization”?
