Bitcoin and other digital currencies are just digital codes, hence, they are susceptible to fluctuation depending on the unreliable options of the trading stock of everyone. "It does create a rising price, creates more buyers ..."

Despite his negative opinions about bitcoin, Gates did admit that blockchain technology had its merit.

This is not the first time Bill Gates criticised cryptocurrencies.
