Bitcoin (BTC) reached an all-time high on November 10, 2021, worth $69,000 per token. But from this period of prosperity until today, it has lost almost 75% of its value. Since then, the flagship crypto has gained supporters, but also many detractors. Speaking of which, it seems that the most famous investor in the world, Warren Buffett, is one of the latter.
