Thiel Blasts Dimon, Buffett, Fink as ‘Finance Gerontocracy’
Updated on

Billionaire entrepreneur Peter Thiel called Warren Buffett, Jamie Dimon and Larry Fink members of a “finance gerontocracy” opposed to a “revolutionary youth movement” that embraces Bitcoin.

In his keynote speech at the Bitcoin 2022 conference in Miami Thursday, Thiel blamed the finance titans for the digital currency’s failure to reach $100,000, a benchmark popular among the asset’s die-hard supporters.
