The Winklevoss twins were asked to respond to criticism leveled by Wall Street personalities, including legendary investor Warren Buffett, who stated bitcoin was a “real bubble,” and JP Morgan’s CEO Jamie Dimon, who claimed the flagship cryptocurrency was a “fraud.” The twins had previously addressed Dimon’s comments.

DImon has since revealed he regrets his bitcoin ‘fraud’ remark, although he remains uninterested in the cryptocurrency.
