Bitcoin Tops as “The Most Important Thing” in Poll by Billionaire Michael Dell

Billionaire Charlie Munger Labels Bitcoin "Stupidest Investment Ever”

Bitcoin has emerged as the top choice in a poll by billionaire Michael Dell, founder of Dell Technologies, on social media platform X. 

The poll, launched on Friday, asked users to weigh in on the most important issues of the current generation, offering options such as AI, Bitcoin, love, and relationships.

By Saturday noon, Bitcoin was leading with 44.7% of the nearly 55,000 votes cast, underscoring cryptocurrency’s growing interest and importance among the public. This poll captured the attention of both tech enthusiasts and the crypto community, sparking lively discussions.

Simon Dixon, a prominent figure in the cryptocurrency space, defended Bitcoin’s top position, stating, “Freedom to own your own money, freedom to spend your own money, and freedom to protect your money from inflation.” This sentiment resonated widely, highlighting the appeal of Bitcoin as a decentralized financial tool that empowers individuals.

Michael Saylor, founder of MicroStrategy, which holds the largest amount of Bitcoin among publicly listed companies in the US, responded with a simple heart emoji, reflecting his long-standing support for the cryptocurrency. Saylor has been a vocal advocate for Bitcoin, often referring to it as “digital gold” due to its limited supply and value preservation qualities.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk, the world’s richest man and CEO of Tesla, joined the conversation with his characteristic humor. 

“Sentimental fool that I am, I tapped “Love and relationships,” Musk wrote.

Notably, Musk, whose company Tesla holds close to 10,000 BTC, has been a staunch advocate of Bitcoin. Last year, the billionaire hinted that Tesla could potentially reinstate Bitcoin payments, having previously shelved these plans, citing concerns about energy consumption.

Interestingly, Michael Dell himself has shown increasing interest in Bitcoin recently. Just last week, he shared a post on X stating, “Scarcity creates value,” referencing Bitcoin, which sparked engagement from the crypto community. Michael Saylor responded by calling Bitcoin “digital scarcity,” Dell retweeted Saylor’s message, further amplifying the conversation.

In a playful follow-up, Dell posted an image of the Cookie Monster from “Sesame Street” indulging in digital gold, reinforcing that Bitcoin is becoming mainstream.

According to Forbes, Dell, with a net worth of $109 billion, ranks as the 14th richest person. Although it remains unclear if DELL is adding Bitcoin to its portfolio, the billionaire’s growing interest in Bitcoin aligns with the increasing acceptance of cryptocurrency among major corporations and other ultra-high-net-worth individuals, particularly following the approval of several spot Bitcoin ETFs earlier this year.
