Warren Buffet wouldn't touch Bitcoins, because he isn't good at securing his wallet. All hacker will target his computer knowing that he would have the most Bitcoin, possible to even have more coins then the creator...

I don't understand why someone in Buffet's position would outright never buy bitcoins. So what if it's risky? If you put 100.000 USD into it, and Bitcoin just collapses, so what? You probably have more money between your coach cussions. It's not like you'll be on the street, dancing for nickles. On the other hand, if Bitcoin goes mainstream big-time, the upside is astronomical. I don't understand this attitude.
The issue isn't that bitcoins are risky. The issue is that bitcoins are at best an instrument/currency/commodity/tool. Buffet invests in stocks because stocks are shares of companies, and companies do things - build things - constantly produce real value by plying a trade that he can model in his head and see why it constitutes economic over-unity. Whereas, you buy a million BTC and put it in an address, and the value might go up but those bitcoins aren't doing anything. They're just sitting there like a big fried egg.

But he could invest indirectly in bitcoin them by buying up bitcoin companies... Hopefully gox!
That'd certainly be something to see. I'd be surprised if it was Gox, though, given how much hot water they've hopped into lately (losing their ability to send wires, trade engine malfunctions...)

Wrong, Buffet buys companies not stocks, he has said it numerous times, his purchase mechanism happens to be via stock.

He has also said often enough that he wishes he could buy smaller companies, but can't.

Small Investments, High Returns
During a shareholders meeting in 1999, Warren Buffett lamented that he could generate 50% returns if only he had less money to invest. He couldn't compound $100 million or $1 billion, at a 50% rate. That's because it's the smaller, faster growing companies that typically offer the highest returns. Small capitalization stocks, however, can't help Warren Buffett. For example, if Buffett invested in a $240 million market cap company and its value doubled, the impact would increase Berkshire Hathaway's portfolio by just 0.3%. Considering the amount of research involved, it may not be worth his while. Buffett stays away from small cap stocks, despite their potential for high returns because he neither wants to cause a run up in the price of a small cap stock, nor does he want a controlling stake. (Find out why small caps have more potential for growth, read Small Caps Boast Big Advantages.)

Warren buffet still remains in formidable name as an investor that never own a bitcoin. Obviously at his age it might difficult to accept new technology believing in obvious than the abstract. His long hatred for cryptocurrency had been read in the news and article severally has it been mentioned in every of his interview. However, none of opinion even as a voice of business adviser in USA for the government could affect the coin. Am not worried but concern with his frequency on the news with similar answers and view from new investors.  If any new investors who believes in the old man's cryptocurrnecy approach you on the bases of these beliefs. How will you reply?

Warren Buffet is actually against Bitcoin and always say negative things about it. Who knows that he may have some Bitcoins secretly or may plan to acquire some, my thought is, he is too old and his thoughts is also like him so it is strange for him to get into Bitcoin. Old school guys never accept latest technology that easy. Innovative technology always far from the reach of old school guys.

That's why sometimes I don't trust the public profess of those business men in politics. Bitcoin is anonymous and anyone can hold it even while saying word against it. Who knows if he doesnt own bitcoin?

Warren doesn't invest in assets which he doesn't understand. Be like Warren.
