Google Says Warren Buffet Is The CEO Of Bitcoin
We the faithful followers of The Google Search Engine often depend on the platform for even our smallest of the queries. A not much-publicized fact is that Google could make mistakes while delivering our solutions to us. For example, a Google search regarding “CEO of Bitcoin” or “Bitcoin CEO” informs you in its information carousel that Bitcoin has more than one CEOs. Notably not all the “CEO’s” of foremost cryptocurrency really appreciate or approve of the token.
Although the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology is slowly building up mainstream recognition, most laymen still construct their outlook about the digital assets with incorrect assumptions. A common misunderstanding is that cryptocurrencies have a person/company in charge of them. Bitcoin (BTC) is not a company and nor it constitutes of a CEO or Board of Directors, that is unless you ask Google.
Bitcoin hating CEOs
The hickup in Google algorithm was first pointed out by Redditors. So if you ask Google about the CEO of Bitcoin, the search engine gives you an array of CEOs. Interesting or shall we say a comically the list includes well- known (in the crypto industry at least) Bitcoin haters. Although a superstar investor, Warren Buffet detest the token and calls “Bitcoin a Bubble”; then there is Chase Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan (not BTC) who cryptocurrency a “scam” in August. Another hater joining the ranks of Bitcoin CEO is Ajay Banga, CEO of Mastercard who called cryptocurrency a “Junk” in July.
In 2012, Google introduced the information carousels, which attempt to answer user’s query by searching the data within the search engine algorithmically. Undoubtedly quite helpful in certain scenarios, it does sometimes illustrate inaccuracy as shown in the aforementioned example.
A Google spokesperson wrote Motherboard in an email:
“Entities in the Knowledge Graph and associations between them are automatically generated based on available information on the web. It’s not always perfect, and when we’re made aware of incorrect associations, we work to fix the error.”
While we can pardon our trustworthy(almost always) Google for the mistake, but calling Bitcoin’s most high-profile haters the in charge of tokens isn’t that great for Bitcoins reputation.
