Bill Gates took to Reddit for the sixth time on Tuesday to answer burning questions from fellow Reddit users, and discuss various topics such as the future of tech, finding success, and his thoughts on sandwiches. (Myth busted: he’s a tomato soup kinda guy.)

One would think that the father of Microsoft Corporation would put up a PC front and be picky with the questions he addresses, but his answers suggest otherwise. The tech guru and philanthropist was very friendly and honest with the community, and revolved the discussion around thinking about others and how we can all make the world a better place to live in.

One discussion that really stood out was Gates’ views on cryptocurrency, as he revealed that he is not a fan, citing how the anonymity given to buyers can do more harm than good.

He wrote: “The government’s ability to find money laundering and tax evasion and terrorist funding is a good thing. Right now crypto currencies are used for buying fentanyl and other drugs so it is a rare technology that has caused deaths in a fairly direct way.” For those who are interested in getting into the whole crypto shabang, Bill advises to consider the risky nature it entails.

We’ve curated some of the best questions and answers from the session below.
