Popular American stockbroker, Peter Schiff known to be a crypto critic admitted that there are issues in his prediction when he acknowledged that the crypto king did not collapse with gold hitting a new all-time high in August.
However, Schiff is of the opinion that Bitcoin’s price recent fall to $10K points to a bear market.
The famous crypto critic and Tyler Winklevoss, Gemini co-founder had some talk about Bitcoin where Schiff admitted he was wrong.
Schiff traded words with the Gemini co-founder regarding Bitcoin’s rise to a yearly high of more than $12,000 on Aug. 17 and how it fell below $10,000 just last week.
Tyler predicted that BTC baseline for future dips would be $10,000. The crypto critic, however, predicted more woes for the crypto king saying there could be a consolidation before it crashes.
Crypto critic, Schiff predicts fall for BTC
Schiff explained that the more 10K support level is tested, the weaker BTC gets. He said further that markets rarely give investors that many chances to buy the bottom.
Another Twitter user Sharkybit got in the conversation holding unto Schiff’s position. He posted a screenshot of Schiff’s July 5 prediction that the price of Bitcoin would drop as gold surged.
“I was right on gold, but wrong on Bitcoin,” said Schiff. “The latter did manage to get through resistance and rally up to $12K, thanks in large part to a ride on gold’s coattails and a massive TV advertising buy by Grayscale.”
