Peter Schiff stirs reactions from crypto fans in his latest tweet

In this post:

Popular economist, financial broker, and author, Peter Schiff out of the blues has come out to say some positive about cryptocurrency. Schiff is commonly known to bash crypto always in his most recent tweet, however, claimed that crypto can always rise in value but then has failed to serve its purpose as money.

Peter Schiff had openly dismissed Bitcoin

Overtime, Schiff has openly dismissed Bitcoin alongside its benefits saying on several occasions that it can’t serve its main purpose as money or a store of value.

Lately, Schiff ran Bitcoin down saying that it would never value up to $100,000 as ordinarily, this value is quite high, Bitcoin has however been promising overtime. Bitcoin hiking up to $100,000 equates to a market capitalization of around $1.8 trillion which kooks quiet unachievable for the Crypto but then Bitcoin which is valued around $180 billion looked unachievable previously.

However, in Schiff’s most recent tweet, he claimed he never mentioned that the price of Bitcoin couldn’t increase. He went further to mention that whoever bought Bitcoin 10 years ago and sells now would earn a lot. But he remained adamant that Bitcoin would not make it as money.

A second thought on Peter Schiff claims

Schiff claims that Bitcoin would not do well as money could be true in the sense that if the Crypto is continued to be measured in USD value then, there’s still much to be done to make it a traditional medium of exchange.

Currently, people who possess the Crypto also don’t buy to spend but instead buy to convert into fiat at a higher price. However, the Crypto was created to be a peer-to-peer electronic cash system such that it is to be a scarce, immutable and censorship-resistance internet money.

However, Bitcoin remains a good store of value in the sense that its price has continued to increase over time making a lot of people invest and believe in it. Jerome Powell, US federal reserve chairman too believes that BTC is a store of value.
