Famous Bitcoin critic talks about BTC entering the bear market

Peter Schiff, a famous Bitcoin critic and gold advocate, has said that BTC’s recent fall marks a new bear market. In response to a tweet by Tyler Winklevoss (the co-founder of Gemini exchange), Schiff credited BTC’s surge over the last two months to a spillover effect from gold and a TV ad campaign.

Winklevoss said that BTC’s ability to stay above the $10,000 mark even during a dip indicates an oncoming breakout. To this, Schiff responded that the price level could easily be a pre-breakdown consolidation and did not necessarily signify a bottom. 

In July, Schiff had predicted Bitcoin to drop below $9,000 and “crash” while gold would surge simultaneously. Upon being called out for his failed BTC crash prediction, Schiff responded that he was only wrong because of a strong performance residual effect. According to him, the flagship currency also benefited from the effect of a highly visible TV ad campaign by investment firm Grayscale.
