“Bitcoin Bear Peter Schiff Doubles Down: Even at $4,000 It’s Still a ‘Bubble'” – Coindesk | $4,461.53

There’s certainly a lot of bullishness about bitcoin and cryptocurrency, and that’s the case with bubbles in general. The psychology of bubbles fuels it. You just become more convinced that it’s going to work. And the higher the price goes, the more convinced you become that you’re right. But it’s not going up because it’s going to work. It’s going up because of speculation….

What it comes down to is that bitcoin ain’t money…The main benefit of bitcoin – the only segment of society where it’s used for something other than speculation – is crime….

This is a speculative frenzy. Right now, this is a bubble. It’s a cult.  When you’re in it, obviously you need more people to believe in it, because the price can only go up if other people buy in. In that sense it’s a natural Ponzi scheme – a lot of it is just plain greed.

Eulogy made by: Peter Schiff

Having delved into futures trading in the past, my intrigue in financial, economic, and political affairs eventually led me to a striking realization: the current debt-based fiat system is fundamentally flawed. This revelation prompted me to explore alternative avenues, including investments in gold and, since early 2013, Bitcoin. While not extensively tech-savvy, I've immersed myself in Bitcoin through dedicated study, persistent questioning, hands-on experience with ecommerce and marketing ventures, and my stint as a journalist. Writing has always been a passion of mine, and presently, I'm focused on crafting informative guides to shed light on the myriad advantages of Bitcoin, aiming to empower others to navigate the dynamic realm of digital currencies.

  1. What merchants accept ‘Gold’ as a payment?? None that I know of!! Here is a good list of those that accept Bitcoin as a payment spendbitcoins.com/places/
    Maybe Peter Schiff should do a little more research. He couldn’t tell you how Bitcoin works but then again he has an MLM Gold business online so of course he is bias!!
