Peter Schiff Believes Bitcoin Likely to Keep Falling for This Particular Reason
Chief executive of Euro Pacific Capital and founder of SchiffGold, Peter Schiff is an economist and fund manager. He has used Twitter to poll the public about the current Bitcoin crash below $20,000
This survey by the gold bug Schiff suggests that the psychological mark of $20,000 may not be recovered by the top crypto and could go lower.
“There are more Bitcoin sellers than buyers”
Schiff tweeted that he believed that there were many Bitcoin buyers below $20,000, but that there are more people who want to sell Bitcoin above $20,000.
To find out what his Twitter followers think, he set up a poll. 52.9% of those surveyed voted that there are more Bitcoin sellers than buyers.
16336 people have already voted within 13 hours of the launch.
Peter Schiff said earlier this year that he was close to getting it right with his bearish Bitcoin predictions. This happened in June, and again nine days ago in August.
It seems that there are still many buyers for #Bitcoin under $20K. There are many sellers over $20K. The market will run out of buyers before there are sellers. Which do you think will happen first?

‘Bitcoin Derangement Syndrome’
Spencer Schiff, the son of a Bitcoiner, reproached his father for spending too much time watching price. He acknowledged that not all Bitcoin holders spend as much time on it. Schiff Jr. called his father’s actions the “Bitcoin derangement Syndrome.” ‘
Schiff Sr. wished Spencer Schiff a happy birthday on Saturday. He also mentioned his love for Bitcoin. Schiff Jr. said that his attraction to BTC was not motivated by a passion, but rather because he believes that BTC can help make humanity more technologically advanced and prosperous.
In August last year Spencer Schiff said that he was all in on Bitcoin from the gold his father trusts and loves.
