Peter Schiff Admits Bitcoin Buyers May Be Right About Fed and Inflation
Renowned gold investor and outspoken Bitcoin critic, Peter Schiff, has softened his stance towards the leading cryptocurrency. In a recent tweet, Schiff suggested that people who bought Bitcoin may be wrong about the digital asset but are right about the Federal Reserve and inflation.
Schiff is well known for his scathing criticism of Bitcoin, often calling those who buy it “idiots” and predicting that the price will collapse to below $10,000. However, this time around, he has tempered his language and admitted that he might be wrong.
In his tweet, Schiff said, “Most investors are oblivious to the current financial crisis and the far greater currency and sovereign debt crisis it will ultimately become. It’s just too bad HODLers didn’t buy gold. That’s why HODLERS don’t buy gold is a very bad thing.” Schiff’s tweet is an order to buy gold as a hedge against a potential crisis that he believes is looming.
Bitcoin buyers may be wrong about #Bitcoin, but they’re right about the #Fed and #inflation. Most investors are oblivious to the current #FinancialCrisis and the far greater currency and sovereign debt crisis it will ultimately become. It’s just too bad #HODLers didn’t buy #gold.

The term “HODLERS” refers to those who believe in the long-term growth potential of Bitcoin and hold onto their investments regardless of price fluctuations. Bitcoin proponents, on the other hand, view gold as an outdated currency that can be cumbersome to transport and is subject to manipulation by central banks.
Schiff’s change in tone has raised eyebrows in the cryptocurrency community, with some speculating that he may be hedging his bets in case Bitcoin’s price continues to soar. Others, however, see it as a sign that even staunch gold proponents are starting to acknowledge the role that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies may play in the future of finance.
The debate between Bitcoin and gold as a store of value is likely to continue, with both sides presenting compelling arguments. It remains to be seen whether Schiff’s call to buy gold will be heeded by investors or if Bitcoin’s upward momentum will continue.
