Peter Schiff’s Bitcoin $1,000 Prediction Falls Flat as Gold Drops 4%
William Suberg's original article for cointelegraph.com reduced by 74%
Bitcoin rising above $8,500 appears to have left gold proponent Peter Schiff with egg on his face after he predicted its imminent downfall to $1,000. Data from Cointelegraph Markets and precious metals monitor Kitco showed that while Bitcoin has gained 7.5% over the past week, gold has conversely slipped 4%.Gold expected to hit $1,500 lowsAfter reaching highs of $1,610 on Jan. 8, XAU/USD has fallen dramatically, trading at $1,546 as of press time on Tuesday.
The trend is all the more conspicuous to cryptocurrency supporters, coming at a time when geopolitical upheaval centered on Iran seemed to buoy Bitcoin price performance. While not everyone agrees, a commonly-held theory suggests that both Bitcoin and gold benefit from such political instability. Schiff's BTC "Pattern" nowhere in sightThe underwhelming progress for gold piles added pressure on those who privilege the precious metal over Bitcoin.
Not only has the omen not come true, but it is Bitcoin which has already firmly beaten gold as an investment opportunity just two weeks into the new year. Just days before 2020 began, Schiff had complained that Bitcoin was the only asset not rallying.
