Bitcoin Price Could Reach $100,000 – Peter Schiff

February 17, 2021 at 10:37 by Mark Stevenson

Bitcoin skeptic Peter Schiff, who once claimed that Bitcoin (BTC) will never reach $50,000, is now saying that the possibility of Bitcoin reaching $100,000 cannot be ruled out.

In 2019, CNBC host Joe Kernen predicted that Bitcoin prices would reach $55,000 by May 2020. At the time, Schiff refuted this forecast and said “Bitcoin will never hit $50k.”

Although slightly delayed, Bitcoin prices eventually hit a record high of over $50,000 this week. On Twitter, the crypto community made a comment on Mr. Schiff’s past remarks.

Schiff, however, said he “cannot rule out” the possibility of Bitcoin prices reaching $100,000 following his misprediction. On the other hand, he said, “It is inevitable that it will drop to zero.” “If you don’t want to gamble, you should buy gold,” Schiff, a Bitcoin skeptic and ardent supporter of gold, claims in his tweet.

The flagship cryptocurrency broke the psychological mark of $50,000 on Tuesday, February 16.

Earlier, the founder of the cryptobank Galaxy Digital, Mike Novogratz, said that American companies will follow the example of Elon Musk and start investing in Bitcoin. In his opinion, this will lead to an increase in the price of the asset to $100,000.
