Recently, famous gold investor Peter Schiff used social media platforms (formerly Twitter) to predict a significant drop in the price of Bitcoin (BTC). The world’s largest cryptocurrency is down 12.9% from its all-time high of $73,737 recorded on March 14. Has Bitcoin peaked yet?

Schiff recalls a trend that emerged when many Bitcoin advocates started adding laser eyes to their social media profiles, a phenomenon similar to the market in 2011. This attracted interest from prominent individuals and even politicians like Wyoming Senator Cynthia Lummis. However, after Bitcoin prices plummeted the following year, returning to $16,000 in November 2022, it became a warning of excessive exuberance in the cryptocurrency market.

Schiff also expressed his skepticism about the bloat of spot Bitcoin ETFs, in part because they have enjoyed great success since their launch in January. He credits the string of record-breaking inflows will continue and Bitcoin will experience a strong reversal after recording significant gains in 2024.

Furthermore, Schiff criticized the impact of the upcoming Bitcoin halving, a measure that many analysts expect will increase the price of the leading cryptocurrency.
