CZ Says “Bitcoin is Dead” Headlines Are An Indication Of Bitcoin’s Bottom, Peter Schiff Disagrees


Binance CEO “CZ” has given his opinion on Bitcoin’s bottom at a time when crypto analysts and Bitcoin advocates are trying to anticipate a bottom. When “bitcoin is dead” stories appear, he believes the king crypto will bottom out. As a result, he argued, everyone who bought Bitcoin when such a sentiment existed in the past gained the most money.

CZ Notes BTC Could Bottom When Negative Sentiment Surge

In a tweet on June 20, Binance CEO “CZ” remarked that anyone who bought the pioneer crypto when the public consensus was that “bitcoin is dead” got a greater return on investment. Furthermore, the bottom is reached when people lose hope of a BTC recovery. Bitcoin is a great buy-the-dip opportunity at these prices.

He said:

“Historically speaking, if you bought Bitcoin every time there is a “bitcoin is dead” headlines, you would have done well. Logic: when they lose hope, that’s when the bottom is in.”

The Binance CEO, however, cautioned that he was not endorsing this or any other technique in the future. Many people believed the Bitcoin bubble will collapse when the price of the cryptocurrency rose above $65,000. Speculative bubbles have already occurred in 2011, 2013, 2017, and 2021-22.

The benchmark coin is currently trading at $20,440 up roughly 15% from its low of $17,708 on June 18.

Several crypto investors and firms, like Digital Currency Group, have acknowledged that they are buying BTC now while it is still cheap.

“$20K Is The New $30K” For Bitcoin

On the other hand, Peter Schiff has urged Bitcoin investors not to get too happy if the price of the cryptocurrency rises above $20,000 again. He feels that $20,000 is the “the new $30,000” and that tiny increases are to be expected before a huge drop. He went on to say that big dips don’t happen in a straight line, and the slow descent is “extremely orderly.”

Schiff also noted that he has yet to see any evidence of capitulation, which would indicate a bottom in the current crypto bear market.

Schiff predicted that the king crypto will go as low as $6,000 on many occasions earlier this year. He tweeted over the weekend that his prior prognosis of the cryptocurrency market falling below $800 billion has been confirmed, but it took a few more days, and altcoins fared better than he predicted.
