The Guy Who Calls the Bitcoin Economy ‘Digital Beanie Babies’ Now Accepts Bitcoin Cash

‘Gold Bug’ Peter Schiff’s Company Now Accepts Bitcoin CashThe economist and notorious ‘gold bug’ Peter Schiff has been a ‘bitcoin hater’ for quite some time. Schiff believes that bitcoin is worthless and considers the cryptocurrency to be much like the tulip or Beanie Babies hype. This past summer Schiff debated Max Keiser and said that “cryptocurrency market signals are wrong.” At the time Schiff stated:   

“[Bitcoin] is being created but there is no real value in bitcoin; it’s all based on faith. If somebody doesn’t want your bitcoin there’s nothing you can do with it, right?” asks Schiff during the debate with Keiser.

However, even though Schiff hates bitcoin he still accepts the cryptocurrency through the payment processor Bitpay. During the Libertycon conference in Washington, DC, Schiff told the audience that he immediately cashes out into fiat during his debate with Bitcoin.com’s Communications Ambassador Sterlin Lujan.

Schiff Gold Supports Any Free Market Approach to Money and Barter

Now the economist’s bullion company Schiff Gold accepts the decentralized cryptocurrency bitcoin cash (BCH). Although Schiff Gold accepts BCH through the payment processor Bitpay the company says the firm believes precious metals is the best solution for a safe-haven asset.

“We strongly recommend physical precious metals as the best long-term, safe-haven assets and caution our clients to avoid speculative investments,” explains the company’s website.

However, we also support any free market approach to money and barter and recognize bitcoin as a valid payment system — We are proud to work with Bitpay to process your transaction in bitcoin.

Bitcoin cash supporters were pleased to hear about Schiff Gold accepting BCH, as there are now many precious metals businesses that accept BCH as well. Currently, bullion dealers who accept bitcoin cash include JM Bullion, Silvergoldbull, and Apmex.
