Peter Schiff is sympathetic “with what [bitcoin] is trying to achieve,” but as he explains in this brief clip he believes, “they are using the wrong vehicle.” After rising from less than $20 to more than $600 in one year, many investors are wondering if bitcoin might be worth the risk, Schiff adds, nothing that early adopters pitch bitcoin as “gold 2.0″ – a digital currency that cannot be manipulated like fiat money. Bitcoins are even “mined,” similar to physical gold and silver (and are scarce and divisble); but as Schiff explains, bitcoins still fail as a substitute for gold and strongly urges investors to avoid this risky new currency. Bitcoin could very well have already hit its top, but Peter is confident gold is still well below its future record highs.
