On Wednesday, after the bitcoin hit a new low, the bitcoin hater Nouriel Roubini tweeted about BTC;
“In less than one month, Bitcoin falls over 40% from its peak. Which institutional investors are heedless enough to invest in such a risky and volatile pseudo-asset with no intrinsic value? Roubini asked. “They should be fired on the spot if undertaking such a reckless speculative gamble,” he further added.
Even the gold bug and economist Peter Schiff believes that this is a full-fledged “bitcoin bear market”.
