He stated clearly via his Twitter handle (@PeterSchiff) that Bitcoin needed no regulation from the Government. The bullish gold preacher started by saying he is in no way against people who use Bitcoin for various purposes; “medium of exchange, store of value”.
He then stated that he doesn’t think the Government should regulate the digital asset because he personally believes it won’t work and that a number of people that use the asset would lose a lot of money if the Government should regulate Bitcoin.
