Euro Pacific Capital CEO Peter Schiff is well-known in the crypto community for his heavy critiques of Bitcoin. Recently, Schiff reached headlines with a story about losing the private keys to his Bitcoin wallet.

Even though Schiff stands against everything crypto and supports the legacy financial system with banks, he is now warning that cutting interest rates by the Fed could have a negative impact on the US economy.

The community responds to his tweet – ‘Bitcoin fixes it’.

‘Cutting interest rates is a mistake’

Peter Schiff has taken to Twitter to comment on the Fed possibly implementing lower interest rates – a step the US Central bank may take to try to save the stock market and the economy of the country the rest of the world depends on.

He points out that rate cuts made earlier (starting from the financial crisis of 2008) have put the economy into its current state and made it vulnerable.

Cutting rates and quantitative easing cannot solve real economic problems, Schiff reminds his followers in his next tweet. They only make the root of the problem worse, he says.

‘Bitcoin fixes it’

Crypto analyst PlanB has also touched on the problem of negative rates in his recent tweet. He states that, where he lives, negative interest rates have already been implemented with savings accounts. PlanB also says that pension funds are having difficulty making returns.

Bitcoin could be the answer to all of that, the analyst says, as it is now considered to be a safe haven asset by the crypto community.

Peter Schiff disagrees

After a recent interview Morgan Creek Digital partner Anthony Pompliano gave to CNN, Schiff initiated a dispute with Pomp on Twitter regarding Bitcoin.

Schiff got on his hobby-horse trying to convince Pompliano that BTC is not a safe haven asset.

In response to his BTC criticism, when Schiff was tweeting about losing the private keys to his BTC wallet, CZ of Binance pointed out that the Euro Pacific CEO is doing crypto a favour by making more people aware of it on his Twitter account.
