Bitcoin bull and El Salvadoran president, Nayib Bukele, alongside Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao have taken aim at renowned cryptocurrency critic Peter Schiff.
How’s your bank going?— Nayib Bukele (@nayibbukele) July 6, 2022
Bukele recalled one of the tweets made by Schiff in January of this year, in which he criticized BTC and suggested that MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor and Bukele might have no choice but to dump their BTC holdings if the price fell further. The El Salvadoran President responded to this by asking about Schiff's bank.
This one is a little old, but fitting for the purpose. 😂 pic.twitter.com/coUP7gIaCR— CZ 🔶 Binance (@cz_binance) July 7, 2022
The Binance CEO posted, in response to President Bukele's reply, a meme that he said was "fitting for the purpose." El Salvador President Nayib Bukele has received criticism, also from Schiff, since El Salvador accepted BTC as legal tender last year.
Peter Schiff has been on the receiving end of BTC supporters since his bank in Puerto Rico was shut down. Many saw it as an opportunity to demonstrate the potential of the cryptocurrency to achieve financial freedom, given Schiff's reputation in the crypto community as a critic of Bitcoin.
Regulators "closed" Euro Pacific International Bank's operations on July 1 due to its alleged negative capital of $1.3 million by the end of 2020 and the fact that "as a result, the entity is classified as insolvent." Euro Pacific International Bank was founded in Puerto Rico by Peter Schiff.
On July 4, Schiff used a thread on Twitter to explain why the country's regulators decided against approving a sale to a highly qualified buyer "despite no evidence of crimes" but rather went ahead to close the bank.
As reported by U.Today, El Salvador made a purchase of nearly $1.5 million worth of Bitcoin amid the recent market dip, bringing its total Bitcoin held to 2,381.
