Prominent Bitcoin critic and CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, Peter Schiff, has taken to Twitter to share that the stock price of Galaxy Digital Holdings (GLXY) has been dropping and, by the time the tweet was posted, it had plummeted a whopping 63 percent from its high in April.

This GLXY drop is certainly not good for Bitcoin, Schiff is certain, and he expects that this plunge may even push Bitcoin below the current $30,000 support level.

GLXY down 63 percent from April all-time high

Galaxy Digital Holdings, as Schiff reminds the audience, belongs to the Galaxy Digital crypto hedge fund run by Bitcoin bull and former Goldman Sachs partner Mike Novogratz.

The stock price of Galaxy Digital Holdings has been falling since its historic peak of $33.80 reached on April 13, when the volume was close to 830,000.

On Thursday, it was down seven percent to a four-month low, according to Schiff's tweet, then it declined by eleven percent, reaching an overall decline of a massive 63 percent from the aforementioned all-time high.

Peter Schiff believes that GLXY going down for that long a time is not a good sign for Bitcoin, the flagship cryptocurrency. Being a gold fan, Schiff does his best to advocate against Bitcoin. However, he tweets far too often about Bitcoin, despite being a BTC hater as many in the crypto community believe.

Schiff believes GLXY may drop further when BTC goes below $30,000

Galaxy Digital Holdings' stock price was "dropping like a stone," Schiff wrote in a comment to his own tweet, assuming that when Bitcoin drops below the $30,000 level, GLXY may drop even further.

Mike Novogratz is a Bitcoin bull. In May, he predicted that BTC should bottom out at the $40,000 level, but that forecast did not come true.

He also bets on Ethereum, stating recently that the second-largest cryptocurrency may end up eclipsing Bitcoin one day. Back in 2015, he was the first institutional investor from Wall Street who bought half a million Ether from Vitalik Buterin at approximately $0.99.

As reported by U.Today, in a recent interview, Novogratz revealed that around 85 percent of his net worth is in cryptocurrencies.
