Peter Schiff has been tweeting about Bitcoin so often, slamming BTC most often, that many in the community started trolling himsaying that he is actually a big Bitcoin fan who pretends to be a gold bug.

On Dec. 29, Peter Schiff poured his criticism on the fourth largest crypto, XRP. His tweet came after XRP declined from the $0.22 level and hit $0.19, as the negative impact of the SEC's legal suit filed recently against Ripple wears on.

Notably, Schiff's son Spencer is the total opposite of his father in this respect and is pro-Bitcoin. On Dec. 29, Max Keiser called on the community to start following Spence Schiff in order to support this pro-Bitcoin son of an anti-BTC father.
