The end of the mania?

As reported by U.Today, Bitcoin evangelist Max Keiser recently visited the InfoWars headquarters where he officially made his $400,000 price prediction. According to Keiser, its current $9,600 price tag is still attractive given that the leading cryptocurrency has a lot of upside potential.       

Schiff insists that Jones is already too late to the party while predicting that this mania could soon come to its end. He believes that Bitcoin doesn't fulfill any of the functions of actual money.

Notably, both of them started talking about Bitcoin as early as in 2011. However, unlike Keiser, Schiff lacked the foresight to predict that BTC would end up becoming the best-performing asset of the decade and remained a stubborn bear.
