Peter Schiff is a renowned economist, and he is a chief global strategist and the CEO of Euro Pacific Capital Inc., a broker-dealer. The gold advocate has been biased towards Bitcoin in many instances. He has always considered gold as a safer and profitable commodity when compared to Bitcoin. In his most recent gold appraisal, he said that in 1792, Gold’s price was $19.39 per ounce. After 121 years, when the Federal Reserve Act was released, it’s price rose to $20.67. After 107 years, Gold has appreciated by 99%, and it has hit the $1900 mark. He is expecting that the last 1% appreciation will be a game-changer.

Institutional Investors’ Demand Rise Since The March’s Black Thursday

Schiff has claimed that institutional investors are responsible for the manipulation of Bitcoin’s price. However, according to some on-chain features, the institutional demand was gradually increasing in the first three months of the year. But from March to June, the demand saw a faster increase. People think that the main reason for the sudden appreciation of demand could be March’s market crash when BTC’s price fell $3600 and BTC’s futures contracts worth $1 billion were liquidated. However, in the next three days, the retail volumes in platforms like Coinbase considerably increased. Seeing this, institutional investors also bought a large amount of BTC shares during this recovery.

As of now, Bitcoin is trading at $9,588.62 and is up by 0.27% in the last 24 hours. The daily high is $9,646.96, and the 24-hour trade volumes stand at $35.96 billion. The on-chain features of Bitcoin are bullish and imply that it is targeting the $10000 mark.
