Ross Gerber says Peter Schiff still has not figured out Bitcoin
In a recent tweet, Gerber Kawasaki Wealth CEO Ross Gerber commented on an article devoted to Peter Schiff and the tax problems he encountered in Puerto Rico. Gerber wrote that the gold bug has tried to talk him into moving to the Caribbean island for tax reasons. Ross Gerber ended his post with “and he still hasn’t figured out Bitcoin,” possibly implying that had the BTC antagonist embraced the flagship crypto, he could have avoided his current struggles. Per the article, the Puerto Rican bank regulator recently suspended the operations of Schiff’s Euro Pacific Bank as part of an investigation. Schiff’s bank was allegedly used for laundering funds and enabling tax evasion. The regulator has stated that the financial commentator’s bank has a “long history” of noncompliance.
