I can’t change it as traders won’t accept it. I have to sell it first, either myself or through a broker like Bitpay. But I’m not talking about small amounts. When do I sell to take profits or reduce my losses?
Schiff already tried bitcoin and complained about the loss of his wallet password, but It made a name for itself by shaming its economic base and promoting gold as the only option to avoid inflation of fiat money.
