Bitcoin (BTC) bull and former IT firm MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor got into a bit of an argument with the arch-bitcoin skeptic Peter Schiff on Twitter on Monday over the former’s support for the world’s number one crypto.
Schiff has become infamous in the world of crypto Twitter, where he regularly takes the opportunity to troll BTC advocates.
The gold bug, perhaps unsurprisingly, started this latest spat by tweeting about the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)’s decision to charge the famous social media influencer Kim Kardashian – and dragging Saylor into the story.
Kardashian was charged with unlawfully advertising a “crypto security” offered and sold by EthereumMax without disclosing the payment she had received for its promotion on social media. As reported, she agreed to settle the charges, pay $1.26 million in penalties, disgorgement, and interest, and cooperate with the SEC’s ongoing investigation.
Schiff, however, tweeted to his 828,800 followers: “What about the real pumpers? Saylor had much more to gain pumping crypto than Kim.”
