In an unbelievable turn of events, Alex Jones, the radio shock jock and conspiracy theorist has given the green light to millions of his Infowars listeners to invest in Bitcoin.
Jones, who up till now has been a critic of the nascent cryptocurrency, announced his support on the self-titled ‘Alex Jones Show’ during an hour long interview with Max Keiser.
Jones’ appeared to urge viewers of the show to buy BTC which in turn angered long standing Bitcoin critic and gold bull Peter Schiff.
In a tweet put out earlier today, Schiff said that he thinks Jones has finally capitulated by advising his viewers to buy BTC at $10,000.
Schiff insists that Jones is already too late to the party as he believes that Bitcoin doesn’t fulfill any of the functions of real money.

Keiser, the renegade economist who co-hosts The Keiser Report on RT, also announced live on air that he expects bitcoin to hit $400,000 in the near future and that he believes that it will become the world’s reserve currency, replacing the dollar.
