Bitcoin [BTC] influencer Tone Vays and economist Nouriel Roubini enter battle arena

Tone Vays, the popular Bitcoin [BTC] influencer and maximalist recently posted a Twitter poll wherein he asked his followers what haircut he should get next on the pretext of discussing Bitcoin World Tour, supposedly scheduled to happen in early 2019. The tweet read:

“After 3.5 months on the #Bitcoin World Tour, it’s a Jungle under the #HODL Hat. So it’s time to finally get a haircut… I might even LIVE Stream it Again (Tomorrow night, USA time) haha…
but in the next 24 hours let’s find out WHAT HAIRCUT Tone should get “

Here, Nouriel Roubini, the predictor of the 2008 recession and crypto-rival, responded to the post, jotting down the statistics of Bitcoin’s loss throughout the year. He also called out Vays due to the devaluation of the cryptocurrency market this year. His tweet read:

“You already got a massive haircut and are now nearly bold: Bitcoin is down about 85% from the peak of a year ago. So you are totally completely scalped already. So how do you still go about 24/7 globetrotting preaching for Bitcoin? Only religious zealot belief can explain it.”

Here, Vays took time to revert and stated that he has witnessed the bear market before. He revealed that he has watched Bitcoin fall from $1,200 to $150, post which the token took a huge bounce to reach about $20,000. He also mentioned:

“Fundamentals are much stronger now, you saying it HAS to be Different this time?”

Roubini started taking a certain amount of interest in criticizing the cryptocurrency space earlier this year. One of his most popular tweets was when he took a shot at Bitcoin and Vitalik Buterin, the Co-founder of Ethereum. Here, Dr. Doom analogized Bitcoin to North Korea and Buterin to a dictator. He also mocked BTC by writing that the Gini coefficient of Bitcoin is worse than that of North Korea.
