Jurrien Timmer, Constancy’s director of worldwide macro, is extra clear-minded on the path for bitcoin: $100,000 by 2023.
“So this transfer up [in bitcoin] has come with out the assistance of momentum chasers, which I believe is an effective signal as a result of it means there’s something else making bitcoin go up. And, that’s elementary demand for bitcoin and its community. After I give you $100,000 [for bitcoin prices], that is a conservative estimate based mostly on the intersections of my provide mannequin and my demand mannequin,” Timmer mentioned on Yahoo Finance Live.
Many bitcoin bulls would argue $100,000 costs might be within the playing cards earlier than year-end, judging by the current buying and selling exercise within the benchmark crypto.
Bitcoin prices have rallied back to levels not seen since Could of this 12 months amid hopes for higher institutional adoption and the potential for the SEC to log off on new bitcoin ETFs quickly.
