Analysts are sure that Bitcoin still has room to grow in this market cycle. Commenting on the factors that will drive BTC from the current price region of $100,000 and beyond this market cycle, Real Vision’s CEO Raoul Paul said:
“Bitcoin’s performance is SO dominant and SO all-encompassing that it is going to suck in every single asset narrative dry and spit it out. Never before in my career have I see a trade so dominant that holding any other assets makes almost no sense. The macro, flows, technology, demography and societal strains have all converged to this moment in time and the definite answer from markets is – #bitcoin.”
Tyler Winklevoss is also huge on bitcoin. The Gemini co-founder and billionaire said that he believes the coin will hit $500,000 this market cycle as he expects the coin to surpass gold. He believes that BTC is better than gold for multiple reasons like the fact that it is scarce, unlike gold.
