How high can Bitcoin go before it reaches the top and when should you consider selling your holding
The answer is a million dollars or zero
Price predictions are always best guesses however the past always has something to say.
Bitcoin and indeed all coins are subject to price fluctuations and the occasional large correction.
However, it has traditionally returned to a higher level each time.
If it was to just double every year the magic million would be possible in just over four years. That is very possible.
The top traders or large holders own most of the coins and they see Bitcoin as a future investment gain.
People like Cathey Woods, Michael Saylor, Blackrock investments, Elon Musk, and of course the founders are holding their stake thus reducing supply to the market.
Bloomberg recently stated that as few as 1000 Whales ( Large investors) own 40% of all coins on the market.
This opens up to market manipulation should they so choose to make life difficult for mums and dads.
Is Bitcoin a store of value or a fad
On basics Bitcoin is probably worthless yet it is valued at nearly half of the whole crypto market so it has something going for it.
However, we could value Bitcoin as a disruptive technology that has shaken the world by its sheer audacity to take a place in the market.
We have seen Amazon, Facebook, and Google change the very structure of our future and were all shares that would have made us millionaires if we had faith in them and bought early.
Is bitcoin any different as it sets out to change the way we live
currently, Bitcoin is valued at $1.25 trillion
Apple $2.10 trillion
Amazon $ 1.60 trillion
Google $1.83 trillion
Facebook $1.01 trillion
These are the technologies that change the world.
Therefore for Bitcoin to equal Apple, it needs to double in price plus match a 20% annual growth
thus in a year a conservative $3 trillion or close to $150,000 a share.
Interestingly the biggest Altcoins is Etherium at $500 billion lagging a long way behind
Is this Bitcoin value real
Why do we know that Bitcoin will reach $307,000 within months, and $12 million by 2031”
The headline of a new summit hosted by some of the leading industry figures being held on November 21
The Winklevoss twins — the famous Bitcoin billionaires — have said that Bitcoin has the potential to reach $500,000 by 2030, which would put its market cap on par with that of gold, which is running at around $9 trillion.16 Sept 2021
Billionaire venture capitalist and bitcoin investor Tim Draper is sticking by his prediction that bitcoin will reach $250,000 by the end of 2022 or early 2023 despite the cryptocurrency’s wild swings in value.
What will stop Bitcoins growth
The crypto market players talk about Black Swan events or situations that change the global markets.
examples have been Covid-19, 9-11 Bombing, A financial crash, and a few middle east wars that have had big impacts.
US legislation if let lose could impact and a Chinese Yen Coin may make a difference. Unfortunately, we can not predict these future events except that we should be very aware of the possibility.
They will drop the market very quickly so your trigger finger should be ready.
As Corporations hold a large percentage of the coin market manipulation of price could happen. However, this is usually done to drive the market lower to allow new buying opportunities.
It is indeed a volatile situation.
Are your savings disappearing?
Worldwide inflation is running at a figure near 5% and bank interest is at Zero to two percent. This would mean that you are falling behind every month of the year.
The dollar is depreciating and the share market is on a wild ride that is hard to reign in.
Many currencies stand the risk of being wiped out and in many countries, housing values are going through the roof leaving many out in the cold.
Bitcoin is being recognised as stable
The growth of the Bitcoin value has been driven by institutional support. as the larger investment groups plow money into The Crypto market. They can see their asset base being diminished by rising inflation and the lack of opportunity for investment placements.
Just two years ago hardly an institution would consider an investment in this new market however now over 350,000 investors have a whole bitcoin and about 35 with billion-dollar investments. ( Michael Saylor)
They are not about to move away as the supply grows smaller and see this as a wealth hedge of stable value.
Where do you sit on that?
With a market that is desperate for returns and opportunities rare perhaps the crypto market does represent a financial store of value.
BitCoin represents nearly half of the total Crypto market and will rise to represent the equivalent security of Gold, the old world standard. With a current market cap of seven and one half trillion gold is going nowhere however it is only reasonable to expect bitcoin to have a similar value shortly.
That would mean A $360,000 bitcoin price as a starting block to take over as world standard.
Many of the better Altcoins will also represent significant value and rise in parallel to bitcoin making them equal in opportunity for investment.
The ride might be volatile as we have seen in the past however the trend is forever upward.
