Why Bitcoin Price Will Higher 2019

Share:


2019 has not started with a not-so-bad note as the master is slowly taking off. But the ETF approval is taking longer than expected, which is making the citizens restless. The Chicago Board Options Exchange also halted the listing of Bitcoin Futures. Bitcoin has touched the $4000 mark for the first time in over a month. Even Tim Draper, a famous Bitcoin enthusiast and billionaire stated that in 2 years, Bitcoin would be everywhere and fiat currencies would become archaic. He even said by 2021, everyone would buy their coffee by making their payments in Bitcoins. Another big name got attached to the Bitcoin frenzy when Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX called Bitcoin "brilliant" in public and even said BTC is better than paper money as it can transfer value.

The Six-Month Bitcoin Forecast You Need to Know Now

Bitcoin has been wallowing near long-term lows for several months now. In recent weeks the coin has begun showing bullish activity that is the first signs of movement in what will become a massive bull market. The near-term outlook is not quite as rosy, the token may continue to move sideways inside its range until one of a few things happens.
The first possibility is the U.S. government will finally adopt cryptocurrency regulation and/or allow the listing of a BTC based ETF. The next thing that may happen is an advancement in blockchain technology that may include but is not limited to enhancing BTC’s transaction speed and the much-needed and long-awaited upgrade of the Ethereum network; either could spark a massive rally in the entire market.
The final scenario, and possibly more likely, is that the market will slowly return to BTC. Investor confidence was sorely shaken last year, it is taking time for it to heal. Eventually, the market will build to a boiling point and spark a rebound in prices.

Let's understand what is the Bitcoin price prediction for 2019 and next 5 years:

#3 Fundstrat's Sam Doctor and Tom Lee Bitcoin Price Prediction

Tom Lee, ex-Chief Equity Strategist JP Morgan, and Co-founder and head of research of Fundstrat, believes that the break-even cost of mining 1 BTC directly correlates with the price of the cryptocurrency. He believes BTC would grow as he is counting on more institutional investors taking on Bitcoin and a steady increase in Bitcoin user base.Mr. Lee justified the current fall in the price of bitcoin by referring to the recent plunge in the price of tech stocks, like Amazon, Apple, and Facebook. He is optimistic that increased institutional fortunes would help turn BTC's future around very soon. Sam Doctor, an analyst from Fundsrat along with Lee predicted that by 2019, BTC might reach nothing less than $36,000, with the probability of $64,000 at the maximum and $20,000 at its lowest. A couple of days back, Tom Lee stated that the BTC fair value is much higher than the current price. The current fair value is somewhere between $13,800 and $14,800 which he believes might increase and reach $150,000 per coin as soon as bitcoin wallets account for seven percent of 4.5 billion Visa's holders.

The cryptocurrency market will experience a market optimism in 2020, as not only Bitcoin, but all the major cryptocurrencies will also experience an upward shift. The governments and the central banks will embrace the digital currencies, hence the demand should be more.
The first quarter will see a minor surge up to $25,000, after which it will jump up to 30,000 dollars in the third quarter. By the end of the year, Bitcoin will be valued at $33788.5.
