Bitcoin: PlanB predicts $100,000 by year-end but price drops
While everyone is betting on Bitcoin, either directly or indirectly, the price of BTC has fallen by 4% in the last 24 hours to below $47,000.
Yet, despite this bear market of the past two weeks, renowned cryptocurrency quant analyst, PlanB has expressed his prediction. According to PlanB, the price of Bitcoin will reach $100,000 by the end of the year, and then aim for $200,000 and above in 2022.
The 100k target is a bit of a gamble, considering that there are only two weeks left until the end of 2021, but certainly not impossible when it comes to Bitcoin which over the years has shown how its price volatility has nevertheless defined its bullish trend over the long term.
