Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency in the world, has experienced a rollercoaster ride in price movements over recent years. Many traders and investors speculate on Bitcoin’s future price. There is also a lot of interest to learn about the factors that drive its price movements.
A prominent crypto analyst suggested that Bitcoin could hit a new low in a tweet. This led many to be bearish about the cryptocurrency. The analyst’s prediction was not true as Bitcoin prices rose from $15.5K up to $22.1K following support from major crypto companies such as Luna, Celsius and Voyager.
Despite the rally, there are still some who remain bearish about Bitcoin, believing its future price could decline. But, it is not clear if these bearish predictions are valid.
According to our view, no. Although Bitcoin can be volatile and its price may fluctuate dramatically at times, the upside potential for Bitcoin is much greater than the downside risk.
Bitcoin’s price has risen from $600 to $60,000 per year over the last few years. There have been times when Bitcoin’s value dropped, as in 2018, when it fell from $20,000 to $4,000 below its peak, but overall the trend has been up.
This upward trend can be attributed to a variety of factors. They include the growing acceptance of Bitcoin by financial institutions and mainstream investors, an increasing demand for Bitcoin’s value as a store, and the limited supply, which means that its price will increase as more people demand it.
Although there are some risks involved in investing in Bitcoin (e.g. regulatory crackdowns and technical issues), these risks can be outweighed by the possibility of huge gains.
We believe that Bitcoin’s long-term outlook is positive, despite the uncertainty around Bitcoin’s price movements. As more institutions and investors begin to recognize the importance of this revolutionary technology, we expect Bitcoin to continue to rise in value in the years ahead.
