Bitcoin (BTC) has been on a roll this year, outperforming traditional risky assets and surging 80% since the start of 2019. This impressive rally has led to many investors and analysts wondering what the future holds for the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market value.
According to Vetle Lunde, a senior analyst at K33 Research, Bitcoin’s current surge is following a similar pattern to its 2018-2019 bear market recovery. Lunde notes that bottoms in both cycles lasted for approximately 370 days, and the peak-to-trough return after 510 days of both cycles reached 60%.
Based on this pattern, Lunde predicts that if the fractal were to continue, Bitcoin would peak around May 20th at $45,000. Of course, it’s important to note that history is far from likely to repeat in a similar fashion, and there are no guarantees when it comes to investing in cryptocurrency.
Despite the uncertainty, there are still many reasons to be optimistic about Bitcoin’s future. The rise of decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has created new use cases for cryptocurrency, and more institutional investors are starting to take notice.
Furthermore, Bitcoin’s finite supply of 21 million coins means that it will always have some level of scarcity, which could drive up demand and prices in the long run.
In conclusion, while there are no guarantees when it comes to investing in cryptocurrency, the future looks bright for Bitcoin. Whether or not it will reach $45,000 by May 20th remains to be seen, but the overall trend is certainly positive.
