Bitcoin could surge to $500k
The optimistic predictions about the price of Bitcoin continue to pop up. Check out the latest one that Mike Novogratz released.
According to the latest reports, in discussion with Michael Saylor on the WORLD.NOW event hosted by MicroStrategy, Novogratz proposed that Bitcoin will continue to perform well, more so as a store-of-value asset rather than as a currency.
“I think we’ve hit a tipping point in this network effect I talked about, and my base case is: if I look at Bitcoin as a percentage of gold, I think Bitcoin is going to be digital gold. I know a lot of people disagree with me. They’ll think, ‘No, it going to be money. It’s going to be the blockchains of all blockchains,’ I just don’t think so. I think it’s got a beautiful lane as a store of value. It was perfectly designed as a store of value,” he said.
