It’s no secret that bitcoin has experienced one of the worst moments in recent weeks and months. The losses suffered by the main cryptocurrency were very large, and the market as a whole was also hit hard. In this situation, the short-term outlook is not exactly promising, but few have focused on long-term approaches, and Mike Novogratz did.
According to Mike Novogratz, the likelihood of bitcoin hitting $500,000 in about five years is pretty high. This means that cryptocurrencies like bitcoin could become a store of value, as has been suggested many times, even though regulators have vehemently denied it.
And this comment is not isolated, it may be the result of a certain sense of positivity that has been awakened since bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have risen in recent weeks. At times like these, crypto enthusiasts and market analysts start to wonder if the crypto winter is showing some signs of the end of this price rally over the past few weeks.
Can bitcoin hit $500,000?
There is always a chance that a cryptocurrency like bitcoin can reach such a high level. In fact, before China banned Bitcoin last year and the cryptocurrency and the market plummeted, some analysts argued that Bitcoin could reach $100,000 and $150,000 by the end of 2021.
The above prediction clearly didn’t materialize, but bitcoin experienced a significant bounce at the end of the year, only China’s move came at a pivotal moment that stopped bitcoin’s accelerated rally that bitcoin was experiencing at the time. If that didn’t happen, bitcoin highs would probably easily top $100,000.
In addition, the market for cryptocurrencies and, in particular, bitcoins is expected to grow steadily. Day after day, cryptocurrencies are gaining attention and acceptance from investors around the world, and although they are not in the best shape right now, the chances of growth are still being considered.
And one of the staunchest proponents of this theory is Mike Novogratz, who is the CEO of Galaxy Digital and was an avid cryptocurrency enthusiast for a while. He was the one who said that bitcoin could reach $500,000 in about 5 years. He made the announcement at the Bloomberg Crypto Summit event.
There, he assured that the conditions for bitcoin growth are met, because if you take into account what a cryptocurrency like bitcoin can bring to the economy, it is indeed possible that its growth will be exponential over the next few years.
One of the points that he also touched on and that caused a lot of surprise among the participants is that it seems that the price of bitcoin is “reliable”, only the situations of the current context of the global economic system have also changed. affected cryptocurrencies. In short, bitcoin hitting $500,000 is a fact, you just have to wait a bit and be patient for it to happen.
Can bitcoin recover?
From this point of view, it is clear that the perspective given to us by Mike Novogratz is somewhat ambitious. But you also have to keep in mind that he is someone who knows what he is talking about. Also, if you told someone that bitcoin would rise from $8,000 to a high above $60,000, they would probably reply that it was impossible, and yet that is exactly what happened several times last year.
In fact, falling prices for cryptocurrencies happen more often than investors think. And if the cryptocurrency fell today, this does not mean that the fall will continue to zero, because after the fall, a rally is usually ahead. Another thing is how long it will take for the rally to occur and how it occurs.
But if we look at how bitcoin has performed in recent days, we see a slight increase. This gives investors hope that the winter may end sooner than expected.
It is expected that the global economic situation will soon improve, and with it, the conditions for cryptocurrencies will also improve. In addition, one can hope that the position of the regulators will not be too restrictive, as this may slow down the growth of bitcoin. But for now, there is some hope in the market, and this could turn out to be a boon.
