Not the Only One That Thinks So
This market cycle forecast isn’t the only analysis showing that Bitcoin could hit $20,000 by the end of 2020. This strong sentiment has been echoed by a number of market participants.
Mike McGlone, the senior commodity analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, commented in a research report on crypto:
“Bitcoin is mirroring the 2016 return to its previous peak. That was the last time supply was halved, and the third year after a significant peak. Our graphic depicts Bitcoin marking time for a third year following the parabolic 2017 rally… Fast forward four years and the second year after the almost 75% decline in 2018, Bitcoin will approach the record high of about $20,000 this year if it follows 2016’s trend.”
Arthur Hayes, CEO of BitMEX, has also mentioned this price target.
In an April blog post, he said that the Federal Reserve money printer and other macro trends will push the asset to its all-time high this year: “As violent as the Q1 collapse in asset values was, we have almost 100 years of imbalances to unwind the ancien régime. My end of 2020 price target remains $20,000.”
He seemingly doubled down on this price target in a recent blog post.
“I, like many other pseudo intellectual keyboard warriors, have a massive upside price target for Bitcoin. I will get to that in the next digest. But Q4 is going to be a humdinger. The financial markets are going to whipsaw as politicians contort themselves to continue feeding at the trough. This unfortunately will have lasting effects on everyone’s lives across the globe. Out of the chaos, more people will mistrust centralised authority and look for ways to protect their physical persons and capital from the wanton destruction waged upon them by their rulers.”
Core to his sentiment is that the inflation of fiat monies will drive scarce assets higher.
