Back on 17 March 2010, the now-defunct BitcoinMarket.com started operating as the first 比特币 exchange. Every BTC unit was traded with a price of 0.003 USD. Who-the-heck would know by then that geeky-coin would skyrocket to 20K and probably beyond? Of course, the people who acquired them in 2010 are now rich and we want to live the dream too.

Maybe it’s too late by now, but maybe it’s not. We all know Bitcoin prices tend to rise, sooner or later. To the moon! And that’s why everybody it’s so excited about checking on their personal crystal balls possible futures for Bitcoin and its price. Thereby, important crypto-companies and leaders have already tried to guess the next big Bitcoin record.

Let’s find out some of them for 2021 and beyond.

安东尼·庞普里亚诺+ 100K

He’s the co-founder and partner of the crypto-hedge fund Morgan Creek Digital for institutional investors. In the past, Pompliano has said 50% of his net worth is invested in Bitcoin, so, we could say he really believes in this. A funny thing about him? He thinks the declarations of Warren Buffet对Bitcoin 因害怕创新而诞生。   

按照他的说法, 到2021年12月底,BTC至少达到10万. “Fixed supply. Increasing demand. Time will tell”. For now, after the experience of a hopeful boost in the price, Bitcoin is selling at 11.500 USD. We’d need an increase of 770% in the next 16 months, and we’ve seen the weirdest things happening.

加密研究报告(CRR)+ 300K

This isn’t an individual, but a crypto-research company based on Liechtenstein. Their specialty is the professional financial analysis of the cryptocurrency market, and their comprehensive reports are now well-known: 10 editions with over 800.000 impressions in 187 countries. Not bad.

June’s edition, the last one, includes 61 pages of analysis about Bitcoin future’s price. In tiny font. So, as you may think, they take seriously the forecast. We kindly summed it up for you (you’re welcome): based on the total monetary supply and the velocity it’s being used in the wild, they calculate Bitcoin will be sold at 341K by 2025,甚至在2033年将达到39.5万。

Additionally, for the current year (2020), they think Bitcoin will still rise to 19.044 USD. And, according to the same research, 40+ million cryptocurrency-users exist around the world already. We hope you’re one of them, and if not, 等不及了!

杰里米·刘和彼得·史密斯+ 500K

Liew is the current Managing Director at Lightspeed Venture Partners, a venture capital firm that engages in consumer, enterprise, technology, and cleantech markets. He’s well-known to be the first venture capitalist who backed the successful Snapchat, and he’s in the 34th position of the 2020年顶级科技投资者 福布斯》顺便说一句,在他的其他版本中,还有流行的硬件加密钱包Ledger。

据这个家伙,他从字面上奉献了自己的时间和金钱来投资成功的项目, the price of Bitcoin could reach an amazing 500K by 2030。著名公司Blockchain(就像那个探险家和钱包一样)的首席执行官兼联合创始人Peter Smith完全同意这一点。

They considered six factors for their prediction: a 比特币 price of $1.000 in 2017, network users will grow by a factor of 61 from now until 2030, the average value of 比特币 held per user will hit $25.000, Bitcoin’s 2030 market cap is decided by the number of 比特币 holders multiplied by the average 比特币 value held, Bitcoin’s 2030 supply will be about 20 million and Bitcoin’s 2030 price and user count will total $500K and 400M, respectively.

瓦茨·卡萨雷斯+ 1M

He’s the co-founder and CEO of the crypto-company Xapo, and he also sits on the boards of PayPal, Libra, and Coin Center. In the past, Casares created as well a bunch of successful companies like Patagon, Wanako Games, and Lemon Wallet; all of them sold to big names: Santander Bank, Activision, and Banco do Brasil.

好吧,这是在纽约召开的2017年共识会议上, Casares said Bitcoin would hit not just the moon but the next galaxy, with 1M per unit before 2027. Although, before you run to buy like there’s no tomorrow, 他也这样说:

“The Internet doesn’t have a currency and it desperately needs one (…) The biggest mistake [would] be to buy more 比特币 than you can afford to lose. The big mistake is [also] not to own any 比特币. Put 1% of your net worth in 比特币 and forget about it for 10 years”.

It doesn’t sound like a bad plan if you’re asking us.

Prime XBT + 25K

Prime is the second (haha) and last company in our little list. And yeah, isn’t 250K but some humble 25K. Someone should be a bit conservative, after all. This professional trading firm was established in 2018 and now serves 150 countries.

根据他们 三月报告, they gathered “some of the best technical analysis from the industry’s best analysts” in order to peek into the Bitcoin’s future. Or at least try their best. 结果是到2021年的最低$5.000和最高的$25.000。他们的纪录是2025年,最高记录为$310.000。

Seen all these forecasts, we should remember the divination is a dangerous practice, even done with some math. The only sure thing we have is the certainty that there are infinite possibilities. In any case, Bitcoin has already proven its worth beyond the prices.
