Billionaire Predicts Bitcoin (BTC) Future Price

Bitcoin

Marc Lasry, the billionaire investor, and a co-founder of Avenue Capital Group spoke recently about Bitcoin (BTC) price and has even given his own price predictions. Lasry believes that Bitcoin will reach $40,000 in the next few years, and regrets not buying it sooner.

Marc Lasry sees Bitcoin hitting $40,000 due to easy trading

In one of his recent interviews, a well-known Bitcoin (BTC) supporter and a billionaire, Marc Lasry, decided to even give his price predictions for the future of the coin. Despite the fact that predicting the prices of cryptos is almost impossible to do due to the market’s unstable nature, many people have found price predicting to be their new favorite activity.

As for Lasry, he believes that Bitcoin can only go bullish from here on and that its price is bound to hit $40,000 within a few years.

Lasry seems to be pretty confident with his prediction, and he stated that his debt management company, which has control of around $9.5 billion when it comes to assets, has seen a large spike up in crypto trading. According to him, Bitcoin’s price is directly connected to the increase in coin’s use, and the more it manages to tap into the mainstream, the more it will rise.

Bitcoin, as well as other cryptos, are slowly but surely advancing when it comes to their adoption in many countries around the world. Despite continuous efforts by some to undermine the rise of cryptos, it would seem that digital currencies are attracting more and more attention with each passing week. With that in mind, Lasry predicts that BTC investors can make 5 to 10 times bigger returns within the next 3 to 5 years.

He also mentioned recently that his only regret is not buying BTC sooner. Earlier this week, he converted a significant amount of his net worth to BTC tokens, which has proven to everyone that Lasry truly believes in BTC’s success. He also stated that he likes Bitcoin the most because it is the coin that everyone will eventually go to.

Other Bitcoin predictions are even more bullish

So far, Lasry’s predictions seem to be true, and Bitcoin has had a $1,000 rise, which has affected nearly the entire crypto market. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is priced at $7,442.62 as per CoinMarketCap.

A lot of institutional investors have taken an interest in talking about Bitcoin and its future recently. Whether optimistic or not, this proves that the interest in cryptos continues to grow and that Bitcoin and the majority of the altcoins are under a microscope at all times. In the end, more and more of these individuals, as well as various banks, companies, and alike, are slowly moving towards the crypto sphere, which can only mean good things for the coins.

However, a lot of people have also been trying to give price predictions, especially when it comes to cryptos. Despite the fact that Lasry’s $40,000-prediction seems impossible at first, we have seen Bitcoin reaching half of that, and that was over half a year ago. Who knows what Bitcoin might achieve in the next few years?

Well, some people, like Tim Draper, tried to provide an answer. According to Draper, Bitcoin can reach the price of a quarter of a million within the next four years. As shocking as this announcement was, it was still not even close to the predictions by John McAfee, who claims that Bitcoin can hit $1 million per coin by 2020.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

The Pros And Cons Of Cryptocurrency

cryptocurrency

Many facets of our lives are now digitized––money is no exception. 

Have you noticed that paper money is on its way to being obsolete because so many people receive direct deposit and love the simplicity of their debit card? 

Not to mention, cash carries germs, as we’ve heard lots about during the pandemic. Many businesses have turned to card only options in light of this. 

But what about cryptocurrency?

You probably heard everyone raving about it a few years ago, but the excitement’s calmed down quite a bit. That doesn’t mean that it’s not a viable option you should keep in mind. 

What’s Cryptocurrency? 

Let’s start with the basic definition of cryptocurrency so we’re all on the same page. Cryptocurrency utilizes cryptographic methods and complex coding systems to encrypt sensitive information during data transfers. This protects your funds and personal information on a whole different level. 

These transactions are virtually impenetrable due to the combination of mathematical and technological protocols created and put in place. This aspect of cryptocurrency is what makes it safer. Also, the details of transactions are kept private. No one can see who sent what, etc., because those rigorous mathematical and technological protocols protect it.

The Pros: 

Different From Traditional Banking Transactions

One thing people hate about traditional banks is the fact that they can…

As Global Tensions Grow, Bitcoin Price May Go Higher

BTC Surged Again as A Safe Haven Asset During Global Tensions

  • India – China Border Conflict

After weeks of squabbling and brawling along their long-disputed border, hundreds of Indian and Chinese soldiers engaged in a deadly clash Monday in a river valley that’s part of the region of Ladakh last week. Troops had massed on both sides of the border in recent months in the northern India region of Ladakh and the southwestern Chinese region of Aksai Chin, causing global concerns of a potential escalation between the two.

  • North and South Korea Clash

Last Tuesday, North Korea destroyed the liaison office it jointly operates with South Korea in the city of Kaesong, just north of the demilitarized zone that separates the two countries. 

North Korea also said it would send troops to now-shuttered joint cooperation sites on its territory, reinstall guard posts and resume military drills at front-line areas in a violation of separate 2018 deals with South Korea. Jeong said South Korea will take “immediate, swift and corresponding” steps to any North Korean provocation.

The tensions grown in Asia and the potential “second wave” of coronavirus in the United States may add more difficulties to the global economic recovery. Thus, Bitcoin, as a safe haven asset, attracts more investors to buy and hold.
