A financial analyst who sees positive income in both directions of the market (bulls & bears). Bitcoin is my crypto safe haven, free from government conspiracies. Mythology is my mystery! "You cannot enslave a mind that knows itself. That values itself. That understands itself."
Bloomberg expects BTC to jump over $15,000. The company based its reasonings on fundamentals like Bitcoin’s rising hash rate and also the 30-day average of active Bitcoin addresses.
As the Bitcoin market gets more sophisticated, its nature of prediction is becoming subtle due to increased fundamentals to consider. As of the time of writing, the asset was trading around $10,334.89, having dropped 5.7% in the past seven days, and down approximately 1% in the past 24 hours, according to metrics provided by CoinGecko.
After the 2020 Bitcoin halving, there were several model theories indicating the asset’s plausible future market price. Notably, almost all of them were using the past performance of the asset in relation to the past halving. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, more factors have been included, hence complicating the asset. Mostly, ‘crazy’ speculation has been the lead in Bitcoins prior rallies. Its price rose astronomically during its first decade, attracting huge attention both from retail traders and institutional investors. With institutional investors flocking into the Bitcoin market, it has resulted in a sharp uptick in its blockchain activity. Including its average daily trading volume, demand and also transaction fees.
Bloomberg Expects Bitcoin Trading Growth
According to data provided by Bitcoinblockhalf, the asset currently has an inflation of 1.79% per annum. Its hash rate stood at 148.92 Exahashes/s, while its difficulty stood at 19,314,656,404,097. With a market capitalization of $191,178,524,466, and a daily volume of approximately $20,254,376,529 according to CoinGecko , the asset seems well positioned to take off.
However, on the technical side of view, the asset is precariously hanging on a make or destroy level. It is at this point that the asset can breakout and reach to its new weekly highs and possibly surpass its all time high. In addition, it is at this level that it might continue with the current correction and trade $10k for another long term consolidation.
Bitcoin is likely to fall and find a temporary support level once it hits the weekly 200 moving average. On the shorter timeframes, the asset is currently experiencing strong sell pressure and likely to continue with the downtrend for a couple of weeks. However, according to views outlined by media outlet, Bloomberg, Bitcoin should be trading above $15,000. The company based its reasonings on fundamentals like Bitcoin’s rising hash rate and also the 30-day average of active Bitcoin addresses. They noted:
“The Bitcoin hash rate continues to increase and recently reached new highs. Also advancing are addresses used. A top metric for adoption, the 30-day average of Bitcoin addresses is equivalent to the price closer to $15,000 when measured on an autoscale basis since 2017”.
