As institutional investors proliferate into the crypto industry, Bitcoin price prediction from different corners continues to fuel the ongoing bull rally. According to Glassnode CTO and co-founder Rafael Schultze-Kraft, Bitcoin could see a further surge of approximately 135% from the current levels of $48k to hit slightly above $100K.
Notably, Rafael used on-chain data to come up with his Bitcoin price prediction. Besides, he compared the current price levels with the 2017/2018 bull rally to further tuneup the prediction.
According to his analysis, the ratio between Bitcoin market capitalization and thermocap suggests the asset could surge another 135% in the near future. “Last bull market, $BTC was at ~$8,500 when Marketcap to Thermocap was at the current levels – and surged another 135% to the top in just a month. Things can go fast. Yea this time’s different, but just in case: 135% from here is ~$110k.#Bitcoin,” Rafael noted.
