Bitcoin (BTC) has been the hot topic of discussion for some of the top financial companies in the US. Big giants are already giving six-figure targets for BTC and expecting it to overtake gold in the long term.

Well, as Bitcoin continues to consolidate its position at this point, top US funds, including Ark Invest, are giving massive price targets for BTC in the long term.

Well, the Bitcoin billionaires Winklevoss twins had already predicted this scenario last year in August 2020. At that time, Bitcoin was trading around $10-$12K levels. In the article “The Case for $500K Bitcoin”, Tyler Winklevoss wrote:
“Today, the market capitalization of above-ground gold is conservatively $9 trillion. If we are right about using a gold framework to value bitcoin, and bitcoin continues on this path, then the bull case scenario for bitcoin is that it is undervalued by a multiple of 45. Said differently, the price of bitcoin could appreciate 45x from where it is today, which means we could see a price of $500,000 U.S. dollars per bitcoin.”
Bitcoin Fundamentals Continue to Improve
While Bitcoin (BTC) has been trading currently at $59K, its fundamentals have also continued to improve simultaneously. Firstly, the Bitcoin supply at exchanges has gone to a 19-month low with major institutional purchases moving to cold storage.
On the other hand, data from Glassnode shows that the net miner position has turned positive. It means that miners are no more selling their Bitcoins but rather continue to hold and accumulate.
