Title: Realistic Predictions for Bitcoin?
Post by: kingplaya4 on April 15, 2019, 05:12:58 PM
There seems to be a lot of insanity out there. I recently saw a youtube video claiming 98 million dollars a bitcoin as some poin in the not too distant future. That would mean btc's value would approach a quadrillion dollars! Maybe everyone is expecting the US to go Zimbabwe and your btc will be worth 98 million dollar with which you will be able to purchase a bottle of water.

First we need BTC to get to a trillion market cap, which I think is definitely doable IF it becomes more easy to buy. Less KYC, more ATMs, but with governments seeing btc as a challenge, that seems unlikely. A lot of media excitement at Bitcoin breaking a 200 billion, 500 billion etc market cap could get it to a trillion.

It will likely not become easier to buy, so we need another trigger. I think a repeat of the 2008 recession could do it. Probably btc woud initially fall, but then move up. The question is how high before investors want to cash their chips in? There's a ton of people sitting on a couple of btc. If each one becomes worth 50k and the dollar is worth just a fraction less than what it it is now, a lot are going to cash out and buy houses and cars. There will be greed, but there will also be fear and its not hard for a normal person too google bitcoin spiking to 20k and quickly crashing. Getting back to that 20k would be an initial target then 50k which is a nice round media friendly number and one that is high enough that it would tempt people to cash in.

I think bitcoin needs a few years to get up to that 20k and if it happens slowly but steadily, then we can hit 50k. If everything goes well and it starts getting easier to buy and easier to spend, I think 1/2 of gold's market cap is a reasonable goal. There are other crypto currencies out there and some people will still buy gold and it would take a long time for Central Banks to transition from gold to crypto. I don't think such a thing would ever happen in our lifetimes, but they might start adding crypto to their reserves rather than selling off gold. So 3.5 trillion I think is a good next goal which takes us to roughly 175,000 per btc.

This is assuming the government/media don't start supporting a new crypto that is backed by Gold or the full faith of the US government or god knows what people might believe in. But getting back the target of 175k, I say we need around 3 years to get it back to 20k, it will probably fall back again for some period, maybe 2 years, then mass adoption, recession etc could get it to 100k by 2030, and I'm not going to bother with an estimate for doubling that.

Could it go on a massive run and spike to 20k this year? Sure, who the heck knows. But to be sustainable it would have to be supported by something, maybe if a country or two adopted it as their national currency. Something radical and unforseen. I imagine some will naysay this, but an asset currently worth almost 100 billion increasing in value by 20 times in the next decade is actually insanely optimistic. Look at stocks that started off as penny stocks, they don't keep increasing in value exponentially year after year and although btc isn't a stock, there is a limit to how valuable it can be.

It is actually the first time I have read a prediction so detailed and realistic. I am done reading predictions bitcoin crashing or bitcoin mooning without even grounds to depend their statement.

This one will be one of the key factors for bitcoin to rise again. With ease on access to bitcoin, we can expect people to be able to buy it with ease and comfort, which will somehow increase demand. All things will follow, not to add further cryptocurrency development which helps the whole cryptomarket to gain even more market demand.

Thanks :) I agree people need to back up their predictions, otherwise they are just cheerleading, and they need to use a measuring stick, even if it is all the money in the world, at least I know where they are coming from. Ripple is the most hilarious, people are expecting it to be worth many times more than all gold, dollars, euros and even property that exist in the world!

It will have to get easier somehow, but this could be a point where my age makes me more pessimistic than I should be. Perhaps an ap will be released by a trusted company that easily converts your dollars/euros to btc for a tiny fee with no KYC required! Seems unlikely, but who knows, maybe not impossible.

It will not be steadily since fiat is the leading currency for most the upcoming time. we will get to those values if the majority dont sell to fiat but keep it to spend it again on products/services that will do the same. where more fiat is coming inn less is going out. its a mind set that needs to change.

Fiat is not hold at all instead of that people will goes to buy the gold or diamond or property as a asset for their hard earned money but bitcoin or Ethereum is not consider in that way. That is being considered as investment like gold.
Once in the forum also people compared bitcoin with gold.

To change such fiat usage even centralized medium introduced some stable coins in the market may be in future we can find the many countries own coins.

Yes, of course, people will need to start holding on increases, because they believe in it and because they prefer to transact in it. Personally when I give predictions it's just thinking in today's dollar value as the dollar is still the reserve currency. To get to McAffee's prediction, BTC would have to become the reserve currency.

Fiat money (and every other currency) is used as a medium of exchange and it would be used like that. Usually, people are not buying fiat money to get any profit and it is not considered as an investment. The same thing gonna happen when any country would issue its cryptocurrency. That would be a stablecoin that would serve as a fiat currency but would be more suitable for some online transactions. People are not supposed to get profit from this coin.

I agree that we have to much predictions that are based on exaggerated wishes and have no ground in reality at all.  These are actually no predictions but only pure mentioning of something that users would desire to happen but it's not going to happen in real world. Like Bitcoin to be worth 1 million dollars.
So we need more actual preductions that are based on analysis and taking into consideration all relevant circumstances, that are not based on social networks and blogs information, something that users could take seriously. But this is very rare.

I did not see any real predictions about the price of Bitcoin in the near or distant future. I personally believe that Bitcoin will never even reach the price of one hundred thousand dollars. It will fall whenever it becomes a significant increase in price. Bitcoin holders themselves will not give him the opportunity to grow in value for a long time. We must first take into account the psychology of people. Good well can only be on the graphs, but not in reality.

Agree, most of these price tag on Bitcoin are speculations and may or may not come to reality. Nobody should give advice base on speculations from these speculators because the end results will be negative, ensure you do your research before invest into cryptocurrency. The market will surge very sonn.

Honestly this is the first time that I will read this kind of prediction it is like that he is so sure on what he saying about what happened next here in bitcoin industry. Very positive insight but I hope it will happen. But I 20k is a huge increase coming from 5300 in our present price but I know that all of us will hoping in this kind of development.


Title: Re: Realistic Predictions for Bitcoin?
Post by: Crypto_kk on April 15, 2019, 09:11:12 PM
The difficult part when predicting the price of Bitcoin is that it doesn't have to be logical. There is nothing in the universe that says the price of Bitcoin must be represented by the value it provides.

It is worth what people are willing to pay for it.

The other interesting thing is that the price is not necessarily what it's worth. I know that sounds crazy, but let me explain. When someone calculates the market cap, all that they are doing is taking the most recent transaction (the most recent buy/sell) and multiplying that price by the total number of bitcoins in circulation. This is not the total amount that has been invested in BTC and is sitting in some vault somewhere.

Sure, the market cap might be $89 billion, but that doesn't mean it is worth $89 billion. Hypothetically if everyone in BTC got together and said, "you know what, we should all cash out, let's split the $89 proportionally based on our relative ownership" - they couldn't. The moment some of them started selling the price would begin to drop due to supply and demand. It would plummet and as the price of the most recent transaction went lower and lower, the total market cap would approach zero well before the people with coins could realize even a fraction of the $89 billion.

Similarly, if there is enough hype and people are looking to buy at the same time, there is no reason the price couldn't hit some of the outrageous numbers that people throw around. It is unlikely to sit at those numbers for sustained lengths of time, but not impossible to hit them. All it takes is one crazy person willing to pay $1 for 1 satoshi and BTC is worth $100k at a market cap of $1,764,737,500,000,000.

I had a similar discussion with my friend in early 2017. I predicted that XRP would do well because it had such a low price per coin. She's like no way, the circulating supply is so high and so the market cap is all that matters. Yet I kid you not, one of the things I kept hearing from people was how XRP was so "cheap" relative to BTC. "What if it goes to $20k like BTC?". People kind of suck sometimes!

Post by: pixie85 on April 15, 2019, 10:04:29 PM
20000 is nothing really if you think at it in global terms. Compare the current market cap of bitcoin with big companies like mcdonald's, apple, amazon. If one person like Jeff Bezos can have enough money to double the price of bitcoin the predictions of 100 thousand dollars per bitcoin aren't that far fetched.

The chances of one billionaire selling everything to buy bitcoin are very low but what if a number of them spent 10% of their wealth? We would be above 20 thousand tomorrow and we wouldn't need a countrywide adoption.

When you say prediction,you don't know if it will happen someday or not. It is just something you want to happen through your own thinking base on your research or base on what's happening inside crypto market but it reality prediction is just prediction.

Post by: tomahawk9 on April 15, 2019, 10:24:09 PM
"Realistic prediction", most of the time the btc price predictions are based on assumptions, speculations, and knowledge about market movements, but 90% of the time (and I'm being nice here) those predictions end up being innacurate. Just look at Tom Lee, a btc permabull from wall street who always tries to predict the btc price and never gets it right...Or look at those who remained bearish and predicted sub 2k months ago...IMO there's no such thing as a realistic prediction in the crypto market.

But to be sustainable it would have to be supported by something, maybe if a country or two adopted it as their national currency.
Very, very unlikely.

We could see the bully run on the 20k as you mentioned if the government continues to put their hands into cryptocurrency markets.
You can already see an upwards price direction from the past days. We have already reached out above $5.200 2x now (one last week and another prior week before that).

Just by the fact we are seeing alot of embrassements from new investors as well as new companies reaching out for their payments update for having cryptos as one of their payments system it means price will go up sooner or later as more People will join the pumping (since they will be buying just for their payments).

I feel both Happy and Optimistic about the current developments on real life situations cryptocurrencies are being present at.

Though the price increase is relatively slow, at least we are moving in the positive direction. Not only the price, but the mass adoption is growing. Merchants and shops are starting to accept crypto even with the volatility risk, we can see that their number is growing. So I believe, this is doing great for the crypto community.

I estimate that bitcoin will continue to grow and develop. But the growth is still small. I see investors cannot forget the events in 2018. So they are still traumatized. Until the end of 2019 I estimate that bitcoin is not more than $ 9,000.

The only Realistic Predictions for Bitcoin is that you can sell your bitcoins for around $5.000 tomorrow on your local exchange. What the price will be at the Consensus in May or in 2020 around the halving or in 2023, when the next bull cycle tops, that will just be guessing. No one knows. Will the price of bitcoins go to 100k one day, most likely! and we will probably continue to see new all-time highs the next many decards.

Starting of the second quarter of the year we've experienced a big growth in the market. Further the growth in price hasn't progressed forward, but there is continued market fluctuation. Upon the same I believe that the market will grow gradually and reach an confirmed $10k+ value by the end of the year.

Big points mate fiat is usage to buy investment yes example on that is gold, actually bitcoin ethusiasm are continue to buy and hold it because they know their future as investment more the price of the gold.

I began to think whether this year could reach $20k, while at present the price is only around $5k. Many predictions have been made since the beginning of 2018 about the price of BTC. However, most of these predictions failed to come true. as the pioneer of the first crypto currency, it became very famous after posting all-time highs of $ 20,000 at the end of 2017. After the bearishness that occurred throughout 2018, everyone expected BTC to recover. Unfortunately, Bitcoin doesn't recover and gets worse.

Those value of Bitcoin that the OP has said is not impossible because we don't need to pour trillions of dollars to make Bitcoin's price or value go higher and just like what you have said it is on the mindset and when most of the people have a mindset to hodl for longer period of time the possibilities of Bitcoin skyrocketing is high without any kind of manipulation.  :)

I have no doubt with its likelihood. Bitcoin will surely pump up even higher than the previous high.
So far bitcoin is moving uptrend and this is a good start to think more optimistic, $1,000 can easily be achieve in crypto and we know that the volume
has been increase so an increase more than that can happy anytime.

Don't think much but just believe, bitcoin is always here and will stay here to get adoption and with good adoption, it will increase the price.

We can't know that for sure though. A realistic prediction isn't that realistic at all because any prediction in this marker has a fair chance of becoming true due to it's heavy volatility. We just choose to either be conservative about it or overly confident like john mcaffee lol.

Fiat is indeed the main currency, but the problem is not being in fiat bitcoin nor will it be valuable without fiat currency.
The problem is bitcoin halving, maybe this can be a profitable and detrimental one. I am sure that in the future bitcoin will be higher but there must be several factors that are obstacles, which are clearly not fiat

I wonder when that time will happen to reach $8k and $10k. But I don't want to see the price will go down less than $4900 because $4900 is a good number to start to increase back. Now, I see that the candle was beginning to raised and I hope that it will reach $5100 again and then go to a higher price. But still, we are in the moment that bitcoin go down and go up in any second and it makes us careful to buy or sell bitcoin because once we make a wrong buy or sell, we could get stuck in the high price. And right now, I enjoy seeing the chart moved from the lower price to the higher rate.

It's really tough to realistic predictions for Bitcoin. No one can know what happen in future but when is the question about bitcoin it's going little bit easy to predict. Bitcoin already survive 10 years and now it's the number one cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is the most influential crypto than others. My predictions is bitcoin become more & more popular in future and it's price also increasing day by day. And this crypto stay in number one position and influence others very much.

1. Less KYC? Not gonna happen. Not at all. Authorities tend to go to the totally opposite direction. We expect that opening a single wallet would require the same procedures as opening a bank account. Including signing the declaration that the coins/tokens belong to you and you only, the purpose of opening the wallet etc.

2. Something, like lifting almost global advertising ban by google, yahoo, facebook etc. would be enough. But in general, if we are speaking about the countries, we think Africa has such potential (starting with countries with the extremely high inflation rate, in some already USD and GBP are used literally as parallel currencies). They were the very first to adopt mobile payments, before more developed countries. They simply passed a few stages of infrastructure development (what was an incredible proof of showing human potential).

The next highest price for Bitcoin will be somewhere in 2023 - 2026, approximately 500 000 to 700 000 USD/1 bitcoin
Until then, the bitcoin price will remain at its value approximately 4000 to 5000 USD/1 bitcoin until the end of this year (2019). When the price of 1 bitcoin will be bigger than 6000 USD/1 bitcoin then you can be positive that the next increase in the bitcoin price has begun.

After this price of approximately 700 000 USD/1 bitcoin a new appreciation is possible to 10 000 000 USD/1 bitcoin (it will happen somewhere in 2030-2032).
 We do not know this, what we know is that in 2023 - 2026, 1 bitcoin will be priced at 500 000 USD.

Predictions not going to accurately moreover I'm try to predict about Bitcoin. My realistic predictions is bitcoin survive in future and stay in number one position as popular as now. Bitcoin is well designed cryptocurrency and it's technology Blockchain is the best supporting thing which helps bitcoin become more popular to users. I think in future bitcoin become more available in offline transaction and every country will accept bitcoin. Right now some countries are accepted Bitcoin as a offline transaction, in future it's available to everywhere.

I imagine some will naysay this, but an asset currently worth almost 100 billion increasing in value by 20 times in the next decade is actually insanely optimistic. Look at stocks that started off as penny stocks, they don't keep increasing in value exponentially year after year and although btc isn't a stock, there is a limit to how valuable it can be.

Considering the current trends in the Bitcoin trading market, I don't really think Bitcoin will be able to hit  $20k this year. But the crypto ecosystem is full of surprises, there are possibilities for the market value to hit $20k during the final part of this year. One question which always bug me is that, is bitcoin really worth to be valued at $20k??

Lots of negative news and hoaxes are happening, but look now that bitcoin still exists and has many users. I am optimistic that bitcoin will continue to grow and let us continue to increase the use of bitcoin transactions. that way we will get a much better future. the price of bitcoin is indeed unpredictable, but we can support efforts so that the price of bitcoin is on a positive track.

The feeling seems to be starting to turn positive again for the market (even media), but we still need several million injected to consolidate this trend. Otherwise, the hype will fade quickly. Forget an ATH in 2019 but 2020 too. I will be fine if Bitcoin stays around $5,500-$6,000 and more than happy if we see the $7,000 by the end of the year.

The global fiat debt bubble is approaching 250 trillion which is already a big problem for the central bankster cartels.
The confidence of this debt structure is already eroding.

As millennial's enter the economy this debt burden will prove unsustainable and the value of fiat will drop further.

Bitcoin is poised as a deflationary and immutable solution to the looming global financial crisis...

One million by the end of 2020 isn't unrealistic.

But no one saw the Trump phenomena coming and the current brief comeback of the USA economy.

We are seeing both China and Russia buying up gold to hedge the fall of fiat...

Gold is good but not as useful as Bitcoin for P2P and global commerce.

Given the evolution of hand-held devices and associated software the 100 million prediction in 10 years isn't too far fetched a prediction.

Ten years ago Bitcoin was barely a glimmer in the Satoshi eye.

Right now we are seeing the advent of gen 4 nuclear power...so it is a real possibility a financial instrument like Bitcoin could tie it all together and be the foundation for an emerging culture not dependent on government and their threats of nuclear war.

It will not be steadily since fiat is the leading currency for most the upcoming time. we will get to those values if the majority dont sell to fiat but keep it to spend it again on products/services that will do the same. where more fiat is coming inn less is going out. its a mind set that needs to change.
Bitcoin has not gotten to that level as not to convert to fiat to earn purchasing power. Don't get me wrong am also a believer of cryptocurrency and I think it's the future but for now there are few places where bitcoin can be generally acceptable

literally speaking , prediction are just predictions and its considered unrealistic .  however  , realistic predicition on the other hand means the prediction was closer to the number that has been predicted . for example i predicted the value of bitcoin will reach 7k usd at the end of this month . if you can see , my prediction are not exage because the numbers are low  .  this one is an example of realistic predictions  and this predictions do have a higher chance to occur  .

Its started from a single big candle and everyone becomes positive thinker again. Bitcoin should go beyond the $5500 so we can see a more pricey bitcoin. Let’s not aim for a new ATH, let’s go for a recovering the market trust from real investors and this slow moves can become big when the bull market begin.

Somewhere in the $100k to $1M range per BTC is the likely "highest ever" price. It can easily get to $2T in market cap but $10T+ will be challenging. It will be a roller coaster ride, and nearly everyone who is speculating in the coins today will have no staying power, and will get wiped out trying to trade the ups and downs. Only long term holders will reap the reward.

There seems to be a lot of insanity out there. I recently saw a youtube video claiming 98 million dollars a bitcoin as some poin in the not too distant future. That would mean btc's value would approach a quadrillion dollars! Maybe everyone is expecting the US to go Zimbabwe and your btc will be worth 98 million dollar with which you will be able to purchase a bottle of water.

This was a really good joke, I just laughed. But the situation in Zimbabwe is unfortunate and will not improve so soon. at least as long as the former president's party is in government

First we need BTC to get to a trillion market cap, which I think is definitely doable IF it becomes more easy to buy.

I agree, but about this:

Less KYC,

banks may have their clients make KYC for years and have always had many people using banks, because with cryptos it will be something different? we need people to do KYC, we need governments to regulate the cryptos, and we need governments to periodically inspect the exchanges to avoid cases of scam and money laundering. with this the banks will be able to allow the exchanges and the people to buy and use cryptos without problems

but with governments seeing btc as a challenge, that seems unlikely.

governments will accept bitcoin

a Bitcoin billionaire, Michael Novogratz, predicted that the price of Bitcoin will reach @ 10K.
Morehead said that today the BTC purchase signal is very strong. he also said that digital tokens will continue to grow and will be adopted more widely.
Ron Paul assumes that he supports Bitcoin and will become an alternative currency, so it will open up huge opportunities for investors and for the public to buy more BTC, in fact, BTC will experience an increase, even in slow movements.

Btc will most likely reach $35k this year. You said it should be backed by something. How about demand? The supply is very limited and the crypto space is still in early phase. There is a lot of potential and lot of market to target. This will increase of utility increases. That's happening. Many big companies are bringing crypto wallet now. Bitcoin is as common as visa/Mastercard in some of the Asian countries.

Many experts say bitcoin can increase more than $15k, and it's going to happen from this year, but there is no exact number price which we can know. That is why we need to have analyzed by ourselves and don't use other people prediction so if something wrong happens, and we don't have to blame them because we make a mistake in the analyze process.

The most realistic prediction for Bitcoin is that nobody knows how the price might fluctuate in the future due to crypto market's extreme volatility.

It can go to 50k $ as many "experts" predicted already or it can go to less than 1000$ , as well.

that's not what you call a prediction if someone wont make a statement or post on how he calculate the upcoming price of bitcoin  . prediction means when someone is claiming that the price will end up like this or like that   .

It can go to 50k $ as many "experts" predicted already or it can go to less than 1000$ , as well.

50k usd is not a usual price anymore imho . i dont think that its a realistic prediction  but for example if they will say that the price of bitcoin in the next 50 years and up will be 50k usd i think im going to believe them because that is more believable due to the growing adoption  . lesser price prediction are more realistic than a verry expensive price prediction  .

It is actually the first time I have read a prediction so detailed and realistic. I am done reading predictions bitcoin crashing or bitcoin mooning without even grounds to depend their statement.

This one will be one of the key factors for bitcoin to rise again. With ease on access to bitcoin, we can expect people to be able to buy it with ease and comfort, which will somehow increase demand. All things will follow, not to add further cryptocurrency development which helps the whole cryptomarket to gain even more market demand.
yeah the prediction that he said very reasonable and detail. I think the price of realistic bitcoin is now priced at around $ 5000, because I think a significant increase in bitcoin last year came because bitcoin is very popular (hype)

According to all cycles we passed, the math says Bitcoin will be around 150k at this bull and 1m at the next bull. So, we may see one BTC worth 1 m around 2025.

History shows us bullish predictions mostly win. Do not forget this; bitcoin is scarce and there is a reason for it.  ;)

The very correct opinion is that it is not easy and has often been expressed predictions about bitcoin, but always predictions change and bitcoin cannot be reached with predictions that have been made, whether it is with people who have experience though. actually the key to the bitcoin movement is from bitcoin holders and traders, they are the most decisive compared to news from social media. although the news also plays a role but may be smaller.

The thing about news and social media is that it influences in the holders and particularly in the traders.

Holders that are weak of heart will find themselves in trouble really quick if they are not patient or a really strong faith to back it up. It's not only about putting money in. Money without effective brains is a loose cannon.

It plays a role, i'm pretty sure it's a big one. With big news.

His prediction for June is $9300 and I am hoping the same. Let's see where it goes. If that happens, his year end prediction is $84000 for BTC.

but with governments seeing btc as a challenge, that seems unlikely.

governments will accept bitcoin
[/quote]

KYC in setting up a bank account is not as onerous, unless things have changed over the years. You show your driver's license, input your address, you decide on what type of account you'd like, you set up a pin number for your debit card and you are good to go. BTC KYC often involves checks of where funds came from (uhm I gambled and I won, and I bought some others from a BTC ATM with cash and I am paid in cash). Strange selphie requests. I've given more info to exchanges than banks have ever requested and I've still been turned down. If things remain this hard, than at best we have to wait for pretty much all the baby boomers to die off (some of Gen X will never accept it either) which will take at least 20 years.

Without major changes, BTC will not see higher than 100k, and even that is probably pie in the sky. Maybe having us put in our government's ID numbers along with a single ID photo would suffice. I have no problem inputting my SS number to a reputable exchange. 

In the end, having the government not involved is the appeal of the whole thing. But I am sure "terrorism" "human trafficking" "pornography" and other reasons/excuses will be used to highly regulate it. If I were in a think tank right now, trying to think of how the USD could be saved, I would think about regulating bitcoin into oblivion. Make any BTC transactions reason for an audit, require onerous fund origin requests of all exchanges, maybe require both a driver's license and passport, a combination many Americans don't have. Threaten Americans with jail and they will fall in line. Of course America isn't the world but the EU seems to fall in line with most of America's wishes, and Japan and South Korea are known US lackeys (sorry Japanese and Korean users, but it is true).

The beauty of BTC is it is decentralized and perhaps some of the money from all these centralized currencies will flow back to BTC, but the less government the better. If they want to help people, they can ban all these cloud mining in HYIP sites.

Post by: kingplaya4 on April 20, 2019, 07:35:24 PM
Just reading some other posts since I've been on here- by realistic I mean realistic potential. Obviously there is no guarantee BTC ever sees 100k, as I said the government could regulate it into oblivion or a new coin could slowly leach away at BTCs value (unlikely anytime soon but not impossible). Someone mentioned 1,000. I don't see that. Zero seems more likely if governments get in concert and crush it.

The case for BTC currently is digital gold. I don't think the US government cares for the real article, so maybe that is a possibility. Take gold's current market cap divide it by the number of outstanding btc and that is your top for bitcoin. You could argue the price of gold is suppressed and I would agree with that, but then you have to take into account the exist of ETH, BCASH, LTC and other Alts. Some of the money will flow there.

And how long do I think a high will take? As I said in another thread, probably about 10 years. Some boomer wealth will have transferred by then and if BTC hasn't stagnated or regressed by then it will be very hard to dismiss it as a Tulip Bulb bubble.

100K will not happen this year and very likely not next year either without some major news. Maybe ebay, amazon accepting it, along with at least one country switching their currency to btc. 20k will be very tough to reach this year, let alone break.

Are blockchain technologies capable of changing our world?  I think, yes, they can. I like that the unity that the blockchain technology offers significantly rebuilds its position in the market. For example, the taklimakan project. It creates an ecosystem where both crypto market professionals and beginners can coexist. Both parties interact on the principles of partnership and increase the benefits of their own, and the crypto community as a whole, because the more educated people in the system, the more blockchain technology is distributed into ordinary life and make it more comfortable

There seems to be a lot of insanity out there. I recently saw a youtube video claiming 98 million dollars a bitcoin as some poin in the not too distant future. That would mean btc's value would approach a quadrillion dollars! Maybe everyone is expecting the US to go Zimbabwe and your btc will be worth 98 million dollar with which you will be able to purchase a bottle of water.

First we need BTC to get to a trillion market cap, which I think is definitely doable IF it becomes more easy to buy. Less KYC, more ATMs, but with governments seeing btc as a challenge, that seems unlikely. A lot of media excitement at Bitcoin breaking a 200 billion, 500 billion etc market cap could get it to a trillion.

It will likely not become easier to buy, so we need another trigger. I think a repeat of the 2008 recession could do it. Probably btc woud initially fall, but then move up. The question is how high before investors want to cash their chips in? There's a ton of people sitting on a couple of btc. If each one becomes worth 50k and the dollar is worth just a fraction less than what it it is now, a lot are going to cash out and buy houses and cars. There will be greed, but there will also be fear and its not hard for a normal person too google bitcoin spiking to 20k and quickly crashing. Getting back to that 20k would be an initial target then 50k which is a nice round media friendly number and one that is high enough that it would tempt people to cash in.

I think bitcoin needs a few years to get up to that 20k and if it happens slowly but steadily, then we can hit 50k. If everything goes well and it starts getting easier to buy and easier to spend, I think 1/2 of gold's market cap is a reasonable goal. There are other crypto currencies out there and some people will still buy gold and it would take a long time for Central Banks to transition from gold to crypto. I don't think such a thing would ever happen in our lifetimes, but they might start adding crypto to their reserves rather than selling off gold. So 3.5 trillion I think is a good next goal which takes us to roughly 175,000 per btc.

This is assuming the government/media don't start supporting a new crypto that is backed by Gold or the full faith of the US government or god knows what people might believe in. But getting back the target of 175k, I say we need around 3 years to get it back to 20k, it will probably fall back again for some period, maybe 2 years, then mass adoption, recession etc could get it to 100k by 2030, and I'm not going to bother with an estimate for doubling that.

Could it go on a massive run and spike to 20k this year? Sure, who the heck knows. But to be sustainable it would have to be supported by something, maybe if a country or two adopted it as their national currency. Something radical and unforseen. I imagine some will naysay this, but an asset currently worth almost 100 billion increasing in value by 20 times in the next decade is actually insanely optimistic. Look at stocks that started off as penny stocks, they don't keep increasing in value exponentially year after year and although btc isn't a stock, there is a limit to how valuable it can be.

bitcoin is something that is very difficult to predict, not a few years, even the value and rate of bitcoin tomorrow who knows? but this prediction is really close to the predictions of bitcoin in the future with a very complete and almost right. the fact that in the past 5 years the bitcoin rate looks like a wave that has highs and lows that is hard to ascertain. Even John McAfee, the founder of the popular McAfee software and an ardent Bitcoin follower predicted that Bitcoin will hit $1 million by 2020 following last year’s prediction of $7000 which was well surpassed.

It is too early to tell whether Bitcoin's price would go back to $20,000 this year but for me I think $9,000-$10,000 is possible. Though both prices has possibilities but that will always depends on how much investors would pour into their bags. Some people say Bitcoin will skyrocket into like $20,000-$50,000 at the end of the year and it's too far from happening but who knows? Bitcoin's volatility is really hard to predict.

To achieve the price of $ 20k this year is very difficult with the current growth of Bitcoin.

Mcafee's prediction is a long-term prediction, and this may come out. Many investors have done the trend of speculative writing with Bitcoin, which increases the need to own Bitcoin and reduces the demand for selling.

I think the price of bitcoin to reach $52,000 within the next 2 years is not far fetched as that would male bitcoin enter 1 trillion $ market cap.

Lets all hope the mass adoption comes in faster.

well, in spite of this development, I think the natural thing for the increase in bitcoin now is $ 8000, and maybe the highest price is $ 10000. well, however the price of bitcoin will not be easy to rise if there is no trigger. even the stability is also quite difficult to maintain. so I feel the current price is $ 8000- $ 10000.

In this years of course $ 8000 - $ 10000 is very realistic price, IMO. But for next years, 2 or 3 years later I very sure the price of Bitcoin will be above $50000. Its because demand against Bitcoin will increase, many people will using Crypto/Bitcoin for transaction on Internet.

Realistic prediction can vary from one person to another, what for one person is realistic may not be for the other.
Anyways seeing the current trend of bitcoins i believe that bitcoin will rise to 10000 usd atleast by the end of this year.

Making any predictions in favor of Bitcoin is very difficult.  Because he is very unpredictable.  Bitcoin lives its own life.  But I am sure that he will succeed in the future.
Like other crypto Bitcoin is very hard to make predictions, all crypto could be easily manilupated from whales!

Of course, those, who own almost all Bitcoins, can manipulate the prices. However, it cannot last always, and BTC cannot be down most of the time. I guess BTC is supposed to grow

It will not be steadily since fiat is the leading currency for most the upcoming time. we will get to those values if the majority dont sell to fiat but keep it to spend it again on products/services that will do the same. where more fiat is coming inn less is going out. its a mind set that needs to change.
But the service and products that offers bitcoin is limited and not all country has,so i think we still have the problem in regards to this matter
Another thing is the only option most of the investors has is convert to fiat from bitcoin or convert bitcoin to altcoins either both will not help the market to grow right?

Not so long ago many people (including myself) thought that the Bitcoin's value could go down to ~$2,500-$2,000. Since the beginning of the month (when the upward trend started) the tendency is to think that we finally had the bottom of that period.

If we encounter the same scenario as a few years ago, yes, the bottom is out. Up to say we will soon see an ATH, certainly not. Are we safe from another correction? Certainly not. Once we cross the $5,500 I hope it will trigger investor's alarm to come again in the market. But I have the impression that this threshold will be hard to reach.

Again, I think many have misunderstood me, my price target of 100k (maybe 200k) I would project to be reached in 10 years time, although 4 to 5 years would be my hopeful timetable. TA will have little to do with it, it will be mostly news driven. Are regulations reducing transactions, are BTC Atms being installed in more and more locations, are large merchants starting to accept BTC, are large investors taking a position in BTC etc etc.

I don't think we can get much past 20k in the next few years without some significant good news. McAfee will have to give up his strippers and porn stars that's for sure. If we ever see a million dollar btc, it won't be a million dollars anymore, inflation adjusted 500k in a dream scenario. I don't see a likely scenario where anyone who has 50 btc or more can't retire to a life of luxury within the next ten years, but anything can happen. For those of us who have ten or less, I would not expect riches, but we should do well.

Now bitcoin looks more or less stable. And in this case, you can expect anything from him. Perhaps he will go to 6000 dollars, and perhaps again cross the mark below 5000.

I think bitcoin needs a few years to get up to that 20k and if it happens slowly but steadily, then we can hit 50k.

To be honest, that is the reality which I was thinking about, too. The recent price of btc is $5,500 and it will take many months and even years to achieve $20,000. But that $50,000? I do not think it will hit that really high but who am I to contradict such cryptocurrency's volatility attitude? Id id is possible to step up to $20k then it may step up higher than that price.

But this is only a pure  speculations. We intend to speculate prices but we'll never really know how the market will react and behave.

Its hard to really predict the price of bitcoin. All of our predictions are just wild guesses with no really hard evidence to backed it up.

But let us make a prediction anyway. For me the highest peak that bitcoin will reach this year will be 10k$ it will not be able to go up as far as 15K$. There are no more bubbles anymore and there are no longer big hypes going around. What moves bitcoin today are the entry of more people especially merchants and financial institutions. This kind of movement in value is safe and more stable compared to the super bull run last 2017.

some predictions say that bitcoin will fall in the next few weeks and after that bitcoin will again increase very quickly.

Bitcoin is probably going to reach 12.000$ before the end of 2019 and I personally don't think it will take until May 2020 for that to happen. Bitcoin is already up about 2000$ in the last 2 months and if it continue to do the same it should reach 10k soon and then go for its ATH.

Unfortunately, and this is party my fault, this thread became about short term predictions, which in reality no one knows. Did anyone call btc nearly doubling in the first few weeks of April? What I was trying to get at is what is the maximum bitcoin could reach possibly/realistically? Some projections have it exceeeding the total world's money supply by several factors, so those can be ruled out. Personally I think if you include all the altcoins (a few of the good ones should survive and thrive) we could be looking at gold's current market cap.

Be careful with some analysis as this is the time where the bullish and the expert will be out again.
Although there was a good increase this year so far, but we have to remain realistic, we should not erase the possibility that bitcoin will dump as it could happen, with that in our mentality, we can avoid the hype as any time there could be one or two and it would bring a FOMO again.

In my opinion, bitcoin will reach about lowest of $15,000 by the end of the year and maybe $25,000 if we’re going to continue in this pace. Some people including John McAfee predict that bitcoin will reach about $500k by the end of 2020 and about $250k by the end of the year but I think that’s a little bit exaggerated considering how unstable the coin is right now. But I wish they’re right about their predictions so I can play more video slots at this game (https://vegascasino.io/casino/video-slots/peter%27s-universe?utm_source=ccpu)


Title: Re: Realistic Predictions for Bitcoin?
Post by: MFahad on April 25, 2019, 04:13:22 AM
There seems to be a lot of insanity out there. I recently saw a youtube video claiming 98 million dollars a bitcoin as some poin in the not too distant future. That would mean btc's value would approach a quadrillion dollars! Maybe everyone is expecting the US to go Zimbabwe and your btc will be worth 98 million dollar with which you will be able to purchase a bottle of water.

First we need BTC to get to a trillion market cap, which I think is definitely doable IF it becomes more easy to buy. Less KYC, more ATMs, but with governments seeing btc as a challenge, that seems unlikely. A lot of media excitement at Bitcoin breaking a 200 billion, 500 billion etc market cap could get it to a trillion.

It will likely not become easier to buy, so we need another trigger. I think a repeat of the 2008 recession could do it. Probably btc woud initially fall, but then move up. The question is how high before investors want to cash their chips in? There's a ton of people sitting on a couple of btc. If each one becomes worth 50k and the dollar is worth just a fraction less than what it it is now, a lot are going to cash out and buy houses and cars. There will be greed, but there will also be fear and its not hard for a normal person too google bitcoin spiking to 20k and quickly crashing. Getting back to that 20k would be an initial target then 50k which is a nice round media friendly number and one that is high enough that it would tempt people to cash in.

I think bitcoin needs a few years to get up to that 20k and if it happens slowly but steadily, then we can hit 50k. If everything goes well and it starts getting easier to buy and easier to spend, I think 1/2 of gold's market cap is a reasonable goal. There are other crypto currencies out there and some people will still buy gold and it would take a long time for Central Banks to transition from gold to crypto. I don't think such a thing would ever happen in our lifetimes, but they might start adding crypto to their reserves rather than selling off gold. So 3.5 trillion I think is a good next goal which takes us to roughly 175,000 per btc.

This is assuming the government/media don't start supporting a new crypto that is backed by Gold or the full faith of the US government or god knows what people might believe in. But getting back the target of 175k, I say we need around 3 years to get it back to 20k, it will probably fall back again for some period, maybe 2 years, then mass adoption, recession etc could get it to 100k by 2030, and I'm not going to bother with an estimate for doubling that.

Could it go on a massive run and spike to 20k this year? Sure, who the heck knows. But to be sustainable it would have to be supported by something, maybe if a country or two adopted it as their national currency. Something radical and unforseen. I imagine some will naysay this, but an asset currently worth almost 100 billion increasing in value by 20 times in the next decade is actually insanely optimistic. Look at stocks that started off as penny stocks, they don't keep increasing in value exponentially year after year and although btc isn't a stock, there is a limit to how valuable it can be.

You want to say that who is holding the bitcoin they will be richest in future because in future bitcoin will be 8 million dollar. Actually it is too much number, but i have hope in future bitcoin will be high but not just like it. So let see because we will get our answer in future.

in realistic terms. the price closest to the price of bitcoin at the moment is $ 6000. if you think about it, I think the price of bitcoin might reach $ 8500 this year. depending on the conditions, but I feel that it is the closest price to be reached.

Barely from few months now Bitcoin has achieved some good price rise and i'm sure that with the year good movement in Bitcoin price, we may see a drastic move from $6,000 to 10,000$ before the end of this year. There positive news and these news will boost the price up.

This is a common scenario that I have seen. People get caught up with there schemes and they ended up happy in the end while others are crying. I hope this should end because it is not doing good to bitcoin. They should br promoting bitcoin through using it as a currency to buy products to make the market alive instead of false hopes.

Everyone who gives their guess about the price of bitcoin is a speculation and if someone takes it as a financial advice, he should understand that any risk taken was due to his decision.

There's already an increase to the demand and adoption is taking place. If you can't appreciate the $2k+ gain from $3,200 to $5,400 then you aren't looking at the demand and adoption or you just can't realize on how the market is moving positively.

Predictions will appear when receiving information or good news about bitcoin going forward and assessing the results of movements in the situation on the market, and the predictions of belun certainly prove correct and according to what is expected.
and bitcoin is very volatile and prices can change significantly over time and are uncertain, so the important thing is you buy it when the bitcoin price is low and resell it when prices rise and other options invest in the short term to make small profits, and invest in the term long to get big profits and all that is done when the price rises from the price before you buy.

When a currency is very volatile and there are numerous players in the field, it is really difficult to predict it. The whales have their own unpredictable ways and it hard to predict what will be their next moves. The market is also full of different speculations and this is also contributes to the bitcoin unpredictability.

That's not impossible mate where just in the last quarter of April but we are already heading to $6k. There are still plenty of months to deal with so I think it's still even achievable to reach $10k+ only if the good trend continues.

Of course, bitcoin predictions can miss, considering the rapid price movements, in just minutes the price can change. Therefore predicting for the short term is still reasonable, but for the long term it is very difficult.
Today the price of bitcoin moves in the range of USD 5815 and continues to move up or down, making traders who want to execute must be vigilant and see trends up or down in the next few hours. To find a safe point must make a prediction that is not too far from the current price, so that it can be immediately executed and get a profit.

It's really hard to give predictions on bitcoin. Predictions made by experts are merely speculations, and more often than not, are quite unrealistic, should I say overly positive. They would come up with charts and thorough analysis to support their claims. But, how many of them actually get it right? It's just a simple way of creating publicity and ultimately attracting more investors to pump up the value.

Predictions would be true but to achieve the price it will take long. Many predictions on the bitcoin price so for it to happen their is more adoption occur in crypto. The realistic predictions once bitcoin price expectation achieve so exactly it will keeps competing on the dollars in the exchange.

Right.These predictions made by experts usually comes out once they see there is a positive market condition like what is happening at the present.But even with those positive predictions we have,we still have to do our part by keep on promoting bitcoin not just offline but even in the real world.Once massive adoption for bitcoin will happen,i'm sure all good things for bitcoin will follow.

But getting back the target of 175k, I say we need around 3 years to get it back to 20k, it will probably fall back again for some period, maybe 2 years, then mass adoption, recession etc could get it to 100k by 2030, and I'm not going to bother with an estimate for doubling that.

Could it go on a massive run and spike to 20k this year? Sure, who the heck knows. But to be sustainable it would have to be supported by something, maybe if a country or two adopted it as their national currency. Something radical and unforseen. I imagine some will naysay this, but an asset currently worth almost 100 billion increasing in value by 20 times in the next decade is actually insanely optimistic. Look at stocks that started off as penny stocks, they don't keep increasing in value exponentially year after year and although btc isn't a stock, there is a limit to how valuable it can be.
2019 has not started with a not-so-bad note but as of today, Bitcoin price soared to a 4-month high above 4900 USD and its time for the cryptizens to celebrate. Wences Casares, the CEO of Xapo and a board member of Payal has been an ardent supporter of Bitcoin and has recently said that Bitcoin value might surge by atleast 250X in the near future. It looks like the bull run has already started and this time it's not going to stop

The prediction may be possible but it will take time before that will be achieved because the US dollars will try as possible to retain it value against bitcoin but in the long run bitcoin will keep beating the dollars on the exchange. The 98million dollars bitcoin price will one day come to pass.
Predictions would be true but to achieve the price it will take long. Many predictions on the bitcoin price so for it to happen their is more adoption occur in crypto. The realistic predictions once bitcoin price expectation achieve so exactly it will keeps competing on the dollars in the exchange.

What's realistic, really? I don't think anyone would have said $1k was realistic all those years ago when it made $1k for the first time. I bet you noone thought $10k was realistic either when we reached this price not too long ago. How about $20k right? And then with all these predictions of 100k and 1 million floating about? My brains tell me these are all fantasies but who knows? We've been surprised over and over again.

The bitcoin and crypto market in general is so volatile that it's hard to predict the price.

Personally, until bitcoin get implemented to a stage where you can use it effectively in every day life, I do not think it will grow any further. The dream is dead.
Wait what? Bitcoin is not used for daily life when it grows up to 1000% right? What are you saying now? We cannot just say what will happen in the future unless it has happened. All we can do is to predict what can happen. Massive adoption can be the main source of bull run but there are some other ways too.

Yep, that is the only way. First is we need to know what country and how many of them are going to have a demand on bitcoin. If majority og 1st world countries are going to adopt it for everyday use then $100k is just around the corner once that it is confirmed. But that dream is still blurred because of the same FUD and persistent bankers that saying btc is a fraud.

There seems to be a lot of insanity out there. I recently saw a youtube video claiming 98 million dollars a bitcoin as some poin in the not too distant future. That would mean btc's value would approach a quadrillion dollars! Maybe everyone is expecting the US to go Zimbabwe and your btc will be worth 98 million dollar with which you will be able to purchase a bottle of water.

First we need BTC to get to a trillion market cap, which I think is definitely doable IF it becomes more easy to buy. Less KYC, more ATMs, but with governments seeing btc as a challenge, that seems unlikely. A lot of media excitement at Bitcoin breaking a 200 billion, 500 billion etc market cap could get it to a trillion.

It will likely not become easier to buy, so we need another trigger. I think a repeat of the 2008 recession could do it. Probably btc woud initially fall, but then move up. The question is how high before investors want to cash their chips in? There's a ton of people sitting on a couple of btc. If each one becomes worth 50k and the dollar is worth just a fraction less than what it it is now, a lot are going to cash out and buy houses and cars. There will be greed, but there will also be fear and its not hard for a normal person too google bitcoin spiking to 20k and quickly crashing. Getting back to that 20k would be an initial target then 50k which is a nice round media friendly number and one that is high enough that it would tempt people to cash in.

I think bitcoin needs a few years to get up to that 20k and if it happens slowly but steadily, then we can hit 50k. If everything goes well and it starts getting easier to buy and easier to spend, I think 1/2 of gold's market cap is a reasonable goal. There are other crypto currencies out there and some people will still buy gold and it would take a long time for Central Banks to transition from gold to crypto. I don't think such a thing would ever happen in our lifetimes, but they might start adding crypto to their reserves rather than selling off gold. So 3.5 trillion I think is a good next goal which takes us to roughly 175,000 per btc.

This is assuming the government/media don't start supporting a new crypto that is backed by Gold or the full faith of the US government or god knows what people might believe in.

Some predictions are not always true I still say that we can't predict the market. Even the pro's still get some predictions wrong. Now the market is looking Good again and there were some predictions that have already gone wrong.

A very long article along with it is a lot of evidence. All of us are also judging from the understanding of the crypto market situation. So the price I think at the end of 2019 might be $ 10,000. It is very difficult for Bitcoin to reach the price of $ 20,000 as many people perceive and you should be aware of this.

You have a very detailed summarization about the future of bitcoin, where it is headed, what is the exact market cap for the bitcoin to reach the certain price and giving thoughts about the governments challenge.

What I wonder is that, are you a trader or somewhat a professional who are good in digging some useful information's to make some profit?
As you have a good basis already on what you are going to do next. Giving good information without any experience is like spreading a fud in the web in which I really hate.

Yes $10k might have more chances to happen this year but more than that, i think that's quite impossible. But again no one can really make exact predictions here even the legends in this crypto market because all we have here are purely speculations and guesses.

10k impossible? Ate you sure? If we continue with the pace we're taking now, we may hit 10k by the third quarter of this year. Remember we started out just around the 3k area until march and then 2 months in, we're almost at twice the value of bitcoin. 2019 is proving to be a good year and though another all time high is unlikely, i'm confident that 10k is attainable this year.

You didn't quite get what he said. "He said $10K is attainable but more than that is more of an impossible" but at the current pace we're in, we will be very likely to reach a new ATH of $10K or more by third quarter or so.

Bitcoin is full of surprises, predictions can be right or wrong. I don't think there is always this so-called realistic prediction because market is very erratic. At some point predictions can somehow help us stay motivated and positive that market will be back on track at the course of time. Recovery may take some time but I'm hopeful that its price will continue to upsurge.

The price of Bitcoin cannot be predicted realistically because everything can happen so quickly. The price movement of Bitcoin is strongly influenced by demand factors so that everything that happens in the world of cryptocurrencies will greatly influence the change in Bitcoin prices as a whole. Bitcoin often makes unexpected changes and changes an impossible thing into reality and also changes things that have happened to not happen. That is the world of Bitcoin at the moment, we do not have the ability to be able to read and estimate prices.

This prediction is a common prediction when looking at current prices. the development of the price of bitcoin is really very surprising, so there is a lot of speculation that the bull market will occur this year. I myself also feel that a bull market will happen soon and the price may be above $ 9,000.

I wouldn't expect that bitcoin price is going to hit 7800 in the middle of May.
I thought that we are not going to reach so high levels till the end of the summer. Now it seems possible that till June we are able to hit 10.000. Are there any realistic predictions? Everything is possible in this market.

For sure we will hit $10000 by end of June of the current trend continues but there maybe a correction or stable phase needed now if we want more investors or we there may be panic sellers coming up.
