Bitcoin hits $1,600 for the first time and one investor says it could rally to $4,000 in a few months

The bitcoin price. could rise to about $4,000 within 8 to 14 months, investors say.
The recent price rise has been driven by positive developments around the underlying technology with a rival cryptocurrency called litecoin.



Bitcoin is "fully valued" and could see a pullback in the short term after hitting $1,600 for the first time on Monday, according to one investor, but the price could go as high as $4,000 over the next 14 months.

The cryptocurrency has been on an upward move since April and was trading around $1,575.52 by early afternoon trading in London after hitting an all-time high $1,601.05 during morning trade, according to the Coindesk bitcoin price index.

In the last 30 days, bitcoin has risen over 33 percent.

It's easy to say something when the price goes up nicely. I am sure that if we were still hovering around the $1000 level, that these investors wouldn't make such a statement. That's why I don't add much value to these predictions. If you just look at the pace of current increase, then it could even reach $5000 within 12 months. But what's this prediction worth? Absolutely nothing -- things don't just go up in value, regardless of the demand and positive sentiment.
