FOX News has joined the mainstream networks bullish on Bitcoin, embracing claims it could reach up to $1 bln.

In a segment of Making Money June 30, anchor Charles Payne hosted a celebration of Bitcoin, the latest rally of which could see it reach $1 mln “within the next few years,” he agreed.

“For the most part we wrote it off as technology’s answer to Beanie Babies,” Payne began, “Well, it’s back, and this time this rally feels different.”



FOX joins networks such as CNBC in its newfound love of virtual currency, which until 2017 regularly received derogatory reviews from hosts and experts alike.

As Bitcoin circles $2,500 per coin, speculating over its price within five or ten years has become a new favorite sport of finance media looking to get investors excited.

“The reason Bitcoin is a financial revolution is because it’s decentralized,” Payne’s guest Naomi Brockwell, former policy director at the New York Bitcoin Center said.

    “The main people promoting this technology are those who understand that governments can be dangerous.”

Taking the current financial crisis in Venezuela, where Bitcoin is providing a genuine lifeline to those who would otherwise not be able to purchase essential goods, Brockwell added the future of the cryptocurrency could only be brighter.

“It’s going to the moon,” she concluded.

By the end of the segment, the $1 mln price forecast had meanwhile become $1 bln, albeit with no sources referenced.

Considering that the mainstream press had been looking at Bitcoin with distaste and disdain for the past many months, the recent developments of praises and appreciation for Bitcoin seem surreal. And though we should be elated and be excited with this news, I am wary that soon the love affair slowly erode and can be back to where it started.

Sometimes the mainstream media can have a love and hate tug of war with a certain thing or event that maybe beyond its full comprehension. We just hope that they are already seeing the light as far as cryptocurrency is concerned. Anyway, at this time when a dark cloud is hanging over Bitcoin for the coming August 1, a very optimistic view from the media can be what we are needing.
