A while ago a nice graph was doing the rounds, indicating what the impact will be if a specific group of people adopted Bitcoin.

It was showing different investment sectors and what the impact would be on the Bitcoin price, if they invested in Bitcoin. Unfortunately I cannot find it now, but it motivated me a lot to think about the scope of adoption, when these investments could find their way to Bitcoin.

Just imagine what would happen if only 20% of the money invested in Gold, could find it's way into Bitcoin for instance. Gold is just one of the precious metals.

Just imagine what will happen if people stopped saving money in Banks at low interest rates and rather invested that into Bitcoin.  Roll Eyes

What shift in investment in your opinion, will have the biggest influence in the Bitcoin price? How will that shift, influence the world economy?

yes you are absolutely sure if they understand the benefits of playing bitcoin it is certain investors will glance bitcoin for a better future and that I know bitcoin is created because bitcoin aims to make a digital currency that can not be controlled by anyone including banks which means money it becomes a digital currency and can we save ourselves without having to go to the bank or to precious metals, just imagine in bitcoin we save money not in pick up monthly administration fees we can actually benefit from up and down its bitcoin. bitcoin currency is very unusual and just imagine how people around the world are scrambling to have bitcoin, amazing. so I think it will trigger a rise in bitcoin and bitcoin prices will be increasingly difficult to obtain.

Yes, the bitcoin value is influenced by many factors like supply and demand, trade bans from nations, whales, and so on.
Easily recognized. That is the supply. Imagine, if bitcoin supplies from mining are ineffective, demand from investors is rising, bitcoin prices will rise and vice versa.

The biggest influence would be the mass adoption, legalization of Bitcoins in every country and offcourse a Bitcoin friendly government.
If everything goes smoothly then the influence of big businessmen and other dominant personalities on the economy sector will decrease .. people well be a to handle their money without anyone's intervention.. the dominance of influential people on the economy sector will die down for good.

When bitcoin will be recognized worldwide and everyone the people and the government help to make it better. As for now, Russia is one country that has great plans for cryptocurrencies which not might be the biggest impact on bitcoin but it surely will have a great impact on bitcoin.
And when everyone will have access to bitcoin maybe that will be the time when there will be no poverty. Everyone will have enough to feed themselves and their families. And not sure if everyone will be equal but the condition of everyone might be better from the present.

Well it would be nice if people nearing retirement age could be encouraged to invest. They are really the ones who would benefit the most. If they are only to rely on their pensions, it really wouldn't be enough for them considering the combined effect of both inflation and the increasing life span. In my developing country most people can only afford to get government insurance and many times the pension is not even enough for medications, and you'd surely get more sickly as you grow old.

The developed world (America, Europe, Japan) have a graying population. Imagine if we can get them to start investing in bitcoin even just 5 years before retirement. Then they can live off their pension and still have a back up that increases in value.

I believe the value of bitcoin is heavily influenced by the large investors in the cryptocurrency market. These investors are called whales of the market, they have enough potential to dominate the value of bitcoins at their disposal. The news that is believed to affect the value of bitcoin is actually due to the whale itself launching to devalue and buy bitcoin at the lowest price.

I think the biggest impact would be regulations/legalization. IMO, most people aren't investing into Bitcoin because without regulations or a clearer stand by a government creates an uncertain environment, makes Bitcoin more risky, where a government can decide to ban exchanges and negatively impact the price, for example what happened with China, Korea, or India FUD. Regulations would not only give more legitimacy, but might also bring more stability and encourage risk-averse individuals to be a part of Bitcoin ecosystem.

Yeah, gold market share, even if Bitcoin captures 5% of gold’s $8.9 trillion global market cap, we are looking at a price of around $26,439.35 per BTC.

And of course, another major factor is technological developments/upgrades, lightening network could be Bitcoin's way to getting a good share of global payment processing market.

As an investment, gold/precious metals/stock market, currency/lightening network/e-commerce/remittances, regulations/legalization. No just as an investment, but the overall usefulness of Bitcoin that would be deciding its long-term value.

I think you captured the essence of this thread right there. I doubt that most people get that even a small percentage of ONE other commodity, will make a huge impact on the Bitcoin price. It takes only a single event for people to shift their investment from one commodity to another.

In the case of Gold for instance, you might get a situation where a massive Gold deposit is discovered and that would drive down the price. Those investors will look for another Store of Value and they might invest that money into Bitcoin.

The news that is believed to affect the value of bitcoin is actually due to the whale itself launching to devalue and buy bitcoin at the lowest price.

besides the whale, I think people is contribute to the price because when the price is up or down, some of them get amazed and the other is just panic and make a fast sell or buy. but there are the people that are not get influenced with this because they know that what is happen in the market, in the end, will give good things for them so they only waiting and make some buy and sell to make a profit. I agree that the news gives a big portion for the price and then this will impact with the people to take the action in the market.

It looks like futuristic but I think if all of the countries use Bitcoin as their reserve just like gold reserve maybe the price now of BTC would go quadruple. Since BTC coins are very limited the scarcity will make it very valuable. But in reality this scenario will never happen because US will never allow other currency to rule the financial market.

The existing whales now are influencing the price of Bitcoin greatly.  Now a shift of inflow of  cash from a different sector will definitely make Bitcoin price increase more and also it will make Bitcoin more volatile as a lot of people will noe be playing their money inside cryptocurrency which I think is only good for people lookong to take profit on Bitcoin. Making Bitcoin as a currency will be a lot harder.

It really gives big significance when it comes to bitcoin price because the price of bitcoin actually reflects on your own income because for example you are hilding some tokens especially bitcoin. If the price of that particular token dump or falls down, its a big loss for you to sell it that time. So you should wait for that price to come back again to its high value so that your money have progress.

Biggest impact, I think would be the rate of adoption. Currently, bitcoin is somehow exclusive to traders and investors; brick and mortar shops, together with online shops/services are still hesitant to accept bitcoin as a form of payment due to the risk it possess because of price volatility. They rather accept fiat since it's universally accepted compared to crypto which only a few recognizes as a legitimate payment. When global adoption rise, see the price also surge since there'd be a huge demand and not only selling pressure coming in. The bitcoin economy would be fully stimulated thus the price isn't just all about the push and pull action between the bulls and the bears.

It surely would be nice to find that graph. Ans surely I'd say that the biggest POSITIVE impact on Bitcoin's price would happen if pension funds would invest in Bitcoins. However, we could think also at Black Swans even - like for instance Satoshi Nakamoto suddenly putting on sale his 1 Million Bitcoins. This also would have one of the biggest impact on Bitcoin's price...

the current big whale is only a bitcoin price pump team .. if this investment flows happens it will grow bitcoin prices very quickly and multiply .. and of course this will be one way for bitcoin prices not to fall easily and will continue increase in every time ..

The biggest impact on Bitcoin price will not happen when people save less or no amount in the bank and save huge amount in bitcoin. If this ever happen, the government will go very mad on bitcoin and see to it total down fall in countries because indirectly government are gaining from citizens savings in banks. For there to be huge impact on the bitcoin price; governments should openly accept bitcoin and there should be an equilibrium in the bank savings and bitcoin savings. In as much as we not like it, its just the painful reality.
