I am interested in everyone's opinions on when/if the price of Bitcoin will exceed $31.90 (the June 2011 high).

it was about to until mtgox screwed up.. gdi

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

October seems about right: after the bitcoin conference in London and with the mining reward reduction immanent.

I originally made this thread when we were in more of a full-fledged breakout mode, but now momentum has slowed, and we seem to be consolidating in the $7-10 range.  I also think some people's opinions have likely changed for various reasons.  I will probably repost this poll at a later time due to changes in market sentiment.  Of course, please feel free to add your opinion and vote if you haven't already though Smiley

We could see this in August, then massive profit taking triggering a 3-5 low before settling into a new base price of 7.5 in September.

If you factor in a modest gain each month of $1.00, it would take ~23 months to get there which puts in firmly in the 2015 slot. Of course, if there are other upward moves that are sustained, it could shorten the process. Consider it a more conservative projection.

I don't think the gains will be $1 each month...  With bitcoin it has huge upswings and downswings...  We did see a slow and steady climb from $2 to $10, so it could very well go on that path... But with traders like pirate@40 and potential other larger players, there is really no telling what will happen.

I don't disagree, at all - just putting out a projection based on a rather modest increase. It could vary quite widely from that. That is what makes it interesting, to me anyway.

Pirate or not, big players or not, the market is still growing up and the minimum value of bitcoin is still growing up too.

just a hunch: If the price goes to 31 any time in the next two years, it will be thanks to those trying to get rich quick.

Or perhaps the rich just wanting to waste money by buying at high prices?

Naw the dollar will be propped up as the last fiat standing, BTC will surge from European HNWI running for cover this fall...

http://www.cnbc.com/id/48369714
The crisis in the euro zone has been thrown into higher gear by a surge in borrowing costs for Spain and by an acknowledgement by Brussels officials that Greece is too far off its targets to be saved by its second bailout package, agreed just five months ago.

Asise from all the hacks, we are quickly approaching the peak market capitalization of BitCoin. That's a pretty important metric as well.

+1

Considering continued inflation, the reward halving, growing awareness of Bitcoin, the public impact of the release of mining ASICs and other geopolitical/economic factors, I think we stand a good chance at seeing $32+ by this December, even if it's just a temporary spike (I don't anticipate a bubble though; I don't see it dropping much below $30 again even if it does break the previous high as a result of a spike.)

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use! Sign up in seconds to try it!)

Since the Bitcoin rally has accelerated faster and farther than many of us expected, I have reset the poll.  To everyone who has already shared their thoughts, I thank you.  Your comments & votes are much appreciated.
