Bitcoin Surpasses $8,500 – $10 Million Prediction Is Reportedly Viable


There have been all kinds of Bitcoin-related predictions these days, and despite the massive volatility of the crypto market, these seem to be getting more and more bullish.

The truth is that the crypto market looks excellent today, with the most important coin in the market managing to hit $8,500.

Bitcoin hitting $10 million is not too far-fetched to say

Now, it’s been reported that a co-founder of the blockchain technology startup Blockstream said that the notion that BTC could one day hit $10 million is not a crazy prediction at all.

Adam Back analyses an experiment from the early BTC developer Hal Finney. In 2009, in an email chain with Satoshi Nakamoto, Finney pondered how high Bitcoin price could go, as reported by the online publication the Daily Hodl.

“As an amusing thought experiment, imagine that Bitcoin is successful and becomes the dominant payment system in use throughout the world. Then the total value of the currency should be equal to the total value of all the wealth in the world,” he said.

He continued and said: “Current estimates of total worldwide household wealth that I have found range from $100 trillion to $300 trillion. With 20 million coins, that gives each coin a value of about $10 million.”

Huge prices could be achieved if BTC gains more adoption and is used as a currency

Such a huge number could be achieved in Back’s opinion only if BTC gains mass adoption, and it’s used as a currency and if the value to the dollar drops.

He continued and said: “And $100k Bitcoin doesn't seem so far given we already crossed $10k threshold a few times when few expected even $1k some years back and $10k seemed crazy.”

Plan B famous crypto analyst hopped in the comments and said: “Totally agree. Must admit that I probably would not have this level of confidence (and interest) in bitcoin, if I would not have had 20+ years experience investing $100B AUM and personally seeing the unintended consequences of quantitative easing (QE) and negative interest rates.”

At the moment of writing this article, BTC is trading in the green and the coin is priced at $8,520.91.
