ETF Approval Likely, but…
Yusko acknowledged the growing excitement around the possibility of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval, with major players such as BlackRock, Fidelity, Wisdom Tree, and VanEck submitting filings for such ETFs. However, he pointed out that although there is an impending deadline of August 13th for the SEC to approve or reject an application from ARK Invest, the SEC has the option to extend the deadline until January 2024.
Bitcoin Headed for $100,000
In terms of price forecasts, Yusko relied on Metcalfe’s law, which suggests that Bitcoin’s value grows exponentially with the network’s size. According to him, the law puts Bitcoin’s fair value at $55,000. He further predicted that with each halving event, the total value of the network could increase tenfold. Therefore, he anticipates that the upcoming halving and a potential spot ETF approval could push Bitcoin’s price to between $100,000 and $150,000 by mid-2024.
Despite Bitcoin’s current struggle to break out of a consolidation phase and the resistance at $31,000, Yusko’s predictions are based on the anticipation of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval and the underlying solid network fundamentals. These factors suggest enduring interest in Bitcoin and could potentially drive higher prices. At the time of writing, BTC was trading at approximately $29,187, experiencing a slight drop of 0.1% over the past 24 hours.
