Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency expected to conquer the market with exceptional heights in the coming year. Some analysts predict prices as high as $100K per Bitcoin.
2020: The Bullish Year for Bitcoin
The year started with the expectation of a major bull run for the digital asset. It rose from over $7223 in January 2020 to cross $10000 for the first time in 2020 on February 12, 2020, standing at $10305.
Bitcoin’s bull run saw the price of Bitcoin rise from $12,900 to over $19,000 between October and November.
The end of November 2020 surprises traders with Bitcoin steadily moving up to $19,000. In less than two months, Bitcoin has gained 90 percent of its value, climbing from $10,400 on October 1 to $18,900 on November 21, 2020. Recently, Bitcoin’s market capitalization reached a high of $337 billion, which exceeded its prior record of $328 billion from December 2017.
Bitcoin price hit a fresh record high above $23,000 on December 17th, extending a wild rally for the cryptocurrency that has seen it more than triple in value this year.
Bitcoin’s 2020 performance has reminded many market watchers of its frenzied rally to nearly $20,000 in 2017, which was followed by a sharp pullback the following year. However, crypto fans claim this year’s rally is unlike 2017 as it’s being driven by institutional buying rather than retail speculation.
The rest of 2020 is predicted to be a major bull run for the digital asset. Many investors and traders speculate the price could touch $30000 by the end of 2020 and also advise that holding bitcoin at present would be profitable.
