On June 1, the BTC price skyrocketed to $10,429 on the Bitstamp exchange before shedding some of its gains.
Galaxy Digital co-founder and CEO Mike Novogratz expects more upside
Mike Novogratz, the head of crypto bank Galaxy Digital, says that Bitcoiners should keep a close eye on the gold vs. BTC chart. Just before this explosive surge higher, he noted that Bitcoin was “coiling” and was poised to “take out $10,000 soon.”
Novogratz explained that with government balances skewing in favor of debt, there is a narrative rapidly forming that could boost Bitcoin. This echoes the lines of Tesla CEO Elon Musk and billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones, who said that the increase in government spending and debt make BTC look good.
Novogratz believes that prices will “move fast” now that $10,000 has been taken out, presumably referencing the importance of the $10,000 resistance.
