Bitcoin Price Analysis
By acting as money and a settlement layer, Bitcoin is a topic of discussion amongst politicians. All the same, considering the receptiveness of governments toward blockchain, the underpinning technology of Bitcoin, fund managers are noticeably bullish.

“Graph the price of Bitcoin logarithmically […] its trend is going to grow at 235% compound annual growth rate and […] that put Bitcoin at $42,000 at the end of 2019. And I know this sounds crazy, but we’re essentially halfway back there. […] I think it’s a good shot that by the end of the year we hit that. And if you just extrapolate that line out for another year, it’s $122,000 per Bitcoin and then one more year, $356,000.”

In such an eventuality, the first bull target will be $15,000, and later $18,000. Conversely, steep losses below $9,500 would trigger a collapse to $7,500.
