Making Bitcoin price predictions is an arduous task given how unpredicted this fledgling market is. However, according to charismatic Binance boss Changpeng Zhao, it's "easy" to foresee the coin's price.
Lol, price predictions are easy. It's just hard to be right about the timing. We will see $16k soon-ish. 1.4 billion people working on it as we speak. https://t.co/mf9hKpP6Js— CZ Binance (@cz_binance) November 1, 2019
In the tweet, which addresses the dead Asuka prophecy, CZ claims that investors might see the $16,000 mark sooner than they think.
$16,000 is still on the table
As reported by U.Today, Bitcoin's price moves in 2019 were correctly predicted by an anonymous 4chan user on a 4chan imageboard. The prediction turned out to be so spot-on that it was even acknowledged by US whistleblower Edward Snowden.
However, whoever made this prescient post failed miserably with the $16,000 target in October given that Bitcoin recorded a monthly close below the $10,000 level.
That being said, there is still a chance that the prediction will hold but with different slightly different timing, which is what CZ believes.
In the second part of his tweet, CZ refers to China embracing crypto. As reported by U.Today, Bitcoin's recent price recovery was accompanied by President Xi Jinping's pro-Blockchain comments.
The Binance exchange, which is currently based in Malta, is expected to open a new office in Beijing, which comes right after the Blockchain push.
However, there are some critics of the so-called 'China narrative.' China fretting over cryptocurrency speculations is a surefire sign that is unlike to fall back in love with Bitcoin. The top cryptocurrency got banned in the communist state right on the verge of the historic bull run at the end of 2017.
