As the next Bitcoin halvening is to take place in a few months (May this year), more people are beginning to talk about it and its possible impact on the price of the flagship cryptocurrency.
‘Halving is priced in correctly, markets are efficient’
The analyst PlanB believes that the halving is priced in and uses a stock-to-flow model to predict the price. However, he reckons that only 10 percent of market participants can understand this model and maths behind it.
On the chart, PlanB has used a lower figure for predicting the BTC price surge after the halving - $50,000, instead of $100,000 which is used here by many. He used monthly BTC market data in the formula.
However, the expert points out that whether one chooses a conservative model ($50,000) or an aggressive one ($100,000) is a matter of taste.
Similarly to gold, Bitcoin shows a very high stock-to-flow ratio thanks to the low issuance compared to the currency circulating supply. As time passes, the stock-to-flow ratio of BTC is expected to exceed that of gold, since the block rewards are going to decrease with each halving that remains.
This decade will bring half of the world to Bitcoin: Willy Woo
The cryptocurrency analyst Willy Woo has summarized the previous decade, saying that one percent of the world started using or/and investing in Bitcoin. The coming decade, he hopes, will ‘convert’ half of the world into the ‘Bitcoin faith’.
‘Bitcoin and Ethereum are best investments’
The crypto trader ‘Bitcoin Macro’ reckons that Bitcoin and Ethereum are the best crypto assets one can invest in. He calls Bitcoin the mothership of crypto and compares Ethereum with an ‘index fund for altcoins’.
His portfolio, the expert says, usually totals Bitcoin/Ethereum on a 50/50 ratio.
