Bloomberg intelligence analyst Mike McGlone has taken to Twitter to announce that Bitcoin is likely to beat gold in 2021, and its potential to reach the $50,000 level may increase greatly this year.
Bitcoin still on track to reach $50,000
Mike McGlone has tweeted that, in 2021, chances are high that the cryptocurrency market will grow so much that it may prevent Bitcoin from revisiting its 2017 all-time high of $20,000. He states that, even though this prospect remains, the chances of it are diminishing.
Also, the potential of the world's biggest crypto's reaching $50,000 and a market capitalization of a whopping $1 trillion is increasing.
As for January in particular, the expert wrote: Bitcoin may be better than gold.
In November of last year, McGlone already shared his expectation that 2021 will be a parabolic year for Bitcoin, as the same pattern that drove Bitcoin high in 2013 and 2017 may also play out in 2021.
