Replying to a comment from VanEck’s Gabor Gurbacs, who said that due to a bigger number of BTC holders any rally now could be more meaningful, he stated that a run-up to a new ATH may happen quickly enough.

The analyst added that the community must not be afraid of 5-digit BTC price moves in the future.

Jason Williams, a co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital, has posted a similar tweet about BTC taking just seventeen days to jump from $10,000 to $20,000 back in 2017.

The community seems bullish as more people are also tweeting that BTC may advance well beyond $10,000 soon.
