Bitcoin Price Prediction: BTC Could Skyrocket to over $150,000 in Next Bullish Run by 2023

Not an April Fools' joke

As reported by U.Today, the number one cryptocurrency has experienced incremental growth during the first quarter. The Bitcoin price has managed to break above its 200-day moving average (MA) for the first time since March 2018.  

The fact that its volatility reached the 2016 level was a precursor to another bull run. However, it is not clear what triggered such an unexpected surge. There are some suggestions that the price move was caused by a short squeeze on Bitfinex, so Bitcoin bulls shouldn’t get too excited about that. If that’s the case, the price will shortly correct itself back to $4,200.

However, some cryptocurrency trading experts predict that it’s not the end of this craze price surge, and there is a possibility that we could see Bitcoin touching $5,500 by the end of the day.
