The main reasons behind Burniske’s prediction  

While explaining the rationale behind his prediction, Burniske said that Bitcoin’s network value is likely to hit the $1 trln mark if BTC is half as volatile as during the previous bull market.

Earlier, Burniske forecasted that the aforementioned milestone could be achievable by the end of 2021, which goes in line with the stock-to-flow (S2F) model.         

The analyst believes that Ethereum could race ahead of Bitcoin because of its smaller network value and robust on-chain economies.

He also adds that the top altcoin will be perceived as ‘the new kid on the block’ by the general public when crypto frenzy kicks into high gear.

Ethereum’s revival might be unlikely    

Burniske’s prediction was taken with a grain of salt by Messari’s founder Ryan Selkis who described it as ‘unlikely.’

As explained by Selkis, Ethereum’s chunk of the pie will be taken by competing Layer 1 projects in the likes of Polkadot and Algorand. Ethereum will struggle to replicate the ICO bubble, and it no longer serves as a sole reserve for tokens due to the proliferation of stablecoins. 

However, Burniske is certain that all Layer-1s will be ‘ghost towns’ and ICOs will be replaced by more mature capital formations such as DAOs.

According to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, use cases that go beyond finance could represent the future of crypto.
