The word spread by analysts

The founder of Morgan Creek Digital Assets, Anthony Pompliano, who recently bet on digital assets to outperform the S&P 500 index within the next ten years, believes that the bullish rally that we see at the moment is a short-term one.

In his recent interview with CNBC, Pompliano expressed his expectations that Bitcoin may go down to the $3,000 mark in the near future to find the bottom. Still, he believes in the positive future of Bitcoin, hoping that after Bitcoin has fallen to $3,000, the crypto market will reverse completely.
