The prominent Bitcoin bull and billionaire, investor Tim Draper still believes that Bitcoin will be worth $250,000 soon and cites a more or less specific period of time.
Until then, he says, Bitcoin is likely to remain in the $7,500 price range.
$250,000 per Bitcoin 6-12 months after the halvening
Tim Draper cites TA to make a basis for his bold prediction and says that within half-a-year or a year after the approaching Bitcoin halvening in May, the father crypto is bound to hit the astronomic mark of $250,000. And that’s a modest forecast, as he said in one of his earlier interviews.
This time, speaking to BlockTV, the billionaire also said that by the time a year passes after the halvening event, a lot of regular users will have likely chosen to use Bitcoin over bank cards since the latter eat away a 2.5-percent fee every time you make a purchase.
Referring to TA experts he works with, Draper admits:
“I don’t quite understand all that but that’s what they say”.
Then he adds, already speaking his mind:
“It’s pretty likely that we’re gonna hit $250,000 by end of 2022 or early 2023 based on customer adoption of Bitcoin and I think it’s spreading.”
As for the recent reports that more Bitcoin wallets have appeared, Draper says that this may be because a lot of people are giving Bitcoin out for the coming holidays as Christmas presents.
“I’s so frustrated with banks taking from 2.5 to 4 percent every time I swipe my credit card. I’m really for this new currency [Bitcoin] that’s frictionless.”
Women to drive Bitcoin adoption forward
When the interview host asked Draper why he believes that by 2022-2023 Bitcoin will reach the long-awaited mass adoption phase and why has not it happened already, Tim Draper said that the key role in this will be played by women:
“I think the flood gates are about to open because it turns out that women do about 75-80 percent of the shopping and only 1 out of 15 Bitcoin wallets is held by a woman. So once women realize they are wasting 2.5-4 percent every time they swipe their credit card they will definitely be starting to look for a better solution.”
