On Bitcoin's 11th birthday, it's almost time to say goodbye to the legendary 2019 prophecy that turned out to be completely wrong in October

Bitcoin, the first cryptocurrency that is celebrating its 11th anniversary today, has proven that it can defy all the odds.

With that being said, skyrocketing by 80 percent to keep a viral 4chan prophecy alive is probably out of its reach. At the time of writing, the number one cryptocurrency is sitting at $9,240

As reported by U.Today, an anonymous user posted a Bitcoin price prediction back in January 2018 on the /biz/ imageboard. It turned to be incredibly accurate, hitting every single target from December 2018 till July 2019.

Then, the mammoth-size drop that Bitcoin experienced on Sept. 25 has put a spanner in the works for Asuka cultists.

Bitcoin did surge by a headline-grabbing 40 percent a month later, which injected a new life into the prophecy (Edward Snowden himself tweeted about it).    

Too little, too late. With less than one day left till November, it's safe to say that one of the most prescient Bitcoin price predictions will be left in the past, but some traders are not losing faith. 

Even after the broken streak, there is still a possibility that the crypto community might recall the great 2019 prophecy one more time if Bitcoin touches $29,000 in February 2020.
