JPMorgan predicts Bitcoin could hit $150,000
According to the latest prediction by JPMorgan, Bitcoin could reach $150,000 in the long term. In comparison, last year, the target price for the flagship crypto set by the American banking giant was a bit lower and constituted $146,000. To reach the $150,000 mark, Bitcoin would have to match private sector investment in gold, estimated at $2.7 trillion. JPMorgan also stated that BTC’s fair value at the moment is at $38,000 since it is four times more volatile than gold.
Even though Bitcoin started recovering from a multi-month low of $32,950 on Jan. 24 after peaking at $45,501 on Feb. 8, it seems that the rally has now stopped. Per CoinMarketCap, BTC is still trading at around $45,000.
