According to Dan Tapiero, Managing Partner at 10T Holdings, the Bitcoin and crypto market is on the verge of a major transformation, with the world’s most valuable coin likely to soar to over $200,000 by May 2024. Citing data by Raoul Paul, the CEO of Real Vision, Tapiero suggests that traditional money managers must take notice and prepare for a paradigm shift in the financial landscape.
Tapiero bases this bullish forecast on the expected BTC liquidity surge in the coming months. Market participants hope the stringent Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will approve the first batch of Bitcoin ETFs in the next few trading weeks.
The Bitcoin ETF, set to be issued by some mainstream players in traditional finance, including BlackRock, will provide regulated vehicles through which institutional investors can get exposure to the coin. Based on Tapiero’s analysis, as more and more institutions adopt Bitcoin, its liquidity will increase, boosting prices.
With a Bitcoin ETF on the table, it would also mean the release of institutional-grade Bitcoin trading platforms. This will cement Bitcoin’s position in the industry and its potential role in reshaping finance.
Paul’s monthly GMI data, which tracks the sentiment of institutional investors, as Tapiero mentions, further reinforces the general bullish sentiment across the board. Looking at the GMI total liquidity index, the trend has been rising, suggesting that institutional interest in Bitcoin has also increased.
This trend also indicates that more funds and asset managers are likely allocating more of their portfolios to Bitcoin, expecting to ride the leg up or be on the safe side.
Looking at Tapiero’s preview, the managing partner thinks rising prices will seriously affect traditional money managers. As such, if Bitcoin rallies to $200,000 on increasing liquidity, in the partner’s assessment, ignoring this asset class could pose a significant career risk.
Notably, Tapeiro opines that managers who fail to embrace the transformative power of Bitcoin may trail. This is because crypto will continue to evolve and find adoption.
As of December 18, Bitcoin is firmly in an uptrend and expanding with rising trading volume. The coin is up 64% from its September 2023 lows. Though there has been a cool-off in the past few trading days, prices are trending above the 20-day moving average.
Accordingly, in the days ahead, how prices pan out will shape the medium term. As it is, the immediate resistance level lies at around $44,500. If buyers take charge, the coin may float to $50,000. Afterward, it may float to the all-time high of $69,000 in the sessions ahead.
