Pantera Capital’s Big Bitcoin Price Prediction Playing Out Exactly As Forecast, Says Dan Morehead

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Pantera Capital founder and CEO Dan Morehead is doubling down on his bullish 2021 Bitcoin prediction, asserting that the leading crypto asset is still right on track to hit $115,000 by August 2021.

In Pantera’s latest Blockchain Letter, Morehead says that Bitcoin’s price movements, although delayed by a week, are playing out exactly as forecast based on the stock-to-flow projection published last year.

“Bitcoin is exactly on track with the forecast we made in our April letter. Our analysis was based on comparing the reduction in the supply/flow of bitcoin relative to the outstanding stock – at the time of each halving – and the subsequent impact on price.”

According to the projections set by Pantera, Bitcoin’s price lagged by as much as 15 weeks in July 2020. In December, Bitcoin began to catch up with Pantera’s projections and by mid-January, the leading cryptocurrency hit the ninth milestone in Pantera’s forecast after climbing to $38,000.

For the next date, February 15th, 2021, Pantera predicts Bitcoin will trade at $45,268.

Pantera makes its projections based on the Bitcoin halving cycle. Historically, Morehead says Bitcoin prices have surged after each halving, which happens every four years.

After the first halving in 2012, Bitcoin’s supply dwindled by a little over 15% in a span of 446 days as block rewards were halved from 50 to 25 BTC. Subsequently, Bitcoin witnessed a rally of 9,212%.

Following the 2016 halving, Bitcoin rallied by 2,910%.

If Bitcoin follows Pantera’s predicted trajectory, Morehead expects BTC to hit its peak in August 2021 with a price of $115,212, rising over 1,091% after the May 2020 halving.

“I’m not saying I’d bet our life savings that’s definitely going to happen, but I think it’s possible, and we’re right on pace to do that.”

Livecoin, one of the largest Russian exchanges just announced that it will be closing down operations. The official announcement noted that the exchange could not recover from the financial and technical losses incurred due to a hack in December 2020. Thus they have decided to seize their operations and return the remaining funds to their clients. The official announcement read,

OKEx

Dear clients, as we reported earlier, our service was under attack in December 2020. The investigation is in an active phase right now. Our service has been damaged hard technically and financially. There is no way to continue operative business in these conditions, so we take a hard decision to close the business and paying the remaining funds to clients.

The firm informed that clients can claim refurbishment of their funds by sending an official mail along with the details of their accounts and post verification they would be refurbished by the crypto platform. The last date for the claim is set to 17th March 2021, post which no claims for refurbishment would be entertained.

Livecoin Cites Technical & Financial Loss Beyond Recovery

Livecoin was hacked back in December 2020 which the exchange claimed was a dedicated and well-planned attack because of which they lost control of most of its servers. After taking over, the alleged hackers changed the pricing of listed cryptocurrencies to an abruptly high amount where Bitcoin was priced at $300,000 when the market price was around $24,000.

The crypto exchange did not reveal the extent of loss, however, they mentioned that it was beyond recovery. Research into the hacking revealed that the loss was estimated to be about $3.3 million where Livecoin users lost 106 bitcoin (BTC), 380 ether (ETH), 236 bitcoin cash (BCH), 567,000 XRP, 66.8 million DOGE, 56,000 Tether (USDT), and some other ERC-20 tokens.

While the exchange has promised to help its clients many users on Twitter claimed it was another exit scam.

Losing Bitcoin Keys Doesn’t Happen Anymore Says Galaxy Digital’s Mike Novogratz

Former Goldman Sachs hedge fund manager and CEO of Galaxy Digital – Mike Novogratz – has spoken about the most heated topic in discussion, Bitcoin private keys. Speaking to Yahoo Finance, Novogratz said that losing Bitcoin keys is a thing of the past and it doesn’t happen anymore.

As we know, the total Bitcoin supply has been fixed at 21 million coins. Currently, there is more than 18 million Bitcoin (BTC) under circulation. However, several hundred Bitcoin have been lost in the past because of not getting access to private keys or losing the password to access the private keys. Speaking to the publication, Novogratz said:

“Our estimate is 3 million were lost. When bitcoin was one cent or four cents or 20 cents, people didn’t take it that seriously. Most of the lost bitcoins aren’t happening today…They happened right at the early onset of this thing. No one’s losing bitcoin anymore,” he said.

Novogratz’s comments come soon after the New York Times reported stories of some individuals who have lost their passkey and have been unable to access their million-dollar-fortune in Bitcoin (BTC). A German programmer has been unable to access his $220 million Bitcoin fortune. Interestingly, he now has only guesses left for the password to a harddrive called IronKey, which contains the private keys of a digital wallet holding over 7000 Bitcoins.

Former Ripple CTO Stefan Thomas is also lost the password to an encrypted hard drive that contains over $200million worth of Bitcoin. Cryptocurrency data firm Chainalysis reports that of the total 18.5 million BTC in circulation, 20% of it i.e. around $140 billion appears to have lost. Wallet Recovery Services, a business helping to recover the lost keys said that they are getting around 70 requests every day who want to unlock their lost fortune.

At press time, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading 4.09% up at $37,004 with a market cap of $685 billion. JPMorgan strategists said that strong institutional inflow is necessary to push the BTC price above $40,000. Analyst Joseph Young notes three factors that can deliver a strong Bitcoin move northwards.
