Bitcoin to be worth $25,000 at the end of 2018 and $250,000 in 2022 ?!

The Crypto Revolution


Thursday last week the price of Bitcoin quickly rose $ 1,000 and since last Friday, the price of the largest cryptocurrency in the world has risen above $ 8,000 per BTC. In my previous post you could already read that according to Pantera Capital Bitcoin has now seen its bottom and if we can believe expert Tim Draper, Bitcoin can even rise to $ 250,000 by 2022...

Just dreams or soon to be reality? Lets hope the second...

Tim Draper is not just an expert. He invested in Skype, SpaceX and Tesla at an early stage. According to Draper, the sharp increase in Bitcoin's price is due to a strong increase in new capital, mainly from institutional investors.

Draper has a price target of $ 250,000 for Bitcoin within 5 years. This means that the cryptocurrency may increase by a factor of x31 over the coming years to a market capitalization of $ 5,000 billion. At the peak of the crypto market at the beginning of this year, the total market was not even worth $ 900 billion...

Still a long way to go which means still a lot of time to make money! (invest)


Is paying with Bitcoin the future?

Draper expects Bitcoin to be able to evolve into a currency that will be used by billions of users, traders, restaurants, companies, ... this requires much greater liquidity and market capitalization.

Tim Draper is already the third expert who dares to claim that Bitcoin will reach new ATH's and the value will keep increasing massively...

Peter Thiel, another technology god, also expects Bitcoin to be worth thousands of billions of dollars.

A third Bitcoin-believer with a much higher price target is Fundstrat analyst Tom Lee.

He expects Bitcoin to increase to $ 25,000 this year. Probably we will see the first new record in mid-2018 [at $ 20,000]. Then in the second half of the year the price can rise further to $ 25,000, according to Lee.



What are your thoughts on this?

Firstly I think these predictions sound amazing, but to be honest it's not even out of the question that this actually happens. Nobody can really see the future, but one thing is for sure: crypto is not going anywhere.

I think these predictions are really accurate and very likely to happen. I'm also very convinced that Bitcoin and other crypto will reach their ATH again this year. Okay the 250k bet is a wild one and nobody can really look that far in the future, but with the limitted supply of Bitcoin and the global increasing popularity... Why not?! I hope he is right.

Kind regards,


The target is higher than 250K if the logarithmic trend and technology advances hold, IMO

Those on the news talking about bubbles do not know what a bubble is. Been saying this is world changing since 2013 and it only continues to prove itself.

When things don't die after 10 is obviously time to start paying attention...

I hope we reach 1 million :-) But seriously nobody can really predict the future that far...

What are your thoughts on BTC hitting 25k this year? I read your article, it's a nice read but you don't seem to believe this is the real recovery yet?

Thanks for your comment.


I don’t believe this is the real recovery. The first bottom is usually not the bottom. What i saw were sellers in control the whole way and a little pressure relieved (albeit big percentage pressure bounce). What you want to watch next is where the sellers make a stand and then when it comes back down i want to see some puking panic action for a the bottom.

I am not sure is 25k at the end of 2018 is right, because i am looking sideways all 2018. But it could go from 8k to 25k in 60 days starting 2019 lol

Hmmm if you are right, I will probably just buy more... :-)

But anyway I do think that we might have seen the bottom, it seems like smart-money has re-entered the market since they were no longer able to short Bitcoin lower, interesting to see this play out. Hopefully it's not a giant bulltrap.

To be honest I would have less hope for cryptocurrency without the giant leap upwards, so I'm not sure a lot of people will sell when it drops back. On the opposite this huge pump gave hope and people want in again. I think the weak hands have already been shaken out of the market... :-)
