Digital Assets: Analyst Projects $60K For Bitcoin In 2021
Investing.com analyst Jesse Cohen says BTC could achieve that price in the first half of 2021.
A rise in crypto adoption, institutional support, and money-printing by global central banks could propel bitcoin to a price of $ 60,000, according to Jesse Cohen, a senior financial analyst at Investing.com. (Investing.com)
Cohen’s analysis on BTC
Cohen cited the following rationales for his bullish take on the leading cryptocurrency.
- Bitcoin will continue its bullish strength into 2021 as more retail and big-name institutional buyers enter as investors
- Bitcoin has benefited from the influx of first-time novice investors, drawn in by its stupendous performance in 2020
- Ultracheap money from global central banks for propping up economies is likely to find its way into many “risk-perceived” assets such as bitcoin
- Anything could happen in this market, but bitcoin will likely reach the $ 60,000 level probably in the first half of 2021.
In moderation, Cohen did cite the risks from “what the Biden administration could mean for cryptos,” as bitcoin moved into the mainstream and captured greater investor (and regulatory) attention.
He also said that the route to $ 60,000 may not be smooth and that he expected a retracement.
“The question is just how deep will it be?”
