Mike McGlone bullish on bitcoin
Meanwhile, another bitcoin bull, Bloomberg’s Senior Commodity Strategist Mike Mcglone tweeted that 2022 could usher in prices of $100,000 #Bitcoin, $50 #Oil, and $2,000 #Gold.
“Peaking commodities and the declining yield on the Treasury long bond point to risks of reviving deflationary forces in 2022, with positive ramifications on Bitcoin and gold,” he reasoned.
