Bitcoin has started a bull run, which could skyrocket to $ 100,000
Speaking during a market discussion on January 31, YouTube bloggers, The Moon (Carl Runefelt) and DataDash (Nicholas Merten) said Bitcoin has started a bull market for some time. During that time, BTC / USD increased by more than 30%, making Bitcoin the second largest investment opportunity in 2020, just behind Tesla stock.
Recognizing that time frames play an important role in determining the characteristics of Bitcoin's up or down markets, however, Moon and DataDash have shared some doubts about the overall trajectory of the market.
“Until the price reaches $ 20,000, we won't see parabolic activity similar to previous cycles, like when prices went from $ 1,000 to $ 20,000 dollars in 2017.”
Merten added that the target for the next bull run is from $ 80,000 to $ 100,000.
