Analysts at JP Morgan are bullish on Bitcoin
JP Morgan, an American banking giant, predicted Bitcoin price could hit $150,000 in the long term. JP Morgan had set a target of $146,000 for Bitcoin price in 2021. Analysts believe if investment inflow in Bitcoin continues, the asset could match private sector investment in Gold, estimated at $2.7 trillion.
Though analysts at the banking giant believe Bitcoin is currently overvalued, it could gain value as the asset’s volatility drops. Based on the current assessment, Bitcoin’s volatility is four times that of Gold.
In addition to JP Morgan’s prediction, activity in USD Tether is considered a reliable indicator of Bitcoin price rally points at a BTC bull run. Daily active addresses on the Tether network have dropped to two-year lows, following the high in mid-November 2021.
Historically, a drop in stablecoin transactions coincides with a Bitcoin price rally.
In addition to the drop in on-chain activity on USD Tether, large wallet investors saw a spike in Bitcoin accumulation. Mega whale addresses holding 1,000 or more Bitcoins have continued accumulation through recent Bitcoin bloodbaths.
