It seems that Mike Novogratz’s predictions, of Bitcoin touching $10000 by the year-end, are soon to turn true. The cryptocurrency has now surged past the $9400 mark.

You know what is the shopping trend for this Thanksgiving season? It is nothing but cryptocurrencies and Bitcoins all over. The most popular cryptocurrency is yet again on an upward trajectory as new optimism has swept the markets. Bitcoin, that was in a consolidating phase around $8200 almost a week back, has again started its momentum towards the $10000 mark as predicted by famous investor and hedge-fund manager – Mike Novogratz.

Bitcoin is currently trading to its new all-time high at $9457.11 according to CoinMarketCap with the trading volumes surging over $4.7 billion in the past 24 hours. This has taken Bitcoin’s own valuation alone to a whopping $167 billion. Off lately, it has been seen that many financial institutions have been actively participating in the Bitcoin markets owing to high investor demand for Bitcoin-based financial products. This has forced many big institutions and has outweighed their skepticism towards Bitcoin and its future growth.

It started with Goldman Sachs, who was an early critic of Bitcoin, to consider options to allow Bitcoin tradings to its huge number of customers. Also, the CME Group has announced that it is soon to start cash-settled Bitcoin futures contract in the second week of December. This announcement has majorly contributed to all the euphoria surrounding Bitcoins while increasing its price to almost above 90% in the last one month itself. This has caused several other funds and bond managing financial institutions to create lucrative investment options involving Bitcoins.

With a huge surge in the institutional money that is flowing in the Bitcoin market, many analysts have revised their previous targets for Bitcoin prices in 2018. Max Keiser, during his interview with Binary District Journal, said that the price of Bitcoin could move close to $50000 in 2018. He said: “Bitcoin only has to grab a few % points of the global multi-hundred trillion investment market to realize a market cap of $1 trillion and beyond.”

Keisar said that with huge support from the investors, several financial institutions have slowly started to realize the true potential of Bitcoin and its decentralized network of operation. While making a sharp attack on several banking institutions who have tried to downplay Bitcoins, Keisar said “No bank in the world is innocent. Anyone who harbours hope that someday we may be free from these rentiers, war-prison-casino industrial psychopaths at banks should take an interest in Bitcoin and crypt.”

Earlier this year, one of the most powerful persons on Wall Street and the current acting CEO of Wall Street – Jamie Dimon had expressed harsh view and strong criticism towards Bitcoin calling it a “fraud”. Although the Bitcoin market witnessed a knee-jerk reaction to Dimon’s comment, the Bitcoin investors were strong and quick enough to ignore Dimon and his comments and Bitcoin was seen back in momentum with many other factors playing in favor of it.

Now even majority of the banking institutions are taking Bitcoins seriously. Shinhan Bank – South Korea’s second-largest bank has recently announced that it is currently building cryptocurrency wallets for its customers in order to securely store their digital assets. The bank in its statement said “It is a service that keeps the Blockchain key through the virtual safe provided by the bank. We are looking for ways to provide a free service when depositing and charge a fee when withdrawing.” One of the bank’s spokesperson said that this new service compared to the outside services offered by exchanges while taking a jibe at the Bithumb exchange who servers recently crashed this month.

Ronnie Moas, founder of Standpoint Research and an early supporter of Bitcoin has recently revised his interim targets from $10000 to $14000. Ronnie said, “There have been many positive developments during the last five months and a few of the obstacles that were in Bitcoin’s way have been knocked down.”

With the first Bitcoin traded futures contracts by CME Group to be just around the corner, how Bitcoin fares in the last month of its glorious 2017 journey.


Illuminati, Mason, Anonymous I'll never tell. I can tell you this, global power is shifting and those who have the new intelligence are working to acquire this new force. You matter naught except to yourself, therefore prepare for the least expected and make your place in the new world order.
