Expert opinion opinion
While many crypto enthusiasts are excited about the price rises, not everyone is so optimistic. Some, like David Rosenberg, a Canadian economist, believe the Bitcoin Value is too high right now. And it’s in a “huge bubble.” He said that knowing that the price would stay this high is not absolute.
On the other hand, the Bitfinex CTO, Paolo Ardoino, noted the opposite argument. He argues that the rise is indicative of Bitcoin’s growing popularity, and shows a “significant technological shift.” It is not yet possible to assess the results. Willy Woo, an Onchain analyst, also noted that the $ 100,000 target of Bitcoin is small. Many other experts have also given their views, on both sides.
