1. Tom Lee: Like FAANG Stocks, BTC Will Hit $25K Due to ‘Network Value’

Tom Lee — a renowned Bitcoin bull, co-founder and Wall Street strategist at Fundstrat Global Advisors — has predicted that the price of bitcoin will reach $25,000 by 2022. He made his argument when asked about the logic behind Fundstrat’s forecast for Bitcoin.

He said, ” Cryptocurrencies are network value assets, meaning the more people hold the asset, the greater the value. In fact, it’s a log function — so if you double the users hold it, you get a quadrupling of value. To go to $25,000 you essentially need a little less than 4x rise, which means you need to double the number of people who hold Bitcoin.”

Dmitriev said BRICS has already reduced its use of USD in settlements over the last five years from 92 to 50 percent, while ruble-based transactions climbed from 3 to 14 percent.
