With Bitcoin priced close to $ 50,000, momentum has returned to the market and strong hands have amassed more Bitcoin than ever before. A 2013 style double bubble is in sight.
In the 2013 cycle, Bitcoin price fell 75% from highs before rising a staggering 1,750% in less than six months. We are not saying that the rally will take place again with the same performance, but rather an explosive “double bubble” within the traditional four-year boom-and-bust cycle.
The market has also gone through a fairly similar cycle compared to 2013, with an initial parabolic run-up, a large amount of coins becoming liquid before an aggressive re-accumulation and parabolic run-up.
If Bitcoin continues to move into strong hands at the current pace, a parabolic run-up will begin that most in the world cannot comprehend. Bitcoin, which is now worth nearly $ 1 trillion in net worth, can grow to $ 5 trillion in fortune relatively easily in 2022.
After all, $ 1 of capital flowing into Bitcoin adds far more than just $ 1 of market capitalization to the asset, and during a bull market where most market participants hold, the market value explodes up to Bitcoin’s realized value. When 1% of the capital from global debt funds flows into Bitcoin as a safe haven as the global economy experiences massive disruption in the supply chain resulting in soaring prices across the board.
