Crypto’s ‘Positive Story Remains Intact’: Wall Street Strategist Undeterred by Bitcoin Price Decline


It's been an inauspicious year so far for the digital currency markets, and — as confirm by the Bitcoin value's more than 50 percent backtrack from its all time high — the unpredictability has started to shake out investors with weak hands.

Bitcoin bears have started to take their triumph laps, with doubters anticipating that its dive to zero is presently unavoidable.

Wall Street Strategist Tom Lee, be that as it may, declines to falter from his hopeful standpoint — or his bullish Bitcoin value forecast.

Lee, a previous JPMorgan value strategist who now runs market research firm Fundstrat Global Advisors, told customers that now is a superb chance to consider adding to their cryptoasset stakes.

"It has been a terrible few weeks but the fundamental positive story for crypto remains intact,” CNBC cites him as saying in the report, distributed late Thursday night just hours after the Bitcoin price declined below $8,000 for the first time since November.

He advised customers not to freeze, advising them that all through Bitcoin's history, offer offs have been for the most part been trailed by critical energizes inside a moderately brief timeframe. In light of this information, he said that it is justified regardless of the hazard for financial specialists to add to their positions, regardless of whether the market keeps on declining.

"Past sell-offs were followed by rallies of ~150% within 84 days,” Lee said. “In other words, we think the risk/reward at these levels warrants adding here, even if there is additional downside."

Lee repeated that, as indicated by Fundstrat's valuation show, the Bitcoin cost should reach $20,000 by mid-year and at last achieve the noteworthy $25,000 development before the market rings in the new year. He included that the Bitcoin Investment Trust (OTC: GBTC) — which as of late executed a 91-for-1 stock split — should exchange at $30 amid that same time period.

Other huge top coins, then, have a likewise bullish future. He figure that Ethereum, which is right now exchanging at $943, should dramatically increase to $1,900 before the year's over, while NEO and Ethereum Classic could reach $250 and $60, individually.
