Bitcoin Price Predictions: One Industry Expert Says BTC Can Rocket to $1 Million


After hitting a new all-time high of nearly $70,000 on Nov. 9, Bitcoin (CCC:BTC-USD) (along with the rest of the crypto market) has steadily drifted into the red as crypto bulls await the next piece of major news to drive the Bitcoin price back up. This has driven many investors to look into the latest Bitcoin price predictions. Shockingly, major Bitcoin innovator and blockchain miner, Blockstream, says it’s only a matter of time before it hits $1 million.

So where is the coin actually headed?

Despite its current dip, Bitcoin only continues to add functionality to its already thriving blockchain system. On Saturday, El Salvador, the only country where Bitcoin is legal tender, announced plans for an entire city that functions off the cryptocurrency.

As part of “Bitcoin Week,” El Salvador President Nayib Bukele unveiled “Bitcoin City.” Located near a volcano and dedicated to BTC, the city will function as a financial sector of the country.

Bukele also mentioned plans to issue a 10-year, $1 billion “Bitcoin bond.” As mentioned in the presentation, at the halfway point of the bond, El Salvador will begin selling $500 million in Bitcoin to return higher dividends to bond owners. At the presentation, Bitstream Chief Strategy Officer Samson Mow, dove into the plan.

“35% year-over-year is conservative. But at the end of the 10 years, or in the 10th year of the bond, your annual percentage yield will be 146%. The first country to do it, which will be El Salvador, will have a massive advantage. If Bitcoin at the 5-year mark reaches $1 million, which I think it will, they will sell Bitcoin in 2 quarters and recoup that $500 million dollars. In three and a half quarters, they will have enough to pay back the entire bond. I think that’s pretty good.”

That’s a high estimate, even for the lofty, unicorn-dusted world of cryptos.

Being bullish on Bitcoin is no new phenomenon, but how far down the rabbit hole will BTC bulls go? Well, with the crypto currently at $58,151 at the time of writing, here’s what some experts think about the coin’s future.
