Bitcoin Price may Reach to $1 million: Early Bitcoin Investor
According to a Billionaire and early investor in Bitcoin, Chamath Palihapitiya, current bitcoin price is pretty far from the actual price it deserves. He believes that if the circumstances favors Bitcoin, its price would reach to $1 million in coming years. In an interview with Anthony Pompliano, Chamath shared his insight about the future of Bitcoin. He started investing in bitcoin when its price was $80, and Chamath was once allegedly owned 5% of the total Bitcoin.
During the interview, Chamath asserted about the limited stock of bitcoin that distinguish it from other assets and hence bitcoin has a potential to reach to a new high. The extreme volatility in its price and mass adoption is the main obstacle in realizing its actual worth, he concluded.
