Bitcoin Price Prediction: Experts Summary
Bitcoin Price Predictions
Long-Term Investment Strategies
Sep 30, 2023
It is always fun to think about what the price of Bitcoin will be in the future, but what are the “experts” saying? A higher value for Bitcoin means that more and more crypto adoption is taking place. As many people know and understand, as the value of Bitcoin goes up, so does the rest of the cryptocurrency market.
Although we have discussed this before, here is a brief summary of how the value of bitcoin is determined. Bitcoin’s value is determined by supply and demand. If the demand for Bitcoin increases and the supply remains constant, then the price of Bitcoin will go up. Conversely, if the demand for Bitcoin decreases and the supply remains constant, then the price of Bitcoin will go down. “Supply” is referring to the amount of Bitcoin available on the open market for purchase, not the fixed supply of Bitcoin as an asset.
There are several factors that can influence the demand for Bitcoin, here are a few major factors:
Adoption: As more people start using Bitcoin, the demand for it increases, which can drive up the price.
Inflation: Bitcoin is designed to have a limited, finite supply, which means that it is not subject to inflation like traditional currencies. This can make it an attractive investment option for people who are concerned about inflation of their own local currency, or the global market.
Market sentiment: The price of Bitcoin can be influenced by market sentiment, which is the overall attitude of investors towards the market. If investors are optimistic about the future of Bitcoin, then the price may go up.
With all of that being said, here are some expert price predictions for Bitcoin:

You may be asking, but why Dreko? Why would you confuse me with all of these price predictions? None of the numbers are the same! Nobody could possibly know the future!
The reason behind these articles is to help encourage people to change their focus, and consider multiple factors from multiple angles. Sometimes, we get so focused on what is going on right now, that we can not zoom-out and think longer term. Bitcoin looks to be a very promising long-term investment opportunity based on industry “experts” opinion’s. The price of Bitcoin at the time of writing this article is approximately $27,000.
The question is, are you bold enough to buy when the price is depressed? And, are you strong enough to hold onto your investment until it matures?
