Despite the recent market drop of 50%, investors are still bullish on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, according to a survey.
With the cryptocurrency’s wild price swings and the controversy surrounding its environmentally unfriendly energy usage, bitcoin investor Tim Draper is sticking to his prediction that bitcoin will hit $250,000 by the end of 2022 or early 2023.
Recovery of coins
Although the market remains uncertain, many coins have recovered significantly. Despite this, 87 percent of respondents said they wanted to grow their crypto holdings in the coming quarter, up from 80 percent in the previous quarter. By the end of Q3 2021, 39% of respondents stated that the Bitcoin price would fall between $56,000 and $70,000, while 28% projected a price between $41,000 and $55,000.
The percentage of people who thought Bitcoin will hit $71,000 was 18 percent, down from 20% in the previous poll. Notably, more than nine out of ten people polled believe the US Securities and Exchange Commission would eventually approve a Bitcoin ETF, an exchange-traded fund that proponents say will raise Bitcoin’s value by exposing it to institutional investment.
Cardano (ADA) was the most popular altcoin among respondents who stated they were most bullish on it. Cardano (ADA) was voted the most bullish altcoin by 55 percent of respondents, followed by Dogecoin (DOGE) (11%) and Chainlink (LINK) (6%). Polkadot (DOT) was voted the least bullish altcoin by 6 percent of respondents (6 percent).
Despite the fact that Bitcoin (BTC) and the wider cryptocurrency market have experienced one of the biggest drops in recent past, investors appear to be more optimistic than ever about Bitcoin and a slew of altcoins’ future prospects.
