💰 Crypto’s Next $1 Trillion Coin: http://teeka.cryptonewsalerts.net
Bitcoin still gets criticized for being too volatile, but one Bloomberg analyst believes that BTC is conversely becoming a “risk-off” choice for investors.
In a tweet on March 25, Mike McGlone, senior commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, said that this year marked a watershed moment for the largest cryptocurrency and that a $400,000 Bitcoin price would ‘rhyme’ with history.
McGlone uploaded a chart of the BTC/USD average price and the Bitcoin Liquid Index, a price ticker specially created for institutional use.
“Well on its way to becoming a global digital reserve asset, a maturation leap in 2021 may be transitioning Bitcoin toward a risk-off asset, in our view,” he wrote.
A potential price peak this year, with previous behavior as context, could be as much as $400,000 per bitcoin, the chart shows. This dwarfs other estimates, such as that of stock-to-flow, which calls for an average of $288,000 between now and 2024.
While McGlone did not provide exact details of the factors behind Bloomberg’s view, the idea of Bitcoin reducing, rather than increasing portfolio risk is the talking point of the year among corporates. New reports of treasury allocations to BTC appear frequently, with appetite unfazed by price action.
“My mission right now is to fix the balance sheets of the world,” Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy, one of the largest Bitcoin treasury investors, said in an interview with TIME this week.

Here’s How Bitcoin Dolphins, Sharks and Whales Are Playing the Crypto Markets, According to Top Analyst Willy Woo
On-chain analyst Willy Woo is providing his take on how large Bitcoin (BTC) holders are attacking the market.
As Bitcoin takes a dive to the low $50,000 range this week, new crypto whales are entering the market, according to Woo.
“Some bearish scares over whales selling down, here’s more complete picture. Chart: BTC held by dolphin/shark/whales (100-10,000 BTC).
Whales becoming dolphin/sharks, new buyers coming in, cohort is still accumulating, they usually sell in the middle of the bull run. Still bullish.”
Woo points out that although it may appear as though whales have been parting with their BTC at an alarming rate causing the recent sell-off, the Bitcoin being sold on the market are newer supplies likely held by entities that are taking profits after the largest crypto asset’s huge run up.
“This is a new species of whale; hedge funds. Likely selling down for end of quarter rebalancing after such a good run from $10,00 BTC last year. Doesn’t look like the typical OGs selling (which they do on every bull season rally). The coins being sold lately are relatively young.
Bitcoin addresses are forensically clustered into wallets held by individual participants before extracting this view. Beware that looking at just raw address balances, which I’ve seen posted elsewhere can be misleading.”
