💰 BlockFi: Up To $250 Bitcoin Bonus: https://blockfi.com/cryptonewsalerts
Bitcoin (BTC) will be worth “infinity” and humanity will soon give up pricing it in U.S. dollars, says the CEO of cryptocurrency exchange Kraken.
Speaking to Bloomberg on March 4, Jesse Powell was characteristically bullish on Bitcoin as BTC/USD broke above $50,000.
“Of course, you know, we can only speculate, but when we measure it in terms of dollars, you have to think it’s going to infinity,” he told Bloomberg TV about future price trajectory.
“This national currency’s only fifty years old, it’s already showing extreme signs of weakness, and pretty soon I think people are going to start measuring the price of things in Bitcoin.”
Powell was commenting as the USD weakened alongside a macro market sell-off on Wednesday, an event which had next to no impact on Bitcoin. At the same time, the U.S. national debt quietly passed $28 trillion for the first time in history.
Despite a rejection of $50,000 support, Bitcoin bulls thus remained more than optimistic.
“The people that are believers in Bitcoin see… it’s going to replace all of the world’s currency, so that basically means whatever the market cap of the dollar is, the euro — all of that combined is what Bitcoin could be worth,” Powell continued.
“I think in the near term, people see it surpassing gold as a store of value, so I think $1 million as a price target within the next ten years is pretty reasonable.”
As Cointelegraph noted, Bitcoin closed February 26% above its target dictated by the stock-to-flow-based price models, with creator PlanB still confident that $100,000 will hit at some time this year.
Meanwhile, the gold eclipse argument has been steadily gaining support on social media in particular, often at the expense of gold bugs, who are left with increasingly little ammunition to defend their anti-Bitcoin stance.
As Cointelegraph reported, it was billionaire and former Bitcoin skeptic Mark Cuban who this week took SchiffGold.com CEO Peter Schiff to task over his love of the precious metal. Gold, he told Schiff, “is dead.”
“Bitcoin has been crushing gold since inception,” Kraken growth lead Dan Held added in response to claims by Schiff that a bet against gold was a losing one.

Bitcoin Price Charts Hint At Another Drop After Failing to Break $52K
Bitcoin (BTC) has halted its bull run in the past few weeks as the price has corrected from an all-time high of $58,000 to around $43,000.
Several arguments were found for the pullback, including a sell-off from miners and whales. The other primary reason for the correction is the sudden surge of yields across the world.
The 2-hour chart for Bitcoin shows a clear downtrend since the peak high in February at $58,000. Since then, bearish support/resistance flips have been happening suggesting further weakness in the near term.
This bearish support/resistance flip has happened at the $55,000 and $52,000 levels, with the latter serving as the current major area of resistance.
In recent days, Bitcoin’s price tried to break through this resistance zone but failed to do so. After such a failed breakout, retesting the levels below seems inevitable.
