The crypto-focused venture firm Pantera Capital just released its latest outlook on Bitcoin and the overall crypto markets.

In a note to investors, CEO Dan Morehead says he expects an ongoing tidal wave of money printing to boost BTC as investors search for assets with a fixed supply.

“That tsunami of money will have a large impact on many things. In our markets it seems inevitable that it will push up the price of fixed-quantity things like bitcoin. If there are trillions more paper dollars, the law of supply and demand implies much more paper money to buy the same amount of cryptocurrency.”

Pantera’s analysis shows the Bitcoin price targeting $150,000 by August of next year.

As for the altcoin market, Pantera co-chief investment officer Joey Krug points out a number of coins have outperformed BTC’s 34% gains this year, including a 98% rise in 0x (ZRX), a 97% surge in Augur (REP) and an 88% jump in Ethereum (ETH).

It’s a trend that Pantera expects to continue in a new bull cycle.

“During cryptocurrency bull markets, we expect assets outside of bitcoin (alt-coins or alts) to outperform… Historically, alts haven’t outperformed until mid to late in the bull cycle.

For instance, from Jan 1, 2016 to Dec 31, 2016 bitcoin’s share of the market dropped from 91% to 87%. But by the end of 2017 it was down to 38%. It’s currently sitting at 65%.

The implication here is that over time we expect the performance gap between alts and bitcoin to widen over the course of the next year, with alts outperforming.”

According to Krug, another boom for initial coin offerings is unlikely to happen, and coins will need to prove their utility this time around.

The firm’s multi-currency hedge fund is currently outperforming BTC by about 20%.

Billionaire Chamath Palihapitiya Says He Bought 1,000,000 BTC in 2013, Warns Bitcoin’s Success Will Spell Global Economic Catastrophe

Chamath Palihapitiya views Bitcoin as financial doomsday insurance.

The 43-year-old billionaire, venture capitalist and chairman of spaceflight company Virgin Galactic says on the Unchained Podcast that investors should apportion 1% of their portfolio to BTC and hope it never pays off.

“I just think that if people have been hard working, with their heads down, they should have an opportunity to make sure that they don’t get wiped out if the government itself just continues to make a string of bad decisions that then have rising consequences. And Bitcoin, to me, is the only thing that I’ve seen so far that is really fundamentally uncorrelated to that decision-making process and to that decision-making body. 

Because at the end of the day, any other asset class – equities, debt, real estate, commodities – they’re all tightly, tightly coupled to a legislative framework and an interconnectedness in the financial markets that brings together many of the governments that are sort of behaving this way. And so it’s almost like a bet against the ruling class in some ways, and making sure that you have a small amount of insurance…

Insurance is something that pays off 1,000 bucks to a buck. You want these massive, massive asymmetric payoffs, because you want to be sure that a small amount of insurance can basically make you whole. And that’s why I think that you should just take 1% of your portfolio, put it in Bitcoin, never look at it… and hope that that 1% goes to zero.”
