Two years ago, venture capitalist and noted Bitcoin investor Tim Draper publicly stated that BTC will hit $250,000 by 2022.

Yet, as Bitcoin continues to gain interest from investors, Draper revealed to Cointelegraph during an interview that a $250,000 price prediction may have been conservative:

“I think it’ll certainly hit that. But a lot of people are thinking that $250,000 was a little too conservative.” 

Draper also discussed the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the blockchain space, noting that tokenization will play a major role in solving problems related to global shipping and real estate.

Additionally, Draper shared his thoughts on decentralized finance, or DeFi, saying he wants to “‘DeFi’ the venture capitalist business” moving forward.

CT: Right now, the world is in the midst of a crisis. Which technological breakthrough will help humanity come out stronger on the other end? 

TD: Tokenization will advance. We’re seeing it in real estate, global shipping and in everything where items of value need to be moved between parties.

Now, these items can be transferred over the internet, which is so useful for industries like real estate and global shipping.

In the case of real estate, you could buy a piece of my house, or you could tokenize my real estate and own a piece of that property without having to buy the whole thing. 

Tokenization and shipping is also a great way for people to own containers to keep track of the entire Iot.

I think we’re going to see some extraordinary breakthroughs in shipping and also with any kind of logistic use cases.

CT: And are you still sticking with your prediction that Bitcoin will hit $250,000 by 2022?

TD: Yes, Bitcoin will hit $250,000 by 2022 or the beginning of 2023. That $250,000 is really based on a 5% market share of currencies.

I think that’s easily achievable, especially as more women start using Bitcoin, since they control 80% of retail spending. It’s really interesting that there used to be one in 15 Bitcoin wallets that women held, and now it’s advancing.

As women start using those wallets, they’ll realize this is much easier. I moved as much of my money as I felt fair into Bitcoin. And so, yes, I think it’ll certainly hit that, but a lot of people are thinking that was a little too conservative.

Bitcoin Price Hits $14,000 Exactly 12 Years After Whitepaper Released

The price of Bitcoin has surpassed the critical $14,000 mark, the highest level since January 2018.

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) surpassed $14,000 on Oct. 31, the day Satoshi Nakamoto released the Bitcoin whitepaper in 2008.

Since then, the world’s biggest cryptocurrency has seen remarkable and exponential growth across various areas.

Fast forward 12 years, since the October 31, 2008 release of the whitepaper, Bitcoin is in a different growth trajectory.

An institutional craze is leading the BTC rally, major financial institutions are supporting crypto assets, and the market has become increasingly liquid.

The 12-year anniversary of the Bitcoin whitepaper is particularly special for Bitcoin because it marks the third post-halving cycle.

Every four years, Bitcoin undergoes a block reward halving, which cuts the rate at which new BTC is mined by half.

This happens because 21 million BTC can ever exist on the blockchain.

As BTC approaches its fixed supply, the rate of production gets slowed.

A halving historically has had a positive impact on the price of Bitcoin.

It reduces the pace a new BTC supply is introduced to the market.

Consequently, every four years, there is less BTC flowing into the exchange market.
