BITCOIN PREDICTIONS

UPDATED: 1/21/18

Over the years since 2013 (the year I first started to seriously pay attention to Bitcoin) there have been many and I mean MANY predictions of what will happen with the Crypto Currency. I’d like to start a running blog on these predictions to see what actually pans out. If you follow me and this post — you will be updated and if you find one I don’t have I will add it. Let’s see what time will tell us!

Think about this: “While there are roughly 35 million millionaires in the world, there will only ever be a maximum of 21 million Bitcoins. That’s right — there will never be enough Bitcoins in existence for every millionaire in the world to own even a single one.” — David Dinkins, CoinTelegraph

Bubbles: Did the Bubble already pop? Will there be more bubbles or are we in the making of another now? How high can this go before we see another significant pull back? Seems the $10,000 level would be it?
