BitMEX’s Arthur Hayes Predicts Bitcoin Will Hit $1,000,000 In This Bull Market Cycle

1 BTC to $1 Million: Cathie Wood Doubles Down On Decade-long Bitcoin Price Prediction

Arthur Hayes, the co-founder of BitMEX, has made a bold prediction regarding Bitcoin’s future price trajectory, suggesting that the top crypto asset could hit $1 million during this ongoing bull market.

During an interview with popular crypto podcaster Anthony Pompliano this week, Hayes expressed confidence in Bitcoin’s long-term prospects, stating, “I think that bitcoin will go to $1 million by the end of this cycle.” 

Hayes’ optimism stems from the increasing mainstream adoption of Bitcoin, as evidenced by the ease with which investors can now purchase Bitcoin ETFs with a click of a button. He further expressed belief that the current bull market is still in its nascent stages, fueled by global economic uncertainty and the resulting desire for a hedge against inflation. 

“I don’t not think people have big enough imaginations right now [Bitcoin] went so fast as $70,000. Why did it go so fast as $70,000 because a bunch of people now can like click a but check a box and buy some Bitcoin ETF… this bull market is just getting started,” he added.

Notably, Hayes’ prediction aligns with those of Cathie Wood, the CEO of ARK Invest, who recently announced that Bitcoin could reach the $1 million mark before 2030. Wood’s optimism stems from her conviction in Bitcoin’s potential and ability to reshape the global financial landscape.

Moreover, Samson Mow, the Chief Strategy Officer at Blockstream, recently voiced Bitcoin’s future trajectory, saying that it could hit $1 million this year amidst unprecedented demand. Mow’s outlook underscored the increasing demand for Bitcoin as a store of value and hedge against inflation, particularly in the face of economic uncertainty and monetary stimulus measures.

That said, Hayes’ prediction comes amidst heightened volatility and fervent speculation surrounding Bitcoin. After experiencing significant price surges in the past few months and printing a new all-time high of $73,750 earlier this month, Bitcoin is facing a price recoil, mainly attributed to profit-taking, raising questions as to how low it could dip.

Pompliano, however, weighed in on the cryptocurrency’s recent drawdown during an interview with Bloomberg on Wednesday, highlighting Bitcoin’s resilience in the face of recent pullbacks, emphasizing the cryptocurrency’s historical context and long-term growth potential.

“This is actually a very small drawdown in a bull market,” Pompliano stated, comparing the current market correction to previous cycles experienced by Bitcoin.

“I think one of the lessons of Bitcoin over the last 3 four years is no one knows what the future is going to be and we’ve even violated some of those historical rules that people held…we had never seen Bitcoin hit an all-time high before the having both of those rules got broken and so I think we’re in Uncharted territory,” added Pompliano.

Bitcoin traded at $65,000 at press time, reflecting a 0.38% surge over the past 24 hours.
