Mike Novogratz, CEO of crypto management firm Galaxy Digital, is revealing when he thinks Bitcoin will hit his target of $500,000.
In a discussion with Michael Saylor on the WORLD.NOW event hosted by MicroStrategy, Novogratz proposes that Bitcoin will continue to perform well, more so as a store-of-value asset rather than as a currency.
“I think we’ve hit a tipping point in this network effect I talked about, and my base case is: if I look at Bitcoin as a percentage of gold, I think Bitcoin is going to be digital gold. I know a lot of people disagree with me. They’ll think, ‘No, it going to be money. It’s going to be the blockchains of all blockchains,’ I just don’t think so. I think it’s got a beautiful lane as a store of value. It was perfectly designed as a store of value.”
Seeing it as a store of value asset, the Galaxy Digital head says he believes the largest crypto asset will continue to catch up to gold’s $10 trillion market capitalization as it prints gains of over 10x in as little as three years.
“I think of it as, ‘What percentage of market cap is gold?’ We’re about 6% of the gold market cap. My sense is by the end of the year we are easily 10%. So that gets you to Bitcoin $55,000-$60,000. I know as soon as we get to 10%, we’re going to say, ‘Well why 10? Why not 20?’ And when we get to 20%, we’re going to be 50%, and then we’re going to be 100%.
So I would be $60,000 end of this year, and I’m $500,000 probably like 2024-2025… It doesn’t happen overnight. It happens with more and more education, with more and more seminars like this, with more and more communities buying into the idea.”
At time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $47,888 according to CoinMarketCap.
