The $12,000 Bitcoin has long been awaited/forecasted by many crypto enthusiasts, and analyst. Interestingly, Skew informed in a tweet today that the price of the cryptocurrency has since increased by 12 percent after Square’s announcement that it has allocated one percent of its reserve asset in the cryptocurrency. This followed the recent move initiated by MicroStrategy, a business intelligence company, which now has a total of $425 million in Bitcoin.
Will Bitcoin maintain the $12K price?
At the moment, the price of the cryptocurrency looks good as it continues to incur more points gradually. However, it remains uncertain if the cryptocurrency will maintain the price throughout the month and the next. However, cryptocurrency analysts like Timothy Peterson are confident that Bitcoin will finish stronger.
While using the Metcalfe model, Peterson shared that Bitcoin is most likely going to continue on the $12K price trend.
