For October, the leading cryptocurrency gained almost 40 percent. It remains to be seen whether the market value of BTC would continue to increase this month in accordance with the historical performance these past five years. Already there are several on-chain metrics in support of this, including declining exchange balances. 

PlanB, the popular Bitcoin analyst and creator of the Bitcoin stock-to-flow model, made came close to predicting BTC price for October. His “worst-case scenario” for the crypto was $63,000, but the price ended less than $2,000 away. He said it’s a “3% rounding round,” and it is close enough for him. Hence, PlanB still believes there is a chance for BTC to hit $98k in November and $135k in December based on the stock-to-flow model. His targets for August and September were all realized.
