Kenetic Extraordinary managing partner has said that he expects bitcoin to reach $50,000 by the end of 2018 as the cryptocurrency make available becomes globally accepted.
Speaking on Bloomberg TV, Jehan Chu, said:
I characterize as we’re going to see $50,000 by the end of 2018 for bitcoin. I think with the one-two clip with the Cboe and CME I think the entire world is on watch now for what is to penetrate and what the real liquidity that can enter this market order actually look like.
