Some crypto analysts may be calling for the moon, but some only expect Bitcoin (BTC) to reach $9,500 by year’s end, and not much higher than that. This is according to a recent poll/survey conducted by Finder, which was targeted at ten fintech “specialists” who are aware and knowledgeable about cryptocurrency and its ilk.
Per the South China Morning Post, which managed to obtain the results of the poll, Bitcoin will end the year at $9,659, 22% higher than current levels, if the average of price predictions from the specialists is hit. These fintech gurus purportedly included executives from Arca, BitBull Capital, and unnamed academics. What’s interesting was the exact path they expect for BTC and other digital assets to follow as we head into the latter half of 2019. Most postulated that they expect a pullback in the coming weeks and months, prior to a slow and steady uptrend to just below $10,000 by year’s end.
