Fundstrat’s Bitcoin Price Rally Prediction Fell Flat: Tom Lee Explains Why

2년 전

Fundstrat Global Advisers is a finance market strategy firm well-known for making bullish predictions on cryptocurrency prices. Co-founder Thomas Lee posted the group’s predictions that the bitcoin price would reach up to $64,000 by the end of 2019, citing the future trajectory of Bitcoin mining infrastructure growth as an underlying cause. He also predicted $91,000 in two years.
Lee, a financial research analyst and Wall Street strategist, has in the past voiced his opinion that bitcoin will overtake gold as a store of value for the newer generations, and made another prediction prior to the fourth annual Consensus conference in New York regarding the crypto market overall.

Lee wrote to clients to point out that during the last Consensus conference, the bitcoin price rose by 69 percent and then 138 percent in the two months afterward. Last year’s conference saw attendance double from the year before, and this year the attendance also looked set to double from around 2,750 to over 7,000. The event took place from May 14 to May 16, with estimates on the actual attendance now reaching as high as 9,000.

Perhaps due to prior performance and the same conditions arising again, Lee predicted that the market would see a major rally during this year’s conference as well. While Lee pointed out that talks of mass regulation may put a damper on things, the overall message was clear:

“Bottom line: We expect BTC and cryptocurrencies to behave similarly to prior years and rally during Consensus.”

Unfortunately, it didn’t happen. Not only was there no rally but the market lost over $40 billion in value during the conference, with major currencies losing value across the board.
