What would Bitcoin go to if it repeated previous post halving price cycles?

in LeoFinance2 months ago

History doesn't always repeat exactly, but it sure does often rhyme!

With the halving now firmly in the rear-view mirror and the next bull market seemingly being underway, how high COULD this next bull market phase go exactly?

While none of us has a crystal ball, it sometimes helps to look to the past to get ideas of what to expect in the future.

In this instance lets look at the past post halving bull market rallies and compare them to where we are now to get an idea of what may or may not happen.

Sound fun?

Ok, here goes..

If we use a "1" to represent our halvings, we can use that as a starting point for previous and present post halving bull market rallies in bitcoin.

A chart of that looks like this:

As you can see this makes it very easy to see how the present rally would perform if it repeated the performance of the past post halving bull market rallies.

What should we expect exactly?

Like I said above, there is no guarantees that it plays out in the exact same fashion (or even in a similar fashion) but if it somehow did, here's the prices this next rally would get to...

  • 1st post halving rally: ~$800k
  • 2nd post halving rally: ~$250k

The current price is ~$11,200.

As you can see, if this next rally does anything close to the previous rallies, we are going to see the price of bitcoin go up anywhere from 25x to 75x.

Personally I don't think it will, as you will notice the second rally had smaller returns than the first, I think this 3rd rally will have smaller returns than the second.

And that makes sense to me as bitcoin gains adoption and more people know about it, plus the law of large numbers starts to play a role, the returns will go down in percentage terms.

If we saw a similar drop in returns this time around as we saw from the 1st post halving rally to the 2nd post halving rally, we would see returns somewhere around 10x from the current price.

It's not 25x, but still not too shabby!

And who knows, maybe it repeats what it did the last time and blows my predictions out of the water. :)

Stay informed my friends.

I am roughly counting on a 10x

My personal price target is $100k by the end of next year, but I also tend to be slightly conservative with my price targets. Seems weird saying $100k could be conservative...

$250,000 seems reasonable with current fundamentals by next Christmas. Who knows, maybe the next Fibo at $377,000 comes into play.

Those numbers seem crazy considering we are having trouble busting through $12k currently, but when the market starts catching FOMO, it really catches FOMO.

Even if Bitcoin pulls a 5x from this point, that is a wonderful return.

And to keep pace, Peter Schiff's gold would have to hit $10,000.

The growth rate is something to keep in perspective. A 10x wouldnt be the most outlandish estimate for Bitcoin's price.

Yep, I would be pretty happy with a 5x return over the next 18 months and I am sure many out there would as well.
