Two out of the three charts point to realistic upside targets of $1 million per BTC. Can Bitcoin truly reach a valuation so high?
Realizing Bitcoin’s Long-Term Disruptive Potential
Bitcoin has incredible disruptive potential. It could one day replace all of the world’s money and become the global reserve currency, or it could fail and go to zero. It’s a risk that those who invest in cryptocurrencies are willing to take.
For anyone who did so earlier on, it led to life-changing wealth.
Bitcoin started its life virtually worthless, and over the course of the more than a decade in the market, has reached a peak price of $20,000.
The booming crypto asset after fell into a bear market, but ever since crypto investors have been salivating at what would be possible at the next peak.
Valuation models, charts, and more have all been produced to support theories that Bitcoin price could reach astronomical figures.

The third and final chart, called the “Perfect REgression Channel” plots a standard deviation to $400,000, but with the second deviation to as high as $1 million.
With two out of three charts supporting prices of $1 million per BTC, could such valuations really be possible?
Bitcoin is incredibly scarce and was designed to only increase in value as the asset is adopted. Meanwhile, USD is heading toward hyperinflation. The perfect storm for Bitcoin to reach such prices is here and now.
