If you’re a Bitcoin holder, I’m guessing you’re not really happy. After all, when you bought into the world’s largest cryptocurrency, the expectation was it would soon hit $100k on the charts. At least, that’s what some “analysts” said.
However, that hasn’t happened. In fact, one could argue that the crypto has moved in the opposite direction altogether. While BTC peaked at $69,000 on the charts, the cryptocurrency is now trading well under $20,000.
Now, can BTC resurrect itself and appreciate again? Sure, it can. When will that be though? Well, that’s a question with no clear answers at this point.
The cryptocurrency market is evolving quickly, and some specialists are beginning to question whether it is still worthwhile to invest in Bitcoin. On 15 June 2022, for instance, Bitcoin fell below $20,000 for the first time since December 2020.
At the time of writing, BTC was priced at $19,324. The 8-day exponential and 21-day simple moving averages seemed to be within the crypto’s coiling range on the chart too. The sideways price movement will soon be resolved by a rapid move, according to the compression between the two indicators.
This week, there has been a noticeable increase in volume too. The highest increase in transactions over the last five years was reported by Binance. In terms of foreign currency inflation, the upswing occurs at a fascinating point in time in the macroeconomic context. The British pound and the Japanese yen both saw sharp devaluations in September. In an effort to make up for their losses and obtain new yields, holders of the aforementioned currencies may be contributing to the increase in volume.
The price of Bitcoin has struggled to maintain itself above the psychological support level of $20,000 for the entire month of September. Without a strong push from whales and retailers, a significant price hike seems far off.
Top-tier Bitcoin whales are continuing to sell, and they currently have between 100 and 10,000 BTC. Over the course of the previous year, 3.5% of the supply on these crucial addresses was moved to locations having lower impact on future price fluctuations. Just in September, another 0.4% of BTC’s supply was burned. A significant tendency to watch out for in October is the accumulation of potential whales.
Since there is still a dearth of unique BTC traveling from address to address, the NVT signal has given out a bearish signal for the second consecutive month. A change in the same could indicate a bullish trend.
And yet, the crypto has developed into one of the largest assets in the world from being ultimately almost worthless. Bitcoin’s market capitalization peaked even higher than several well-known companies.
One thing that is instantly clear from this data is that Bitcoin’s price cycles are getting shorter. Furthermore, even though the coin frequently loses value, the average price of Bitcoin keeps rising. This indicates a promising pattern for the future.
And despite everyone writing it off, the crypto-sector, including Bitcoin, is renowned for its resilience and capacity for comebacks. For the past eight years, different financial experts have consistently predicted that the Bitcoin bubble will burst “soon.” However, the coin is still in demand and BTC investors make significant returns.
Why these projections matter
The following article will touch upon these projections. With BTC emerging as a strong store of value of late, it is crucial investors are aware of where popular analysts see the cryptocurrency heading over the next decade. These projections, while not an absolute certainty in any way, can help traders and holders make smart decisions.
That’s not all, however. According to CoinGecko, for instance, Bitcoin enjoys a market share of just under 38%. While this figure isn’t as high as it was back in 2017 or even, 2021, it’s a significant share. By extension, what it means is that whatever happens to Bitcoin, the rest of the altcoin market is bound to see a ripple effect. Ergo, even if you’re only into altcoins, what BTC performs will affect you too.
This article will briefly look at the cryptocurrency’s recent market performance, with a special focus on its market cap, volume, and rate of appreciation/depreciation. The same will be expanded upon with the use of datasets such as non-zero addresses, no. of whale transactions, et al. It will conclude by summarizing the projections of the most popular analysts/platforms, while also looking at the Fear & Greed Index to assess the mood of the market.
Bitcoin’s price, volume, and everything in between
At the time of writing, Bitcoin was trading at $19,324 on the price charts, having gained by 2% over the last 7 days. Furthermore, its 24-hour trading volume was recorded to be $14.8B.
Needless to say, BTC’s price movement had an impact on its market cap too. When the crypto’s price hit a short-term peak on 30 July, so did the market capitalization, with the same rising to $469 billion. At press time, it was down to $370 billion. As expected, BTC/USDT was the most popular trading pair on the market, with Binance enjoying a share of over 7.8% for the same.
On 19 September, 620K Bitcoin tokens were added to all exchanges, according to Santiment’s Exchange Inflow Indicator. As a result, there are currently 11,879,200,000 dollars’ worth of Bitcoin available for sale at any time.
The aforementioned may be good news for investors. Especially since many would see this as a good opportunity to buy BTC on the low. In fact, while BTC is still over 69% away from its ATH of over $69,000, there’s a lot of optimism around.
Consider the comments of the legendary Bill Miller, for instance. He was in the news a while back when he claimed,
“Bitcoin’s supply is growing around 2.5 percent a year, and the demand is growing faster than that.”
To Miller, this growth in demand will be accompanied by a corresponding hike in price too, with a target of $100,000 being thrown around by some. In fact, a similar logic was applied by Bloomberg Intelligence when it claimed that the demand and adoption curves pointed to a projection of $100,000 by 2025.
One can argue that over the last few years, much of Bitcoin’s demand and adoption has been driven by its emergence as a store of value. In fact, while quite a few are into it for the tech, many others are into Bitcoin for a good return on their investment. It is in this regard that it’s worth looking at how its ROIs have been. According to Messari, for instance, at the time of writing, BTC was offering negative ROIs of -27% and -41% over a 3-month and a 1-year window, respectively.
Understandably, the aforementioned datasets are products of how BTC has been doing on the price charts of late. Thanks to its most recent drawdown, its ROIs have been negative. Even so, there are a few factors that seem to underline a bullish turn for the world’s largest cryptocurrency.
For instance, the number of Bitcoin addresses holding 0.1+ coins hit an ATH. Furthermore, the $BTC Percent Supply in Profit (7d MA) just hit a 1-month high of 60.513% too while the aSOPR (7d MA) struck a 3-month high.

Furthermore, according to IntoTheBlock, 53% of investors recorded profit at BTC’s press time prices. On the contrary, 39% of the holders were in loss.
In addition to this, holder composition by time projected something positive too. A total of 62% held their coins for a period of more than one year, while 32% have held their coins for between one to 12 months.
Proving more support for the holding activity, Glassnode too underlined something similar. BTC’s addresses with a balance of 1 BTC hit a new high.
That’s not all. In fact, despite the bearish outlook, the adoption rate didn’t fail to satisfy the crypto’s credentials.
Talking about adoption, BTC acquiring giants within this game (large holders) too reiterated the trend. For instance, look at MicroStrategy‘s latest spree.
In a prospectus filed with the SEC on 9 September, the company aims to sell up to $500 million in stocks to fund more Bitcoin purchases. Since 2020, MicroStrategy has purchased about 130,000 Bitcoins, worth more than $2 billion, using funds raised from stock and bond offerings.
“We may use the net proceeds from this offering to purchase additional Bitcoin,” the company said in the filing.
Publicly traded software company MicroStrategy (MSTR) is already the single-largest corporate holder of Bitcoin
Now that the background and context is taken care of, what do popular platforms and analysts say about where they see Bitcoin heading in 2025 and 2035? Well, only one way to find out.
Bitcoin Price Prediction 2025
Before we get to predictions, it’s important that one salient feature be identified and highlighted. Predictions vary. From one platform to the other, from one analyst to the other, predictions can be significantly different from each other.
Consider the year 2025, for instance –
According to Changelly, Bitcoin’s average trading price will be as high as $124,508 in 2025, with the platform claiming it might go as high as $137k.
On the contrary, there is reason to believe that the cryptocurrency’s upside won’t be as high. Why? Well, because the crypto is yet to be uniformly supported by global regulatory and legislative regimes. With CBDCs being slowly introduced in many countries, the attitude towards cryptos isn’t exactly positive either.
Finally, the last six months also highlighted the tendency of most retail investors to run with their holdings once the market bloodbath starts.
Another interesting way to look at it is using the growth of tech to highlight how far Bitcoin might go.
Consider the simple case of Google, for instance. Despite recent turmoil, it’s expected to grow exponentially over the next 5 to 10 years. However, it can be argued that this growth will go hand in hand with the growth of Bitcoin and the crypto-market, by extension. This, owing to the correlation between the two.
Bitcoin searches on Google being 7x and 42x higher than the no. of searches for USD and Euro, respectively, is evidence of the same. In fact, according to studies, there has historically been a 91% correlation between BTC prices and Google search volumes.
Bitcoin Price Prediction 2030
For starters, one thing must be made clear. 2025 and 2030 are five years apart. Predictions are difficult to get right as it is. It’s perhaps even more difficult when the timeframe in question is a good 8 years…
