Mike McGlone Says $20,000 Is The New $5,000 For Bitcoin, But Is He Right?

With the recent Bitcoin price crash has come a number of speculations out of the market. Amateurs and experts alike have been giving their predictions on what they believe will happen going forward. While most have been bearish, the forecast from Mike McGlone is a rather bullish one. The Bloomberg analyst has sparked hope in the hearts of some with his forecast that $20,000 is the new $5,000 for bitcoin.

Good News For Bitcoin

McGlone took to Twitter to share his forecast for the leading cryptocurrency in the market. Panic had washed through investors when the digital asset had declined to the $20,000 level, tethering just slightly above it. While many believe that this was a signal for a further downtrend to come, some have said that it may have marked the bottom for the asset.

In his tweet, the Bloomberg analyst points to the early days of adoption in contrast with the diminishing supply of bitcoin may prevail. This argument is by no means a new one. The limited supply of BTC has long been one of its pulls for investors who believe that in the end, the scarcity of the cryptocurrency will be what drives its price higher. Mainly, McGlone suggests that BTC is approaching “too cold” levels, and as such, $20,000 may well be the new $5,000.

What this implies is that the bottom of the current downtrend may be in. Looking at the previous bear market, it is obvious that the bottom was clocked right when the price had fallen below $6,000 in the early days of 2022. If so, then there is no further decline for the digital asset from this point.

But Is The Bottom In?

Just as one historical movement can tell one story of the bitcoin bottom, so do the others. Now, it is known that the last bear market saw the price of bitcoin declined more than 80% from its all-time high. This trend has been closely followed through the bear markets. Despite the brutal crash in the last couple of days, bitcoin is still less than 70% down from its November all-time high. Given this, there may be more decline to come if it was to follow this trend.

However, there is another trend that lends credence to McGlone’s prediction. This is the fact that no matter the decline, the price of the digital asset has never fallen below the previous cycle peak. Given that bitcoin’s last peak was a little under $20,000, the bottom may indeed be in if this trend is held.

One thing to note though is that the present market has been deviating from previously established trends. It had begun with the multiple bull rallies of 2021 and now has carried into the bearish market of 2022. So, maybe there will be more breaking of historical trends to come.

From a technical analysis perspective, FLOW is a better bet short term

Key points:

  • The overall cryptocurrency market is bearish, but in the short term, some coins have good prospects.

  • FLOW is one of the cryptocurrencies that currently have strong buying volumes and are promising in the short term.

  • Cardano is bearish short-term but has the fundamentals to gain long-term value.

The cryptocurrency market is bearish at the moment, so everything is in the red. While buying any top crypto today has significant odds of long growth term, it’s not the case in the short term.

 More short term, some cryptos can do better than others depending on money flow and short-term news. Technical analysis is one way to tell which crypto can do better than the rest short term.

In this context, between Cardano and Flow, Flow is a much better trade in the short term.

Flow (FLOW) Chart analysis

In the past 72 hours, Flow FLOW/USD buying volumes have risen. On 26th June 2022, FLOW dropped slightly before making a double bottom and rallying again. This indicates that bullish momentum is on the rise, and it could keep rallying going into the future. If FLOW can push through resistance at $1.75, it could easily test $2 or more in the short to medium term.

Cardano (ADA) price analysis

Cardano ADA/USD has been bearish for more than 72 hours. In the last 24 hours alone, Cardano has been making lower lows, an indicator that sellers have crashed every attempt by bulls to retake the market. 

When writing this article, Cardano bulls attempted to retake control, but volumes were low. If bulls can push Cardano through the day’s high of $0.489, it could break out of the current bearish trend in the short term.

However, with buying volumes low and the broader market overall bearish, the odds seem low for Cardano to pull off such a move in the very short term. Besides, no major news is coming up anytime in the next couple of weeks.

Conclusion

FLOW holds much more promise in the short term than Cardano. The charts show strong buying momentum, while Cardano is stuck in a bear trend with low buying volumes.

That said, the two cryptocurrencies have a lot of promise in the long run – the fundamentals are in their favor. Cardano is one of the most promising platform blockchains in the market today, thanks to its mix of security, decentralization, and scalability. The recent launch of Cardano smart contracts has added to its intrinsic value, and as adoption grows, Cardano’s price is likely to go up as well. 

On its part, FLOW is one of the fastest-growing smart contracts cryptocurrencies in the market today. Today, FLOW has a wide ecosystem of Web 3.0 projects building on top of it, and the numbers will only rise over time. The same will reflect in the price of FLOW over the years.
