In a Kitco Information interview, Celsius head Alex Mashinsky says that Bitcoin will surge above $100,000 earlier than the top of 2022 if it could overcome a number of key psychological resistance ranges.
“I believe we’re undoubtedly going to hit all-time highs. All-time highs aren’t that removed from the place we’re, it’s $67,000. And the query we don’t know is what occurs afterward. How a lot resistance we’re going to have at $70,000, $80,000, $90,000. I believe we’re going to break $100,000.”
The Celsius Network CEO, who had beforehand set comparable targets for Bitcoin in 2021, says that macroeconomic components doomed his predictions final 12 months.
“I do know I’ve mentioned that final 12 months. However we had a couple of macroeconomic occasions that principally kicked the can down the street. However we are going to see Bitcoin over a $100,000 this 12 months.”

So when Terra is shopping for Bitcoin or different individuals are shopping for Bitcoin, these are actions within the crypto neighborhood. What you want is recent capital from [traditional finance] coming in and shopping for Bitcoin. That’s what’s going to drive the value increased.”
