Wildest Bitcoin Predictions From the Last 12 Years

The 12th anniversary of Bitcoin was on October 31st this year and we’ve had a crazy run so far. Price Prediction is a huge part of crypto culture. After Bitcoin hit $20,000 in December 2017, the predictions got crazier. We’ve been looking back at some wild Bitcoin predictions and it would be a crime if we don’t share them with you. Here are some of the wildest Bitcoin predictions we’ve seen in the past 12 years: 

1. John McAfee:  $1,000,000 in 2020

If you’ve ever used McAfee antivirus, then you’re familiar with the name of scandalous tech billionaire, and Bitcoin influencer, John McAfee. In 2018, he predicted that Bitcoin would hit $1,000,000 by December 2020. In fact, he was so confident that he said he was prepared to “eat his penis” on live television if he was wrong. Looks like everyone might be having Penne Pasta this Christmas after all ?. 

2. Jeremy Liew: $500,000 by 2030

Jeremy Liew, famed early Snapchat venture investor, believes that $500,000 is a realistic price for Bitcoin in 2030. We can neither confirm nor deny that we agree with this. But if it happens, then we won’t complain ?. This is one of the Bitcoin predictions we’ll be watching ?

3. Mark Yusko: $400,000 One Day

One day, when the glory comes…


The day this happens, forget it. Imagine taking 1 Bitcoin to the Lambo store and still having change after. Mark Yusko, a billionaire investor and the founder of Morgan Creek Capital believes this could actually happen. He hasn’t put a date but thinks this is where Bitcoin is headed. He also believes that banks will become old news.

4. Anthony Pompliano: $100,000 by December 2021

As a popular Bitcoin personality, Pompliano’s predictions are always taken seriously. But a $100,000 Bitcoin prediction seems wild! For 1 Bitcoin to be worth $100,000, the market cap would have to be about $2 trillion. Anyway, if it happens, we’re ready ?! 

5. Tom Lee: $91,000 by December 2020

Tom Lee is the co-Founder of market strategy firm Fundstrat Global Advisors, and seasoned predictor. To be fair, he predicted that Bitcoin would hit $20,000 in 2017 and it happened. Why so specific with the number though? ? Anyway, we’re not complaining. Even if it’s $99,999, we’ll take it like that. With 2 months left in 2020, maybe Tom knows something we don’t. Please tell us, we won’t tell anyone ?

6. Ran Neuner: $50,000 by 2019

Except Ran Neuner is looking to build a time machine and travel back in time, this prediction didn’t work out. As the host of CNBC’s show Cryptotrader, Neuner’s prediction appeared solid. We trusted him ?. We’ll be the first to celebrate Bitcoin at $50,000, but let’s take it easy with these predictions please ?
