In 5 years Bitcoin could trade for $250K - Morgan Creek CEO

05/16/2021

Morgan Creek Capital Management founder and CEO Mark Yusko predicts that Bitcoin’s next market cycle could see it trade for more than $200,000 to challenge gold as an asset by market capitalization.

Yusko’s price prediction is based on his assumption that Bitcoin will rival gold by “monetary value” — a concept derived from the gold standard, where a country's currency or fiat has a value directly linked to gold.

He stated: “If gold’s monetary value is $4 trillion, then digital gold should move up to that total.” Yusko further compared the rapid adoption of Bitcoin (BTC) to the growth of Social and Media Giants — Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google.

“This is a network, and networks grow in an exponential way. This is the fastest network in history to a trillion dollars of value, right on the heels of the FAANGs (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google) that took, you know, 15 to 20 years depending on which one you look at.”

The investment manager predicted Bitcoin will become the base-layer protocol for the Internet of Value, likening Bitcoin to Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, or TCP/IP — the standard protocol allowing computers to connect and share data across the internet.

When asked about other protocols or crypto assets such as Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Dogecoin (DOGE) — which have all reached all-time highs over the past couple of days — he stated there is room for more. However, not a fan of DOGE, Yusko added:

“There are thousands of coins, and DOGE is in that category that really are useless. They’re just utility tokens that have no underlying value or use case, and they’ll eventually disappear.”

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was trading 1.7% higher on the day at $59,200, Ether was at an all-time high above $4,000, but DOGE had crashed after tagging new record highs, following a mention from Elon Musk on Saturday Night Live.
