The prices for the biggest cryptocurrencies point up.

Many people are wondering where the bitcoin price is heading next. Like always, it’s hard to say if it’s going up or down. One thing, however, that we can say for sure is that there are experts that think differently about whether the price will go up or down.

The crypto expert Tom Lee from the investment research firm Fundstrat is still positive about bitcoin. He believes that there is more bitcoin trading in the U.S. today than before and that this has meant that more hedge funds have become interested. In addition, many new, young analysts who are hired by the funds are interested in cryptocurrencies.

“I do think in 2018, trading has shifted. I do think hedge funds are playing a role right now”, Tom Lee said earlier to CNBC.

He still believes that the bitcoin price can reach over $20,000 before the end of the year.

On the other hand, Anthony Pompliano, founder and partner at the investment advisory firm Morgan Creek Digital Assets, believes that the bitcoin price may fall to $3,000.

He also believes that bitcoin will not reach a new price record until the middle of 2023. That is 2,000 days after the previous record.

“Parabolic increases in price continue to take longer – each parabolic run is measured from the last all-time high to the new all-time high. The first rapid price appreciation took just over 300 days (2010-2011) and the second took over 900 days (2011-2013). The last parabolic price increase peaked at ~$20,000 (2013-2017) and took almost 1,500 days to complete”, Anthony Pompliano writes in a post, according to CCN.
