Analyst Predicts Bullish Future for BTC
Michaël van de Poppe, a prominent crypto strategist, believes Bitcoin (BTC) is set for a 12x rally as it enters a new era of institutional adoption. Van de Poppe, who has a large following on social media, points to the recent approval of Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) as a sign that BTC is now entering an institutional cycle.
Bitcoin ETFs Signal Institutional Cycle
Van de Poppe explains that the launch of Bitcoin ETFs has opened the door for trillion-dollar asset managers like BlackRock and Franklin Templeton to invest in BTC. This, he says, has triggered an “easy bubble” mode for Bitcoin, with billions of dollars flowing into ETFs in the first few weeks alone.
Macroeconomic Factors Boosting Bitcoin
In addition to institutional adoption, Van de Poppe also sees macroeconomic factors as driving Bitcoin’s upward trajectory. He highlights the rising inflation rates in third world countries, which are pushing investors towards Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as a hedge against inflation. Additionally, he mentions the concerns surrounding the US government’s debt levels and the potential failure of the financial system, which are also contributing to Bitcoin’s appeal.
Bitcoin Bubble on the Horizon
Van de Poppe believes that these factors are setting the stage for a “crypto dot-com bubble,” where Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies become widely recognized as the asset class of the future. He predicts that this could lead to a meteoric rally for BTC, with the price potentially reaching $250,000 or even $600,000.
Bull Cycle Could Last Until 2026 or 2027
Van de Poppe expects the bull cycle to peak in Q3/Q4 2025, but he suggests that it could potentially last longer, until 2026 or 2027, if liquidity remains strong. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $49,823, up over 3% in the last 24 hours.
