While the crypto market as such has increased significantly in value, a number of proponents of cryptocurrencies are wondering where the top of the Bitcoin price will be in the next big bull run. For example, before and after the last three bull runs for Bitcoin, different price peaks and significant declines of over 80% were recorded. The voices are also getting louder and louder saying that the next big bull run has already started.
According to Coingecko, the total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies is currently $ 538 billion. This makes it clear that not only is the Bitcoin price approaching the level of the end of 2017, but the entire crypto market is growing and thriving.
Market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies
But while the market capitalization of around 300 billion dollars is still a long way from its all-time high (ATH), Bitcoin is on the verge of cracking its personal ATH. At the time of writing, the Bitcoin price is already within reach at just under $ 19,300. There is hardly anyone on the market who doubts that the price per BTC will soon be trading at unprecedented levels.
The only question most people are currently asking is what the new ATH is and where it might be. If the Bitcoin price follows old patterns, it could be around $ 160,000, according to an influencer and analyst. Let’s take a closer look at why this is so.
Bitcoin course history during its bull runs
In a recent interview, Mike McGlone, Senior Commodity Strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, spoke about maintaining the current level of Bitcoin. During the report , McGlone said there was a possibility within the next 1-2 years that BTC could add another zero to the end of its price tag.
A large number of Bitcoiners also believe that the Bitcoin price could reach $ 100,000 or more. Of course, especially at times like these, discussions about the possible price range are the order of the day on Twitter and Reddit forums. What was particularly interesting, however, was what the Youtuber Colin Talks Crypto tweeted about the patterns of the Bitcoin course during previous bull runs.
Bitcoin course during the Bull Runs
The chart Colin shared shows that BTC had seen three previous bullish price periods in 2011, 2013, and of course 2017. In 2011, the Bitcoin price soared to $ 31 per BTC for the first time and then lost 94% of its value again.
As a result of the economic fiasco in Cyprus and the heyday of bartering on the legendary Mount Gox scandal, the Bitcoin price rose 37 times from its previous high of $ 1,153, according to Colin’s chart. The loyal bear market again resulted in a loss in value of 85% in the two years 2014 and 2015.
In 2017, the Bitcoin price experienced its biggest rise to date, reaching $ 20,078 per BTC on some global exchanges on December 17th. A high that is currently only around $ 700 away from our current price level. A long-lasting correction of 84% followed in the usual gear.
