Goldman Sachs: Bitcoin will exceed USD 100,000 as it outperforms gold in storing value
Goldman Sachs analysts predict that Bitcoin has a good chance of reaching USD 100,000 by taking some of gold's market share as a store of value.
Although Bitcoin (BTC) has failed to close 2021 above the long-awaited USD 100,000 level, experts believe that this horizon is still achievable.
In a note issued to investors, Goldman Sachs states that if the largest cryptocurrency outperforms over the next five years 50% share on the value storage market, the BTC price would squeeze past USD 100,000. (1)
