More than half of the respondents said that Bitcoin is more likely to drop to the $18k range over the next year. This is contrary to what industry experts like Dan Tapiero of 10T Holdings and Nikolas Panigirtzoglou of JPMorgan (NYSE:) are saying. Tapiero, for instance, gave a prediction of $100k by the third quarter of this year.

According to the survey, 25% of the respondents believe that Bitcoin could double. On the other side of their predictions is Biden’s upcoming stimulus package. Reckless money printing is helping sell the Bitcoin narrative.
