A blog published by the Federal Reserve Bank of St.Louis explains the three likely possibilities of the future of bitcoin. These are

  • indefinite increase in value,
  • zero

or

  • somewhere in between

According to the bank, they believe that bitcoin will be somewhere in between. According to the writers, the major element that is bringing down the price of bitcoin is the increasing supply of altcoins or bitcoin alternatives. The bitcoin market is quite volatile and the demand for bitcoin is the only reason for the price increase and decrease and not the fixed supply. If there were no alternatives to bitcoin or if there were no altcoins then probably all the money currently in the cryptocurrency market would have been invested in bitcoin solely.

According to the economists are the Federal Reserve, if a restaurant sells meals for $10 that is equal to one Hamilton bill ($10) or two Lincoln bills ($5+$5). If the supply of Lincoln bills is increased, that would not change the current scenario of the ratio of 2:1 between the two bills.

 

What’s the real value of bitcoin?

The price of bitcoin and other altcoins is still undiscoverable. According to some analysts, bitcoin price increased massively due to the hype created in 2017 which also increased the price of other bitcoin alternatives or altcoins while others believe that it was just a coincidence. The use case of bitcoin is one of the prominent reasons for the mass adoption and the price increase. Institutional investors are still in their early phases of investing in bitcoin and altcoins. The increase in the institutional interest will thrive the price of bitcoin in the future. With the adoption rising with things like the BAKKT exchange, NASDAQ bitcoin futures and bitcoin ETFs being launched, this would eventually increase the demand for bitcoin and in due course of time, the price of bitcoin is likely to experience a bullish momentum.
