Comprehensive Analysis Predicts Bitcoin Price Near $20K This Year, $398K by 2030
The latest Crypto Research Report (CRR) predicts Bitcoin (BTC)‘s price will hit nearly $20K in 2020. BTC’s price is expected to rise to $400k by 2030. Furthermore, researchers predict the prices of several major digital currencies. These include Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), & Litecoin (LTC).
Variables and addressable markets were examined for the research. The reports forecasts prices of major digital currencies — BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH, and XLM.
Also, CRR reports that there are currently over 40 million cryptocurrency users worldwide. This positively correlates to the respective country’s GDP per capita. In essence, it suggests increased cryptocurrency adoption.
Speculation and savings continue to outdo other uses of cryptocurrencies. CRR highlights that there is “evidence that growth in speculative transactions on exchanges is faster than the growth in using cryptocurrencies to buy goods and services”.
Bank of Japan Will Begin Experimenting With a Digital Yen
The Bank of Japan (BoJ) has officially jumped on the bandwagon of experimenting with a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). This comes after China launched its own 3 months ago. BoJ announced on Thursday (02/7/2020) it would experiment with a CBDC. It aims to test the viability of its own cryptocurrency, a Digital Yen. At least from a technological perspective.
It’s a first for BOJ to commence a Proof of Concept procedure with digital yen. However, the bank is yet to reveal a timeline. It is unknown whether BoJ would be able to outdo China. China has already begun testing its CBDC in major cities like Shenzhen, Chengdu, Suzhou and Xiongan.
BoJ encountered potential technical hurdles that could sabotage its plan. These are resilience and universal access. As such, the bank would collaborate with other central banks. BoJ might work with Britain, the eurozone Canada, Sweden, and Switzerland in the testing process.
BoJ concluded that both centralized and decentralized cryptocurrencies have their own pros and cons. Centralized cryptocurrencies are ideal for mass adoption. In contrast, the decentralized option would be suitable should the cryptocurrency be transactions-limited. And where resilience is prioritized.
Australians Can Now Pay for BTC at the Post Office
Australians can now pay for Bitcoin (BTC) at more than 3,500 national post offices. Thanks to a new partnership between Bitcoin.com.au and Australia Post Office.
This new payment option is believed to encourage consumers’ trust in the credibility of BTC. Bitcoin.com.au’s CEO, Holger Arians explains ”For many people, paying for Bitcoin at an Australia Post office feels safer than transferring funds online — particularly for first-time buyers. We’re proud of this partnership and would like to thank Australia for their continued openness to new technologies.”
Data shows that BTC mass adoption is taking off. The number of physical shops selling cryptocurrency is growing. There are more than 8000 bitcoin ATMs worldwide. In Australia, customers have been able to pay for BTC at 1500 retail shops. For example, via Blueshyft payment network, a payment gateway for digital services.
