Already enthusiastic on Bitcoin price and other cryptos, venture capitalists predict the alpha coin will reach $500,000 in 2024.
One of them is the CEO of Galaxy Digital Holdings, Mike Novogratz, who believes that before Bitcoin reaches the coveted half-million dollar mark, it will first recapture or surpass the $30,000 level by the end of March this year.
Bitcoin climbed to its highest level since August on Wednesday, advancing for a second day as a reduction in risk aversion helps to alleviate anxieties about an intensifying regulatory campaign by U.S. authorities.
Bitcoin Price Approaches $25K
At the time of writing Thursday, Bitcoin was trading at $24,606, up 7.2% in the last seven days, data by Coingecko shows.
Novogratz’s most recent Bitcoin price forecast is a far cry from the $500,000 he originally forecasted for the crypto asset, but is still nearly a quarter higher than its current price.
The Galaxy CEO once predicted that Bitcoin price would reach that level by the end of 2024 if the US Federal Reserve kept raising interest rates.
“When I look at the price action, when I look at the excitement of the customers calling, the FOMO building up, it wouldn’t surprise me if we were at $30,000 by the end of the quarter,” Novogratz said.

Crypto In The Greed Zone
In response to the increasing regulatory inspection by the US Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulators, bitcoin’s price has fallen from over $24,000 to $21,500 during the past few weeks. Then followed the data from the US Consumer Price Index, after which Bitcoin fell under $21,500.
The market sentiment has strengthened as a result of Bitcoin’s most recent significant movement in the midst of the US’ regulatory battle over cryptocurrencies. Now, the Bitcoin Fear and Greed Index is recording a value of 62, solidly in the Greed zone.
