I don’t really know it, and I’m sure no-one knows it, but chances are that it can be worth $1 trillion. But I’ll explain it at the end of this post.
Now, imagine that you are Nokia in 2000 and produce this:
…also, there is no other competitor that can compare to you in terms of market share, product quality, demand, feedback, etc. In other words, you are the greatest company in the world in your specific niche. Now, you reach this point:
So, considering the fact that your share price costs over $50, how do you think: How much would one Nokia share be worth in 2010? – $100? $200? $500?
None of that – check here:
It was under $13 per share. Today, it is less than $6 I guess.
How comes that? Would people at that time spend $50 for a stock that the very next year would fall under $15? No! So why were they ready to spend $50 per stock anyway?
Because they didn’t know what was coming.
No one knows the future, so making a confident prediction of this kind is not that smart. Well, making a prediction is smart, but a confident one – saying that you know X or Y for sure – doesn’t inspire common sense at all.
However, if you still want a prediction, check this:
In 2026/2027, Bitcoin price can be in these ranges:
- $0–10 – because maybe a completely new and game-changing cryptocurrency takes the leading position. Its blockchain makes the one behind Bitcoin look outdated, while big institutions make the move to the new system. Bitcoin still costs a few dollars because some people are nostalgic and keep it. Maybe a new global currency is officially implemented by the UN or by a new global government.
- $10-$100 – the same reason + a bit inflation in US dollar.
- $100-$1000 – Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency of choice, but loses dominance against Ethereum or some other coin. It’s still in the top 10 or 20.
- $1000 – $10,000 – Bitcoin is doing OK along with other blockchain-based ecosystems.
- $10,000 – $1000,000 – Bitcoin is the leading coin that is regarded as a safe-haven against vulnerable fiat money.
…oh, and it can be this way:
- $1 trillion+
Don’t believe that Bitcoin has this potential to reach $1 trillion? Well, if Bitcoin can’t, then the US dollar can. Hyperinflation is very possible in theory, because the USD is a world reserve currency, and if it loses demand (OPEC selling oil for other currencies – just one example), then people would surely lose confidence and it would devalue.
Hyperinflation already happened in Zimbabwe for example (because of war spending). How about this kind of money?
I am not exaggerating, check this:
According to renowned economist Marc Faber, hyperinflation in the U.S. is a certainty within the next 10 years. Mr. Faber has correctly predicted some of the most important financial events in the modern era including, the stock market crash of 1987; the rise of oil, precious metals and other assets in the 2000’s; and on Fox News in February 2007, he said a U.S. stock market correction was imminent.
So – everything is possible.
