Bitcoin Predicted to Reach $100,000 Mark Within Next 12 Months, Says Messari Co-Founder
In a recent tweet, Ryan Selkis, co-founder of on-chain data analytics firm Messari, made some bold predictions about the future of Bitcoin. He claimed that the cryptocurrency would reach the $100,000 mark within the next 12 months and that there would be more bank failures in the coming weeks.
Selkis’s prediction is based on the return of monetary easing by the Federal Reserve, in which interest rates are cut and quantitative easing is resumed. He believes that this will lead to sustained moderate inflation, which will cause Bitcoin to rise in value.
My rough prediction for the next twelve months:
1. More bank failures in the next couple of weeks.
2. Fed cuts / QE is back!
3. BTC climbs, sustained moderate inflation.
4. “Outside Money” / “Sound Money” -> $100k / BTC.
5. Institutions buy faster than Feds can shut down.

According to Selkis, Bitcoin is perceived as healthy money amid the continued devaluation of the dollar. He believes that companies like MicroStrategy will accumulate cryptocurrencies faster than federal regulators can move to shut down assets, such as Bitcoin regulation.
Selkis’s optimistic bet on the future of Bitcoin is that it will change from ‘outside money’ to ‘healthy money’ and reach $100,000. He emphasized that Bitcoin is perceived as a life raft and peaceful exit option in the current economic climate.
However, the key to this prediction is that institutions must be able to buy and defend Bitcoin alongside individual investors. Selkis predicts that institutions will buy Bitcoin faster than federal regulators can shut down assets.
As a recent report by AZCoin News, Balaji Srinivasan, the former CTO of Coinbase, has made a daring prediction that Bitcoin’s value will hit $1 million by June 17th. To demonstrate his confidence in his forecast, he has proposed a $1 million wager. The bet was set in motion on March 17th when a Twitter user known as James Medlock offered to bet anyone $1 million that the United States would not suffer from hyperinflation. Balaji accepted the challenge and tweeted, “I will take that bet. You buy 1 BTC. I will send $1M USD. This is ~40:1 odds as 1 BTC is worth ~$26k. The term is 90 days.”
