Research Summary

The report discusses an interview with Macro Analyst Luxon, who predicts Bitcoin’s price could reach $100,000, while the chances of an Ethereum ETF passing are slim. Luxon also discusses the potential impact of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate cuts and the allocation of U.S. institutions to Bitcoin ETFs.

Key Takeaways

Bitcoin’s Price Prediction

  • Bitcoin’s Potential Rise: Luxon predicts that Bitcoin could reach $100,000 in the second half of the year, possibly hitting $70,000 in the first quarter. This prediction is based on the assumption that the American asset management industry will invest 3% in Bitcoin.

Impact of Federal Reserve’s Interest Rate Cuts

  • Rate Cuts Timing: Luxon believes that the Federal Reserve’s interest rate cuts will likely occur in the second half of the year. He suggests that these cuts could stimulate Bitcoin’s price increase.

Allocation to Bitcoin ETFs

  • Institutional Allocation: Luxon suggests that U.S. institutions may allocate around 3% to Bitcoin ETFs. This allocation could drive Bitcoin prices to surpass $70,000 and potentially break through the $100,000 barrier.

Ethereum ETF Approval

  • Low Approval Chances: Luxon believes that the prospects for an Ethereum spot ETF are not very optimistic due to its clear securities attributes and the SEC’s investigation into its Proof of Stake (PoS) mechanism for price manipulation and security risks.

Bitcoin’s Market Performance

  • Bitcoin’s Dominance: Luxon predicts that Bitcoin will continue to outperform in the future market due to its unique market position and acceptance, coupled with the current support from liquidity both inside and outside the crypto market in a high-interest rate environment.
