Research Firm Predicts Bitcoin Will Hit $200K in Second Half of 2022, ETH to Reach $12K

This week in a note to investors, Fsinsight, a Fundstrat company, said bitcoin could reach $200,000 during the second half of the year. In the investor’s note, Fsinsight’s head of digital asset strategy, Sean Farrell, said the parabolic growth would be due to “legacy market capital entering the fold.”

Fsinsight: ‘Bitcoin to Tap $200K in H2 2022, Ethereum Will Jump Close to 400%’

While last year’s $100K predictions went silent during the last month of 2021, bitcoin (BTC) price predictions are starting to appear again this year. According to the Fundstrat firm Fsinsight, BTC could increase by almost 500% from the current price point to around $200K per unit.

The BTC price prediction stems from Fsinsight and the firm’s head of digital asset strategy, Sean Farrell. Both Fsinsight and Fundstrat are bullish about the upside potential of crypto assets as Fundstrat Global Advisors’ head of research recently insisted bitcoin still has “exponential growth ahead” of it.

Fsinsight’s and Farrell’s investor’s note says times are different now that major businesses and “legacy market capital [is] entering the fold.” “This is much different from 2018 where tech stocks were still doing well but bitcoin sold off along with the rest of the crypto market cap,” Farrell explained. All eyes will be on the Federal Reserve meeting in March, where Fed chair Jerome Powell hinted at raising benchmark rates.

Fsinsight’s prediction notes that U.S. policymakers could bring some downside to the leading crypto asset’s price growth. “All assets can sell off and drop another 50% if the Fed hikes 4% tomorrow or next month,” Farrell remarked in the note. As things stand now, both the upsides to bitcoin and [ethereum] are greater than the downside .”

Meanwhile, digital currency values have increased during the last week as bitcoin (BTC) has climbed over 12% and ethereum (ETH) jumped more than 13% over the last seven days. Fsinsight’s prediction also notes that ethereum has the potential to swell in USD value during the last half of 2022. Fsinsight’s investor’s note predicts ETH could climb close to 400% to around $12K per unit.

BTC slips amid poor debut for Hong Kong spot ETFs

  • Bitcoin fell to under $62,000 after spiking past $64,700 earlier as Hong Kong spot Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs began trading.
  • Data showed trading volumes hit just over $11 million, against expectations of over $3oo million.

Bitcoin price fell below $62,000 again amid market reaction to less than encouraging numbers from the first day of trading for much hyped spot Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs in Hong Kong.

BTC was down about 1.4% at the time of writing, having touched lows of $61,587 across major crypto exchanges.

The benchmark cryptocurrency, which has struggled to reclaim key levels since its recent halving event, was seeing a 24-hour trading volume of $28.4 billion.

Bitcoin price and Hong Kong spot ETFs debut

Earlier, Bitcoin price surged to above $64,000 as the six spot Bitcoin and spot Ethereum ETFs went live in Hong Kong.

The flagship cryptocurrency rose to over $64,727 on US-based crypto exchange Coinbase. BTC also soared after reports Hong Kong approved the listing of the ETFs.

However, as data streamed in showing disappointing trading volumes and inflows, Bitcoin price took a hit. According to details of the six ETFs’s debut day, total trading volume reached just $11 million, not impressive given projections were much higher at over $300 million.

Bitcoin ETFs saw about $8.5 million while Ethereum ETFs recorded just $2.5 million on the first day. Ethereum price fell to $3,040.

Notably, the figures from Hong Kong are way lower compared to those recorded amid the enthusiasm that greeted the launch of spot Bitcoin ETFs in the US in January. On their debut, the US spot BTC ETFs raked in over $4.6 billion in trading volume.

The start to trading for the ETFs has not helped BTC price and BTC could face a slide under the $60k level if sentiment flips negative. On the upside, resistance at $65k remains critical and a breakout could see the bellwether digital asset soar towards its recent peak.
