Binance Co-Founder and CEO “CZ” noted that people criticizing Bitcoin for not being a good store of value seem to have become pretty quiet in the past week:

I didn’t see “… but #bitcoin is not a store of value…” narrative in the past week. 🤷‍♂️

Bitcoin’s impressive rally led Gemini Co-Founder and CEO Tyler Winklevoss to ask if we could see the $BTC price get as high as $30K by the end of this weekend:

Messari Co-Founder and CEO Ryan Selkis believes that Bitcoin could reach $100K in the next 12 months:

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.
