In July 2018, Lasry—who claimed he had one percent of his net worth in Bitcoin—accurately predicted that the coin would reach $40,000 if it were to become more mainstream. Back then, it was trading at $7,400.
Bitcoin touched $40,000 for the first time on Jan. 7. On April 14, it soared to its current all-time high of $64,895 before retracing all the way back to $30,000.
Bitcoin at a crossroads
Following Bitcoin’s massive correction, Lasry is not sure about where Bitcoin is heading next.
The co-owner of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks claims that Bitcoin could surge to $100,000 or plunge back to $20,000
I honestly don’t know where it’s gonna go, but you’ve got that market. It’s there.
As reported by Bigwig FX Bitcoin revisited the $32,000 level earlier today, with gold bug Peter Schiff forecasting a further slide.
