The price of Bitcoin will skyrocket up to $100,000 in the coming year, according to the founder of infamous darknet marketplace Silk Road. In a series of blog posts on Dec. 10, Ross Ulbricht - the founder of now-defunct anonymous marketplace Silk Road - predicted that BTC's price will reach $100,000 in 2020.
Ulbricht claimed the possibility to carry out such an analysis even without knowing Bitcoin day-to-day price movements and the general condition of the market. Bitcoin price could be artificially increased by investor expectations combined with mass psychology and through a positive feedback loop of buyer optimism. Sources told Cointelegraph that Andy Cheung, head of operations at cryptocurrency exchange OKEx, sees Bitcoin surging above $14,000 in 2020.
According to Cheung, a Bitcoin ETF listing in the United States could be a catalyst for the price increase. The mastermind behind the Silk Road. "Operating under the pseudonym ''Dread Pirate Roberts," Ulbricht was the mastermind behind the Silk Road, which let users buy and sell anything, regardless of legality.
The Silk Road pioneered the use of Tor, the network software used to access the darknet, and Bitcoin escrow to conceal purchaser and seller identities and their activity.
