JPMorgan lowers BTC fair valuation from $150,000 to $38,000

JPMorgan analysts believe that the high volatility of the asset is hindering the adoption of the main crypto-coin by institutional investors. Thus, experts explained the decrease in the fair value of BTC from $150,000 to $38,000.

“Our previous forecast that the bitcoin to gold volatility ratio would drop two times by the end of 2022 seems unrealistic. We lower the fair value of the first cryptocurrency based on this proportion to 1/4 of $150,000, or $38,000,” the report says.

A year ago, investment bank analysts stated that the theoretical long-term goal for the value of the first crypto coin would be $146,000. JPMorgan announced the convergence of BTC volatility with gold volatility. Experts also assured that the generation of millennials will be the driver for the adoption of the main digital asset.

JPMorgan now believes that “open interest in futures and the volume of exchange balance sheets indicate less panic or liquidation of positions than in May last year, especially in relation to large crypto investors.”

Q9 Capital Managing Partner James Quinn spoke about a significant influx of clients to the crypto platform. He attributes this to the desire of investors to acquire digital currency at a low cost.

According to him, “some people actually see this as an opportunity to buy bitcoin at a lower price than a few months ago.” Quinn believes that the market drop may be due to the increasing correlation of the BTC rate with traditional assets.

“As more people come out of traditional finance into this space, more new investors are coming in. Over time, they will own both digital assets and all types of traditional assets,” said the crypto enthusiast.
