Bitcoin Price Is in Early Main Bull Phase Circa Q4 2016


11 Aug 2020   #Bitcoin

Q4 2016 is the name of the game under current conditions, Woo says, but institutional investor presence makes this year very different. Bitcoin (BTC) is copying what it did a year before its $20,000 all-time highs, and the new bull market has been here for over a year already.

That was according to popular statistician Willy Woo, who this week shed further light on Bitcoin’s current price gains.

Woo: Bitcoin “early main bull phase” began recently

In a series of tweets on Aug. 10, Woo continued a debate begun by Bitcoin developer Jimmy Song, who himself debated the topic in the latest issue of his Tech Talk blog post series.

“Yes. The bull market really started April 2019,” Woo responded, continuing: “What’s started recently is the early main bull phase, it’s Q4 2016 all over again, but different dynamics and themes at play.”

BTC/USD hit $12,000 twice in recent days, managing to hold support at $11,500 in a long-awaited show of strength that has given many analysts cause for long-term optimism. 

Despite failing to flip $12,000 to support, Bitcoin remains firmly bullish, both sentiment and technical fundamentals-based evidence suggests.

For Woo, the composition of the market formed a major difference in maturity between this year and 2016 — maturity which has historically dictated both price trajectory and volatility.

“One of the themes is the legitimisation of BTC for large institutional funds, and also the easy accessibility to buy crypto for the masses with the likes of square cash, paypal, and not to mention the one I’m working on LVL which is real regulated banking integrated with crypto,” he continued.

Woo said that he expected sovereign wealth funds to adopt Bitcoin during the current bull cycle, and continue during the next.

He concluded: “I think this cycle BTC gets to prove itself as a legit macro asset bucket for traditional investors, while the cycle after this it overtakes gold to be the significant digital SoV for a digital age.”

Macro investor eyes 10x returns this cycle


The prognosis chimes with conclusions made by macro investor Dan Tapeiro, who predicted that Bitcoin would seal dramatic gains of five to 10 times its current value during this bull cycle.

“Tremendous long term Log Chart of #Bitcoin projects up 5–10x on this run,” he tweeted, uploading a five-year price performance and adding: “Just breaking up NOW. Should last a few years as 2.5yr consolidation is fantastic base for catapult up. Break of old highs will have explosive follow through. Time to sit and be patient.”

In May, fellow analyst Positive Crypto argued that Bitcoin had in fact been in an “accumulation” phase for almost 900 days — and that the consolidation would soon be broken, which subsequently happened weeks later.

Meanwhile, a survey by quant analyst PlanB revealed increasing bullish sentiment among investors, with over 50% believing that BTC/USD would trade above $100,000 by December 2021.

Bitcoin’s price action was “perfectly on track” vis-a-vis his stock-to-flow model, he added previously.
