StanChart Forecasts BTC to Hit $150K by Year-End, Eyes $250K High by 2025

March 22, 2024

In the wake of Bitcoin’s latest all-time high, Standard Chartered has significantly updated its financial forecasts, indicating a stronger bullish outlook for the leading crypto.

The bank now predicts a striking 50% increase from its previous forecast, anticipating that Bitcoin (BTC) will reach a monumental $150,000 by the end of 2024. This revised projection marks a substantial uplift from last year’s estimate, which pegged Bitcoin at a $100,000 value by year-end.

The optimism doesn’t stop there. StanChart sees Bitcoin’s value soaring to $200,000 by 2025, especially if Spot Bitcoin ETF inflows maintain their steady momentum. This projection is underpinned by what Standard Chartered describes as “sharper-than-expected price gains” over the current year, coupled with the anticipation of the upcoming Bitcoin Halving event on the cryptocurrency’s valuation.

The bank’s analysis draws a compelling parallel between the trajectory of Bitcoin’s price and the historical movement of gold prices following the introduction of gold exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the U.S.

Moreover, Stand Chart extends its optimistic forecasts, hinting at a potential surge in Ether prices. The bank suggests that Ether could ascend to $8,000 by the end of the year, contingent upon the approval of ETH ETFs in the U.S.

Standard Chartered’s ambitious forecasts underscore a growing confidence in the crypto market’s potential, highlighting the significant impact of ETF inflows and regulatory milestones on the future of valuations.
