He joined Fidelity 27 years ago as a technical research analyst.
He explained why bitcoin is cheap. “I’m using the price per million non-zero addresses as an estimate of bitcoin’s valuation, and the chart below shows the valuation is fully back to 2013 levels, although the price hasn’t come back than at 2020 levels,” he explained, emphasizing:
In other words, bitcoin is cheap.
“At its recent low of $17,600, bitcoin is now below even my more conservative S-curve model, which is based on the internet adoption curve,” the Fidelity director added.
Mr. Timmer noted that by observing the growth of the Bitcoin network, it is clear that “the adoption curve follows the more asymptotic curve of Internet adoption, rather than the more exponential curve of mobile phones”. He continues: “According to Metcalfe’s law, slower network growth suggests more modest price appreciation. »
However, “based on a simple power regression line, Bitcoin’s network appears to be intact,” the director opined. “This continued growth of the bitcoin network, combined with falling prices, means the valuation of bitcoin is falling. »
The director of Fidelity’s Global Macro department then shared his predictions for the price of ether, tweeting:
If bitcoin is cheap, then maybe ethereum is cheaper. If ETH is where BTC was four years ago, then the analogy below suggests that Ethereum may be close to bottoming.
At the time of writing, bitcoin is trading at $21,584, up 11% over the past seven days but down 29% over the past 30 days. Ether is trading at $1,217, up 14% in the last seven days but down 32% in the last 30 days.
