JPMorgan said that according to a survey, majority of its clients expect bitcoin to trade at $60,000 or more by the end of this year.
- The Wall Street giant said in a note published last week that 55% of the clients surveyed see bitcoin reaching the $60,000 barrier.
- According to the survey, 41% of the bank’s clients see bitcoin trading at $60,000 at year-end, 9% see it crossing $80,000, and 5% see it trading above $100,000.
- On the other hand, 20% think it would trade around $40,000, 23% expect the digital currency to be trading at $20,000, while only 2% of the bank’s clients were of the view that the bitcoin would trade at $10,000 or less by the end of 2022.
