JP Morgan Affirms Bitcoin a Preferred Alternative Asset, Places BTC Fair Price at $38K
JP Morgan indicates that Terra’s collapse did not seem to affect the venture capital market. The banking giant has placed Bitcoin’s (BTC) fair price at $38,000. This is 28% higher than its current market value of around $29,500. According to the bank: “The past month’s crypto market correction looks more like capitulation relative to last January/February and going forward we see upside for Bitcoin and crypto markets more generally”.
The bank strategist Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou was the lead author of that document. The document continues to read: “Thus far, there is little evidence of VC [venture capital] funding drying up post-Terra’s collapse. Of the $25 billion VC funding year-to-date, almost $4 billion came after Terra. Our best guess is the VC funding will continue and a long winter similar to 2018/2019 would be averted.”Meanwhile, JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon has expressed his antipathy toward cryptocurrency. Though, Dimon has praised crypto for its cross-border payment facility.
