Bitcoin To Reach A Price Of $100000 In 2021

Copenhagen – April 7, 2021 – Bitcoin currently has 5/4 odds (44.4% implied probability) to reach a price of $100000 in 2021, according to betting aggregators US-Bookies.com (See Disclaimer Below). The odds of Bitcoin reaching $200,000 are 16/1 (5.9%), suggesting that $100000 is a far more likely scenario.

Hedge Fund Launches Jump Despite Equity Market Declines

Last year was a bumper year for hedge fund launches. According to a Hedge Fund Research report released towards the end of March, 614 new funds hit the market in 2021. That was the highest number of launches since 2017, when a record 735 new hedge funds were rolled out to investors. What’s interesting about Read More

“Following Bitcoin's post-dip rally last week, the odds suggest the magic figure of $100,000 could again be within reach this year,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “In fact, bookies are slightly more confident in it reaching that mark than they were at the end of March, as they shortened the odds from 6/4 to 5/4 since then.”

Given the cryptocurrency’s volatility, bookies are also eyeing the chance Bitcoin’s price drops. It currently has 4/1 odds (20% implied probability) to fall to $10,000, and 250/1 odds (0.4%) to drop to $1,000. However, it also has 66/1 odds (1.5%) to reach $1 million, so it’s more likely to eclipse the million mark than it is to drop to $1,000.

Oddsmakers Are Also Watching Dogecoin Closely

Dogecoin is another cryptocurrency oddsmakers are watching closely. However, they are less confident in it than they are in Bitcoin, giving Dogecoin 33/1 odds (2.9% implied probability) to be worth more than $1 at the end of 2021. Its 16/1 odds (5.9%) to be worth less than 1 cent suggest a more likely scenario.

“With Dogecoin's rally having looked short lived, the betting now suggests it's more likely to slump back to a cent or lower than hit a dollar or more by the end of the year,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “In terms of what comes next for the meme-inspired crypto, don't rule out Elon Musk announcing it as Tesla's latest accepted form of payment.

Oddsmakers are currently placing 10/1 odds (9.1% implied probability) on Elon Musk allowing Teslas to be purchased with Dogecoin this year.

Odds that Bitcoin Reaches the Following Prices in 2021:

$100,000: 5/4

$200,000: 16/1

$1,000,000: 66/1

Fall to $10,000: 4/1

To be worth less than 1¢ at end of 2021: 16/1

To be worth more than Bitcoin at any point this year: 1000/1

Elon Musk to allow Tesla to be bought with Dogecoin this year: 10/1
