Mike Novogratz said he expects the price of bitcoin to reach $12,000 in 2020 as soon as the market recovers from its current price slump.
Novogratz, who is co-founder of the cryptocurrency financial firm Galaxy Digital, published a series of 2020 predictions to Twitter on December 28th, 2019.
According to Novogratz, in addition to Donald Trump losing the US election by “more than 10 million votes,” bitcoin will finish the year trading above $12,000. Mike also expects the U.S. wrestling team to take gold in the Tokyo Olympics and Tom Hanks to win an Oscar for his role as Mr. Rogers.
He tweeted: “2020 prediction #1. @realDonaldTrump loses by more than 10mm votes. #2 $btc finishes over 12k. #3. @USAWrestling wins 3 golds in Tokyo (MF). #4 @tomhanks wins the Oscar for Mr Rodgers. #5 @reform and it’s partners help shrink the ‘supervised’ population from 4.5mm to 4mm or”
The majority of replies to the tweet centered around Novogratz’s assertion that the current U.S. president will lose his bid for re-election in November 2020.
However, Wenmoon a twitter user went as far as betting 1 ETH that Trump would be re-elected, telling Novogratz that his prediction was “out of touch.”
Novogratz accepted the bet thus: “Done”
