The NYSE Bitcoin Index (.NYXBT) Target Slashed
Back in January, comparison site finder.com.au’s cryptocurrency experts had Bitcoin pegged for a value of $43,370 on average by December 31.
At the time, BTC was riding highs of around $18,000. But even in March, when Bitcoin was valued at half that, the panel was confident it could still hold out for $38,000 by the end of 2018.
This month, with Bitcoin still nudging $9,000, the outlook isn’t so rosy from the finder.com.au team. They’re now tipping it can reach $18,883 by December 31 — still a hefty increase on today’s price, but certainly a lot wobblier outlook than at any other time this year.
