Bitcoin is gold 2.0, will soar to $500,000: Winklevoss twins
Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss told CNBC that bitcoin will skyrocket to $500,000 within the next decade as it surpasses gold as a store of value.
The cofounders of Gemini appeared on CNBC shortly before bitcoin jumped 8.7% to a record high on Monday. The coin now trades at over $19,000, but the Winklevoss's said bitcoin still has a long way to run.
"Our thesis is that bitcoin is gold 2.0, that it will disrupt gold, and if it does that, it has to have a market cap of 9 trillion, so we think it could price one day at $500,000 of bitcoin," Tyler Winklevoss said. "So at $18,000 bitcoin, it's a hold or at least if you don't have any, it's a buy opportunity because we think there's a 25x from here."
