The CEO of a prominent digital asset firm recently expressed unprecedented optimism regarding Bitcoin's future, stating that he is "more bullish now than I've ever been." This statement raises the question: could Bitcoin potentially reach $100,000 within the year? 

In this update, we'll explore the factors that may contribute to such a price surge and discuss the implications for the cryptocurrency market as a whole.

Scaramucci Remains Bullish on Bitcoin Despite Challenges

Despite facing criticism and challenges related to his interest in the crypto market, SkyBridge CEO Anthony Scaramucci remains enthusiastic about Bitcoin. In a recent interview, he emphasized that he's not a blind evangelist but is more bullish on the cryptocurrency than ever before.


Scaramucci has faced strong headwinds, such as FTX filing for bankruptcy in November and the personal and professional ties he developed with Sam Bankman-Fried. They collaborated on several ventures, including the Crypto Bahamas conference and FTX's $40 million investment in SkyBridge. 

Despite these challenges, Scaramucci now focuses on Bitcoin's next growth cycle and hopes regulators can adapt. He believes that Bitcoin started gaining wider interest from late 2021 through the end of 2022.

The impact of Scaramucci's bullish stance and the wider interest in Bitcoin could potentially lead to an increase in its price. As more investors and institutions recognize the value and potential of the cryptocurrency, demand may rise, driving up the price. 

However, it is important to note that the crypto market remains highly volatile, and various factors, such as regulatory developments and global economic conditions, can also influence Bitcoin's value.

Bitcoin Price

Bitcoin had been trading sideways, fluctuating within a narrow range between $30,200 and $30,500. However, it broke this range during the US session and is now trading below the $29,700 level, which has turned from support to resistance.

On the downside, a bearish breakout below the $29,700 level could further lower the BTC price, potentially reaching $29,189.

Conversely, if there is a bullish crossover above the $29,750 level, the BTC price could potentially target the next resistance level of $30,700 or $31,000.
