Cryptocurrency exchange Kraken says that Bitcoin could end the year with a massive surge that would more than double BTC’s value from its September closing price.
In a new report, Kraken says that Bitcoin has typically recorded the best annual performance during the last three months of the year (Q4).
“As positive of a quarter as 3Q ended up being for BTC, it ought to be noted that 4Q has historically been BTC’s best quarter with an average and median return of +119% and +58%, respectively.”
Based on the average return recorded over the years, Kraken says Bitcoin could end the year hovering close to $100,000.
“At BTC’s quarter-end closing price of $43,800, a +119% return in 4Q2021 would put BTC at roughly $96,000.”
