A recent survey by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York found that inflation in the US is at its all-time high. McGlone has said that gold will again reach the $2,000 level and bitcoin will act like a high beta version of gold. Earlier McGlone had said that bitcoin would reach close to $1 million by the end of 2021.
However, McGlone’s prediction of bitcoin price crossing $1 million failed miserably. Far from approaching the $1 million mark, bitcoin had started falling since the beginning of the year. By June, the price of bitcoin had dropped to $17,600. Despite this, McGlone maintained confidence in his estimate and he still maintains that bitcoin will touch the $1 million level, although he has also said that it is not going to happen very soon. It may take a long time.
