Anthony Scaramucci, Founder and CEO of SkyBridge Capital, told Cointelegraph Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) could hit $ 100,000 by the end of this year. Back in May when Bitcoin plunged 46% in the next eight days Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) Decision to stop accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment, CEO of ARK Invest Cathie Wood said she expected bitcoin to eventually hit $ 500,000.
If a merchant bought $ 1,000 worth of bitcoin when Wood did on the 19th but if bitcoin hits $ 100,000 by the end of 2021, the merchant could convert the original $ 1,000 into $ 3,333.
On Thursday, Bitcoin broke the major psychological resistance level of $ 50,000 but ran into a group of sellers and fell back below the mark. Bullish traders and investors will want Bitcoin to regain levels in the near future if Bitcoin is to find its way to a new all-time high.

The Bitcoin Chart: After gaining 12% on August 19-20, Bitcoin hit $ 50,505 and then fell into a period of consolidation. As it consolidated, Bitcoin settled in a bullish falling channel pattern on the daily chart and on Wednesday the crypto broke out of the bullish pattern.
Bitcoin hit a high of $ 50.392 on the break but was immediately sold out. Since Bitcoin also hit the approximate level on Aug 23, but couldn’t top it, the crypto will have to hit the $ 50,000 level in the short term to negate a potential double-top bearish pattern.
By noon, Bitcoin had exceeded its average 10-day trading volume. When a crypto or stock is high in volume, it indicates high interest. In the case of cryptocurrencies, this can often lead to above-average volatility.
Bitcoin trades above the eight- and 21-day exponential moving averages (EMAs), with the eight-day EMA trading above the 21-day trend, both bullish indicators. Bitcoin tested and held out the eight-day EMA as support on Wednesday. The crypto is trading above the 200-day Simple Moving Average (SMA), which suggests that overall sentiment is bullish.
- Bulls want Bitcoin to climb back above the $ 50,000 mark on sustained bullish volume and if the upward move continues, the coin will be propelled back to a higher resistance level at $ 52,666. If crypto can regain levels in support, it could soar towards the $ 55,400 mark.
- Bears want Bitcoin to continue rejecting $ 50,000 and have a large bearish volume come in and let the crypto fall back into the falling channel pattern. If Bitcoin loses the upper descending trendline as support, it could trade within the channel until it loses the support at $ 46,718, which is in line with the 200-day SMA.
