Bitcoin surge to $100,000 by 2021

According to the Stock-to-Flow (S2F) model by PlanB, a pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst, Bitcoin could soon commence a rally targeting $100,000 by 2021. In his prediction shared on Twitter, the red dot on the chart shows a potential price increase. The S2F model treats BTC as a commodity, just like gold or silver. In this case, the model measures the supply of Bitcoin in relation to the coins mined.

Ethereum price update

As mentioned earlier, Ethereum is among the biggest single-digit gainers. Despite the gains, resistance at $240 is a pain for the bulls. The price has hit an intraday high at $242.46. Gains towards $250 are unlikely in the European session because of the ongoing retreat under $240. At the time of writing, Ether has a market value of $237.37.

Ripple price update

XRP recently lost the third position to Tether (USDT). However, it has corrected above the key $0.20 following a long consolidation above $0.19. On the upside, $0.21 is the immediate resistance. Besides, XRP has reached an intraday high of $0.2061 and adjusted to $0.2044 (market value).
