  • PlanB S2F model shows that Bitcoin will hit $100,000 by August 16 2021.

Bitcoin to hit $100,000 by August 2021 – PlanB S2F model

PlanB, a pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst, is popular for the stock-to-flow (S2F) model. The latest from the analyst shows that Bitcoin will hit $100,000 by August 16, 2021. The model divides the amount of Bitcoin currently in circulation by the amount of Bitcoin mined per annum. PlanB recently retweeted a post published by Marc van der Chijs, a Dutch entrepreneur.

Most people think this is impossible, but I have seen a 1,000% increase in less than a year at least twice before in BTC (2013 & 2017). S2F is holding up pretty well after the halving, if FOMO will start again, anything is possible.
