One bitcoin will be worth a Lamborghini by year’s end, and a Bugatti by 2023 – Kraken CEO

The dollar-based long-term price predictions for bitcoin are flawed, according to cryptocurrency exchange Kraken’s CEO Jesse Powell. He proposes measuring bitcoin in luxury car prices, due to the inflationary nature of fiat money.

“I think I said bitcoin is going to infinity and that’s kind-of hard to comprehend, because I’m measuring it in terms of dollars,” Powell told Bloomberg, after being asked about the price prediction for the end of 2021.

He offered alternative measures for valuing bitcoin, claiming that its value may increase from its current ‘price’ or one BTC per Tesla Model 3 to “one bitcoin per Lambo” by the end of the year, and to “one bitcoin per Bugatti” by 2023.

“To the crypto community, I think those kinds of assets are easier to measure bitcoin against, because you never know where the dollar is going to be. There could be 10 times as many US dollars out there a year from now, so it’s really hard to measure bitcoin against the dollar,” Powell explained.
