Former BitMex CEO Arthur Hayes shared an insightful analysis of the future dynamics that would lead to unprecedented bitcoin price growth.

During a recent interview with YouTuber Tom Bilyeu, Hayes shared his bullish outlook on the bitcoin price. He elaborated on multiple factors that contribute to his positive projection. These factors include Bitcoin’s capped supply, the potential introduction of Bitcoin spot ETFs in prominent regulated markets, and geopolitical instability.

Former Bitmex CEO on Bitcoin’s Scarcity

Hayes further underscored the fundamental aspect of Bitcoin’s fixed supply, which is capped at 21 million coins. He firmly believes that this scarcity will act as a catalyst for growing demand as more investors seek to secure a portion of this limited supply.

Hayes envisions a remarkable valuation of $750,000 to $1 million for BTC by 2026. While his $1 million BTC price forecast by 2026 may appear ambitious, his short-term predictions are more conservative. He suggests that bitcoin may remain in the $30,000 range for the current year, with the potential to reach $70,000 by 2024.

Hayes also anticipates that when central banks set nominal interest rates in the 6%-10% range along with government policies, investors will diversify their investment strategies. Bitcoin in particular is poised to benefit significantly from such a shift. He stated:

“As we get to some kind of financial disturbance and people realize that real rates are negative, if governments are growing nominally at 10%, 5%, or 6%, though it’s high, people at the market will start buying other stuff. Crypto is one of those things.”

Optimistic Macroeconomic Landscape

It is important to note that Hayes framed these remarks within an overall optimistic macroeconomic context, predicting a rise in the value of all types of assets. By drawing comparisons, he implies that this significant financial expansion will have a positive impact on other significant asset classes. Hayes also proposes that indicators like the NASDAQ and S&P would achieve record-breaking performances.

“I think it will be the biggest boom in financial markets we have ever seen in human history. Bitcoin will have a ridiculous price, Nasdaq will have a ridiculous price, and S&P will have a ridiculous price. Pick your stock industry.”

On a different note, Hayes recently shared his insights on the broader macroeconomic landscape, specifically focusing on the monetary policy of the US Federal Reserve.

He explained that as long-term bond interest rates rise more rapidly than their short-term counterparts, there’s an increased risk of financial instability. This could potentially lead to a situation where the only viable solution would be extensive money printing to rescue government bond markets. He suggested that this scenario might trigger a domino effect, surging bitcoin and overall financial markets.
