Michael Saylor, founder of MicroStrategy business intelligence giant, has hinted at a massive surge in the BTC price after the halving takes place. In this case, he turned to how the events developed after the previous halving in 2020.

He also published a celebratory tweet once the halving finally happened.

Saylor points to clear correlation between BTC price and halving

Founder and former CEO of the above-mentioned business giant, who is now in charge of its Bitcoin strategy, took to the X platform to hint that he expects the Bitcoin price to see a tremendous boost after the fourth BTC halving.

He reminded his followers that after the previous halving hit the flagship cryptocurrency in 2020, the BTC price amounted to $8,618. Bitcoin reached a new all-time high of $69,000 in November 2023 and then, quite unexpectedly, skyrocketed to a new historic price peak in March this year before the fourth halving arrived.

$BTC was $8,618 on the day of the last #BitcoinHalving.

As of today, when Bitcoin is changing hands at $61,043, BTC has increased roughly 800% despite all the massive volatility seen over these four years. VC investor and a big Bitcoin proponent Anthony Pompliano told CNBC this week that Bitcoin had surged approximately 40% in 2024 year-to-date.

As for BTC’s physical rival, gold, it has increased 11% over the past five years and just about 7% year-to-date this year. Pompliano concluded that those who have held gold over the past five years have lost purchasing power. Therefore, the status of gold as an asset that protects purchasing power has been basically debunked, Pompliano suggested.

As for Saylor, when the halving finally arrived earlier today, he posted a celebratory tweet, saying: “840,000 ₿locks of Truth.”


Analyst Plan B makes bullish BTC prediction

Prominent market analyst Plan B, who created the Bitcoin stock-to-flow model, has published a tweet to share a bullish prediction for BTC after the halving.

He tweeted that in accordance with his model, which takes BTC halvings into account, during the first half a year before the halving, “insiders frontrun it,” pushing the Bitcoin price 2x. Within the first six months, the analyst tweeted, his stock-to-flow model shows a 2x price increase. Over a longer period, such as 6-18 months after the halving, Bitcoin should surge 4x, he believes.

Happy bitcoin halving! (stock-to-flow doubling): - in the 6 months before the halving, insiders frontrun it: price 2x - in the 6 months after the halving, miner revenue adjusts: price 2x - 6-18m after the halving, the rest of the market rushes to get a piece of the pie: price 4x
