GMI Model Estimates Bitcoin Fair Value At $300K By October 2021

Bitcoin price has held on tightly to support at $30,000, and according to Raoul Pal’s Global Macro Investor Report, the leading cryptocurrency by market cap could 10x from there by October 2021.

GMI’s model uses Metcalfe Value to make the prediction, and currently suggests the cryptocurrency is severally undervalued. Could that lofty target be only nine months away? Here’s what past market cycles say about the estimate.

Raoul Pal’s GMI Report Calls For $300K BTC Before The End of 2021

Raoul Pal has decades of global macro investing experience. He’s regularly been outspoke about Bitcoin and its long term value proposition. The GMI founder was particularly vocal about the cryptocurrency prior to the breakout in Q4 2020.

Valuations have only increased from there, and significantly so. However, according to a recent model from a GMI Report focusing on Metcalfe Value, things are only warming up.

Currently, Bitcoin is tracing significantly below its Metcalfe Value, according to the report. Past instances of Bitcoin bull markets have always risen beyond the Metcalfe Value, but simply catching up in this case would take the cryptocurrency to a $300,000 per BTC by October 2021.

Trajectory Matches Target, But Metcalfe’s Value Could Suggest More Is Possible

The project does indeed line up with predictions from other analysts, firms, and more. Even taking the exact trajectory of the last cycle, and super imposing it over the current cycle would indicate a peak of around $325,000 per BTC.

However, if the Metcalfe Value truly is accurate, and the cryptocurrency is this accurate, $300,000 as the ceiling is an extremely cautious estimate. Again, past instances of the bull market peaks have always risen beyond  the Metcalfe Value according to the GMI Report chart.

Prices around where previous peaks reached beyond the value, would put the price of each Bitcoin somewhere near $1 million apiece.

If that’s the case, buying at any point over the next nine months could be the greatest opportunity of our lifetimes. However, other attempts to assign a fair market value to the crypto asset using Metcalfe’s Law, have much lower estimates.
