• Bitcoin is expected to reach $88K in less than two months, according to a crypto billionaire

  • Su Zhu, co-founder and CEO of Three Arrows Capital, took to Twitter to reveal his incredibly precise Bitcoin price target of $88,888. According to the Credit Suisse trader-turned-crypto-billionaire, the flagship cryptocurrency will be able to reach the aforementioned target in less than two months.

    This comes after another co-founder, Kyle Davies, tweeted that Bitcoin appeared to want to “supercycle” through all-time highs.

    Greed to the extreme

    On August 21, Bitcoin reached a three-month high of $49,830 on the Bitstamp exchange, putting bulls back in control.

    The “Crypto Fear & Greed Index” at Alternative.me is now at 78, having crossed into “extreme greed” territory.

    Nonetheless, the index is still well below its peak of 95 reached in February.

    A long-term goal

    When it comes to long-term price predictions, Zhu stated in a late February interview with UpOnly that Bitcoin reaching $2.5 million would be “definitely possible” in the future if it were to chip away at gold’s market share as the leading store of value:

    So you’re already halfway to $100 trillion, and that will get you to $2.5 million per BTC, which I believe is definitely possible.

    Zhu co-founded Three Arrows Capital with Davies, a former high school classmate, in their apartment in 2012. After initially focusing on emerging markets, the hedge fund shifted its focus to cryptocurrency, making its founders billionaires.

    Three Arrows Capital has made investments in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, and Avalanche, as well as a slew of DeFi protocols (Aave, Balancer, and SushiSwap, among others) and cryptocurrency companies (BlockFi, Deribit among others).

    Davies told Bloomberg in May that Ethereum, the company’s flagship altcoin, is its largest cryptocurrency holding.
