New data indicates that Bitcoin may see the peak of the BTC price “double bubble” in 2021

Bitcoin (Bitcoin) Facing a “double bubble”, there will be two price tops this year, the latest data shows.

in a tweet On August 18th, Charles Edwards, the CEO of the investment company Capriole, emphasized that there is a key similarity between 2021 and the 2013 double top bull market cycle.

Bitcoin has different opinions The bull market in 2021 is more like 2013 or 2017—the other two years followed the block subsidy halving event.

Looking at an indicator, unrealized gains and losses (UP&L), the answer may be simple. According to Edwards, only the profitability of coins in 2013 produced similar results.

“New evidence of a double bubble in Bitcoin,” he concluded.

“At the top of the previous cycle, the rebound could never keep the unrealized profit and loss above 0.5. Only the double bubble in 2013 and today achieved this.”

This view is further adapted to the popular stock-to-flow price model, which requires the average reading of BTC/USD this year to be $100,000 or more. Its creator, PlanB, had previously given a minimum of $135,000 at the end of the year as the “worst-case scenario” for Bitcoin.
