ARK Invest CEO Cathie Wood Predicts Bitcoin to Surpass $1 Million Before 2030

The CEO of ARK Invest, Cathie Wood, has made a bold prediction regarding Bitcoin’s future, suggesting that the cryptocurrency will reach a value of $1 million much sooner than the initially forecasted year of 2030.

In an interview with the New Zealand Herald on March 7, Wood shared her insights, citing “new expectations for institutional involvement” as a key driver behind Bitcoin’s potential price surge.

Wood emphasized that the advent of the United States’ first spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs) has marked a significant transformation for Bitcoin.

Her confidence in Bitcoin’s future has only intensified, spurred by the momentum and interest surrounding these spot ETFs.

This has led ARK Invest to reassess its stance on Bitcoin, shifting its price target ahead of the previously predicted timeline.

According to Wood, the approval of spot ETFs by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was a pivotal milestone that has accelerated the cryptocurrency’s ascent toward the $1 million mark.

Despite the enthusiasm, Wood pointed out that major financial institutions, such as Morgan Stanley, Merryl Lynch, or Bank of America, have yet to endorse Bitcoin.

However, she believes that the current price movement precedes their potential approval, suggesting that Bitcoin’s valuation could climb even higher once these platforms come on board.

Wood hinted that the revised target price for Bitcoin exceeds the $1 million mark, reflecting her optimistic outlook fueled by anticipated institutional participation, though she did not specify an exact figure.

As Bitcoin approaches new all-time highs, the market braces for a “wild week,” according to James Van Straten, a research and data analyst at CryptoSlate.

Traders and analysts anticipate continued price discovery, driven by ongoing ETF inflows.

Van Straten highlighted the critical moment if Bitcoin surpasses the $70,000 threshold before potential turbulence at Coinbase, the largest U.S. exchange.

This period is seen as crucial for determining Bitcoin’s true market value, especially after recent records saw BTC/USD trading at approximately $69,500.
