    Bitcoin To Surpass $120,000 In A Year, Says Pantera CEO

    Pantera CEO Dan Morehead has recently revealed his predictions for the price of bitcoin going forward. The CEO runs Pantera Capital, which runs the first bitcoin fund that was launched in the United States. Pantera’s bitcoin fund was launched in 2013, back when the digital asset was worth only $65 per coin.
    Given the impeccable timing of when the fund got into bitcoin, it is not surprising that the founder’s thoughts are taken seriously in the cryptocurrency space.  The fund continues to see continued support as more institutional investors are getting into the digital asset. Seeing the recent price dips as a buying opportunity to get into the pioneer cryptocurrency.
