“What we’ve witnessed during the last few months is just how amenable high-profile investors appear to be to the bitcoin pitch. An analogy I keep coming back to is that of a focus group—you take a small sample and expose them to a certain idea or concept, and you study their reactions,” Eric Wall, Chief Investment Officer (CIO) at Arcane Research, said.

According to him, if the focus group members are representative of a larger demographic, the group’s reactions can be expected to reflect the views of that larger demographic.

“The results are now in; the pitch is working,” he added.

However, according to the CIO, giving an exact price call for a new bull cycle is “rather baseless guesswork” as the peak will entirely depend on “how intense the hysteria gets at its climax.”
