Everyone loves to try and guess Bitcoin's price. Will it go up? Will it go to zero? Is this magical internet money going to make it?

Table of Contents

The art of predicting the price of Bitcoin is practiced far and wide. While some prefer to live on the pessimistic side, looking to a future when Bitcoin is at zero, the crypto sphere is a wasteland, and big banks rule all.

Others see the future of this "magical internet money" as limitless, predicting numbers that would make almost anyone with any Bitcoin rich enough to buy one (or more) Lambos.

CoinMarketCap has made a list of the most recent Bitcoin price predictions to see if anyone (anyone at all) is getting it right.
