Max Keiser is well-known for his bullish, and sometimes outrageous, bitcoin price predictions.

It was only a few days ago that the self-described “tweet poet” endorsed John McAfee’s $1 million bitcoin price prediction, and now he is doubling, or rather tripling down on his own $100,000 estimate.

Max Keiser believes bitcoin can equal gold

Max Keiser has been calling for a $100,000 bitcoin price for a long time, telling everyone to stack the flagship cryptocurrency as it is on track to beat all asset classes thanks to its massive upside potential. The good news is that Keiser’s price prediction is based on a solid plank that a few others on Wall Street will agree with.

Keiser believes that bitcoin will continue running higher because it has the potential to take market share away from gold.

This is not the first time that a crypto bull has said that bitcoin has the potential to replace gold as a safe-haven asset.

Backers such as Fundstrat’s Tom Lee say that the fact that the cryptocurrency has shot up remarkably this year despite the global economic turmoil and the trade wars that the US is waging shows that investors are willing to park their funds in bitcoin to protect capital.

Others, including Block.One’s Brendan Blumer argue that the ease of transfer of bitcoin from one person to another, its divisibility into smaller units, and the fact that one can make both small and big payments using the cryptocurrency make it a good alternative for gold.

Hedge fund chief Mark Yusko estimates that bitcoin could go on to hit a price of $500,000 in the long run.

His prediction is based on the gold market’s capitalization of $7.4 trillion and the fact that the supply of the cryptocurrency will be limited to 21 million coins at most.

But investors have reportedly lost the keys to 23% of the BTC in circulation, which will only aid the cryptocurrency’s rally in the future.
