Supercycle may propel Bitcoin over $1 million, Kraken’s Dan Held says

Kraken’s head of growth, Dan Held, thinks Bitcoin could reach $1 million within the current market cycle.
According to Dan Held, growth lead at Kraken, Bitcoin is currently experiencing a supercycle that could propel it all the way to $1 million.In Held’s view, this market cycle is fundamentally different from previous ones. “This is one in a hundred year moment”, he said, mentioning the coronavirus crisis, growing distrust in financial institutions and central bank money printing as catalysts of the current crypto bull market.“People aren’t just in it for a speculative run anymore. People are buying it because they see Bitcoin’s value”, he explained.Held is also convinced that once Bitcoin will reach its full potential as digital gold, it will challenge governments’ monopoly over money.“Bitcoin undermines their entire power and authority by removing money from their ownership,” he said.At that point, governments will see crypto as a threat and crack down on it in what Held defines as a “crypto mass extinction event.” According to Held, altcoins won’t be able to survive such an attack, since most of them are “degrading their censorship resistance and decentralized properties in order to increase their throughput.” Bitcoin, however, was specifically designed to resist such censorship.“Satoshi built the Blockchain to build Bitcoin, and he built it to be an incredibly resilient tool against governments,” Held said.Watch the full interview on our Youtube channel and don’t forget to subscribe!
