At the end of the interview, when being asked what is his expectation of Bitcoin price on this new year’s eve. Lund answered that he thinks the price is going up, it may reach $5000 USD. Continuing on his prediction, he said: “I see Bitcoin at a million dollars someday”.
Furthering his explain “if Bitcoin is at a million dollars, then satoshi is on value parity with the U.S. penny.” That means the whole network would have over $20 trillion of liquidity. He recommended that liquidity could change corporate payments and high-value payments in general.
