Max Keiser – an ex-trader at Wall Street and the RT program Keiser Report host – reportedly claimed that he was confident Bitcoin will pass the $15,000 milestone within the week.
Stated via a Twitter post on Aug 3, Kelser remarked that he is “sensing #Bitcoin will cross $15,000 this week.” He also revealed that the confidence level of people in central governments, central banks and centralized fiat currency is hitting a never-before-seen low point in the past years.
“I’m confident. So I just burned another $10,000 in $USD shitcoin. Correlation does not equal causation, but whenever I burn a few thousand $USD, BTC price goes up significantly.”
A recent report from Delphi Digital – an independent research boutique in the digital asset market – seem to support Keiser’s claims.
“First, and arguably most important, sentiment from global central banks took a drastic turn towards more dovish monetary policies. The Fed, ECB, BOJ, PBOC, and many others are now preparing market participants for more rate cuts and additional stimulus measures as they attempt to keep the current economic expansion going.”
In June 2019, Keiser has reportedly spoken out against Bitcoin (BTC) pessimists, when Bitcoin crossed $11,000. His tweet concentrated heavily on gold supporters, following numerous comments that despite its growth, Bitcoin is still an inferior currency compared to the metal.
