Bitcoin fell below $50,000 on Friday. The pioneer cryptocurrency is currently trading at around $49,405 at 11:10 GMT. Within the last 24 hours, the coin lost 8.9%, a massive loss to traders and investors.
However, stock-to-flow models creator, PlanB, has said that he’s relieved that the coin has lost over 22% in just a week. Saying that Bitcoin is still acting “like clockwork” with regards to their price predictions.
“I Am Sort Of Relieved,” Says PlanB
In a tweet on Friday, analyst PlanB noted that the price dip to under $48,000 has sent BTC below it’s target laid out by his stock-to-flow model. Due to this, Bitcoin is no longer “front-running” stock-to-flow.
After the benchmark cryptocurrency traded above its required level, the quant analyst had suggested that the price movement of the coin was becoming inorganic.
“I am sort of relieved btc price is now under s2f model value again,” he wrote in a conversation with “The Bitcoin Standard” author Saifedean Ammous, who called PlanB’s predictions “astonishing.”
“For a moment I thought that people were front running the model and that the supercycle had started. Now we are back to normal .. like clockwork,” PlanB added.
The stock-to-flow and stock-to-flow (S2F) cross-asset (S2FX), variously call for an average BTC/USD price of $100,000 or $288,000 between now and 2024. This is the supercycle being expected.
PlanB said he believed Bitcoin would not stop at $100,000, which it should hit this year.
“Bitcoiners are often too bullish in the bull market, and too bearish in the bear market! I don’t think we supercycle this time either,” podcast host Stephan Livera, responded to Ammous.
Sentiment And Market Indications
Immediately the market dipped below $50k, notorious gold bug and crypto-skeptic, Peter Schiiff, was also quick to comment on the market action, poking fun at Bitcoin proponent Anthony Pompliano. He tweeted:
“Now that Bitcoin is back below $50k I think it’s time for @APompliano to tweet out $1k milestones on the way down the way he did on the way up.”
