Bitcoin [BTC], the world’s largest cryptocurrency has seen a surge in popularity again after the recent price increase. This movement was also helped by comments and suggestions from proponents and luminaries in the field of digital assets.

A recent tweet had asked Twitter users interested in cryptocurrencies about the “maximum reasonable price that Bitcoin can achieve in the reasonable future”, something which gained a lot of traction after the involvement of famous personalities like Changpeng Zhao and Ryan Selkis.

CZ, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, answered the question by stating:

“There is no such a thing as Max price for $btc.”

He was also asked:

“Do you mean potentially infinitely high price of BTC or that in the near future goods and services will be priced in BTC and it won’t make sense to correlate it with USD?”

CZ’s reply was to the point when he claimed that there was no such thing as maximum inflation for fiat, a statement that a lot of people agreed with.

Ryan Selkis, the Founder of Messari had another opinion to the original question. He said,

“After $250k / BTC the dollar’s reserve status will be in jeopardy, so all bets are off.”

CZ and Selkis were not the first individuals to predict such positive movement as many in the past have predicted Bitcoin to reach heights of even $1 million per Bitcoin. At the time of writing, Bitcoin was trading at $7,967.54, with a total market cap of $14.21 billion. The 24-hour trading volume of the cryptocurrency was $21.04 billion, while the currency was holding a steady 0.45 percent increase in its value over the hour.
