  • Cathie Wood emphasized the approval of 11 ETFs, boosting Bitcoin’s mainstream acceptance.
  • Wood foresaw Bitcoin’s rising demand amid concerns of interest rates and global stability.

Amidst a slight downturn where Bitcoin [BTC] experienced a 0.84% dip in the last 24 hours, reaching $65,494.96, the optimism among various Bitcoin maximalists regarding its future trajectory remained unaltered. 

Adding to the fray, Cathie Wood, founder & CEO of Ark Invest, in a recent conversation with Anthony Pompliano at the Bitcoin Investor Day in New York, shed light on how Bitcoin could reach $1.5 Million. 

Acknowledging the remarkable energy surrounding the simultaneous approval of 11 ETFs, a first-of-its-kind occurrence in the financial landscape. She noted, 

“I think it’s done a great service for Bitcoin and digital assets generally because this is just the beginning of a completely new asset class.” 

Macro factors influencing Bitcoin’s price 

Wood also attributed the current price volatility of Bitcoin to increasing demand, driven not only by ETF investments but also by macroeconomic factors.

Reflecting on the recent Fed interest rates, Wood highlighted how concerns over interest rates, inflation, and global economic stability were prompting investors to seek refuge in Bitcoin as a hedge. 

She noted, 

“We’re very focused on what’s going on in the emerging markets right now. I think with time many more people will understand that the FED with a 24-fold increase in interest rates over little more than a year’s time has absolutely shocked the financial system.”

Does Bitcoin’s long-term trajectory look optimistic?  

Further emphasizing Bitcoin’s dual nature, the CEO of Ark Invest added, 

“Many people think of Bitcoin as a risk on asset and it’s certainly has traded like that over time, but we have been looking at it as both risk on and risk off.”

She further added, 

“Regional bank crisis last year kind of confirmed that point of view, that here Bitcoin more than doubled as regional banks were imploding.”

This underscored the growing interest and confidence in Bitcoin among institutional investors and traditional financial institutions alike.

In conclusion, despite short-term market fluctuations, Wood remained optimistic about Bitcoin’s long-term trajectory.

With a growing understanding of its underlying technology and potential, she sees Bitcoin as a transformative force in global finance. Notably, it could reach $1.5 million or beyond in the future.
