Will Bitcoin rise?
Irrespective of the bearish sentiment across the market, many analysts have stood firm in their projection over bitcoin’s trajectory.
PlanB, the creator of the popular stock-to-flow Bitcoin model put forward his bullish take and even supported his arguments using his price analysis model. “$288K still in play,” he stated in a recent tweet.
He further added,
“It would really surprise me if bitcoin would not touch the black S2FX model line this phase. Regardless of current volatility, yellow-green and blue dots will be (much) higher than red-orange dots.”

The crypto analyst remained steadfastly committed to his previous price projection.
According to the S2F model, it placed Bitcoin on a modest $100,000 average scale. Due to its current downtrend, another analyst stated “It’s a long time since price has been this far below S2F line”.
Another tweet by PlanB addresses the current deviation from the S2F model.
deviation is not much different from 2013 (S2F ~10) or 2017 (S2F ~25), just the usual inertia after a halving

“Bitcoin $100,000 has bullish Ace up its sleeve: Declining Supply — This year follows a cut in Bitcoin supply, making the price more likely to appreciate if past patterns hold.”
