Bitcoin Adoption is Growing and 30% of World Population Could Own BTC
The increased number of active Bitcoin addresses in the month of November is a confirmation that BTC is continually being used for regular financial transactions and as a store of value. Veteran Bitcoin analyst, Willy Woo, estimates that if the current adoption rate continues, 30% of the world’s population will own Bitcoin in 4 years.
Surprising fact: Assuming Bitcoin adoption rate continues its present 2.2x per year “Moore’s Law” of growth (which it has for 10 years so far), then 30% of the world population will own Bitcoin in 4 years time.
Bitcoin’s Metcalfe’s Value is at $12k
Network activity on the Bitcoin blockchain is also at the core of the Metcalfe model used by Timothy Peterson of Cane Island Alternative advisors. According to his model, Bitcoin’s Metcalfe value currently stands at $12k and is the lowest price forward based on activity on the BTC network.
Mr. Peterson shared this value of Bitcoin via the following Tweet and also emphasized the importance of adoption in determining the current and future value of BTC.
