Pompliano told CNBC’s Melissa Lee that “Bitcoin is a 10x improvement on gold†and “we will one day see a $1M Bitcoin price, which is only 2x the gold market cap.†Bitcoin’s $778B market cap is now half the size of silver’s market cap of roughly 1,700,000 metric tons of .999 Ag.

In a response to Pompliano’s guest appearance on Fast Money, Microstrategy’s Michael Saylor said: “Gradually, then suddenly, investors are coming to the horrifying realization that Gold is a zombie store of value.†Similarly, the bitcoin bull, Chamath Palihapitiya, also spoke on CNBC and told the broadcasters that BTC will be going to $200k someday. Palihapitiya spoke about the mistrust in governments and central banks worldwide and said first it will be $100k and then $200k at some point down the road.

The analyst Willy Woo tweeted some opinions that he had as he believes we may never see the $20k price zone again. “Update,†Woo tweeted. Never going to see $20k again, $25k will take a black swan to pierce, rising $500 per day. $30k is formidable support. 30% is the maximum projected pull back once BTC tops at current structure (changing fast),†he added.

Following the statements about BTC, an individual asked Woo his thoughts on ETH’s rally. “ATH is a beautiful thing. Nothing like seeing an asset go into outer space with free flowing price discovery. ETH is about to do that,†Woo responded.
