Bitcoin (BTC) touched a lifetime price high on Saturday, December 19, 2020, at $24,217 per unit.

While digital asset fans have been digging the price rises a great number of traders playing bearish positions have been liquidated this week. According to data from Coinalyze, there were huge trade volumes on Friday and “$80 billion on future markets, $10 billion on spot markets.â€

“$800 million got liquidated: both longs and shorts,†Coinalyze added. “Over the previous two days, $1 billion shorts got liquidated.â€

Meanwhile, “Finder’s 2021 Bitcoin Predictions Report†surveyed 47 experts and 58% of panelists expect the bull run to last until at least the second half of 2021. Interestingly the panelists surveyed discussed their predictions at the beginning of December before bitcoin (BTC) touched $20k. However, a majority of those surveyed also said that BTC will drop sharply after it reaches peak valuation.

Gavin Smith, Panxora Crypto Hedge Fund managing partner, participated in Finder’s survey and he believes that bitcoin (BTC) will end the year above the $20k handle.

“Bitcoin is now being used as a hedge against fiat money printing by early adopters in both retail and institutional sectors,†Smith said. “This trend is expected to continue. We don’t believe this will be an uninterrupted move higher, we expect the market will exhibit high volatility to both the upside and downside but with a clear bias to higher levels.â€
