Bitcoin bear Mr. Whale, who also goes by the handle Cryptowhale on Twitter, made a sensational claim on Oct 2 “Bitcoin is closer to hitting $0 than it is to hitting $100,000.” But that was just to prove a point, he says.
“I do not think bitcoin will ever hit zero, as it’s mathematically not possible,” Mr. Whale told BeInCrypto in an interview. “This was not a prediction,” he avers, “but merely to put it into perspective.”
His message was aimed particularly at crypto influencers and maximalists who have forecast that the price of bitcoin (BTC) will hit a record high of $100,000 by the end of this year. At the time of publishing, BTC had made a sprint above $51,000.
