Bitcoin Could Hit $25,000, Says Eerily Accurate Crypto Analyst
Bitcoin’s price action may seem unpredictable, but there are some commentators that have mastered the art of doing the impossible. One such individual is a pseudonymous trader known as “PentarhUdi,” who shares his thoughts via TradingView.
He predicted Bitcoin would bottom around the $3,000s in December, then bounce to ~$15,000 by the middle of 2019, drop to the $6,000s by late 2019, then begin a parabolic uptrend.
While the pandemic-induced drop in March threw a wrench into his plans, everything else came to be.
PentarhUdi now predicts that Bitcoin could hit $20,000 or even higher in the next three months. Referencing the chart below, the analyst wrote:
“This is not more than 4 months prediction, as I spotted new bullish channel . According to my idea price may reach ATH area in 2 months with following some triangle-like consolidation. For EW lovers – I think price is in starting local III wave with all 3rd-wave-specific bullish drama around. Wave length is around 2 months.”

Far from the Only Optimist
Although $20,000 in two/three months is on the high-end of the prediction spectrum, there are many other optimists sharing similar sentiment to PentarhUdi.
Mike Novogratz, a former Goldman Sachs partner and current CEO of Galaxy Digital, sees Bitcoin hitting a new high this year. Telling CNBC in an interview last week how Federal Reserve and central bank money printing will boost scarce assets, he said:
“Great bubbles usually end with policy moves… It doesn’t look like the Fed is going to raise rates … The liquidity story isn’t going to go away. We’re going to get a big stimulus. Bitcoin still has a lot of retail interest in it. A lot of that retail interest shifted to the story stocks, to the tech stocks, because they were just more fun … Yesterday you saw a lot of money shift back over to gold and bitcoin.”
The calls for a new high by the end of 2020 have been echoed by other market participants. These include BitMEX chief executive Arthur Hayes, Pantera Capital’s two co-CIOs, and many pseudonymous traders on Twitter.
