With the Bitcoin halving event now completed, analysts and market experts turn their attention to a much-anticipated bull run based on historical trends in the BTC market. In particular, a crypto analyst with the X handle ecoinometrics has tipped the maiden cryptocurrency to at least achieve a six-figure in the current bull cycle.

How High Can Bitcoin Rise Post Halving? 

In an X post on Saturday, econometrics shared a strong bullish prediction of Bitcoin price following the fourth halving event on April 19. The crypto analyst stated that if  BTC produced a similar growth pattern seen in previous bull cycles, its market price would likely range between $140,000 – $4,500,000. 

For context, the bull run, which forms the latter part of the Bitcoin bull cycle, occurs in the months following the halving event, according to BTC’s price history. During this period, the market leader is known to record massive price gains, as seen after previous halvings in 2012 (7,592.30%), 2016 (1,818.8%), and 2020.

Econometrics stated that a repeat of such positive performance could see Bitcoin trade as high as $ 4,500,000 per unit. However, other speculators have attacked this prediction, believing BTC will likely soon experience some level of diminishing returns. Thus, such a high price level seems unfeasible.

In response, econometrics stated that Bitcoin currently operates similarly to “megacap tech stocks”, which have shown notable defiance to this economic theory. However, the analyst acknowledged that $4,500,000 may be an unrealistic price target for BTC, but there is much confidence that the digital asset will achieve a mid-six-figure value.

Bitcoin Price Overview

Bitcoin is currently trading at $65,043, with a modest 2.21% gain over the last 24 hours. However, its daily trading volume has declined massively, falling by 52.88% to a substantial $21.62 billion, underscoring decreased market activity and investor interest. 

Over the past week, Bitcoin has also shown fair improvement resulting in a total gain of 1.86%. However, despite these recent gains, the monthly chart reflects a decline of 4.16%, following some significant price dips and massive liquidations in the past week. 

On a larger scale, Bitcoin remains quite impressive, with its year-to-date growth percentage of 131.69%. With a market cap value of  $1.28 trillion, the premier cryptocurrency remains the largest digital asset in the world.
