As it was aid in Dan Moorhead’s letter on August 21, 2013: «I truly believe that Bitcoin will raise. I understand that from standards of a normal securities market point of view this sounds insane, but I believe that within 6-8 weeks, bitcoin will jump over $ 200. Yesterday I had a talk on Bitcoin with one investor, and he was somewhat skeptical: «This is akin buying gold». No, it’s like buying gold in 1000 BC. 99% of financial wealth remains affected by bitcoin. When this happens, bitcoin will be either worth zero or $ 5000».
At that time Bitcoin price was $104, and by November 6, 2013 it rose to $253, when the second letter was sent.
In Pantera Capital November letter was written: «I think it can be described as taking a decision wether to buy Microsoft [shares] in the days when they were worth $ 0.20. Event with $0.10 [per share] it was a tough decision. Over time - it turned to be an absolutely a great purchase. The first global currency after gold and the very first non-recognition payment system with a capitalization of $ 3 billion? Theres no more Silk Road, and a new wave of sophisticated investors is coming».
Along with that, demonstrating stable exponential growth, company demonstrates Bitcoin price historical chart dated July 2010.
"The gold line is the trend line for this period. The price of bitcoin will be about $ 21,000 and $ 67,500 - by the end of 2019. I’m pretty convinced of that. This is our price prognosis for the moment». - Dan Moorhead writes.
