Scott Minerd’s Latest Warning About Bitcoin

The chief investment officer (CIO) of Guggenheim Partners, Scott Minerd, is back with another bearish prediction for bitcoin’s price.

Given the massive move we’ve had in bitcoin over the short run, things are very frothy, and I think we’re going to have a major correction in bitcoin.

“I think we could pull back to $20,000 to $30,000 on bitcoin, which would be a 50% decline, but the interesting thing about bitcoin is we’ve seen these kinds of declines before,” he continued.

Nonetheless, Minerd noted that he thinks the major price correction is part of “the normal evolution in what is a longer-term bull market.”

The Guggenheim CIO has maintained his long-term prediction that the price of bitcoin could reach $600K. He first revealed his high BTC price forecast back in December last year. However, he subsequently focused on bearish short-term trends. Earlier this month, he warned of a bitcoin pullback, noting that it will be a great entry point for long-term investors.
