Bitcoin ETFs flows could bring BTC to $112k price, CryptoQuant suggests

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) could reach $112,000 as early as 2024, according to CryptoQuant.

CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young Ju believes the current trend of inflows related to spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs) will continue. He said the “worst case scenario” for Bitcoin would be at least $55,000, or almost 15% higher than prices on Monday, Feb. 12. The targets were set based on the impact of inflows on Bitcoin’s market capitalization and a metric ratio that historically indicated whether prices were “overvalued” or “undervalued.”

At the same time, the BTC market has seen an influx of spot ETFs of $9.5 billion per month, potentially increasing the realized limit by $114 billion, Ki Young Ju pointed out.

“Even with $GBTC outflows, a $76B rise could elevate the realized cap from $451B to $527-565B.”

The CryptoQuant CEO also noted that the ratio tracking Bitcoin’s market capitalization to realized capitalization potentially marks a top for Bitcoin between $104,000 and $112,000. At these prices, the ratio would reach 3.9, a level that has historically marked price tops.

Just a month after launch, the nine leading spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) 200,000 BTC, or $9.5 billion in assets. The nine Bitcoin ETFs include BlackRock (IBIT), Fidelity (FBTC), Bitwise (BITB), Ark 21Shares (ARKB), Invesco (BTCO), VanEck (HODL), Valkyrie (BRRR), Franklin Templeton (EZBC) and WisdomTree (BTCW).
