Max Keiser: Institutions Will Purchase Bitcoin Directly From Miners And Box Out The Public As Price Reaches $1M

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, economies worldwide have shuddered and governments have been forced to introduce drastic measures to resuscitate the ailing economy. As a result of this uncertainty, bitcoin has become an attractive investment for institutions. The spark that started with MicroStrategy’s jumbo bitcoin purchase morphed to an institutional frenzy around the flagship cryptocurrency.

The increased appetite for bitcoin from institutions comes from its budding image as a digital store of value. As the demand grows, the supply for BTC shrinks. Max Keiser, vocal bitcoin champion and founder of crypto-focused venture capitalist firm Heisenberg Capital, thinks this serious supply pressure will drive the price of bitcoin to $1 million.

Speaking with Express, Keiser noted that bitcoin’s supply is fixed at 900 BTC per day and will be slashed in half again to 450 BTC in 2024. And this is why he’s of the opinion that institutional players will devise ways of purchasing bitcoin directly from the miners, subsequently shutting out the public. This will be accompanied by the incredible price growth to $1,000,000.

Keiser goes on to predict that Generation Zs who purchased bitcoin while it was trading below $100 will be “the new global elite”. “The world order is about to flip”, he added.

The daily demand for bitcoin from leading crypto exchanges currently exceeds the supply minted by miners on a daily basis. To put things into perspective, the daily demand on these trading platforms totals 2,600 BTC, while miners can only produce 900 BTC per day. Keiser described this supply-demand disparity as “amazing”.

Bitcoin has especially attracted the attention of multi-billion-dollar corporations and billionaires this year. Besides MicroStrategy, Square and Stone Ridge also allocated significant portions of their idle cash reserves to bitcoin, while PayPal recently launched a crypto service that allows users to buy, hold, and sell bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Interestingly, according to Pantera Capital’s Dan Morehead, PayPal and Square’s Cash App are buying more than 100% of newly-minted bitcoins.

And there are also renowned investors putting their money into bitcoin including Paul Tudor Jones and Stan Druckenmiller. Celebrities like Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams have also come out as BTC HODLers.

As more institutions and billionaires come to the bitcoin space, the supply scarcity will intensify. The only way supply and demand counterbalance are at a higher price.
