According to Fundstrat’s data, this point is at around $7,000. Bitcoin is currently trading well below this value – $5,550 at press time. According to CNBC, however, Lee told clients in a note Friday that BTC has “never sustained a move below breakeven [sic].” While he is strongly betting on recovery, Lee acknowledges that breaking “below that psychologically important $6,000” leads “to a renewed wave of pessimism.” Moreover, he also added: “But we believe the negati..

So all that will become real, and you’ll see some adoption actually. And then [...] the price [will bounce] bac..
