The Founder of TenX still confident for a $ 60,000 bitcoin before 2019

In an interview at the Rise conference in Hong Kong, the co-founder of TenX said it was still "quite possible" for the bitcoin price to reach $ 60,000 by the end of the year .

Julian Hosp is the CEO and co-founder of the popular blockchain TenX startup specializing in cryptocurrency payments. During an interview with CNBC, Mr Hosp said he remained very optimistic about the future of the bitcoin course:

"Back in December when the price of bitcoin was $ 20,000, I announced at that time that the course would evolve between $ 5,000 and $ 60,000. The $ 5,000 mark has almost been touched, so let's see if we can go up to $ 60,000. I am always confident enough. "

The price of bitcoin fell below $ 6,000 in June, reaching the same level as in November 2017.

According to Mr Hosp, a positive event could help revive the machine such as "the creation of a large fund dedicated to cryptocurrency" or "a country displaying its support for the currency."

He announced :

"If there are no big events like this, then it may be necessary to wait until next year to reach $ 60,000. If the bitcoin exceeds 10,000 by the end of the summer, then we can expect the media to get into the game and take it to $ 60,000. "

Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin, who is also present at the conference, explained that the fluctuation of prices did not interest developers much, he said:

"We let the price take care of itself. However, if the price is high or if prices fluctuate, it's great for us because it draws attention to our ecosystem, attracts entrepreneurs, attracts technologists and all this interest generates a fundamental value. "
