Here’s What Crypto Analysts Predict For 2023
Crypto analyst CredibleCrypto believes BTC price can only go to $15.6K if Bitcoin ends the month below $16.5K. However, he agrees with BitMEX co-founder Arthur Hayes that the BTC price can hit $100K by the 2023 end or early 2024.
Analyst Rekt Capital suggested that the BTC price needs a monthly close above $16.8K to rally higher, otherwise it will see a downfall below $15,000.

Crypto analyst Michael van de Poppe in a recent tweet suggested watching if the $16,400 level is going to provide support here. Bitcoin could have a bearish retest at $16.6K and continue falling.
