Bloomberg's senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone said that the way Bitcoin's supply and demand work favors the cryptocurrency.

Bloomberg’s senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone believes that Bitcoin may be entering a stage of unstoppable growth. Mr. McGlone argues that the current price of oil ($84 per barrel) is similar to the price seen in October 2007. He believes that Bitcoin has an “appreciation advantage” because it didn’t exist 15 years ago. The latest Bloomberg report shows that there is an interesting trend happening.

McGlone said:”The fact that the benchmark crypto index hasn’t dropped with the latest round of rate-hike expectations may also signal that the Federal Reserve is nearing the end of its rate-hiking cycle. A potential catalyst for central banks to curtail tightening (i.e. raise interest rates) is for markets, such as stocks and commodities, to do it for them. This may favor Bitcoin, which is not subject to central bank control.”

Bloomberg strategist Mike McGlone believes that BTC’s diminishing supply could have a major impact on the global economy. Therefore, he believes that the price should continue to rise over time unless something unusual reverses demand and BTC adoption rates. Mr. McGlone said that he was also very happy with the way things had turned out.
