In sharing the survey results, Nickel detailed:

Professional investors predict a strong year for bitcoin and are confident about its long-term valuation. Nearly nine in 10 professional investors expect bitcoin’s price to rise this year. Two out of three agree that a $100,000 valuation is possible, but only for long-term investors.

Regarding the price of bitcoin, the asset manager said, “The study revealed high levels of confidence in the long-term trend of the crypto-currency,” adding that 23 percent of those surveyed predicted the price of bitcoin would rise this year and exceed $30,000 by the end of 2023.

In addition, 65% of institutional investors surveyed believe bitcoin could still reach $100,000 in the long run. Of those, 58% expect BTC to reach that price level within three to five years, while 25% say it will take five years or more.

Meanwhile, 39% of total respondents predicted that the price of bitcoin would reach its November 2021 peak of $69,000 within three years, while 76% said it would likely happen within five years. “Only 3% of those surveyed questioned whether bitcoin will reach the previous all-time high again“, the asset management firm noted.

Nickel CEO Anatoly Crachilov commented:

Price predictions in the crypto-currency market are always a daunting task, however the most significant result of our survey is that only 3% of investors question the future of bitcoin.
