From a big Bitcoin prediction from one of the biggest crypto whales on record to a surge of interest in Litecoin, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
Gemini co-founder and Bitcoin billionaire Tyler Winklevoss says he’s betting on Bitcoin hitting $15,000 if bulls can cross key resistance at $10,000.
Tyler and his brother Cameron have seen plenty of Bitcoin boom-and-bust cycles. They say they bought 1% of all BTC in existence back in 2012, when the cost was about $9 per coin.
If bitcoin breaks 10k, you can bet it’s going to break 15k…???

The prediction echoes the recent forecast from Fundstrat co-founder and head of research Tom Lee, who says Bitcoin’s past market cycles indicate BTC will surge 200-400% if it can cross $10K.
A new episode of the Into the Ether podcast is out.
