Young Ju also brought attention to the resilience of Bitcoin investors from the 2021 bull cycle, who are now nearing the break-even point, commending their patience and long-term commitment.
Syncracy Capital‘s Daniel Cheung further bolstered the optimistic sentiment, predicting this bull cycle could be the largest in terms of market cap creation and duration.
Cheung pointed to several factors, including the alignment with the Fed’s easing cycle, a sustained “buy the dip” mentality and increased institutional buy-in from large consumer enterprises.
Cheung also highlighted the emergence of new narratives within the crypto space, such as DePIN, Crypto and AI, and Real World Assets (RWAs), which could drive wealth creation.
Additionally, he mentioned the constructive regulatory landscape following BlackRock Inc.‘s entrance into the market and the clearing of bad actors from the previous cycle. Cheung is “feeling optimistic for the next 12 to 24 months.”
