A booming market
At current prices, over $10 billion worth of BTC is mined each year, with 328,500 new BTC being released. The last of the 21 million BTC will be mined in 2140, meaning mining will continue for at least another 100 years. With this as the market context, BTC’s price is forecast to increase with JP Morgan setting a $146,000 price target for 2021 and CitiBank publishing a report calling BTC the “21st century gold” predicting a $318,000 BTC price by the end of 2021. While BTC is the market leader within the cryptocurrency landscape holding a $606 billion market capitalisation, it accounts for 45.6% of the total cryptocurrency market cap, with alternative cryptocurrencies making up for the remaining 54.4%
An expert team
BWS is led by market and subject matter experts regularly referenced in global media outlets. The team includes CEO and co-founder Mason Jappa, who additionally sits on the advisory board of Nasdaq-listed RIOT Blockchain and Sam Chwarzynski, co-founder and Chief Investment Officer.
