• Pantera Capital predicted that Bitcoin (BTC) could reach as high as $147,843 per coin following the 2024 halving event.
• The prediction is based on the Stock-to-Flow (S2F) ratio model which suggests that BTC value appreciates over time due to its diminishing supply.

Pantera Capital Predicts Bitcoin Price of $148K Following Halving
American hedge fund Pantera Capital has given a new forecast for the price of Bitcoin (BTC), predicting that it may reach as high as $147,843 per coin following the 2024 halving event. The asset manager currently boasts of $3.5 billion worth of Assets Under Management (AUM).
Stock-to-Flow Model Used to Analyze Price Trends
The prediction was arrived at after using the Stock-to-Flow (S2F) ratio as a price model to evaluate and predict future pricing trends across each halving event. Utilizing this theory, BTC valuation was considered against its scarcity and then further contrasted its circulating supply with its annual production flow. Data derived from this theory suggested that as BTC’s issuance rate diminishes through consecutive halvings, its value will likely appreciate over time.
Price Expected To Increase By 32% Before Halving
As per the report, Bitcoin may rally by about 32% from its current price before the next halving occurs around April 20th, 2024, during which block reward for miners will be slashed resulting in a decrease in circulating supply of new coins entering the market. Afterward, it’s expected to surge by 450%, reaching $148,000 –the peak of next bullish cycle– according to Pantera Capital’s predictions.
At the time of writing this article, Bitcoin was trading at approximately $26,025.84 per data from Marketcap.
