Cameron Winklevoss Believes Bitcoin Prices Will Skyrocket to $340,000

Despite a 49.94% drop in Bitcoin prices over the last month, Cameron Winklevoss has a bold Bitcoin price prediction...

In a CNBC interview on Feb. 7, 2018, the cryptocurrency billionaire said Bitcoin is still a "very underappreciated asset." He didn't give a time frame, but he said Bitcoin prices could be worth up to 40 times more than what Bitcoin prices were trading for on Feb. 7.

At the time of his bold prediction, Bitcoin prices were trading for roughly $8,500.

That places his bold Bitcoin price prediction at $340,000.

And as bold as that sounds, his reasoning why one Bitcoin today could net gains of 3,900% is not as far-fetched as it sounds...

Why Cameron Winklevoss Believes One Bitcoin Will Be Worth $340,000

Winklevoss told CNBC Bitcoin will disrupt the gold industry as more investors learn about Bitcoin and its properties.

He called Bitcoin a "better gold" because it has a fixed supply, which Winklevoss said is better than being scarce. estimates mineable gold will run out in 2030 or later, but there's not a hard number on how much gold is left.

With Bitcoin, we know that there will only be 21 million ever created. As of Feb. 6, 16,852,188 have been mined.

Winklevoss also said Bitcoin is more portable.

Instead of having to pull gold bars out of a safe and carry them around, all you need to make a Bitcoin payment is a smartphone.

In theory, Bitcoin's properties do make it a "new gold."

It can be used as a store of value because of its finite amount. That will provide a hedge against inflationary currencies, like the dollar.

Plus, it's more portable than gold. The portability makes it easier to use as a payment.

Now, it's true that Bitcoin has an average transaction fee of $4.59 and an average transaction time of nine minutes and 32 seconds, according to

It doesn't make sense to send $10 and have to pay a fee of nearly $5. It also doesn't make sense to use Bitcoin right now as a cryptocurrency payment, because other cryptos have lower fees and faster transaction times.

For example, Litecoin has an average transaction fee of $0.22 and average transaction time of two minutes and 25 seconds.

But if Bitcoin developers can reach a consensus on how to scale Bitcoin to increase transaction capabilities and decrease fees, more people will use it.

With more demand for Bitcoin, prices could climb and reach Winklevoss' bold prediction of $340,000.

But Bitcoin isn't the only technological revolution that could make you money.

In fact, a new breakthrough company could be a once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunity...

Critical: FCC Approves Revolutionary Device

It's a stunning breakthrough that's set to spark the most monumental life-changing transformation you'll ever see.

The Washington Times says the technology behind this revolutionary innovation "will change the world on a scale hardly seen in human history."

And now that it's approved by the FCC, the floodgates are set to open - and could reward early investors with astronomical gains.

With one tiny company at the heart of this massive shift, even a small investment could create staggering wealth for years to come.
