The Crypto Report
While US investors were enjoying the Fourth of July festivities, Bitcoin was slowly inching its way closer to the US$7,000 mark.
Bitcoin reached US$6,785 on Wednesday but couldn’t quite hit the target.
Wall Street strategist Tom Lee cut his year-end Bitcoin price target but still believes it could hit US$20,000 per unit by the end of the year.
The co-founder of Fundstrat Global Advisors gave a previous estimate of US$25,000.
"Bitcoin has historically traded at 2.5 times its mining costs. It's not out of the question that it could be over $20,000 by the end of the year at fair value," said Lee in an interview on CNCB’s Squawk Box.
Bitcoin was trading at US$6,622.22 in Thursday afternoon trading.
