JMP Securities Says Bitcoin Could Hit $280,000

JMP Securities projects an unprecedented surge in Bitcoin’s value, potentially reaching $280,000.

This prediction comes from the firm’s latest research report. It forecasts a substantial $220 billion influx into spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) over the next three years. This reflects the growing investor interest in cryptocurrency and positions Coinbase to benefit from these developments.

The JMP report emphasizes the remarkable journey of spot Bitcoin ETFs, which saw inflows hitting $10 billion two months post-launch. According to the analysts, such a staggering figure represents the initial phase of a much larger trend.

With ETF approval acting as a catalyst, the expectation is for these inflows to continue escalating. Indeed, CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young Ju highlighted that a “sell-side liquidity crisis” is imminent if the influx of institutional investments into Bitcoin continues.

“Bears can’t win this game until spot Bitcoin ETF inflow stops… At this rate, we’ll see a sell-side liquidity crisis within 6 months… Once a sell-side liquidity crisis happens, its next cyclical top may exceed our expectations due to limited sell-side liquidity and thin orderbook,” Ju said.

Central to this optimistic outlook is the potential multiplier effect of new capital on Bitcoin’s price. JMP analysts, including Devin Ryan, articulated that a projected inflow of $220 billion could magnify the cryptocurrency’s market cap exponentially, attributing to a valuation of $280,000 per Bitcoin.

This projection relies on an estimated current multiplier of new capital at approximately 25X. Therefore, it suggests a significant impact on Bitcoin’s overall market capitalization.

Interestingly, JPMorgan analyst Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou stated the recent influx could actually be due to a shift in capital from traditional crypto platforms, like exchanges, to spot Bitcoin ETFs. However, he acknowledged that this may change in the future.

“Crypto exchanges saw a cumulative Bitcoin outflow of around $7 billion since the spot Bitcoin ETF launch. In other words, it is more likely that the net flow from retail investors into the newly created ETFs is closer to $2 billion rather than $9 billion,” Panigirtzoglou said.

Panigirtzoglou pointed out that the spot Bitcoin ETF market will expand to $62 billion within the next two to three years. And Coinbase is well-positioned to benefit from the growing ETF market, with JMP Securities adjusting its price target for the COIN stock to $300, up from $220.
