Two Bitcoin price prediction polls, same outcome: $10K BTC is coming

Bitcoin (BTC) investors in China plan to buy the dip despite an ongoing market correction and a nationwide crypto ban, a new survey shows.

Consensus sees Bitcoin at $10K

A survey of 2,200 people conducted on China-based social media platform Weibo found that 8% of would buy Bitcoin when its price hits $18,000, according to Wu Blockchain. While 26% of the respondents prefer to wait until BTC reaches $15,000.

But a majority anticipated the price to fall even further with 40% saying they would buy BTC at $10,000.

Chinese investors more cautious on Bitcoin than U.S.

Interestingly, another survey conducted by Bloomberg MLIV Pulse earlier in July yielded a similar outcome: 60% of the net 950 respondents on Wall Street calling for a $10,000 Bitcoin price.

The two polls show a striking similarity in bearish sentiments of crypto speculators in the U.S. and China. Nonetheless, on-chain activity shows that investors in the U.S. have been more bullish on Bitcoin versus their Asian counterparts since June 2022.

In particula, Bitcoin’s month-to-month price change, which tracks the 30-day change in the regional BTC price, has been positive only during U.S. sessions. Conversely, the metric has only been negative during Asian trading hours, data from Glassnode shows.
