Bitcoin’s market capitalization has crossed the $1 trillion zone after the price per coin surpassed $53,650 per unit. The valuation comes 145 months after the launch of the Bitcoin network on January 3, 2009.
The conversation about reaching the 1 trillion dollar milestone was a topical conversation all week, as bitcoiners said it was a long time coming. The same day, the software developer, Jameson Lopp, also talked about the $1 trillion event on social media. “The first trillion is the hardest,” Lopp tweeted to his 262,000 followers.
After Lopp made his statement, a number of people compared the decentralized crypto asset’s market valuation to Apple Inc. (AAPL).
It took Apple Inc. around 504 months (42.0319 years) to get to a $1 trillion market valuation one person responded. Another individual mentioned that after Apple captured the $1 trillion valuation, it only took 26 months to reach $2 trillion, which means the ride to a $2 trillion valuation for bitcoin (BTC) very well could be a far less time frame.
Bitcoin reaching a $1 trillion valuation has been a big deal to a number of proponents and many believe the crypto asset is just warming up. The popular creator of the stock-to-flow (S2F) model, Plan B, discussed the watershed moment.
“Straight line up to a $1trillion market cap,” he said to his 269,000 followers. “Bitcoin going for gold next ($10T),” he insisted.
Civic founder Vinny Lingham, often referred to as the oracle, thinks making it to the $60,000 zone might be in the cards.
“Bitcoin looks primed to make a big break above $50k,” Lingham wrote just before the price surpassed the $50k handle. “Once it clears, it will likely test and break $60k quickly. We could find out which [altcoins] are uncorrelated, as there will likely be some carnage in the alt market, if such a big move materializes,” Lingham added.
