The hedge fund billionaire, Marc Lasry, believes Bitcoin (BTC) will reach $40,000 dollars. At the same time, Thomas Lee, Fundstrat Global co-founder sees this grow in the crypto market a very important bullish signal.
During an interview with CNBC’s ‘SquawkBox,’ Marc Lasry, said that he believes Bitcoin can reach $40,000 in the next few years. It is important to mention that Bitcoin was in a bear market since December 2017, so $40,000 it is a great target for the coming months in the crypto world.
He commented on the matter:
“You are hoping that as it gets more into the mainstream and as more markets allow it to trade where it’s freely tradable, to me, that’s more the market bet. I think then you will start seeing the price of it as it’s easier for people to buy. I think then you will have something that will end up being somewhere around $20,000 – $40,000.”
Mar Lasry co-founded a hedge fund in 1995 with his sister Sonia Gardner which specializes in distressed debt in the United States, Europe and Asia. Indeed, as of June 2018, the company had $9.6 billion dollars of assets under management.

Additionally, he said that some positive news like MasterCard filing a blockchain and crypto patent may have helped the price to grow exponentially during the last day.
