Other than the above highlights, the report also shows 55% of participants see Bitcoin price in the $50k-$100k post halving in 2024. A smaller percentage predicts a run to above $150k. More people in West Europe, 51%, expressed this expectation.

The findings reflect a broad spectrum of expectations and investment plans, indicating that 2024 will be a significant year for the Bitcoin market.”
