Bitcoin may have tumbled from all-time highs of nearly $65,000, but don’t count it out just yet. With a good deal of retail and institutional interest, the digital currency appears to have bottomed out, pivoting back to $56,600, fueling stocks like Tokens.com Corp. (NEO:COIN)(FSE:76M), Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN), Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ:RIOT), Marathon Digital Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA), and HIVE Blockchain (TSXV:HIVE)(OTC:HVBTF).
From here, Bitcoin could rally $250,000 within five years, says Morgan Creek Capital Management’s Mark Yusko, as noted by CNBC. “What people miss is this is a technological evolution of computing power that isn’t going away,” he added. “It is a powerful computing network that is going to become the base layer protocol for the Internet of value.”

Coinbase co-Founder and CEO Brian Armstrong recently noted, “A decade of work and so many people brought us here. This includes every Coinbase employee, focused for years on building a financial system that’s free, fair, and open to everyone. It also includes you, the 56 million people who use Coinbase. And of course, we have to recognize Satoshi Nakamoto, who started it all by introducing Bitcoin to the world in 2008. We’ve had a number of ups and downs on our way here. Through luck and skill, Coinbase succeeded where many predicted it would fail. We weathered the ups and downs through innovation and keeping our eye on the long term. And along the way, we made cryptocurrency easier to use, introducing millions of people to this new technology. I’m proud of what we have accomplished so far. But we certainly didn’t do all this work just for one day.”
