Fidelity’s Director on Bitcoin and Ether Price Outlook

Jurrien Timmer, director of Global Macro in Fidelity Investments’ global asset allocation division, shared his bitcoin and ether price analysis in a series of tweets Friday. Timmer specializes in global macro strategy and active asset allocation. He joined Fidelity 27 years ago as a technical research analyst.

He explained why bitcoin is cheap. “I use the price per millions of non-zero addresses as an estimate for bitcoin’s valuation, and the chart below shows that valuation is all the way back to 2013 levels, even though price is only back to 2020 levels,” he detailed, emphasizing:

In other words, bitcoin is cheap.

“At its recent low of $17,600, bitcoin is now below even my more conservative S-curve model, which is based on the internet adoption curve,” the Fidelity director added.

Timmer noted that it is clear from looking at Bitcoin’s network growth that “the adoption curve is tracking the more asymptotic internet adoption curve, rather than the more exponential mobile phone curve.” He continued: “Per Metcalfe’s Law, slower network growth suggests a more modest price appreciation.”

However, “based on a simple power regression line, Bitcoin’s network appears to be intact,” the director opined. “That continued growth in Bitcoin’s network, combined with lower prices, means that bitcoin’s valuation is coming down.”

The Fidelity director of Global Macro proceeded to share his ether price outlook, tweeting:

If bitcoin is cheap, then perhaps ethereum is cheaper. If ETH is where BTC was four years ago, then the analog below suggests that ethereum could be close to a bottom.

At the time of writing, bitcoin is trading at $21,584, up 11% over the past seven days but down 29% over the past 30 days. Ether is trading at $1,217, up 14% over the last seven days but down 32% over the past 30 days.
