In a Twitter thread, Venturefounder, a contributor at on-chain analytics platform CryptoQuant, forecast 2022 as Bitcoin’s year to “capitulate”.

“In the next 670 days, BTC will capitulate in the next 6 months and hit cycle bottom ($14-21k), then chop around $28-40k in most of 2023 and be at ~$40k again by next halving,” one of the tweets read.
