El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele predicted in January that two more countries will make BTC legal tender in 2022. The CEO of cryptocurrency derivatives trading platform Bitmex, Alex Hoeptner, stated in October 2021 that five countries will officially use bitcoin as payment by the end of this year.

In his opinion, the cryptocurrency can reach $500 000 per coin in the long term. Scaramucci expects that bitcoin to be stored in more than a billion wallets by the end of 2025, with the number of users reaching 2,5-3 billion within the next decade.
