Ran Neuner, the host of CNBC’s Cryptotrader show and the 28th person on the Richtopia’s list of the most important experts for the blockchain technology, says bitcoin will end this year with the price of 50,000 US dollars for one bitcoin.
CNBC is getting more and more involved in the reporting about the cryptocurrencies in the last few months. At the beginning of January, the famous TV network broadcasted a step-by-step guide for buying Ripple by using Poloniex as a purchasing platform. The host Bryan Kelly demonstrated the entire process live on television.
In December last year, CNBC’s show Fast Money mentioned Bitcoin Cash (BCH). The show published a tweet where a comparison between the drop of the price of bitcoin and the rise of the price of Bitcoin Cash was made. The reactions to the tweet were different. Some users expressed their disagreement with such messages, especially because they thought the TV network was promoting Bitcoin Cash, which some people considered to be a fake coin used to scam people.
After the new drop of the price of bitcoin in the last few days, the newest prediction made by Ran Neuner provoked different reactions. Some users were sarcastic and think the price of bitcoin on December 31st, 2018 at 23:59 will be exactly 50,000 dollars.
