Bitcoin’s market capitalization crosses the $1 trillion zone

The price of bitcoin (BTC) has surpassed the territory needed to have a $1 trillion market capitalization. The valuation is a milestone to many crypto supporters who have rallied for the leading currency for the last decade. For the last two weeks, digital currency advocates discussed BTC’s slow and steady approach toward the 1 trillion dollar zone. For instance, on February 16, The Block’s director of research Larry Cermak said:

The conversation about reaching the 1 trillion dollar milestone was a topical conversation all week, as bitcoiners said it was a long time coming. The same day, the software developer, Jameson Lopp, also talked about the $1 trillion event on social media. “The first trillion is the hardest,” Lopp tweeted to his 262,000 followers.

After Lopp made his statement, a number of people compared the decentralized crypto asset’s market valuation to Apple Inc. (AAPL).

It took Apple Inc. around 504 months (42.0319 years) to get to a $1 trillion market valuation one person responded. Another individual mentioned that after Apple captured the $1 trillion valuation, it only took 26 months to reach $2 trillion, which means the ride to a $2 trillion valuation for bitcoin (BTC) very well could be a far less time frame.

Bitcoin reaching a $1 trillion valuation has been a big deal to a number of proponents and many believe the crypto asset is just warming up. The popular creator of the stock-to-flow (S2F) model, Plan B, discussed the watershed moment.

“Straight line up to a $1trillion market cap,” he said to his 269,000 followers. “Bitcoin going for gold next ($10T),” he insisted.

Civic founder Vinny Lingham, often referred to as the oracle, thinks making it to the $60,000 zone might be in the cards.

“Bitcoin looks primed to make a big break above $50k,” Lingham wrote just before the price surpassed the $50k handle. “Once it clears, it will likely test and break $60k quickly. We could find out which [altcoins] are uncorrelated, as there will likely be some carnage in the alt market, if such a big move materializes,” Lingham added.
