According to Heisenberg Capital founder and Keiser Report host Max Keiser, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) would soon rally to $28,000. He believes the all-time high of BTC at $20,000 likely wont act as resistance.
Keiser, who is an early investor in unicorn Kraken and $100-million-worth Bitstamp, said:
The $20,000 level for #Bitcoin wont pose any resistance. We wont see any resistance till $28,000. A brief pullback then the assault on $100,000 begins with renewed vigor.
In the past 12 days, the price of Bitcoin has increased from $9,200 to $12,000, marking the highest price in over a year. The cryptocurrency market is benefiting from the strong momentum of Bitcoin and Ethereums Ether.
Keiser reaffirms his $100,000 Bitcoin prediction
Throughout the Bitcoin rally in the past month, Keiser has continuously reaffirmed his position on the medium-term trend of BTC. He expects BTC to eventually surpass $28,000, and shoot for a new all-time high at six figures.
In late July, when the price of Bitcoin first broke out of $11,000, Keiser said a six-figure BTC is likely. Since then, BTC has confirmed $10,400 as a key support level, maintaining its momentum. He said:
$28,000 is in play before we see a pullback - and then were heading to 6-figures.
But on Aug. 2, as Cointelegraph reported, Bitcoin saw its first major pullback since mid-June. The price of BTC fell abruptly from $12,000 to $10,500 within 15 minutes, causing $1 billion to get liquidated across the entire market.

Keiser and other high-profile appear to be unfazed by the move and generally consider the price action as a shakeout. Both over-leveraged and low-leverage long contracts were flushed out in less than an hour, causing the market to cool off.
