In a recent interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box, Pompliano shared his insights on the current state of the crypto market, notably revealing that he sees Bitcoin dropping below $3,000 in the near-term.
This comes roughly a month after Pompliano first revealed his prediction that Bitcoin will experience an 85% decline from its all-time high before finding a bottom — implying a price floor of roughly $3,000.
Pompliano is not the only industry figure that is bearish in the short-term. Veteran technical trader Peter Brandt thinks Bitcoin will test the $3,000 psychological level and head towards $1,200 by the end of Q1 2019.
Bitcoin is currently trading $3,821 with a market cap of $66.6 billion. The leading digital currency traded as high as $4,300 earlier this week as the crypto market staged a major holiday rally.
