Tyler Winklevoss, the co-founder of crypto exchange Gemini and notable Bitcoin (BTC) billionaire, recently delivered a lofty price prediction for the leading digital currency.

In a tweet posted on Wednesday, Winklevoss emphasized that if Bitcoin breaks the psychological resistance at $10,000, it will definitely move on to break $15,000.

When pushed by Twitter users as to why these two price points would be related, Winklevoss stated, “It’s a cheap asset until it disrupts gold, however, the 2nd time breaking 10k will make it feel more ‘real’ to many people.”

Winklevoss has compared Bitcoin to gold in the past. As we previously reported, Winklevoss stated that he believes that Bitcoin will be so successful that its ability to act as a store of value will push it beyond current commodities, including gold.

“Our thesis around Bitcoin’s upside remains unchanged. We believe bitcoin is better at being gold than gold. If we’re right, then over time the market cap of bitcoin will surpass the [~$7 trillion] dollar market cap of gold,” Winklevoss has said.

Bitcoin is currently up 3.35% on the day to $9,622, bringing its market cap to $171 billion.
