Bitcoin dipped in price on Wednesday, but experts predict it will recover soon. The world’s largest cryptocurrency dropped to just $9,093, representing a 2.4 percent drop in price over the 24-hour period to reach a market cap of $154.58 billion. It seems like the end of an otherwise-strong month for the coin, but it’s not over yet.

Bitcoin's price has steadily risen over the past seven days.

Gerszt is not alone in this analysis. David Drake, chairman and founder of investment firm LDJ Captial, said last month that Wall Street will come into the market in further droves, and predicted a rise to $30,000. Thomas Lee, co-founder and head of research at Fundstrat, has also predicted a rise to $25,000 as the United States tax day has now passed.

All eyes are on Bitcoin and related coins to see how they move in the marketplace. Bitcoin Cash, a fork of Bitcoin started in August 2017, is set to fork again on May 15 in a bid to increase block size. The change could bring new money to the cryptocurrency market.

It has yet to reach the dizzying heights of December, but the signs are good that Bitcoin will move past its previous all-time high at some point.
