JPMorgan Says This Is The 'Fair Value' Of Bitcoin: Why Analysts Say BTC Is Going 28% Higher

Zinger Key Points
  • JPMorgan placed Bitcoin's "fair value" at $38,000, 28% higher than its current market price. 
  • Bitcoin plunged to $17,708.62 earlier this month.

In a recent note, JPMorgan Chase & Co JPM said that Bitcoin's BTC/USD fair price is 28% higher than its current level. 

What Happened: JPMorgan's strategist Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou said in a note, "The past month's crypto market correction looks more like capitulation relative to last January/February, and going forward, we see upside for Bitcoin and crypto markets more generally." 

JPMorgan has said that the present cryptocurrency market has been hurt more than other alternative investments, such as private equity, private debt, and real estate. As prices have started moving back up, the investment bank suggests there's still more room for the crypto market to rebound.

Bitcoin plunged to $17,708.62 on June 18, and has since moved 20% higher. Although, the apex crypto remains 69% below its record peak of $68,789.63.
