    Bitcoin could reach $150k by year's end: SunnySide Digital CEO

    Bitcoin prices (BTC-USD) are rallying after the highly anticipated halving event occurred on Friday. SunnySide Digital Founder and CEO Taras Kulyk joined Yahoo Finance to discuss the outlook for the cryptocurrency in the post-halving landscape. Kulyk notes that the rally in bitcoin prices this year was attributed to factors such as geopolitical instability and the introduction of spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that saw massive inflows. Since the halving, he points out that new protocols have launched, driving "developer and transaction fee" values for mining companies. According to Kulyk, this current halving demonstrated "the adoption, integration [of bitcoin] into overall global portfolios." With bitcoin increasingly being viewed as "a supplement to gold" in various global markets, he describes it as "a safe-haven asset." Kulyk foresees bitcoin prices potentially reaching the $100,000 to $150,000 threshold by the end of 2024.

    Bitcoin mining still profitable post-halving: Fireblocks CEO

    The highly anticipated bitcoin (BTC-USD) halving took place on Saturday, April 20, a process in which the reward for bitcoin miners is reduced by half. This event which happens once every four years operates to control the number of bitcoins in circulation. Fireblocks CEO Michael Shaulov joins Yahoo Finance to discuss the implications of this event for bitcoin miners. Shaulov notes that bitcoin mining activity is continuing, with many miners "investing" in the belief that they will be compensated due to the halving event. He explains that there are two primary sources of rewards for bitcoin miners: "solving a puzzle... that secures the bitcoin network" and navigating the fees that users are willing to pay for bitcoin transactions. When asked about the potential integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in bitcoin mining, Shaulov states that given the current Bitcoin prices, "this is still quite profitable for miners." He does not believe that AI poses "a hedge" for bitcoin miners at the moment. As regulatory frameworks become more robust and spot bitcoin ETFs continue to gain traction, Shaulov anticipates the investor base could expand and drive prices upward across the cryptocurrency landscape.
