The analysts are predicting Bitcoin to reach the $20,000 level very soon if the rally continues like this. Such a huge increase is going to benefit investors who have been trusting and holding Bitcoin for a long time. One prominent one among all is Grayscale as it is now having more than half a million Bitcoin.
