Bitcoin fell below $ 50,000 on Friday. The pioneering cryptocurrency is currently trading around $ 49,405 at 11:10 GMT. In the past 24 hours, the coin lost 8.9%, a huge loss for traders and investors.
However, the maker of stock-to-flow models, PlanB, has said that he is relieved that the coin has lost more than 22% in just a week. Saying that Bitcoin is still acting “like clockwork” with regard to their price predictions.
“I am a bit relieved,” says PlanB
In a tweet on Friday, analyst PlanB noted that the price dip has steered to less than $ 48,000 BTC below its target, as determined by its stock-to-flow model. As a result, Bitcoin is no longer ‘front-running’ stock-to-flow.
After the benchmark cryptocurrency traded above the required level, the quantitative analyst had suggested that the currency’s price movement was becoming inorganic.

“I am a little relieved that the price of BTC is now back below the s2f model value,” he wrote in a conversation with Saifedean Ammous, the author of The Bitcoin Standard, who called PlanB’s predictions “astonishing”.
“For a moment I thought that the people at the front were running the model and that the super cycle had started. Now we’re back to normal… like clockwork, ”added PlanB.
Amazing even to me. By the way, I am a little relieved that the price of the btc is now back below the s2f model value.

The stock-to-flow and stock-to-flow (S2F) cross-asset (S2FX) alternately call for an average BTC / USD price of $ 100,000 or $ 288,000 between now and 2024. This is the super cycle that will be expected.
PlanB said it believed Bitcoin would not stop at $ 100,000, which is what it should reach this year.
“Bitcoiners are often too optimistic in the bull market and too bearish in the bear market! I don’t think we’re supercycling this time either, ”podcast host Stephan Livera responded to Ammous.

“Now that Bitcoin is below $ 50k again, I think it’s time for @APompliano to tweet $ 1k milestones on the way down, like he did on the way up.”

Pompliano responded: “Bitcoin is up 600% last year. Gold is up 3% last year. Don’t tweet again until gold can beat inflation, Peter! “
However, several factors are causing the current decline.
