Experts Speak: Leaders’ take on AI, inclusion, and innovation

We spoke to industry leaders and experts on what’s current with AI, data, and innovation, and focused on gaining advice from women on leadership in tech last month. Here are some key snippets from those interviews.

As we wrapped our monthly theme for March, focused around women in technology, we gathered varied insights from IT experts and leaders on the state of female leadership in tech, what inspires inclusion for them the most, and

Apart from this focus, we also interviewed various industry leaders on a multitude of current conversations such as creating a culture of data privacy, newer Al qualms on accountability and trust, leveraging Al in the insurance and CX space, and innovation in payments and trade.

Bitcoin Hovers Around New All-Time High, Experts Eye Bullish Future: ‘A Perfect Setup’

Bitcoin Hovers Around New All-Time High, Experts Eye Bullish Future: ‘A Perfect Setup’

Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) flirted with new all-time highs around the $69,000 level Tuesday morning, returning to prices last seen in November 2021.

CoinMarketCap showed Bitcoin hitting a new all-time high of $68,995.53 just after 10 a.m. ET Tuesday, while other platforms such as Coinbase show Bitcoin crossing the $69,000 mark. Bitcoin price calculations vary slightly from platform to platform.

This surge has ignited a firestorm of predictions from industry experts, many of whom foresee a future brimming with possibilities for the world’s leading cryptocurrency.

Speaking with Benzinga, analysts attribute the recent surge to a confluence of factors, including increased demand from institutional investors and the introduction of several Bitcoin exchange-traded funds.

“Bitcoin has crossed the chasm between retail and professional investors,” said Matthew Hougan, CIO of Bitwise Asset Management.

“When you add in the halving, potential rate cuts, and the election, it’s a perfect setup,” he continued, hinting at potentially reaching even higher price points like $100,000 or even $200,000.

The Bitcoin ETF Catalyst: The launch of Bitcoin ETFs has also played a significant role.

Gracy Chen, managing director of Bitget, emphasized the significance of these investment vehicles.

“These are investment products that track the price of Bitcoin and trade on regulated exchanges, making it easier and cheaper for investors to gain exposure to Bitcoin,” Chen said.

Chen further predicts a potential high of $120,000-$140,000 for Bitcoin in this bull run.

Beyond Price, A Focus On Decentralization, Innovation: While many experts focus on price predictions, others such as Pratik Gauri, CEO of the 5ire (CRYPTO: 5ire) blockchain, highlighted the broader implications of Bitcoin’s rise.

“The ascent of BTC to new heights is not merely a milestone but a testament to the unwavering potential of decentralized finance,” he said.

Stijn Paumen, co-founder of Helio, echoed this sentiment: “This uptrend is not only attracting new users but is also paving the way for innovative applications of digital currencies.”

He pointed to the recent introduction of Ordinals on the Bitcoin blockchain, highlighting their potential to expand the utility of Bitcoin beyond just a speculative asset.

Caution Amid BTC Optimism: While experts paint a predominantly optimistic picture, some like Anndy Lian, an intergovernmental blockchain advisor, caution against undue exuberance.

“The Bitcoin market is showing signs of overheating and a potential correction,” he warned, advising investors to be prepared for volatility.

Looking Forward, A Dynamic Crypto Landscape: Despite the potential for short-term fluctuations, the long-term outlook for Bitcoin appears promising. With the upcoming Bitcoin halving, Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) upgrade and the possibility of spot Ethereum ETFs, the coming months hold significant potential for the entire cryptocurrency market.
