On Tuesday (September 3), Co-Founder and CEO of BitMEX, the world's largest crypto derivatives exchange, came back from his summer holiday and made the bold prediction that the price of one Bitcoin (BTC) would soon reach $20K.
Shortly after his "Tangle in Taipei" with Dr. Nouriel Roubini, seemed to stop have completely stopped tweeting. Then after around 20 days, he sent out this tweet to say that he had gone on holiday and that he would return in September:
I traded in a yacht for the jungle. See y’all in September. pic.twitter.com/DsmQuPyCwa— Arthur Hayes (@CryptoHayes) July 31, 2019
Then, a little earlier today, Hayes sent out the following tweet to say that he had returned from his holiday in Peru and that people attending next week's Invest: Asia 2019 conference (September 11-12; held in Singapore) should try to keep Wednesday night free:
Did y’all miss me? I’m back from deepest darkest Peru, ready to cash checks. For those of you in Singapore next week for Invest Asia keep Wednesday night free. We will be two-steppin’ straight to $20k. pic.twitter.com/R0UYHinuHw— Arthur Hayes (@CryptoHayes) September 3, 2019
What is interesting about this tweet is that Hayes is currently not scheduled to speak at this event, but it is possible that he intends to make an announcement next week that he feels will help the Bitcoin price to go up.
Oh well, we'll just have to wait and see...
