According to U.Today, CNBC show Squawk Alley anchor Carl Quintanilla jokingly tweeted that hedge fund manager James Altucher had four days to fulfill his predictions on the price of Bitcoin. Bitcoin needs to soar 13788% in four days for James Altucher's predictions to materialize. In 2017, Altucher told CNBC that Bitcoin could rise to $ 1 million by 2020, when the price was about $ 11,000. In a May 2019 interview with Kitco, he still stated that the $ 1 million forecast could be achieved, but he delayed the deadline by a few years. "Will it reach $ 1 million in 2020? Maybe. Will it be 2021? Or 2022? Who knows."
