According to U.Today, early Bitcoin developer Gavin Andresen questioned the views on the future transaction volume and price of the Satoshi Nakamoto blockchain. Satoshi Nakamoto stated in the Bitcoin white paper that he can only predict the two cases where Bitcoin (BTC) will be adopted, "after 20 years, either the transaction volume will be very large or there will be no." Gavin Andresen said that the price of Bitcoin will be the most important issue, not the transaction volume. He said the price could be really high. Andresen predicts that Bitcoin may be very expensive from 2021 to 2030, and only "gold believers" use it as a "niche coin".
