“After the cryptocurrency fallout this year (Terra, FTX, Alameda, 3AC), this idea of transparency and decentralization is taking hold. Bitcoin and Ethereum are the best manifestations of that in the crypto world,” she said.

When asked if she believes Bitcoin could reach six figures by the end of the decade, Wood answered, “In fact, we’re a little higher than ($500,000) in our base case for the year 2030. And in our bull case, much higher,” she said.

The CEO stated that even after the FTX collapse, Bitcoin and Ethereum went about with their business as usual. “So, FTX, Celsius, Three Arrows Capital. If you look at what happened to Bitcoin, the network, and Ethereum, the network, they really didn’t skip a beat. All transactions were completed. All smart contracts opened and closed,” she summed it up.
