Arthur Hayes, the co-founder of BitMEX, has expressed a highly optimistic outlook for Bitcoin and Ethereum, predicting that Bitcoin will eventually reach $1 million and Ethereum will surge to $100,000. His bullish stance comes at a time when both cryptocurrencies are experiencing a bear market, with Ethereum trading at $2,097 and Bitcoin at $37,083 as of today.

Hayes attributes his predictions to the ongoing debasement of global currencies. He believes that this economic backdrop will elevate Bitcoin and Ethereum to the status of crypto's reserve assets, setting them apart from other cryptocurrencies which he views as less significant.

On Friday, Hayes reiterated his confidence in the two leading cryptocurrencies, foreseeing a 4,669% increase in Ethereum's value. He also maintained his belief in Bitcoin's potential to hit the $1 million mark. This came after a week where Bitcoin saw an increase of seven percent in its value to $37,112.53, and Ethereum rose twelve percent to $2,058.51.

Hayes also sees potential in layer-one blockchains like Solana despite their struggles during the current market downturn. He suggests they could offer significant returns but questions their ability to outdo Ethereum in areas like active developers, DApp activity, or Total Value Locked (TVL). He described these alternatives as overhyped and unlikely to surpass Ethereum's dominance.

In addition to his forecasts for Bitcoin and Ethereum, Hayes predicts a value surge in decentralized applications (DApps) and their associated tokens. While acknowledging the increased risks involved, he hints at the substantial returns they could yield for investors willing to navigate the volatile crypto landscape.
