Adam Back told the media, “Conservative. I’d say bitcoin likely sees a $1 trillion market cap within 2 years, probably sooner. $1 trillion is about BTC $50k.”

For Adam Back’s prediction to come true, the market will need to witness an increase of around 400 percent in the next two years. In October 2018, bitcoin hit a market cap of $114 billion.
