Bitcoin bulls have long been looking towards its stock-to-flow model as an accurate pricing model that forecasts that the crypto will see a tremendous near-term upside, with the model suggesting that a movement towards $100,000 could be looming on the horizon.

This simple model has drawn the ire of Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, who recently called bullish BTC forecasts "Post-hoc rationalized bullshit," going on to slam BTC's S2F model.

These comments drew a scathing critique from Blockstream CEO and co-founder Adam Back, who rebutted Buterin's claims by insinuating that Ethereum is highly centralized.

In a recent tweet, Buterin called the majority of Bitcoin price predictions "Bullshit" while referencing screenshots of multiple speculative news reports regarding BTC's future price prospects.

In a response to a question from Pierre Rochard regarding articles surrounding BTC's S2F model, Buterin explained that all "That stuff" is part of the 95% of "Ad hoc bullshit" he referenced in his original tweet.

In response to an article detailing Buterin's comments, Adam Back - a prominent Bitcoiner and the CEO/co-founder of Blockstream - explained in a response that Buterin's altcoin can't have a S2F model because its stock is undefined and its flow is adjusted ad hoc on the "Whims of a few programmers."

Back further went on to say "What's not to believe" about the bullish S2F model, noting that it seems to be logical.

If the forecast offered by this model does come to fruition, it is possible that Bitcoin will rally up towards $100,000 in the coming several years.
