Cryptocurrency markets have been full of volatility and uncertainty in recent weeks. With Bitcoin prices falling last week, most other cryptocurrencies have followed suit by showing double-digit price losses in a matter of days. Ethereum is down 10.48% in the last seven days, XRP is down 7% and ApeCoin is down 35%. Also, the current rate of fear and greed is in extreme fear at a minimum of 18!
However, even with the unpleasant market conditions, several analysts expect this year to close with a high note for most cryptocurrencies. Let’s look at several Finder price predictions for Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, and ApeCoin for 2022, 2025, and 2030.
Bitcoin price forecast for 2022, 2025, 2030
According to a report last month by Finder, which surveyed 35 fintech experts, including Origin Protocol founder Josh Fraser, CoinJar CEO Asher Tan, and University of Canberra senior professor John Hawkings, the price Bitcoin is set at a new all-time high of $ 81,680 by the end of 2022.
Also, bullish forecasts estimate that the BTC will be worth more than $ 179,000 in 2025 and about $ 420,000 in 2030. According to the previous panel, you are very wrong if you thought BTC would stop at $ 100,000. The cryptocurrency is still in its infancy and Bitcoin will surpass $ 100,000 in 2025.
According to 50% of the panel of fintech experts, an exciting prediction is that another cryptocurrency will end up overthrowing BTC due to its lack of utility.
Not all panelists are as optimistic about Bitcoin, and John Hawkings predicts a Bitcoin price of $ 5,000 by the end of 2025 and $ 100 by 2030, being surpassed by Ethereum at some point in the next 5-7 years.
Ethereum price forecast for 2022, 2025, 2030
According to a report released last week by Finder, this time consulting 36 fintech experts, Ethereum will reach a new all-time high of $ 6,872 this year, and also predicts a price of $ 11,000 for 2025 and $ 23,000 for 2030. Very bullish. forecasts, at least.
According to 35% of panelists, the most bullish impact on the price of Ethereum will be its deflationary tokenomics, and some like Joseph Raczynski of Thomson Reuters predict that the year-end value of ETH will exceed $ 8,000.
“The merger, an update of Ethereum, should take place this summer. This could have an explosive effect on the token. People have been waiting for this for years. It should be much safer, 99% more energy efficient and deflationary. the trifecta of potential, as a leading blockchain, I don’t know what it would be. “
Another significant bullish driver for the price of Ethereum, according to 29% of panelists, is the relatively low power consumption of Ethereum, which is the result of the hybrid consensus mechanism of work test and participation test of Ethereum, which works in parallel.
Ethereum will switch to a participatory test consensus mechanism with the next merger, reducing its power consumption by several orders of magnitude.
XRP price forecast for 2022, 2025 and 2030
In a report released by Finder last week, after polling 36 fintech experts, the prediction is that XRP could be worth $ 2.55 in December 2022, assuming Ripple resolves or wins its lawsuit with the SEC. Other forecasts for 2025 put the price of XRP at $ 3.61 and $ 4.98 for 2030.
As to whether now is a good time to buy or sell XRP, the forecast was relatively balanced, with 23% saying it is a good idea to buy XRP, 45% saying they maintain their current positions and 32% saying they sell.
According to University of Sussex finance professor Carol Alexander, if XRP wins its lawsuit with the SEC, the price of the cryptocurrency could reach $ 2.50. At the same time, if lost, the price could drop to $ 0.50.
If XRP wins its lawsuit with the SEC, it will be the first significant step for Ripple to replace the current SWIFT system, creating a significant bullish rally for the cryptocurrency asset.
Not everyone is so optimistic about XRP, with Matthew Harry, head of funds at DigitalX Asset Management, saying that XRP will eventually lose most of its value. According to Harry:
“The XRP token is worth nothing but speculation. The underlying technology is fantastic, but the token itself has no use.
ApeCoin price forecast for 2022, 2025, 2030
Last week, Finder also surveyed 36 fintech experts for its ApeCoin price analysis report. According to Finder, APE is expected to end the year at $ 27 and drop to $ 25 in 2025. Surprisingly, price forecasts for APE are not as bullish as for Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP.
Although some panelists like Dimitrios Salampasis, a FinTech professor at Swinburne University of Technology, have been more optimistic about ApeCoin in the short term, predicting a price of $ 45 by the end of 2022, APE’s long-term outlook was less optimistic. with Salampasis predicts a $ 10 price target for 2030.
The panelists agreed that Yuga Labs, the founders of ApeCoin and the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection, are the blue-chip of the NFTs, especially since their purchase of CryptoPunks. The ApeCoin ecosystem has high potential assuming that the team can develop a playable Metaverse where thousands of users can interact with each other.
However, on the bearish side, according to the report, 75% of panelists believe that APE will become another meme currency, while only 20% think it will be of genuine use. The rest, 5%, were unsure about the long-term outcome of APE.
Clearly, most price forecasts for long-term periods of 5 to 10 years are incredibly bullish. Although the current market situation is bleak and prices are very volatile, the long-term sentiment remains optimistic.
With the long-term trend of cryptography still positive, the best trading strategy that can be employed is the average cost of the dollar.
Leaving aside a certain amount each month to invest in Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP and any other top 100 cryptocurrencies is the easiest and least stressful way to take advantage of market volatility and at the same time reduce the overall cost base . for your investment.
