ApeCoin (APE) is expected to increase in value in 2022, jumping from its current price of roughly $20 to $27 by the end of 2022, according to Finder's panel of industry specialists.
While the panel thinks APE will end 2022 with a bang, they do expect its value to dip in 2025 to be worth $25, before rising and hitting $35 by the end of 2030.Co-founder of Finder Fred Schebesta comes in with a prediction of $20 for the close of 2022, which is a little below the panel's average. However, he does expect big things going forward, expecting it to hit the $50 mark by the end of 2025 and $100 to close out 2030.
"I think the founders of APE have high intentions to put APE to use. Probably not to buy land (as expected), but other things like buying merch when owning an ape is what it will be used for."
Technologist and futurist at Thomson Reuters Joseph Raczynski is also bullish on the token's future prospects:
"APE — could be absolutely humongous. Yuga Labs are the blue-chip of NFTs, now that they purchased CryptoPunks. Their ecosystem, using APE has the potential to be a game-changer for the Metaverse. They are all about community and this one is doing all the right things at the moment."
Senior lecturer at the University of Canberra John Hawkins sits on the other side of the fence and believes that APE is all hype and doesn't expect it to be worth anything come 2030.
"This is an even clearer case of a speculative bubble than Bitcoin and Ether. It does not even pretend to have any use."
Is APE just another memecoin?
Just a fifth (20%) of the panel see APE as having any utility in the future, with the vast majority viewing (75%) the token as just another memecoin.
Is now the time to buy, sell or hodl APE?
With 75% of the panel viewing APE as just another memecoin, it'll probably come as little shock that half the panel (50%) says that now is the time to sell your APE. A further 33% say to hold onto what you've got, while just 17% think now is the time to load up on ApeCoin.

Crypto Russian sanctions
The panel overwhelmingly (71%) believes that people will use crypto as a way of skirting sanctions against Russia, with just 17% thinking this will not happen.
