Check out what the panel says about the future of stablecoins

How much will the value of cryptocurrency rise over the next decade?

In July 2022, our panel has high hopes for the value of 6 well-known cryptocurrencies. The panel predicts the coins will see an average increase of 23% by the end of 2022, 338% by 2025 and an increase of 1,080% by 2030 based on the value of the coins on 10 July 2022.

Our panel predicts that Ethereum (ETH) will see the most growth in 2022, with prices expected to rise by 41% between July and December 2022. At the other end of the spectrum are both Dogecoin (DOGE) and Binance Coin (BNB), with our panel seeing the value of both coins increasing by a pedestrian 13%.

Looking further down the road, the panel sees the price of Cardano (ADA) going up the most (513%) by 2025 but sees Bitcoin (BTC) performing best come 2030, with its price set to increase 1,411%. The panel is least in on DOGE's 2025 potential, seeing its price increasing by 172%. As for 2030, BNB should see its price increase the least at 646%.

Bitcoin price predictions

The Finder panel predicts the price of Bitcoin will hit a peak of US$35,484 in 2022 before closing 2022 at $25,473.

With eyes further toward the future, the panel sees the price of BTC skyrocketing, hitting an average value of $106,757 per BTC by 2025 and $314,314 by 2030.

What does the future hold for Terra?

In May 2022, the world looked on as Terra (LUNA) went from being worth around $120 to $0.02 in the space of 2 days. To remedy the situation, Terra's community decided to hard fork the LUNA chain and to airdrop former and current holders of the failed crypto with new LUNA tokens.

So we now live in a world with the original Terra Luna Classic (LUNC) and Terra (LUNA): LUNA 2.0. Unfortunately for those backing either of these tokens, our panel doesn't see them having a bright future.

Router Protocol CEO and co-founder Ramani Ramachandran said that the writing was on the wall for the downfall of Terra.

"LUNA should be a wake-up call to the industry and especially to the fawning media that understands very little about crypto and just parrots press releases. It was designed to fail, and apparently, some of the "smartest" people in the space could not see that coming."

When asked about the future prospects of LUNA 2.0, the panel believes its best days are already behind it. At the time of writing, LUNA is worth around $1.90. However, the panel sees LUNA dipping to just $0.84 by the end of 2022 before falling further to $0.46 by 2030.

As far as Terra Luna Classic is concerned, the panel sees LUNC as having no value going forward.

The majority of the panel say that there is no recovery for the token, with NDAX CEO Bilal Hammoud saying, "LUNA ecosystem lost any type of credibility after the incident. I believe platforms will delist Luna in the near future."

Bitwave CEO Patrick White is also out on LUNA for similar reasons. He added, "Do Kwon lost all faith from the community. LUNA doesn't have a future."

Can the fork save LUNA?

At this point, it probably comes as little surprise that the majority (80%) of the panel don't think Terra's hard fork revival plan will be successful. Just 2% think the move can save LUNA.

Should exchanges support LUNA 2.0 so quickly after LUNC's collapse?

The majority (56%) of the panel don't think that it was appropriate for exchanges to support the LUNA 2.0 token just weeks after the collapse of LUNA classic. Only 22% support the move.

Dr Iwa Salami, the co-director of the center of fintech at the University of East London, came down on the side of inappropriate, saying:

"It is vital that stablecoins are regulated if the credibility of the crypto industry is to be regained. If the main feature meant to guarantee stability in the space is the very source of its vulnerability, then that is a big problem that needs to be addressed and best so through regulation."

Okcoin COO Jason Lau sits on the other side of the argument saying that the move was appropriate. "In the wake of LUNA's collapse, we're noticing a flight away from algorithmic stablecoins towards fully collateralized ones. We could see more algorithmic stablecoins be challenged and return to the drawing board," he added.

Will regulators push for stablecoins to be fully collateralized?

Speaking of collateralization, 73% of the panel think the TerraUSD collapse will mean that regulators will demand that stablecoins be fully collateralized by non-cryptocurrency assets.

Other stablecoins

Another stablecoin in hot water is Tether, which saw a bank run (of sorts) in May 2022. The panel is fairly split on whether Tether's reserves are adequate to cover the number of USDT tokens in circulation, with 38% saying they do and 33% saying they do not.

What "backs" Tether's USDT is a topic of some conjecture. Tether claims that it's now partially backed by non-US government bonds but hasn't specified which ones.

This is something the majority of the panel believe poses a risk. But how much of a risk? Roughly a quarter (24%) say it's a big risk, 39% say it's a moderate risk and 32% say the risk is small.

For Dimitrios Salampasis, director and lecturer of fintech innovation and entrepreneurship at Swinburne University of Technology, the "lack of clarity and transparency is always risky".

CoinFlip founder and chairman Daniel Polotsky says that not backing USDT with dollars means that it runs the risk of losing its peg with price fluctuations:

"Tether should do a better job of being transparent with Web3 participants. With so much daily trading volume relying on USDT, Tether should be audited by a prominent accounting firm and release the results publicly. Tether should also only back each USDT with an actual dollar as the price of non-US government bonds can fluctuate and potentially break USDT's peg during price declines."

Will USDC take down USDT?

The overwhelming majority (78%) of the panel say that it's more of a case of when than if USDC will usurp USDT as the leading stablecoin.

With so many panel members seeing USDT being dethroned by USD Coin (USDC), it's not surprising that 59% say it's time for those using USDT to switch to USDC.

    What do you know and think about the new Kala coin

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      johnbasanesSeptember 18, 2018Staff

      Hi Kala,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Kala is a cryptocurrency built on a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain that will integrate
      seamlessly within the Symatri ecosystem and has multiple levels of value. The Kala
      economy is simple: 1) Members earn points for completing simple activities through our
      revolutionary CORE platform, 2) they transfer those points to Kala, 3) they use Kala in
      the Reach marketplace, which offers a vast array of products and services. Users can
      also earn Kala through traditional mining. An additional level of value comes from the
      decentralized, distributed network built through Kala that itself becomes an asset that
      can be leveraged for future endeavors as blockchain gains even more use and adoption
      across multiple industries. While we do not provide specific product recommendations, this is what we have currently. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie
