Our crypto prediction panel turns slightly bearish overall on six popular cryptocurrencies through the week of August 29.

Bitcoin failed to push through $25,000 after several attempts. This is a major resistance level that requires a strong catalyst. Macroeconomic factors still weigh down on the crypto market and it may take a while until we see a major move higher.

Finder’s crypto prediction panel turned neutral on Bitcoin in the most recent survey looking out through the week of August 29.

Finder’s cryptocurrency prediction panel comprises 15 experts in the field. Five of them rotate to share their predictions for the following two weeks on six major cryptocurrencies each week.

Finder’s experts turn slightly bearish

Our experts are slightly bearish on six popular cryptocurrencies, a shift from last week when the sentiment was neutral.

SolanaSlightly bearishSlightly bullish
OverallSlightly bearishNeutral

The panel’s outlook on Bitcoin (BTC) is neutral, a change from the week before when it was bullish. Bitcoin failed to reclaim $25,000. This means we could see Bitcoin move lower to $23,000 and potentially $21,000.

The panel’s verdict on Ethereum (ETH) is neutral, a change from the week before when it was bullish. Ether trades close to $1,900 after it failed to take $2,000. We could see the price retreat to $1,750 if it fails to move above $2,000 and hold there.

The panel’s outlook on Dogecoin (DOGE) is slightly bearish, the same as the week before. DOGE trades at $0.084 after clearing $0.075 through multiple attempts. The next level to watch is $0.09.

The panel’s verdict on Litecoin (LTC) is slightly bearish, the same as the week before. LTC trades above $60 throughout the month of August. The next target is $70, but this would likely require Bitcoin to clear $25,000.

The panel’s outlook on Ripple (XRP) is slightly bearish, the same as the week before. XRP failed to break through $0.4 once again. It needs a strong catalyst to break this level.

The panel’s verdict on Solana (SOL) is slightly bearish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bullish. SOL still trades in a narrow range of between $35 and $45.

Finder’s experts hold long-term bullish sentiment on Bitcoin

Finder asked 33 fintech specialists in July to offer price predictions for Bitcoin by year’s end. The majority predict Bitcoin will trade for around $25,473 at the end of 2022.
