Experts See Price of Ether Reaching Almost $20K by 2025
The “Finder Cryptocurrency Predictions 2021” which was updated Monday predicts that the price of ether will be nearly $20K by 2025 according to 35 experts on Finder’s cryptocurrency panel. The report says:
By 2025, the panel expects Ethereum to hit $19,842 on average.
The highest forecast came from Bitbull Capital COO Sarah Bergstrand who believes that the price of ether would be $100,000 by 2025. “We are likely to see major upgrades to the Ethereum network this year, and those can be expected to push the price higher,” she explained.
One of the most bearish forecasts came from UNSW associate professor Elvira Sojli who predicted that ETH will end 2025 at just $1,850.
The report continues:
The majority of panellists (59%) say now is the time to buy ethereum, while 28% say ‘hodl’ and 13% say it’s time to sell.
As for the price prediction for the year 2021, the report notes that the “Panellists predict that the price of Ethereum will hit $4,512 on average by the end of the year. That’s a 234% increase from December’s end-of-year prediction of $1,351.”
One of the highest forecasts came from YAP Global founder and CEO Samantha Yap who noted that the price of ether would be $10,000 at the end of this year, emphasizing that “once BTC is mass adopted, ETH will be next on people’s list.”
Paul Ennis, a lecturer and assistant professor at the University College of Dublin, arrived at the same forecast of $10K for ETH this year, “arguing ethereum is highly undervalued and has far more uses than bitcoin.”
LMAX Group’s cryptocurrency strategist, Joel Kruger, gave a more moderate forecast of $2,000. He is also convinced of “ethereum’s potential, viewing the currency as the major hub of innovation on the blockchain.” He described that “As crypto adoption continues, most of that innovation will therefore be hosted on Ethereum, which we expect will translate into a much higher valuation.”
The panelists include Bitriver CEO Igor Runets; Thomson Reuters technologist Joseph Raczynski; Okcoin COO Jason Lau; Etoro analyst and senior account manager Simon Peters; Consensys head economist Lex Sokolin; Coinmama CEO Sagi Bakshi; Unocoin CEO Sathvik Vishwanath; and Origin Protocol co-founder Josh Fraser.
