Since the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, hit the markets 10 years ago, the crypto space has been an active industry, with lots of new cryptos coming up and the market experiencing significant price movements. Basically, most people right now take crypto possessions as investments that they expect to cash in on in the future, and that triggers a lot of questions about which of the cryptos are really worth throwing money in.
Here, we take a look at the opinions derived from 10 panelists focusing on the future of the top 13 cryptocurrencies. The 13 cryptos include the top 10 largest by market cap, plus the three trending. The top 10 include BTC, XRP, ETH, BCH, EOS, XLM, LTC, TRX, BSV, and ADA. The three trending cryptos include Binance Coin (BNB), Monero (XMR), and Ethereum Classic (ETC).
The panel was made up of experts from various fields in the crypto industry. They include Jimmy Song, Craig Cobb, Alisa Gus, Fred Schebesta, Co-Pierre Georg, Brendan Markey-Towler, Joseph Raczynski, Ajay Kumar Shrestha, Genson Glier, and Sarah Bergstrand.
In terms of price change, the panelists predict a significant surge for BNB, ETC, ADA, EOS, and TRX, all of which are expected to score upwards of 250% price surge by 31st December 2019. Of these, EOS takes the mantle with a cool 727%. The rest are predicted to also achieve over 40% price increase each, with XRP coming last with 49%.
However, and while ADA is projected to increase by 260% by December 31, the panels predict that the crypto will be the biggest gainer at 54% by 1st March 2019. The rest of the 10 cryptos will gain, but at much lesser margins, with the highest being TRX at just 10%.
While the price margins for most cryptos are generally expected to increase, their market caps are expected to follow suit. According to the panelists, ETH will achieve about 179% increase, making it the biggest gainer by 31st December 2019. BTC will follow at 95%, BCH at 51%, while BSV is expected to shed off by -5%. With that, Bitcoin will retain position one at $118.8 billion, while ETH, BCH, and BSV will take positions 2,3, 4 at 31.23 billion, 3.0 billion, and 1.1 billion respectively.
