Predictions put Ethereum at $14,000 by 2030

Ethereum Cryptocurrency

After the crash earlier this year that took Ethereum (ETH) below $1,000, analysts are now predicting a strong rally.

Ethereum price above $10,000 by 2030

Some analysts, after predicting Ethereum’s price at $600 by the end of the year, are now predicting that the cryptocurrency could end 2022 above $1,700, then rise to new highs by 2025 and break above $14,000 by 2030.

Ethereum climbed back above $1,500 on Tuesday, giving a clear bullish signal after falling in the first six months of the year. According to some, this increase is mainly due to the planned September release of “The Merge“.

On the other hand, Ethereum has always been considered the most attractive digital currency for its uses in NFTs and dApps. At the beginning of the year, there were many who predicted that the blockchain-based currency founded by Vitalik Buterin would be trading at $10,000 in a few months.

Thereafter, market conditions, with the collapse of major cryptocurrencies and the associated decline of the NFT and DeFi market, severely affected the asset, which lost more than 70% of its value.

According to many experts, the volatility of Ethereum, especially in light of the protocol switch from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake, will be very high, even higher than that of Bitcoin itself. There is a lot of expectation to see what changes the new update will bring and if it will affect, at least initially, the security and reliability of the network.

According to experts from the analysis firm Finder, Ethereum will exceed $1,700 by the end of the year. However, analysts at Finder say that Ethereum could also drop to as low as $675  before its rapid recovery begins.

Finder Analyst Commentary on ETH Value

Other experts predict that Ethereum could even exceed $2,000, just before the new upgrade.

In the report compiled by Finder analysts, it reads:

 Our panel’s predictions for ETH going forward have dropped significantly since early 2022. 

Forecasts earlier in the year predicted that Ethereum would top $30,000 by 2030. By April, estimates were lowered to $23,000 and then $14,000.

Digital Capital Management CEO Ben Ritchie, speaking about ETH future prices, especially in view of the Merge, explained:

“Since Ethereum’s correlation with Bitcoin remains high, we can speculate that if the merger occurs before the end of the year, its price may decouple. However, the external economic factor is vital, bringing headwinds to short-term price action.”

But there are those who make even more optimistic predictions about the future of Ethereum, such as analysts at cryptocurrency issuer Coinpedia, who predicted that ETH could end 2022 between $6,500 and $7,500 if the same bullish rally that began in mid-2021 were to continue into the second. half of the year, and if the Merger confirms the expected improvements in network efficiency.

Ian Balina, the founder of analytics firm Token Metrics, said:

“I think Ethereum can go to $8,000. Ethereum is the clear leader, but other blockchains are onboarding new users at a faster rate due to Ethereum’s high gas fees and slow transaction speed.”
