Future price prediction of ETH
According to Joseph Raczynski, a blockchain enthusiast and founder of Joe Technologist, ETH has the largest community in the crypto spheres and thus, it can reach to $1200 this year once the volatility is reduced. Trading Beasts predicted that ETH has potentials to reach $908 by the end of this year and this is pretty much an optimistic review. Many crypto analysts believe that by 2020, crypto market volatility will get reduced largely and thus, it can cause a major high in the values of cryptos. Accordingly, it is assumed that in the first quarter of 2020, ETH can trade around $2100 and in 5 years, it can be around $3844.
ETH is called the queen of cryptocurrencies with Bitcoin as the king. ETH is largely expanding its community and provides a great platform for many other cryptos. Thus, in the upcoming years, its investors will gradually rise, and it too can spike up largely. It all depends on the volatility of the crypto market, so far the stability in the value of ETH is concerned.
