Cardano (ADA) will trade by the end of 2022 have generated a lot of speculative interest, especially in light of the anticipated Vasil hard fork.
53 cryptocurrency and Web3 fintech specialists collectively forecast that Cardano’s price will trade at $0.63 by the end of 2022, down from their earlier January forecast of $2.79. Looking further off, the panel predicts that ADA will end 2025 at $2.93 and end 2030 at $6.54, according to the findings of a Finder survey that was given access to on July 15.
The expert group indicated that ADA would end 2022 at $2.79, which is now closer to their forecast for the coin’s anticipated value in 2025. This prediction was made before the market fall in January.
They also expect a major decline in its worth over the course of the following ten years. The forecast for 2030, which is currently $6.54, is far more conservative than the one for that year issued in January 2022, which was $58.04.
Paul Levy, a senior professor at the University of Brighton, predicts that the value of ADA will be worth $0.5 by the end of the year and $5 by the end of 2025.
“As a native token of a proof-of-stake blockchain with some firm inventor foundations, there is still a lot of potential in Cardano to challenge and even overtake Ethereum. Proof of stake is likely the future of most if not all crypto in the future. Cardano, despite current volatility, is well placed,” he said.
In the meantime, 26% of the panel thinks that the time is right to sell ADA, while 26%, including the PLAYN founder, think that it is right to acquire ADA. He predicts it will hit $1.50 in December because to “high uptake, increased features, and a diligent management team that is following a quality first approach.”
The Vasil hard fork upgrade will increase Cardano’s usability, according to 51% of the panel. While 37% of the panelists believe that the price of ADA will increase as a result of this.
However, 20% of the panelists think that this would result in a long-term price increase, while only 17% think that this will only result in a short-term increase.
Fintech experts disagree over Cardano
The Vasil Hard Fork, according to Dr. Dimitrios Salampsis, the director of Swinburne University of Technology, would boost efficiency and optimize processes since more data will be able to fit into each smart contract transaction.
“This is expected to improve speed of transactions and settlements and reduce transaction fees (compared to high gas fees in Ethereum). Moreover, I believe that the Vasil Hard Fork will increase the utility value and boost more innovative projects utilizing smart contracts.”
However, based on studies of the price of other tokens after a fork, Kevin He, the Chief Operating Officer of Cloudtech Group, predicts that the Vasil hard fork would cause a price decline in the near future.
Additionally, he belongs to the minority of 17% who think that if Ethereum’s “sharding” occurs, Cardano’s competitive advantage from the Vasil Hard Fork will be irrelevant.
“Cardano’s advantage of fast transactions will no longer exist after the launch of ETH 2.0. And due to the efficiency problem of the development team causing Cardano to significantly lag behind other competitors in smart contracts and dapp compatibility, coupled with the bear market blow we are not optimistic about the value of Cardano in the future.”
He’s opinion is disagreed with by 37% of the panelists, and the remaining panelists are skeptical of whether Cardano will maintain its competitive edge going forward (46% ).
