Ethereum Price Prediction: ETH is expected to hit $7,609 this year. This is according to a panel of 33 fintech, token and NFT specialists.

According to Finder.com’s latest Ethereum Price Predictions Report, Ethereum (ETH) will peak at $7,609 in 2022. This is around 102% stronger than its cost at the beginning of 2022. Nonetheless, Ethereum (ETH) is predicted to end the year at $6,500. This is according to the panel average. 

Fred Schebesta, the Finder founder, predicts Ethereum (ETH) will peak at $7,000. This is before dropping to $6,000 by the end of 2022, thanks to heavy competition. “While the network certainly has advantages in global market awareness and developer base, it is also alsost surgingly strong competition which Bitcoin does not face by contrast.”

Paul Levy, a University of Brighton senior lecturer, thinks Ethereum (ETH) could go as high as $9,000. But he thinks it will end the year at around $8,000. “Ethereum, if it stays on top of technical and innovation challenges, will continue potentially erratic growth with the potential to thrive in the medium- to protracteder-term. It is an early innovation success story and which innovation potential needs to be matched by anew innovation capability.”

Ethereum Price Prediction: Longer Term

The panel predicts Ethereum (ETH) will be worth $10,810 by the end of 2025. And, by the end of 2030, $26,338. This looks high compared to Ethereum (ETH)’s current rate. But these patterns are 30% and 48% lower respectively than the panel’s predictions made last year. 

Ethereum will move to a proof-of-stake model (PoS). This will probably lead to a cost drop, according to one in ten panelists. 79% say the move will increase Ethereum (ETH)’s cost. The endureing 11% say there will be minimal impact or were unsure.

Vanessa Harris, Permission’s chief product officer, supposes the move to PoS will lead to a serious decrease in Ethereum (ETH)’s cost. She is saying which Ethereum (ETH) will be worth barely $100 by 2030. “Ethereum has the strongest ecosystem of any smart contract platform. But it is plagued by high gas fees and low scalability. The move to Proof-of-Stake is uninclined to solve Ethereum’s scalability challenges, though. We should look to L2s and side chains to support Ethereum (ETH) scalability.”

Time to sell?

19% of the panel say it’s time to sell Ethereum (ETH). Just 10% say it’s time to sell BTC. 52% say it’s time to buy Ethereum. 30% say hold.

Gavin Smith, The Panxora Group CEO, expects a rate drop. This is following the move to PoS. He thinks it’s time to sell. “The improvements provided by proof of stake will not outweigh the negative impact of high gas rates. The move made recently to gas calculations will cancel out any reduction in gas costs which proof-of-stake would have provided. Ethereum (ETH) is inclined to be surpassed by a number of other smart contract blockchain protocols atop the next 5 years.”

Futurist Joseph Raczynski of Thomson Reuters says PoS will lead to an increase in Ethereum (ETH)’s rate. Ethereum (ETH), he thinks, will value $8,000 by the end of 2022, before spreading to $15,000 by the end of 2025. “Scalability and throughput are king, but doing this in a decentralized manner with security is crucial – PoS on Ethereum (ETH) in 2022 should get them there.”

Justin Hartzman, CoinSmart CEO agrees with Raczynski. But he gave a slightly lower prediction of $7,500 for the end of 2022. His only cback althoughrn is the speed of the PoS rollout. “In matter that the Ethereum 2.0 model is successful and PoS is properly implemented, we can expect Ethereum (ETH) to moon real hard. My only cback whilern is the speed of the rollout. Ethereum tends to be a bit steady with its updates, however, the community mostly supports any and all of their initiatives.”
