What's The Predicted Worth Of Bitcoin, Litecoin And Ethereum Coins By 2020, 2025, 2030?
How much are Bitcoin Litecoin Ethereum coins predicted to be worth by 2020, 2025, 2030? No one can predict the future, so perhaps the best way to answer this question is with another impossible question, like this one from Jyri Mkinen, who identifies on Quora as being part of Blockchain Evolution. He said: How much money is in the world? This question, How much are Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum coins predicted to be worth by 2020, 2025, 2030? originally appeared on Quora , the knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights. Answers byBill C. Riemers, Brian Schuster,Jyri Mkinen, Charles Guinn, Geno Jones, George Tung, Puneet Gupta, Akli Le Coq, Vincent Bressler, Lance Jepsen, Wolfgang Beer and Shakthi Kumar. Bill C. Riemers, works at Red Hat (2006-present) At one point I computed (that) if the entire worlds economy was replaced with bitcoins, then each bitcoin would be worth about $2 million dollars in current dollars. However, the fallacy of this argument is even if you believe the e-currency will replace all normal currency, there is absolutely no reason to believe it will be bitcoins that rule the day. There are huge technical flaws with bitcoins. Same with Ethereum. Really the same can be said of most of the e-currencies Ive tried. Sure maybe the blockchain is reasonably secure. But every time there is a fork in the code, there is a potential new ecurrency. How would you ever know if you were holding the best one? And who wants to take a day to resync their blockchain wallets each time Windows does an unexpected update? The trades are corrupt, as are many of the users. Really what we have in e-currencies is evil and corrupt. Just as bad as the Federal Reserve. Well actually worse. For all the horrors of the Federal Continue reading >>
Cryptocurrencies In 2018: What Can We Expect From Bitcoin And Ethereum?
Cryptocurrencies in 2018: what can we expect from Bitcoin and Ethereum? Icelands cheap energy has made it a hot spot for mining digital currencies such as bitcoin One of the hottest topics last year was the rise of cryptocurrencies, a form of digital money that can be stored without using a bank. Tech trends 2018: bitcoin, driverless cars and more The technology has gained popularity in recent years because in most cases cryptocurrencies are untraceable, The Daily Telegraph reports. This allows users to make purchases and investments anonymously. Theres only a finite amount of digital coins available. This has driven the value of some cryptocurrencies to five-figure sums. Here are some of the top virtual currencies of 2017 and how they might fare over the next 12 months: Bitcoin is currently the most valuable cryptocurrency on the market. Current prices for a single coin are priced at around 11,000, according to Coinranking . The cryptocurrency kicked off 2017 with a value of just 800 per coin before reaching its current highs. The coins substantial growth could continue this year, says Inverse, as some experts believe the digital coin could reach six-figure values. Thats because the digital currency is relatively scarce, with only 21 million coins available for people to purchase. But investor Jeremy Grantham says Bitcoin is currently experiencing a financial bubble and could plummet in value before the broad market peaks, reports CNBC . As one of the standout cryptocurrencies of the year so far, according to The Daily Telegraph , Ethereum passed the $1,000 (740) per coin mark in the first week of January. What sets it apart from Bitcoin is that Ethereums value is driven by its fast transaction speeds and hi-tech architecture, says Digital Trends ,while Bitcoins relat Continue reading >>
What Price Will Litecoin Hit In The Future?
Quote from: ahoenk on October 23, 2017, 10:15:11 AM Litecoin now is arround $50-60 it is still way too low and under valued if we see bitcoin price..it could be potentially spike to $200 atleast. To be honest lite coin has many die hard supporter and believer And thats what makes coin great like bitcoin. Look at dash. It is has a many die hard thats why price always goes up. I am not sure that we can say it is undervalued. In its early days LTC was pretty much THE altcoin. Now it has quite a lot of competition and may not ever maintain .02 btc like it used to. Plus there are so many ICO's right now. Lots of people may get burned by these. While it shouldn't make any difference to LTC, it could scare people away from all alts and not just the bad ones. Anything can happen but I wonder if one of the alts that has significantly different technology compared to BTC will replace LTC as crypto silver, if it hasn't already happened. Quote from: CryptoAdvizor on October 23, 2017, 10:12:40 AM i think it will go up to 200 to 300 dollars Maybe this will happen litecoin price might reach to $300. Though prediction is hard to match in the upcoming years. But for sure litecoin will hit big in the future. prediction can happen if real uses is really provided i think litecoin can make a huge support its just needed to showcase what would be the needs that this coin will offer to its investors, i still believe that time will come and 300$ will be achieved and more value to meet new ath.

Bitcoin Investors: You Need To Watch Litecoin
Bitcoin Investors: You Need To Watch Litecoin Bitcoin and cryptocurrency continues to see its value and price rise dramatically. Bitcoin remains king of this space, but as adoption comes it has some shortcomings that might hold it back. Litecoin, based on the same technology, but faster and cheaper can emerge as the more usable, and thus more valuable, currency. The crypto world continues to grow. The total market cap of crypto currencies now stands above $160 billion, up from near $90 billion at the start of August and up from $66 billion in mid-July during investor anxiety about the Bitcoin hard fork and/or a correction from the enormous rise in early 2017. At the head of the growth is Bitcoin, the original currency, and still the predominant one - holding a near 47% share of the total market cap, despite there being over 800 currencies now listed as open for trading on a variety of exchanges. Bitcoin itself has surpassed $4600 this month, double where it was trading at during the mid-July lull described above. Bull analysts see it hitting $5000 in the near future, while others are calling for $7500 or even $10,000 by years end. There are a few items that could hold Bitcoin from hitting that price point, including regulatory affairs from the SEC and other governing bodies. However, I dont see that as the main threat to Bitcoins adoption curve. Instead, that issue is its speed, cost, and anonymity. In analyzing these, and especially in the first two items, it becomes apparent that Litecoin - often called the silver to Bitcoins gold - is a potent adversary to Bitcoin and one that could be poised for global domination. First, a few fundamentals. Litecoin currently trades around $62, with a market cap above $3 billion. As such, its the 5th largest coin in the crypto worl Continue reading >>
The Logic Behind Why Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin, And Dash Keep Heading Higher
The Logic Behind Why Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin, and Dash Keep Heading Higher It's simple really: No one makes money if cryptocurrencies fall. What an incredible year 2017 was for cryptocurrencies. Having begun the year with a combined market cap of less than $18 billion, the aggregate value of all virtual currencies by year's end hit $613 billion, representing a better than 3,300% increase. Cryptocurrencies soared even more to begin 2018, hitting an all-time aggregate market cap high of $836 billion on Jan. 5, before losing a little bit of steam. These are essentially lifetime gains for investors that have been crammed into a span of just 52 to 53 weeks! Yet, what's really interesting is that bitcoin (CCC: BTC-USD), the world's most valuable and popular cryptocurrency, wasn't a primary focus in 2017. Rather than investors flocking to bitcoin, the goal among digital currency investors became to find the next bitcoin. As a result, a number of burgeoning cryptocurrencies ran circles around bitcoin last year . In particular, Ethereum (CCC: ETH-USD), Ripple (CCC: XRP-USD), Litecoin (CCC: LTC-USD), and Dash (CCC: DASH-USD) were veritably unstoppable, with respective gains of 9,383%, 36,564%, 5,260%, and 9,282%! You're giving these crypto catalysts too much credit How on Earth do virtual coins that have gained 5,000%, 10,000%, or possibly more, keep heading higher? What I can say with some certainty is that it's not entirely due to the emergence of blockchain technology , as much as Wall Street would like to believe so. Blockchain is the digital, distributed, and decentralized ledger tethered to virtual coins that's responsible for recording all transactions without the need for a financial intermediary, such as a bank. Unquestionably, blockchain does offer a number of poten Continue reading >>
Litecoin Price Predictions For 2018
So, where is Litecoin going in 2018? The truth is that nobody really knows. The best we can do is to make an educated guess based on both the past performance and the fundamentals. Therefore, whether it is the underlying technology or the price hike this year, we have reason to believe that Litecoin is expecting sunny days ahead of it. The flipside of that coin (pun intended) is that seeing as the technology is still very immature, there is no way of knowing how it will react when Uncle Sam lays down the law. To sum up, coming up with Litecoin price predictions for 2018 is a delicate topic that requires serious scrutiny from different angles, and no analysis can ever be exhaustive. Because of this, we would like to know if there is anything youd like to add? Was there something we missed? Or do you agree with our analysis? Whatever you think, let us know in the comments below, and please dont hesitate to shoot us a question if you have any. I know everyone is jumping on the 1K bandwagon but that seems to make the most sense as a target. One thing that is difficult to tell right now is because everything is so highly speculative. Without real world use cases (like buying starbucks with litecoin or transferring peoples medical records onto a blockchain) everything is a bit up in the air at the moment. I still believe Litecoin to be massively underrated and I have to believe that it should be worth 10% of what BTC is currently valued at (which would mean LTC at 1600$) I don't get why it isn't higher to be honest, they have Charlie Lee and everyone respects the dude. Also, I saw someone put it really well : Bitcoin = Savings Litecoin = Debit and if that's true then I think you could see Litecoin at 10K + in the future. Another thing to take into consideration is that milli Continue reading >>
Bitcoin Could Reach $10,000 By Christmas
Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own. The Bitcoin bubble is turning into a mania that could help it reach $10,000 by Christmas, before heading for another major correction. The peoples currency has passed several tests in recent weeks. One of them is the technical test, the crossing of price resistance marks like 5, 6 and 7,000 dollars. Thats a bullish sign for investors who look at price and volume charts to determine the direction of the market momentum. Another is the Wall Street test, the warming up of major financial players and financial exchanges to the digital currency, as discussed in a previous piece here . Thats a bullish sign for investors who look at market fundamentals, major developments that could boost the demand for the digital currency. A third test is the China test, the ability of the Bitcoin market to shake off a ban in trade of the product in one of the largest markets for digital currency in the world. Thats also a bullish sign for Bitcoin, as it proves to some that the digital currency can survive and thrive, even as big governments try to crush it. Meanwhile, the calling off of the Bitcoin hard fork removed a source of uncertainty surrounding cryptocurrency markets. These bullish signs have brought back the buzz for the digital currency, helping it get closer to the tipping point, the stage of the Rogers curve where the demand reaches a cascade. That sets the stage for higher prices, as there isnt enough supply to accommodate the soaring demand. Continue reading >>
Billionaire Hedge Fund Legend: Bitcoin Price Will Reach $40,000 In 2018
Billionaire Hedge Fund Legend: Bitcoin Price Will Reach $40,000 in 2018 Join our community of 10 000 traders on Hacked.com for just $39 per month. Billionaire hedge fund legend and former Fortress executive Mike Novogratz believes the bitcoin price will easily reach $40,000 by 2018. On CNBCs Fast Money, Novogratz expressed his optimism towards both bitcoin and Ethereum in the mid-term. Novogratz, who has predicted the price of bitcoin to achieve the $10,000 mark before the end of 2017, stated that bitcoin price will quadruple by the end of 2018, and the price of Ether, the native cryptocurrency of Ethereum, will triple in value. Bitcoin could be at $40,000 at the end of 2018. It easily could. Ethereum, which I think just touched $500 or is getting close, could be triple where it is as well, said Novogratz. Earlier this year, Novogratz officially retired from the traditional finance industry to solely focus on cryptocurrency investments. Over the past few months, Novogratz has had conversed with many institutional investors, that are already preparing to engage in bitcoin trading by the end of this year, upon the launch of CMEs bitcoin futures exchange. Novogratz noted that a big wave of institutional investors is coming to the bitcoin market across the world, with several major firms like $95 billion Man Group and Fidelity Investments, which manages over $3.2 trillion worth of assets, leading investors into the bitcoin market. Theres a big wave of money coming, not just here but all around the world. Whats different about these coins than other commodities there is no supply response here. So its a speculators dream in that as buying happens theres no new supply response that comes up. So every price move gets exaggerated. Its going to get exaggerated on the way up.

Litecoin: Could Litecoin Reach The Same High As Bitcoin?
Litecoin: Could Litecoin reach the same high as Bitcoin? Litecoin: Could Litecoin reach the same high as Bitcoin? LITECOIN is soaring in price, up 46 percent since the beginning of this week. But could the cryptocurrency reach the same high as rival bitcoin? Often thought of as the little brother to bitcoin , Litecoin is enjoying a sharp spike in price right now, increasing by 112.27 percent from its February 6 low of $106.94, according to CoinDesk. After surging 30 percent in one day on Wednesday, the digital currency is currently valued at $224.52 and is the worlds fifth most valuable digital currency by market capitalisation. In contrast, bitcoin remains the market leader at $10,129 with the highest market cap at $170 billion. Could Litecoin reach the same high as bitcoin? Michael LaVered of cryptocurrency news site Oracle Times says Litecoin could potentially overtake in bitcoin in price as the latter is having difficulty scaling to the level needed for general commerce with high fees and longer transaction times. Litecoin surge: Why is litecoin going up? Will LTC fall again? He wrote today: The litecoin could be the solution. Litecoin combines all of the benefits of Bitcoin, but with shorter transaction times and lower fees. "It has been on the forefront of bitcoin innovations, implementing SegWit [soft fork change in Bitcoin] early last year and now offering the possibility of lightning network and atomic swaps. No-one knows for certain about what cryptocurrency values will be by the end of 2018 but the entire cryptocurrency market could hit $1 trillion this year, Kraken founder and CEO Jesse Powell told CNBC this week. Predicting an acceleration of growth after weeks of downturn and uncertainty, he told CNBC: "You've got a lot more kids graduating from crypto pr Continue reading >>

4 Cryptocurrencies To Buy If You Missed The Boat On Bitcoin
4 Cryptocurrencies to Buy If You Missed the Boat on Bitcoin With bitcoin prices cracking $10,000, investors who were late to the game should seek out alternative cryptocurrencies Not known for providing conventional trading dynamics, bitcoin prices again shocked the world, this time exceeding $8,000. At this juncture, we may be standing on a critical inflection point. For those that believe that cryptocurrencies are in a bubble, the present bitcoin prices are a perfect argument. But to crypto supporters, the dramatic rise only proves the viability of the digital markets. Ive written extensively about cryptocurrencies, and Ive traded them as well. But even I have to admit that the meteoric skyrocketing of bitcoin prices is a shocker. Im not so surprised in terms of nominal targets: a few months back, I wrote about the not-so-crazy case for $10,000bitcoin . My InvestorPlace colleague, Will Ashworth, did the same . Rather, the speed at which bitcoin prices accelerated caught me flatfooted. Obviously, I stand with virtual currency supporters. My personal view is that if cryptocurrencies were a bubble, it would have popped by now. While I get why investors are hesitant to jump onboard what appears to many as internet tokens, we shouldnt underestimate how much information we have available today. If Google was around during the tulip-mania era, I doubt that so many people would have lost their life savings. And in the same logic, we hear so many stories about bitcoin prices being unsustainable. This is a bull market that has had every opportunity to collapse. Still, bitcoin prices today represent a considerable risk. Not too many can afford to plop down more than eight grand for a single coin. But if you feel that you missed the boat, dont worry! The following cryptocurrenci Continue reading >>
Will Litecoin Price Rise Above $300 Level Again?
Will Litecoin Price Rise Above $300 Level Again? Litecoin, one of the top 10 cryptocurrencies in 2018 has lost its momentum since Charlee Lees Conflict of Interest statement. Now, Will Litecoin Price Rise Above $300 Level Again? CoinCrump Litecoin , Or LTC the sixth largest cryptocurrency according to market cap, now refueling itself for the next level. The coin has a market cap of approximately 13.8 Billion, according to CryptoCompare. The digital currency was struggling to cross US$300 mark after its founder CEO Charlie Lee statement to sell all his LTC holdings to avoid Conflict Of Interest. Now, the primary question isWill Litecoin Price Rise Above $300 Level Again? Indeed, Yes. Litecoin LTC All-Time Chart, source: EthereumPrice.org Will Litecoin Price Rise Above $300 Level Again? The Litecoin fell from US$320 to $US210 in just two days as rumors whirl the internet about Lees intention to sell his Litecoin holdings. A panic selling soon whipped the bullish momentum of the coin and investors lost their interest. But, the most prominent rival of Bitcoin , now sounding technically & fundamentally healthy to move above US$ 300 level, and might touch all-time high within a month or two. For those who are not aware of the fact that Litecoin works onscrypt-based mining proof-of-work algorithm with the limited quantity of 84 million currency units. Also,halves in reward every four years just like Bitcoin. The coin has the potential to reach above 50 Billion market cap as the fast and secure transactions be a part of it.

Will Litecoin Hit $1 Million?
However, it is not really the right question to ask. LTC has good fundamentals and I am a fan of its founder, Charlie Lee. I believe it was relatively undervalued a month ago, and I think it is closer to its proper relative valuation now. As for price predictions, those are fun and one can really throw any number out there. I am focused on 2018, and if the market remains healthy next year I think $400500 is a very conservative target for Litecoin. That is what I thought when I bought in a month ago, and I have to revise that upward, since the spike to $200 came 6 months sooner than I expected. I think LTC can surpass $1,000 during 2018. For litecoin to reach $1 million, it needs a reason. What would be the reason? Speculation? A bubble? Crazy stuff can happen in a bubble, but we are already in a bitcoin bubble and people won't do another right after this one pops. Will it reach that level on intrinsic value? No. Consider if all online shopping for Amazon were done in Litecoin (for a ballpark estimate). That's something like $500 billion for a year. Divide by 53 million litecoins and you let under $10,000. So I can see it reaching that level if it were the dominant coin in use, but not $1M. Continue reading >>
Why Will Litecoin (ltc) Reach $1000 Usd Sooner Than You Think Newcomers
Litecoin (LTC), after LitePay and LitePal was one of the first to rebound and it will for sure be one of the first to return to the all-time high of $ 370 USD because these new payment processing services will allow even more merchants to accept LTC. As proof of that, you can see that Litecoin (LTC), despite the current dip that were witnessing, is recording all-time highs in terms of hashrate and security. The fact that for example WooCommerce, one of the leaders in e-Commerce and owner of WordPress, has several plug-ins that allow merchants to receive payment on their business shows us that Litecoin is way ahead of the competition. You can check out Franklin Richards from the Litecoin Foundation tweet below: Image 1 Franklyn Richards Tweet Source: LitePay and LitePal to bring the price up LitePay will be launched later this week and LitePal later in 2018. LitePal is probably the most exciting one since according to their tandem they stated: LitePal is a Litecoin-first payment processor. We envision a cryptocurrency world where Litecoin is utilised by merchants from all over the world; one streamlined, simple, less confusing process. Thank you @SatoshiLite for creating the LTC we all love! Litecoin will benefit from all these new adopters, especially in terms of price since newcomers are usually the ones that drive the price up. When talking about new adopters we must look at the potential numbers, and LitePal promises to bring a lot of users to the Litecoins network, since it plans on providing service compatible with PayPal, Western Union and Bitcoin (BTC) also. This American based provider of merchant services and payment processing, which some of you may already know, announced that it is now offering its users the ability to pay in Litecoin (LTC). They had previo Continue reading >>
How High Do You Think Litecoin Will Climb? $80? $100? $200? $500? $1000+? Steemcreated With Sketch.
How high do you think LITECOIN will Climb? $80? $100? $200? $500? $1000+? How high do you think Litecoin will climb? We have been anticipating a jump in the Litecoin price with Bitcoin's near future being unknown with the Bitcoin Improvement Proposal (BIP) 148. Bitcoin will be undergoing a user activated soft fork on August 1, 2017. I believe the price of BTC will gradually drop up to that time (great time to buy) and then as Bitcoin adapts to its new fork, it will start to rise again and then really take off. But how does that help Litecoin? Look at the Litecoin chart below from coinmarketcap.com. Litecoin was at $3.98 on March 20th 2017. On April 20th LTC was $9.61, May 10th it jumped to $35.54 and then came down and floated around the $30 mark mostly since. Then we saw a spike on on June 17th, 2 days ago where the price rose into the $40 range and now we have seen an all time high of hitting over $50 today (that's 12.5x increase from 3 months ago)! There's a lot of volume of LTC being traded. In fact, in the last 24 hours $1,349,100,000 of Litecoin has been traded, that's about half of its market cap of $2,612,494,639 which is unheard of! So why LITECOIN? Well it's a faster, cheaper and more efficient clone of Bitcoin. With all the rises in crypto prices recently, experts were dumbfounded that Litecoin didn't surge with BTC and Ethereum. Now we are seeing its rise and I feel that rise will continue. Bitcoin is slow and expensive to use. It will be more apt as a Gold Standard in crypto in the future but Litecoin will be a much more feasible and easier to use payment system. With the Bitcoin fork happening around the corner, look at Litcoin to get a boost in transactions and people who never used Litecoin will see how much more efficient it really is. What do you thin Continue reading >>
