Binance Coin Price Prediction

By now, most people in the crypto space know about Binance Coin (BNB) — a cryptocurrency developed by Binance crypto exchange, and one of the top performing coins in 2019 so far. In the last few months, many have been especially bullish about this coin, while the coin itself managed to outperform pretty much every cryptocurrency out there.

Since the year started, BNB managed to triple its price, surging from around $5 to $15.83. Even now, at the time of writing, the coin’s price is at $15.51, with a growth of 5.53% in the last 24 hours. If Bitcoin were to perform this well, its price would now be around $12,000 per coin, instead of only $4,000.

There is, of course, a reason for BNB’s growth — several, actually. It has been created and backed by the largest exchange in the world by trading volume, and it has become the native cryptocurrency of Binance ecosystem. It provides its users with a huge discount in terms of trading fees, and it is the only cryptocurrency that can be used for buying new tokens which are being sold on Binance Launchpad.

Further, since the launch of Binance Jersey, a new project targeting European markets, BNB can also be exchanged for GBP and EUR, which provides investors with a new gateway into the crypto space. In addition, Binance is holding regular quarterly token burns which reduce the coin’s circulating supply, thus ensuring the existing coins’ value.

Finally, Binance is working on developing its own blockchain, as well as its own decentralized exchange, which will be fueled by BNB. The DEX is still in its beta version, with Binance currently gathering feedback from those who are testing it. However, once the Binance Chain and Binance DEX go live, the coin will be their base currency, which will give it even more use cases, and even a higher price.

But, the question that traders and investors around the world are asking is — how high can BNB actually go? What to expect when it comes to its price?

BNB price predictions

As mentioned, BNB has seen massive growth since the year started. Its gains were so high that it is now considered the only coin in the market that has decoupled from Bitcoin, which puts it in a unique position to carve its own path, and not have to depend on BTC.

This has been one of the reasons why BNB managed to triple its price in less than three months. As March approaches its end, many are wondering how BNB might perform in April?

Well, depending on the predictions, BNB might either continue its growth or see a price correction which will bring it down to an average price of $7.14. So far, there were no indications that the coin’s price will drop, and a recent correction has been only a minor one, and its impact has already been nullified by the current surge.

However, if BNB does drop to the mentioned price, it will continue to grow once again from there. By the end of 2019, this scenario sees BNB back at around $10.11, while it will once again reach its current price by July 2020.

However, it should be mentioned that this is a highly unlikely scenario. As mentioned, BNB has no reason to drop anytime soon, at least not to this extent. Further, the launch of Binance Chain and Binance DEX are bound to send the coin’s price to the moon, whether it drops or not. The calculations that saw BNB’s drop only included the coin’s past performance and were based on the patterns it had gone through earlier.

However, considering that the coin spent most of its lifetime in a bearish market, it is clear that this is the worst possible scenario, which is, once again, not very likely.

But, even if we do take this approach to the coin, the same predictions see BNB hit an average price of around $105 by the end of 2022, meaning that even the grimmest predictions for BNB see it skyrocketing in years to come.

BNB future remains bright no matter what happens in April or following months, as Binance developers made quite smart moves in giving the coin its numerous use cases, with even more of them being announced. Many investors have recognized this, and they are buying the coin while it is still cheap. This has brought its daily trading volume to around $155 million, which is impressive considering that most of the coin’s activity and usage comes from Binance alone.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
