The privacy centered cryptocurrency of Moner0 (XMR) might be valued at $39,584 in 10 years: an increment of 33,000% from XMR’s current value of approximately $120. This is according to a new report from initial coin offering advisory and research firm of Satis Group. The report tries to forecast the values of our favorite digital assets in the next 10 years. According to the same report, XRP will be valued at $0.004 by 2028 signifying a drop in value of 98.8% from current values of $0.34.

A summary of the findings can be found in the table below from the report.

The valuation of the cryptocurrencies was based on the following three models:

  1. Top Down: using the quantity theory of money to deduce the value of crypto assets needed to support a forecasted economy
  2. Peer-Based: using multiples of network-specific metrics to arrive at relative valuations
  3. Bottom-Up: using discounted cash flow models to estimate the value of networks that provide yield

The key takeaways from the report are also as follows:

  • The amount of cryptocurrency market value needed to support economic activities to expand from ~$500B next year to $3.6T in 2028
  • 90%+ of cryptocurrency value will be derived from penetration of offshore deposits in the next decade
  • Currency and Privacy networks will be the largest beneficiaries, as most fundamental value will stem from store of value use cases
  • Increment (10 years) in Bitcoin ($143k), Monero ($39k), and Decred ($899): cryptocurrencies which apply unique value propositions within deep and viral markets
  • A decrease in value in in BCH ($180), and cryptocurrencies which attempt to inherit brand recognition and provide minimal technological advantage to incumbents
  • Almost no value in XRP ($0.004), and cryptocurrencies which are misleadingly marketed, not needed within their own network, and have centralized ownership/validation
  • Most “Other Utility” application-specific networks hold very little value, in their current construct

Privacy will Dominate

From the report, we find that crypto users will value the privacy element of the cryptocurrencies around to further boost the value of the digital assets. This can be found in the predicted gains of privacy coins in 10 years from the table below that also stems from the report.

A Rush to Buy Monero (XMR) and other Privacy Coins

Once the report was made public on the 30th of August, Moner0 (XMR) has risen in value from $96 to current levels of $122 at the moment of writing this. This is a 27% increment in value in less than a week. DASH has also risen 19.5% from $174 to current values of $208 in the same time period.

Looking at other privacy coins of Bytecoin (BCN), ZCash (ZEC) and Verge (XVG), there has been similar upward movement since the 30th of August. ZEC is up from $144 to current values of $152: a percentage increase of 5.55%. BCN has also experienced a growth of 30% from $0.0019 on the 30th of August to current levels of $0.00246. XVG has also had some life pumped into its value and by 31% since the report came out.

In conclusion, for short term and long term investment, privacy coins have proven that they will gain the most when compared with other cryptocurrencies in the markets. Monero (XMR) has been projected to lead the pack in terms of gains for the next 10 years. On the other hand, XRP is headed for a decline of over 98% in the next 10 years further putting the case for total capitulation by XRP HODLers.

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
