On April 28, 2022, the crypto asset apecoin tapped an all-time high (ATH) tapping $26.70 per unit and the digital currency has taken the 25th largest market capitalization among 13,371 cryptocurrencies. The same day, the product comparison platform Finder published its prediction report that covers apecoin’s market performance and Finder’s surveyed panelists predict apecoin will end the year at $27 per unit.
This week finder.com published a new prediction report that polled 36 financial technology (fintech) specialists in order to forecast the future price of apecoin (APE). The digital currency has made waves in recent times and has propelled itself to the 25th largest market capitalization position as of April 28. Furthermore, APE reached an ATH on Thursday, skyrocketing to $26.70 per APE. However, APE has shed roughly 15% since the price high.
Finder’s poll predicts APE will reach $27.70 per coin by the end of 2022, and by the end of 2025, APE will be $25. 50% of the panel says it’s time to sell APE, 33% of the 36 fintech specialists insist people should hold apecoin, and 17% say people should buy. Three-quarters of all the panelists believe apecoin (APE) is simply another meme coin asset like DOGE or SHIB.
The fintech lecturer at Swinburne University of Technology, Dimitrios Salampasis, is very bullish about APE and thinks it could reach $45 by the year’s end. Although, Salampasis believes APE will only be worth $10 by 2030. “The current hype of NFTs is impacting the price of apecoin,” Salampasis said. “I am of the opinion that all these overhyped crypto assets will gradually disappear and lose their value because their utility potentialities are trivial.”
Another person who is bullish about APE’s price is Thomson Reuters’ technologist and futurist Joseph Raczynski as he believes APE could reach $100 by 2030. Finder.com’s co-founder Fred Schebesta also believes APE could reach $100 by 2030, but his 2022 forecast was below the panel average. Schebesta said he expects apecoin to end the year at $20 per unit. One bearish point of view came from Matthew Harry, the head of funds at Digitalx Asset Management.
The Digitalx executive thinks APE’s current value is based on hype and he thinks by the year 2030, apecoin will be worth zero. “It looks to be an obvious play on the currently hyped themes of DAOs, Web3, and BAYC/Degen,” Harry explained in the report. “Have seen a thousand iterations of hypecoins designed to bring fresh retail capital into the space and not deliver.” While 75% of the panel believes APE is just “another memecoin,” 20% think APE has a future and 5% of the panelists said they were “unsure” about apecoin.
