Thursday 5th July 2018

Good morning,

I thought you might be interested in our July Cryptocurrency Predictions Report, which has just been released. This month, 10 fintech leaders have provided their predictions on how the top 10 by market cap and top 3 trending cryptocurrencies will perform in 2018.

Out of the 13 coins, our panellists predict that EOS (EOS) will experience the greatest growth by 31 December 2018 (206%). EOS’s price was $17 per unit on 30 May 2018, and is forecast to reach $52 by the year’s end.

TRON (TRX) is expected to have the second-greatest positive price growth by 31 December (146%), followed by Cardano (ADA) (145%).

Bitcoin (BTC) is predicted to hit $19,763 by the end of the year. This is less than half what our panellists predicted back in January, at $44,558 on average by 31 December 2018.

None of these coins are expected to drop in value by the end of the year, but two are forecast to decrease by 1 July 2018 – IOTA (MIOTA) is estimated to fall 8% in price, followed by Monero (XMR) at a 7% loss.

Comparing the forecast market capitalisations for bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Ethereum (ETH) – the only 3 of the 13 coins with reported number of coins available – bitcoin (BTC) is predicted to see the highest growth by the end of the year (99%). This was followed by Ethereum (ETH) with a 91% increase, and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), with an increase of 76%.
