Our crypto prediction panel turns slightly bearish overall on six popular cryptocurrencies through the week of August 29.

Bitcoin failed to push through US$25,000 after several attempts. This is a major resistance level that requires a strong catalyst. Macroeconomic factors still weigh down on the crypto market and it may take a while until we see a major move higher.

Finder's crypto prediction panel turned neutral on Bitcoin in the most recent survey looking out through the week of August 29.

Finder's cryptocurrency prediction panel comprises 15 experts in the field. Five of them rotate to share their predictions for the following two weeks on six major cryptocurrencies each week.

Finder's experts turn slightly bearish

Our experts are slightly bearish on six popular cryptocurrencies, a shift from last week when the sentiment was neutral.

SolanaSlightly bearishSlightly bullish
OverallSlightly bearishNeutral

The panel's outlook on Bitcoin (BTC) is neutral, a change from the week before when it was bullish. Bitcoin failed to reclaim US$25,000. This means we could see Bitcoin move lower to US$23,000 and potentially US$21,000.

The panel's verdict on Ethereum (ETH) is neutral, a change from the week before when it was bullish. Ether trades close to US$1,900 after it failed to take US$2,000. We could see the price retreat to US$1,750 if it fails to move above US$2,000 and hold there.

The panel's outlook on Dogecoin (DOGE) is slightly bearish, the same as the week before. DOGE trades at US$0.084 after clearing US$0.075 through multiple attempts. The next level to watch is US$0.09.

The panel's verdict on Litecoin (LTC) is slightly bearish, the same as the week before. LTC trades above US$60 throughout the month of August. The next target is US$70, but this would likely require Bitcoin to clear US$25,000.

The panel's outlook on Ripple (XRP) is slightly bearish, the same as the week before. XRP failed to break through US$0.4 once again. It needs a strong catalyst to break this level.

The panel's verdict on Solana (SOL) is slightly bearish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bullish. SOL still trades in a narrow range of between US$35 and US$45.

Finder's experts hold long-term bullish sentiment on Bitcoin

Finder asked 33 fintech specialists in July to offer price predictions for Bitcoin by year's end. The majority predict Bitcoin will trade for around US$25,473 at the end of 2022.
