In this guide, we will express our and the market’s view on future DCR as we discuss Decred’s price forecasts for 2023 and beyond.
Keep in mind that you should take this and any other forecast with a grain of salt since predicting anything is a thankless task, let alone predicting the future of a new highly volatile financial asset like Decred.
Now, let’s get into it.
Before we delve into Decred price prediction and answer questions about whether DCR is a good investment or not, why DCR will succeed or fail, or why the Decred price will rise or fall, let’s quickly take a look at what DCR is and its history to date.
What Is Decred?
Decred (DCR) is a cryptocurrency designed to provide a solution to the scalability problem that plagued Bitcoin. Decred (DCR) is a blockchain-based cryptocurrency launched in February 2016. The token and the Decred protocol were created to facilitate open governance, community interaction, and sustainable funding policies.
Decred is designed to build on Bitcoin’s perceived flaws. In particular that Bitcoin risks becoming too centralized and that it has been too easy for big mining interests to dominate the dialogue about the future of blockchain.
In order to prevent a similar problem from occurring in the future, Decred offers its users the ability to vote on proposals regarding the future of blockchain. To ensure that both miners and ordinary users have a say in how blockchain develops, Decred joins Dash in combining Proof-of-Work and Proof-of-Stake consensus methods. Decred uses a decentralized lottery to select PoS miners to vote for PoW blocks. PoS and PoW subsidies account for 60% and 30% of each block subsidy, with 10% set aside to compensate developers for future work. This system is similar to the Proof-of-Activity system developed by Iddo Bentov, Charles Lee, Alex Mizrahi and Meni Rosenfeld.
Decred (DCR) Token
The DCR token is the focal point of the Decred ecosystem, with each token representing a voting right. There is a maximum limit of 21 million DCR coins available for mining. The circulating supply of DCR coins as of July 2021 is just over half of this, 12.7 million.
The Decred coin (DCR) was launched in 2016 with a starting price of $0.95. Its price peaked during one of the bull markets at $200, then fell again.
DCR Price Prediction for the next 90 days
The entire cryptocurrency world is on the verge of complete collapse. Bitcoin fell 75% from its all-time high amid broader market declines caused by furious inflation and the US Fed’s rate hikes.
When you add the most recent collapses of huge industry players (FTX, Celsius, Moon etc.) into the equation, the horizon is murky and there will be more blood on the streets of the crypto city.
Investors are selling risky assets and moving to more stable markets. Crypto is still perceived as a very risky game and therefore sell off.
Our algo still sees some green in 2023, especially in the second half of the year. This is reflected in our forecast for 2023.
Right now, Bitcoin needs to find a bottom before we can move in the opposite direction and reverse the trend.
Once Bitcoin settles into the new price range, altcoins will start doing the same – we’ve seen this scenario dozens of times in distant and more recent history.
Our price forecasting model is bearish for the next 90 days with a hint of a bull market straddling quarters from Q1 to Q2. We expect whales and other larger players in the market to finish filling their bags around that time, which will cause a typical and sudden crypto spike.
The fundamentals we evaluate are teams, tokenomics, use case, community, marketing efforts, liquidity and availability of exchange, hype and speculative potential, and some other proprietary factors developed in our crypto lab.
