In this guide, we will express our and the market’s opinion on the future of ETH as we discuss Ethereum’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 Ethereum.
Now, let’s get into it.
Before we delve into Ethereum price prediction and answer questions about whether ETH is a good investment or not, why ETH will succeed or fail, or why Ethereum’s price will rise or fall, let’s quickly take a look at what ETH is and its history to date.
You can buy, trade, and bet Ethereum on many exchanges, including major platforms such as eToro, Cex.io, Coinbase, and Binance.
Ethereum Price Prediction
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.
Ethereum Price Prediction 2023
High inflation and the extremely dangerous macroeconomic situation have been heavily reflected in the price of Bitcoin in 2022. When we take the internal crypto issues with big players like FTX, Celsius, Voyager, Luna going down, 2023 doesn’t look too good for bulls. We’ll likely see a lot of boring sideways price action with a tendency to slide down with each minor market tremor.

Is Ethereum worth buying?
We are supporters of moderately risky investments: invest most of your cryptocurrency portfolio in BTC (50%); 35% in a basket of large-cap coins and the rest in small projects with huge increases. So, in this context, it is worth buying Ethereum.
Is Ethereum a good investment?
Ethereum is, just like all other cryptocurrencies, a risky investment. It is more likely to go up than down because of the good use case, well-designed tokenomics, active community, and a strong team behind it.
How much will Ethereum be worth?
For the short-term future, it could reach $1175.16. In the long term (8-10 years), it could jump to $25617.17 or even higher.
Why will Ethereum succeed and rise in price?
Ethereum has a good use case, well-designed tokenomics, active community, and a solid team behind it. All of these are a prerequisite for success and that’s why our forecasting model sees Ethereum rise to $25617.17 in 2030.
Why will Ethereum fail and fall in price?
Cryptographic projects fail for various reasons. Some of the most common are: the team goes rogue and abandons the project, regulators declare it illegal and press exchanges to delist it, lack of media attention, more successful competitors, lack of a well-designed marketing strategy, loss of community support, potential vulnerability in the protocol, failure to achieve the minimum development activity foreseen on the protocol, inability to attract new developers to build on their platform.
How high will Ethereum go?
Our prediction model sees the price of Ethereum explode and reach $51234.34 in the distant future.
What is the short-term forecast for Ethereum?
Ethereum will reach $1175.16 over the next 90 days, which is a 5.5% change from the current price which hovers around $1243.55.
Can Ethereum make you a millionaire?
Yes, if you buy a large enough sum. Don’t expect to invest $100 and become an Ethereum millionaire. But 100x price explosions are a common sight in crypto, so a $10k investment in Ethereum could make you a millionaire.
Price Prediction Today – What will be the price of Ethereum tomorrow?
Ethereum will hover around $1321.32 tomorrow.
Will Ethereum continue to rise?
Ethereum will continue to rise in 2022 and beyond. It will increase to $25617.17 in 2030.
When to sell and exit Ethereum?
It depends on your trading profile. If you believe in Ethereum and think it has a bright future, holding the coin for at least a couple of years is a good idea. Taking profits on good investments is an even better idea. So, if you are sitting on 100-200% or even more earnings on your Ethereum, cashing out a portion of the funds is not a bad move.
Can Ethereum explode?
Yes, our algorithm sees Ethereum take off and skyrocket in 2022 with a 54.5% increase over the current price.
Could Ethereum crash and go to zero?
Ethereum almost certainly won’t collapse and crash. People are usually worried that the coin may go to zero if the price of their investment lags behind or falls. This is a natural swing in any trading market, prices go up and down continuously.
Ethereum 2.0 Price Prediction
PoW to PoS Switch and Its Effects on the Future Price of Ethereum
If we apply the basic economic laws and draw our own conclusions, we can safely conclude that ETH will benefit from its update to Ethereum 2.0 and the proo of stake consensus mechanism.
When the network
switches to staking, miners are more likely to stack the block reward ETH on their wagered ETH in order to maintain their network’s bet share. As blocks are produced, more ETH is sent into circulation.
Because staking takes up very few resources compared to proof of work, miners don’t need to sell nearly as much to cover electrical, land, and hardware costs over time. This has a negative effect on the price of BTC: miners cash in to pay business expenses.
2.0, the costs will be very low and there will be a financial incentive to continue stacking the ETH block reward on top of the staked coins.
Ethereum Long-term price forecast
Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum said:
“There are some good ideas, there are many very bad ideas, and
there are many very, very bad ideas, and also some scams”
As a result, more than 95% of successful ICOs and cryptocurrency projects will fail and their investors will lose money. The other 5% of the projects will become the new Apple, Google or Alibaba in the cryptocurrency sector. Will Ethereum be among that 5%?
Very high probability of this happening.
Ethereum has an order of magnitude more developers building on it than any other platform – and this gap is widening by the day. This means that if another blockchain platform wants to beat Ethereum in terms of developer adoption, it’s not enough to catch up with where Ethereum is now – it has to surpass Ethereum’s growth rate going forward. If you don’t have developers building applications on your blockchain, you’re actually building a ghost town.
The blockchain platform that has the most developers building real-world applications on it will be the platform that will get the widest mainstream adoption. And not only does Ethereum have a huge advantage in this area, but the gap is widening with each passing day.
Ethereum has better tools and infrastructure for developing DApps than any other platform. Truffle. Rage. Web3.js. OpenZeppelin. Geth. Guanache. MetaMask. CryptoZombies. MyCrypto. Etherscan. ERC20 and ERC721.
These are tools (among many others) that different developer teams have tirelessly poured hundreds of thousands of hours into – and they’re free to use for any Ethereum developer who wants to build a DApp on Ethereum.
All this summary distinguishes ETH from one of its many “assassins” such as EOS, NEO, ADA, TRX etc.
DeFi and reduced supply of ETH
One of the
key themes of 2019 was the wave of decentralized finance (DeFi), a new and disruptive type of finance that works on trustless protocols and without the need for financial intermediaries.
According to analytics site Defipulse.com, the billion dollars locked into markets — that is, across the spectrum of smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum — is nearly 60% denominated in MakerDAO’s DAI stablecoin.
Defipulse’s statistics reveal that a year ago today, the locked value in DeFi was about a quarter of what it is now, at $276 million.
Based on the 101 economy, this reduced circulating supply of Ethereum is positive for price development as supply shrinks while demand remains the same (or increases). This is an important achievement since Ethereum is the first cryptocurrency that actually enters the world of utility and use in the real world. This is fallow ground for cryptocurrencies and the price of Ethereum is set to rise as it now has another leg to rest on (apart from the ever-present speculation).
Staking and ETH supply and its effects on the price of Ethereum
Ethereum is switching to Proof of Stake this or next year (with all the delays, hard to set a date). The Casper protocol has been formalized, the specifications are complete, and the implementation phase can now begin. Depending on how long it takes to implement and test can determine how it all unfolds.
The minimum requirement for staking is set at 32 ethers.
Your staked coins are held for a fixed period of 3, 6, 9 or 12 months in an Ethereum betting wallet that is synchronized with a smart contract.
The amount of reward you collect depends on the time spent: the longer you keep your coins in a staking wallet, the greater the reward.
This will be another huge factor that will impact Ethereum supply, tilting the supply/demand ratio even more on the demand side. With the PoS changes in full effect, Ethereum will have another fundamental force that will push its price up.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Can Ethereum surpass and beat Bitcoin?
They are not competing for the same “trophies” and therefore cannot beat each other. They are complementary ecosystems that benefit from growth and mutual adoption.
After reading this price forecast for Ethereum, the logical question that appears in everyone’s mind is: should I invest in ETH? Well, it is very difficult to answer without knowing the personal preferences and investment profile of each of you.
There are certainly enough reasons that make Ethereum a good investment, but projecting a certain and bright future for ETH would be irresponsible on our part. Our general recommendation is to keep at least 50% of your crypto wallet in BTC, 35% of your cryptocurrency in large-cap coins (ETH, ADA, XRP, XLM etc.) and 15% in large-rise small-cap coins. This way you’re covered in most scenarios that encryption could play (except if it crumbles into annihilation, which is always a possibility, but I expect you’ve already come to terms with this option).
