Hypotheses are starting to circulate regarding price predictions for Ethereum (ETH) for 2025.
These are predictions that analyze the Ethereum cycle, and in particular the five-year period 2021-2025.
Starting from the current level of around $2,000, some speculate that the price could rise to $9,000 in the next four to five years.
According to other forecasts, a range between $3,500 and $70,000 is conceivable.
The fact is that the current rally is attracting increasing interest in crypto markets from both retail and institutional investors.
Increased interest inevitably tends to cause an increase in demand, but supply does not increase accordingly.
In fact, although ETH is not as deflationary in nature as BTC, it is still a fairly scarce asset, the production of which cannot be increased at will.
Therefore, should the increase in interest, and demand, continue over the next few years, then it is possible that this will also increase the price, as the supply will not increase accordingly.
Moreover, the price trend of ETH often follows that of BTC, and for bitcoin, in 2024 the fifth cycle will begin, following the fourth halving. It is therefore not at all implausible that 2024 and 2025 could also be bullish years for ETH.
The price of ETH started last year at around $130, while now it is almost at $2,000. In other words, it has benefited a lot from the start of Bitcoin’s fourth cycle, thanks to the third halving in May 2020.
One should also keep in mind that Ethereum 2.0 is expected to be launched in a few months, or perhaps in 2022, which should solve several current scalability issues.
Conflicting predictions on the price of Ethereum in 2025
According to a prediction by Simon Dedic, co-founder of Blockfyre and managing partner of Moonrock Capital, the price of ETH will eventually rise to $9,000. Blocktown Capital managing partner James Todaro also believes it has the potential to reach this figure.
Of course, not all analysts agree with this prediction, but there are several who still believe that the price can rise.
For example, some say the forecast for 2024 would be bearish, but in 2025 it could turn bullish again.
In light of this, some imagine a range that is actually extremely wide, with the price of ETH in 2025 possibly reaching $3,500 or even $70,000.
It has to be said that, given the huge number of variables involved, and the uncertainty currently reigning in the financial markets with regard to the coming years, such a wide range seems more appropriate than a dry number like $9,000.
In other words, it is still too early to make precise predictions about where the price of Ethereum might go in 2025.
