Stellar Price Prediction


Stellar seems to be one of the unique cryptocurrencies that handled to survive the crypto winter. However, few crypto experts assume that XLM will surely double its price.

Stellar is one of the top-10 cryptocurrencies but is stuck at the level of around $0.08. However, traders and investors are optimistic about trading the coin with trading tools like Bitcoin Trader and predict a major increase.

So, what is Stellar Lumens price prediction 2019, and what can enhance XLM growth?

Well, on complete research from different sources, I have summarized the Stellar Price Prediction in detail.

Let’s dive in…

Stellar Price Today

With the Market Cap of $ 1.35 B and a huge circulating supply of 20,054,779,554 XLM coins, Stellar sells for $ 0.06676. Stellar is in 10th place in the rating of world cryptocurrencies. It is available on multiple exchange platforms. Thus, you can easily purchase some stellar coins.

Fundamental Analysis

Stellar was introduced by Jed McCaleb in the year 2014. It is a open source network, distributed, and community owned network used to assist cross-asset transfers of value.

The main objective of Stellar coin is to aid cross-asset transfer of value at a fraction of a penny, while targeting to be an open financial system that provides people of all income levels access to less cost financial services.

Technical Analysis

A couple of years ago, the xlm price faced a major breakdown. The stellar coin price in April 2017 was below $.002 USD. However, it started to gain some attention in late summer.

Last year, John McAfee, founder of software company McAfee, tweeted that Stellar might be “the next bitcoin”. But, as per his prediction, the price didn’t reach the expected levels.

The XLM price really increased in Q4 2017, along with other altcoins. Moreover, Stellar managed to hold a decent amount of its valuation when the bear market commenced.

Stellar Technical Analysis

Even though Stellar price decreased in January 2018, when you compare it to April of 2017, the coin has grown 2,900% in one year! Which is pretty amazing!

The highest point in December was $.31 cents. Then in January 2019, Stellar raised to a new peak growing to its all-time high of $.93 cents.

Although, it’s possible that Stellar could lose more value against Bitcoin, it is unlikely to crash severely against fiat currencies like the USD.

Stellar Price Prediction 2020

By analyzing the current performance, we can observe that XLM might get over 120% in the course of 2020, reaching the maximal price of $0.60 by the end of the year. Moreover, Google predicts $50 per one XLM unit in 2020, which is more than enthusiastic at this point.

However, opinions are divided, so few experts predict that XLM will only get closer to its previously set record price by reaching the value of $0.70 by the end of 2020. This was the earlier assumption.

Now, the news of Stellar burning 55 million of tokens broke out. The Experts predict price may increase by 50 to 60 percent by end of 2020.

Expert Predictions

  • WalletInvestor predicts XLM will trade at $0.0165 by the end of 2020.

  • According to TradingBeasts, Stellar will cost $0.05 this year and will grow to $0.07 this price until 2021.

Stellar Price Prediction 5 years

Accordingly, with the latest performance of XLM and its established growth, we can predict based on calculations that XLM might go for $1.19 by end of 2025.

However, few enthusiasts believe that XLM will get above this value, skyrocketing with the increased use of Stellar as one of the fastest currencies in the crypto market.

Expert Prediction

Ben Ritchie, CEO of Digital Capital Management

Stellar managed to gain enough respect in 2018, so it will reach momentum in 2019 for further development. Its blockchain will continue solving problems, so the number of investors and partners is expected to increase. He believes that XLM will reach $0.14 by February 2019 and $0.35 by the end of the year.

Lawrence Digital (@DigitalLawrence)

“Stellar lumens is one of the most interesting projects in crypto today, and with Jed McCaleb leaving Ripple to head XLM, there’s a lot left to be seen. If you pay attention to Stellar’s charts, it’s one of the few that have held its value in 2018 — and I believe it is thanks to their business development behind the scenes. I’ve seen many projects abandoning ETH all together to develop on Lumens. 2019 will be a very critical year for the Stellar foundation.”

Mega Crypto Price

The price forecast at Mega Crypto Price has been very optimistic for all the cryptocurrencies and its the same for XLM, too, predicting that Stellar could be worth $5.10 by the end of 2019. The team says that this can be achieved as long as there are no major security flaws and the overall sector performs well.

Overall, if you’re searching for a major altcoin with the potential to see compelling growth in 2020, Stellar may be a good choice.

With solid fundamentals backing the project and the technical side of things seems strong, there appears a little risk when it comes to investing in Stellar for the long term.
