    Future of crypto in 2022

    07 January 17:35


    1. Could the global adoption of crypto assets continue in 2022?
    2. Cryptocurrency towards a suspension of volatility in 2022?
    3. 2022 the foundation for the future of crypto-currency payments?
    4. 3 top expert predictions for crypto currencies in 2022.

    Experts in the crypto sector are already venturing some predictions for an eventful 2022 in the financial markets. And while these experts are probably one step ahead to take advantage of this market turmoil, the vast majority of investors are still lagging behind.

    Is it too late to invest in cryptocurrencies? While some see blockchain and crypto initiatives as the biggest money-making opportunity of our time, others see them as a speculative bubble about to implode overnight. So it seems that crypto specialists will have plenty of options in the coming year.

    1. Could the global adoption of crypto assets continue in 2022?

    According to Gilbert, "The global adoption of crypto-assets is accelerating at an extraordinary rate and we can expect this trend to continue through 2022."

    Most analysts and observers predict that 2022 will be another year of increasing use of cryptocurrency, both as an investment vehicle and inflation hedge, as well as in terms of payment utility.

    El Salvador became the first country to recognise Bitcoin as a legal tender in September 2021, and there is a good chance that other countries will follow suit in 2022. However, this depends on the performance of El Salvador, which many countries in a similar situation are watching from afar. Alexander.H, predicts that "at least five countries" will adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender by the end of the year.

    Fawad Razaqzada said "I think most potential countries are waiting to see how the Salvadoran economy will evolve with the adoption
    of BTC. If successful, I'm sure others will follow suit, one way or another, especially those with weak economies and frequent currency crises."

    This will be better understood with Lou Kerner: “Just as institutional adoption of crypto is inevitable, so too is the adoption of crypto by governments around the world. Adoption of Bitcoin as legal tender will be more attractive to people and small governments that have no currencies, ”he said.

    2022 could therefore be the year of global adoption of crypto assets to everyone to take this opportunity.

    2. Crypto currency towards a suspension of volatility in 2022?

    Mr. Gilbert believes that as cryptocurrency becomes more mainstream, it will lose some of its iconic volatility.

    “As crypto critics often argue over the actual use cases and usefulness of particular cryptoassets, it is becoming increasingly clear that they are now entering and gaining a solid foundation in industries of many billions of dollars like music, games, sports and art. "

    For Rohit Talwar by the end of 2022, at least 25 countries will have adopted a central bank digital currency. Either their own currency or that of another country, such as the Chinese digital yuan; which would therefore be favorable to a suspension of volatility.

    3. 2022 the foundation for the future of crypto-currency payments?

    CBDCs bring us to the topic of payments, because as investors increasingly use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to hedge against inflation, it is unclear whether the general public is doing so in order to receive compensation

    This is what leads Fawad Razaqzada to predict that an increase in the use of payments will follow an increase in the use of investments: "This trend is likely to accelerate as more and more institutions move forward imply. So there is no doubt in my mind that 2022 could set a new record of cryptocurrency transactions for payment for real goods and services, "he said.

    Cryptocurrencies are increasingly used and "the number of people making payments is growing rapidly. Stablecoins have a market cap of over $ 125 billion and are used to make payments," Lou Kerner said.
    Because according to him, crypto-currencies are already used to motivate members of the community to create value, whether in games or social networks.
    “As e-commerce grows, we expect this business to continue to grow in 2022 and beyond,” he said.

    2022 could therefore be a solid base year for cryptocurrency payments.

    4. 3 top expert predictions for crypto currencies in 2022.

    a. Due to the Ethereum blockchain's transition to proof of stake, the price of ether will rise much faster than the price of Bitcoin. - Tom Higgins.

    b. By 2022, Bitcoin may have overtaken stocks as the most valuable asset. - Mike McGlone, Cryptocurrency Analyst.

    c. The market value of the crypto-economy will grow from $ 3 trillion in 2021 to over $ 7.5 trillion in 2022. - Rohit Talwar, CEO of analysis and research firm.


    Without a doubt, in view of all of the above cryptocurrency has a turbulent future in store for us in 2022, it is therefore advantageous for users and future users of cryptocurrency to get started now; this is the moment, for example, to choose good platforms like Gate.io in order to be well supported in 2022 because Gate.io is full of essential features; you can trade in cryptocurrency markets, trade on margin with 10x leverage, lend on margin or borrow funds, participate in periodic investment plans, invest in IEOs through its Gate.io platform Startup, perpetual swap contracts and more.
