Stacks price prediction 2023
The current market sentiment is full of fear, uncertainty, and doubt (commonly known by the acronym FUD), as fears of FTX contagion mount. At the moment, it’s difficult to assess exactly how much damage has FTX collapse has done to the crypto industry, since some affected crypto companies may be already secretly insolvent due to highly leveraged positions, as we have seen in the aftermath of Terra's implosion.
According to our estimates, it will take months for the full scale of FTX bankruptcy to become clear, so the turning point for the crypto market won’t come before late Q1 to early Q2 2023, although for now, it seems that the industry has absorbed most of the damage.
Another market factor that should be taken into consideration is how successful will be the U.S. Federal Reserve’s efforts to curb inflation. For now, there is reason to believe that Fed is making some progress in its attempts to cool the overheating economy — on November 30, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell announced it’s time to slow the pace of coming rate hikes, which immediately triggered a positive reaction from both crypto and equity markets.
Given the above information, one can easily guess that there will be a considerable divergence between bullish and bearish Stacks 2023 price predictions due to multiple unknown factors. For this reason, we estimate that the bullish scenario will see Stacks price at $1.35 to $1.46. On the flip side, the unfavorable macro and ongoing FTX bankruptcy process may push the price of Stacks to $0.38-$0.21 lows.
Stacks price prediction 2024
In 2024, the global macroeconomic backdrop is likely to be more favorable to the crypto market, adding value to Stacks (STX) and other cryptos. However, the possibility of black swan events similar to the collapse of FTX cannot be completely ignored.
Keeping this in mind, we foresee the price of Stacks to climb as high as $1.72, with the more distant prospect of reaching $1.96 in 2024. The bearish scenario is likely to see Stacks (STX) trading between $1.56 and $1.24 in 2024.
