Compound is a decentralized algorithmic money market protocol running on the Ethereum blockchain that uses lending pools to facilitate loans in a variety of cryptocurrencies. Borrowers can take out collateralized loans, while lenders that make funds available to the lending pools can earn income on their deposits via specially-issued native tokens.
Put simply, Compound allows users to deposit cryptocurrency into lending pools for access by borrowers. Lenders then earn interest on the assets they deposit.
Once a deposit is made, Compound awards a new cryptocurrency called a cToken (which represents the deposit) to the lender. Examples of cTokens include cETH, cBAT and cDAI.
Each cToken can be transferred or traded without restriction, but it is only redeemable for the cryptocurrency initially locked in the protocol. This entire process is automatic and handled by the Compound code, meaning lenders can withdraw deposits at any time.
To incentivize this activity, Compound uses another cryptocurrency native to its service, called COMP. Every time a user interacts with a Compound market (by borrowing, withdrawing or repaying the asset), they are rewarded with additional COMP tokens.
While complex, the model has so far proved adept at attracting users and encouraging other DeFi cryptocurrencies to adopt its model.
Lending tokens on Compound are a great way to have your crypto holdings acquire compounding interest over time. Compound currently hosts 14 pools of different cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Uniswap and also stablecoins like DAI. Each of these pools has different lending and borrowing interest rates which are the same for everyone independently of how many tokens they supply or borrow. You can hold your position within a pool for as long as you want and freely withdraw your funds as you please.
Compound Price Prediction For The Next 90 Days
The whole crypto world is on a verge of a complete breakdown. Bitcoin has fallen 75% from its all-time high amid broader market declines caused by raging inflation and US Fed rate hikes. When add the most recent melt-downs of huge industry players (FTX, Celsius, Luna etc) into the equation, the horizont is murky and there will be more blood on the streets of the crypto town. Investors are selling risky assets and moving into more stable markets. Crypto is still perceived as a very risky play and hence the sell off. Our algo still sees a some green in 2023, especially in the second part of the year. This is reflected in our 2023 predictions. Right now, Bitcoin needs to find a bottom before we can move in the opposite direction and reverse the trend. Once Bitcoin settles in the new price range, altcoins will start to do the same - we have witnessed this scenario dozens of times in the distant and more recent history. Our price prediction model is bearish for the next 90 days with a hint of a bull market at the turn of the quarters from Q1 to Q2. We expect whales and other bigger players in the market to finish filling their bags around that time which will cause a typical and sudden crypto spike. CaptainAltcoin team created a price prediction model with a multi-faceted approach to crypto that takes into account both technical analysis and fundamental assessment of each project. Fundamentals that we evaluate are team, tokenomics, use case, community, marketing efforts, liquidity and exchange availability, hype & speculative potential and some other proprietary factors developed in our crypto lab.
Below is a tabular overview of how will COMP develop in the short-term (for the next 90 days), according to our prediction model:
COMP Price Prediction 2023
Our prediction model sees a temporary switch to a bear market at the beginning of 2023 before we move onto another leg up in Q3 & Q4 of 2023.
Compound Price Prediction 2025 – 2030 – 2040
Our prediction model sees COMP reaching new highs in 2025:$ 345.99
COMP price in 2030 & 2040 should be a couple of orders of magnitude higher than our 2025 prediction.
