Ethereum Classic Price Prediction 2023 – 2025 – 2030 | ETC Price Forecast

In this guide, we will voice our own and market’s opinion on ETC future while discussing Ethereum Classic price forecast for 2023 and beyond.

Please bear in mind that you should take this and any other prediction with a grain of salt since predicting anything is a thankless task, let alone predicting the future of a novel, highly volatile financial asset like Ethereum Classic.

Now, let’s head into it. Before we delve deep into the Ethereum Classic price prediction and answer questions if ETC is a good investment or not, why will ETC succeed or fail or why will Ethereum Classic price rise or drop, let’s quickly throw a glance at what is ETC and its to date history.

You can buy ETC on, Coinbase or Binance. You can store it on Ledger Nano S, Trezor T or eToro wallet.

Ethereum Classic Intro

Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a fork of Ethereum. Or, as some would say, Ethereum is a fork of Ethereum Classic… depending on who you ask and can be a little confusing. Either way, the original Ethereum blockchain is split into two competing versions. The DAO aka the Decentralized Autonomous Organization was a complex smart contract which was going to revolutionize Ethereum forever. It was basically going to be a decentralized venture capital fund which was going to fund all future DAPPS made in the eco-system.

Within 28 days of its formation, it accumulated over $150 million worth of ether in a crowdsale. At that time, it had 14% of all ether tokens issued to date. On 17th June 2016, someone exploited this very loophole in the DAO and siphoned away one-third of the DAO’s funds. That’s around $50 million dollars. The aftermath of the hack split the community: one part wanted to do a hard fork and create a new chain with the separation right before the DAO attack. That gave birth to Ethereum.

The ones that were not in agreement with the hard fork and insisted on the immutability of the blockchain stayed in what is now called Ethereum Classic.

ETC is a smart contracts platform that has some of the largest network activity of any blockchain, consistently higher than Bitcoin Cash, and neck-and-neck with Litecoin. They have multiple developer teams, all of whom are committed to the long term ETC vision. They are in the top-10 in programmer activity (measured by code commits). They have numerous sources of funding, and we continue to grow, day-by-day, commit-by-commit, line-by-line of code to create a bullet-proof network that anyone can use.

Both blockchains are identical in every way up until block 1920000 where the hard-fork to refund The DAO token holders was implemented, meaning that all the balances, wallets, and transactions that happened on Ethereum until the hard-fork are still valid on the Ethereum Classic Blockchain. After the hard-fork, the blockchains were split in two and act individually.

The battle between Ethereum and Ethereum Classic is both an ethical and ideological one.

Ethereum Classic Price Prediction

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.

Ethereum Classic Price Prediction 2023 

High inflation and extremely unsafe macro situation reflected heavily on Bitcoin price in 2022. When we take the internal crypto troubles with big players like FTX, Celsius, Voyager, Luna going down, 2023 is not looking too good for the bulls. We will probably see a lot of boring sideways price action with a tendency to slip lower with each minor market tremor.

What will ETC be worth in 5 years?

The price of ETC in 5 years could lie around $ 0, according to CaptainAltcoin’s prediction model.

Ethereum Classic Price Prediction 2030 – 2040

What Ethereum Classic will be worth in 2030?

Our forecasting model sees Ethereum Classic reaching $0 in 2030.

What Ethereum Classic will be worth in 2040?

Our forecasting model sees Ethereum Classic reaching $0 in 2040.

Will Ethereum Classic replace / surpass / overtake Bitcoin?

No, Ethereum Classic will not replace or overtake BTC.

How high will Ethereum Classic go?

Our forecasting model sees Ethereum Classic price crashing and dropping to near 0 in a distanced future.

Is Ethereum Classic worth buying?

We do not see a bright future for Ethereum Classic. It is worth buying only as a short-term speculation with a good exit strategy. Ethereum Classic is not a good long-term hold.

Is Ethereum Classic a good investment?

Ethereum Classic is not a good investment in our opinion. Why? Well, it faces a fierce competition from other similar crypto projects, does not stand out with its technology and innovation, does not have a genuine community (not counting speculators and hype-chasing crowd) and the team behind the project is unproven.

Can Ethereum Classic make you a millionaire?

No, Ethereum Classic can not make you a millionaire as we do not see it doing a 10x price increase any time in the future.

How much will Ethereum Classic be worth?

For the short-term future, it could reach $7.53. In the long-term (8-10 years), it will most likely drop to 0 or thereabouts.

Why will Ethereum Classic succeed and go up in price?

Ethereum Classic has a slim chance of succeeding. It has no first mover advantage, it brings no unique value proposition, it has a weak team and small community behind it. All of this summed up prevents Ethereum Classic to succeed and rise in price for the long-term.

What is the short-term prediction for Ethereum Classic?

Ethereum Classic will reach $7.53 in the next 90 days, which is a 58.8% change over the current price which hovers around $18.28.

Ethereum Classic Price Prediction Today - What will be the price of Ethereum Classic tomorrow?

Ethereum Classic will hover around $18.79 tomorrow.

Ethereum Classic (ETC) Future Outlook

The majority of projects will fail — some startups are created just to gather funds and disappear, some would not handle the competition, but most are just ideas that look good on paper, but in reality, are useless for the market. 

Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum said:

“There are some good ideas, there are a lot of very bad ideas, and there are a lot of very, very bad ideas, and quite a few scams as well”

As a result, over 95% of successful ICOs and cryptocurrency projects will fail and their investors will lose money. The other 5% of projects will become the new Apple, Google or Alibaba in the cryptoindustry. Will ETC be among those 5%?

A clear no. Why?

There is a decreasing interest in crypto projects based on the mining algorithm (with an exception to BTC), PLUS – ETH stole it thunder. It is simple as that. The race between two Ethereums was a winner takes all game and Vitalik’s Ethereum took the W in this one. ETC will slowly bleed out to its death, while probably living through multiple chain hacks in the process.

Why will Ethereum Classic (ETC) Succeed?

Because if anything goes wrong when Ethereum switches to Casper, everyone will rush over to ETC. This scenario is highly unlikely, though.

IOT – internet of things; the devs over at ETC are working on getting the ETC blockchain to be able to speak to ADA as well as ETH.

It is a proof of work, Turing-complete blockchain, with the cryptocurrency and smart contracts both fully integrated in the base layer. The ETC ecosystem is still very focused on immutability as a core value, not having any formal governance mechanism, and guaranteeing emergent decision making thru free adoption of the network and rule changes. ETH, which currently shares the same proof of work +Turing complete niche, will very likely migrate to PoS and sharding which are both less secure technologies.

For a cryptocurrency that suffered a serious 51% attack, this is some solid resilience. It is like Ethereum Classic (ETC) community has not been affected at all by the recent attack.

Why will Ethereum Classic (ETC) Fail?

Because of Ethereum.

Lack of security on the network due to the low prices of tokens and consequently, low miners’ interest that all culminates into a low hashrate. We already had a foretaste what happens when you have weak network hashrate – you get attacked by malicious actors. Even though ETC surprisingly shook off the event, the taint on its record, credibility and integrity stays. It was supposed to be enshrined, immutable chain but it got easily manipulated and double spent.

Another reason for the potential downfall in the future for Ethereum Classic is that the developers of the original Ethereum Blockchain switched to Ethereum but not towards Ethereum Classic.

Will ETC reach $100?

Highly doubtful that ETC ever sees those heights. Zero is a more plausible option.

Is ETC dead?

No, certainly not. Judging by the teams activity on social media, developers activity on GitHub and coin’s presence on exchanges we can safely say ETC is far from a dead project. However, community bustle has died down and is only sporadic these days. That is a bad omen for any project.

  1. Can you be any more biased and Negative against ETC? You fat Faggot.

  2. I have read acticles that show both sides of the argument. I feel like it will fall more to the better side, the way the other guy broke down the actual technology was more convincing i could be wrong but heck no one really knows what’s going to happen. I read articles that said bitcoin was going to fail since 2011 same thing with ETH. This article was based more on how you see it and how you feel about it, i would of liked to see more actual facts because facts don’t really care about your feelings. and if i remember correctly the other article said that ETC is the only one that hasn’t been hacked. ETH and BTC and DOGE have all been hacked and people have stolen coins. Correct me if im wrong but that’s what I read.

    • Actually, ETC had a double spend incident more than once (two or three times, I am not sure and I am in a hurry to check it RN). So, ETC is a PoW coin with a very low security due to the low hash-rate on the network. It is a dead project, holders will face this harsh reality once it really dies = once it starts getting delisted from exchanges (that is the only real way crypto projects die).

  3. Well this guy was incredibly WRONG. Good thing I didn’t read this horrible article when it came out. ETC is going through the roof!!!

  4. DAMN. Could anyone have been more WRONG about ETC??? This guy sounds like a fool now.

  5. what a hack… even now etc is building, its hash rate is extremely high and now very secure. Its not often you find something like etc to get in on the ground floor years after it started.. yet here we are. Im buying in, more dapps, meme coins and nfts are popping up every day on the chain.
