What is Orion?
Orion is a project that is building a gateway to the entire crypto market by aggregating every CEX (centralized exchange), DEX (decentralized exchange) and swap pool into one decentralized platform, with the help of the Orion Terminal.
It is the first of its kind that allows users to access all kinds of markets directly with a wallet, without any account or KYC requirements. Connecting to, and aggregating multiple major exchanges into one order book provides plentiful liquidity and the best prices for every trade.
At the heart of this protocol is Orion’s native token: ORN. It is an internal currency and utility token that can be used for trading, staking, and for over a dozen of other functions that will be detailed in the use case below.
Orion Protocol (ORN) Price Prediction 2021
Below we take a look at Orion and examine some details as well as predictions to estimate a reasonable price for 2021, as well as for the upcoming years. It should be noted that while price predictions are based on data, and often are analyzed by AI, they should never be taken as financial advice or a solid basis for an investment. It is always highly recommended users do their own research into the projects whose tokens they wish to invest in.
Below is a tabular overview of how will ORN develop in the short-term (for the next 90 days), according to our prediction model:
On Orion, ORN is at the center of 18 revenue streams, these streams include: the NFT Aggregator, the Orion Liquidity Boost Plugin, Orion Global Liquidity Pool, Orion Lending, Orion Oracle and much, much more. Some of these features are not yet available however, but all of them are planned to launch by the end of the year.
In addition to facilitating those functions, ORN is used as a utility token for benefits like fee discounts, decentralized brokerage trading, ccn and DeFi solutions.
Being at the center of such a vast ecosystem is a good indicator, as the more use a token has, the more valuable it can become.
According to data gathered from Messari and Coinmarketcap:
Both the total supply and max supply sit at 100,000,000
Of that amount, ~25,575,000 are currently in circulation
The upcoming inflation rate for ORN has not yet been calculated
Some supplemental data
According to Coinmarketcap, 99% of the current supply is held by whales
Messari currently calculates ORN’s market cap dominance at 0.0122%
If you would have bet on the right coins this year you could easily have 10xed your capital…
You could even have made as much as 100x which means you could have turned $100 into as much as 10k.
Experts believe this will happen again in 2021, the only question is which coin do you bet on?
My friend and cryptocurrency expert Dirk is personally betting on 3 under-the-radar cryptocurrencies for huge ROI in 2021..

Coinmarketcap currently gives it a market rank of #247
- 6% for advisors and partners
- 12% for the team
- 13% for marketing
- 24% for the Orion foundation
- 45% for token sales
Since the max supply has been determined, it means that no more than a maximum of 100,000,000 ORN tokens will ever exist. This is a positive as the creation of new tokens and their introduction to the market can cause inflation, which reduces the value of the token depending on how many new tokens have been created.
Orion was founded by CEO Alexey Koloskov in 2018, and the platform itself launched in 2020. He used to be the chief architect at Waves Platform prior to Orion, and had a lot of experience in building complex blockchain solutions.
Among his team are experienced individuals and knowledgeable advisors, most of whom have been part of successful projects prior to joining Orion – the entire team can be viewed here in detail.
The project’s Twitter account is active, posting updates, retweeting relevant events, and sharing news articles. However, the account frequently shares articles that promote the ORN coin/token, which on its own isn’t a red flag, but promoting the price, be it directly or indirectly, is a move that should warrant some caution.
Here’s an example of such a tweet, the thumbnail of which may come across as a little striking. Teams should be careful with the messages that their posts or reposts may convey; while these instances don’t mean the project is a scam, they may give off the wrong idea.
In addition to their Twitter they have a blog page where members post news and updates, and a news page where they share external news articles that talk about Orion, crypto, blockchain technology, DeFi… Etc.
In terms of brand image, they use clean designs with a combination of warm and cool colors, and express in a modern and exciting tone, not shying away from using emojis and hashtags in their tweets.
They have ~70,000 followers on Twitter, where their tweets see hundreds of likes, and dozens of retweets and replies. Over on Telegram they have ~16,000 members, and their subreddit is home to ~2,000 members.
Community activity relative to the size can be described as on the low end of moderate. The subreddit for example sees about a post a day with varying levels of discussion despite having only ~2,000 members.
Exchanges & Wallet Support
ORN can be bought and sold on around 13 exchanges, and there are around 4 well known and trusted wallets that support it.

ORN Price Prediction 2022
Our prediction model sees a temporary switch to a bear market at the beginning of 2022 before we move onto another leg up in Q3 & Q4 of 2022.
Orion Protocol Price Prediction 2025 – 2030 – 2040
Our prediction model sees ORN crashing in 2025 to $0 per coin.
ORN price in 2030 & 2040 will be zero as we don’t see a bright future for it in the distant future.
Where & How To Buy ORN

How To Buy ORN
The process of buying crypto can differ from exchange to exchange, but here are solid guidelines on how to buy ORN:
- Select an exchange that supports ORN and check for KYC (account verification) requirements and available payment methods.
- Create an account on your preferred exchange.
- Purchase ORN with your preferred payment method.
Already have an account on an exchange that supports ORN?
- Purchase ORN with your preferred payment method.
- Swap some of your tokens with ORN.
Note: When buying or swapping tokens, some exchanges may have minimum amounts in place; usually these amounts are $10-$20 in the token’s equivalent. Additionally, most exchanges issue fees for purchases and swaps, these fees and their conditions differ from platform to platform, which is why it’s worth comparing them to minimize costs.
Some exchanges may offer wallets if they support ORN, in case they don’t, it means that while you still own the tokens, you can not send them to another wallet or receive any ORN’s from another address. Do note however that these practices may differ from platform to platform.
Nevertheless, there do exist trusted wallets in which you can store your ORN, including:
Note: It is important to keep in mind that not every exchange offers users the private keys to their wallets, meaning that although the tokens still belong to the user, they are ultimately stored on the exchange. Furthermore, some exchanges may have minimum withdrawal amounts and withdrawal fees in place, and these fees differ from exchange to exchange. Deposit fees are extremely rare, as exchanges want to encourage users to store assets on their platform.
Summing It All Up
Aggregators have a sharp advantage over traditional exchanges since they can provide better prices and more liquidity, further still, Orion is special since it aggregates both centralized and decentralized exchanges, as well as swap pools, delivering far more than its counterparts.
The fact that users can freely and quickly access markets that would have otherwise required KYC verification is a very strong selling point, and if Orion succeeds in delivering all its promises, may become one of the best platforms to trade on.
Predictors indicate a gradual growth, which is a sound assumption considering the facts at hand, and the lack of direct competition makes such scenarios likely. It should be taken into account however that any investments made should always be done with a clear and objective state of mind, disregarding emotional elements like hype.
