Often referred to as “PayPal 2.0,” Request Network is a new type of payment system platform that allows anyone to request a payment (a Request Invoice) for which the recipient can pay in a secure way.
It is built on top of the Ethereum network, making it an ERC20 token. All of the information is stored in a decentralized authentic ledger. This results in cheaper, easier, and more secure payments. It also allows for a wide range of automation possibilities.
Request Network is a decentralized platform that enables anyone to request P2P payments, and makes business to business or business to client invoicing easier and cheaper as well. Request Network will definitely impact existing online payment systems such as PayPal, Stripe and powerhouse credit cards institutions (like Visa, MasterCard, etc.) by providing a cheaper and faster alternative.
Another thing to note here is that the Request Network is designed to work with any currency, fiat and crypto, and the receiver can decide to receive it in a specific currency.
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.
Captainaltcoin’s REQ Price Prediction 2021
REQ, as the rest of the market, is tied at the hip of bitcoin’s price action. If bitcoin embarks on another bull run, REQ can hope for one as well. Bitcoin usually has a cool-off phase after its mega bull runs and that is when the altcoins take over and have a field day with the bulls, often doubling or tripling their price within days.
With the pandemic breakout, the world was sent into hybernation for couple of months and it reflected negatively on the cryptocurrencies, sending bitcoin downhill as we witnessed even 40% daily losses. However, situation quickly stabilized and bitcoin as the flagbearer took the crypto market back up. We are in a major bull run since the summer and, if we are listening to the analytics from social media and journalistic desks, we are far away from its local zenith.

What this means for REQ price in 2021?
As long as bitcoin is in the main role and pulling upwards, there is little room for REQ to shine. It will, however, increase its USD denominated value thanks to the overall rise in crypto prices. Nevertheless, REQ to BTC ratio will probably slump, possibly to all-time lows. This means that it is best to keep your funds in bitcoin until it reaches its provisional peak, opening the doors for the altcoin to enter the scene. REQ will not be among the top candidates to record big gains, as the money usually flows from bitcoin profits to bluechip altcoins and big cap coins before trickling down to the less known and smaller projects. This project seems to be on life support and it got overrun by many newer, more exciting projects.
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”
Request Network Coin (REQ) Future Outlook
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 REQ be among those 5%?
Use case is definitely interesting but the implementation is miserable. The team appears to be incompetent to pull off what they jotted down in their whitepaper. Add to that a very toxic and disappointed community, REQ seems to be heading to zero, dying a slow death.
Most of altcoins simulate activity to prevent exit-scam accusations from holders but they are well aware that their project is a dead end, a sinking ship with a crew that left it long time ago. REQ looks like one of those projects.
All of this summed up means one thing: REQ might live through couple of orchestrated and, for a regular trader, completely unpredictable pumps but the majority of time will be murky sideways trading with small volume and no significant interest from the market.
Price will heavily depend on what BTC will do and since many analysts think BTC will not be making big moves in this year, it is hard to expect REQ will do them either. The price will probably stagnate and record slow-moving depreciation or appreciation depending on the team activity, potential technological breakthrough or high-level partnership.
Market prediction for Request Network – REQ Price 2021
With the market being completely unpredictable, forecasting the cryptocurrency price is really more of a gamble and luck rather than a data driven guesstimate.
Let’s throw a glance at the eminent publications and personalities, and their predictions regarding the REQ price, which will give us another point of view to consider:
Cryptoground.com is cryptocurrecy prediction algorithm that is moderately bullish on most of coins, similarly on REQ token as well. The forecast REQ to climb up to $0.09 per token by EOY, which means a 4-5x increase in comparison to the current price.
Walletinvestor is a popular website that does technical analysis-based price predictions of various cryptocurrencies and traditionally has a skeptical outlook for most coins, including REQ. According to them, REQ is expected to drop and be two times less valuable $0.012 per token in one year.
Trading beasts is much more bullish on Request Network token and forecasts that REQ can climb to around $0.19 within a year which means it will essentially grow 10x in value in the next year.
Digitalcoinprice gave a moderately optimistic prediction saying that by 2020 end, REQ might be worth two times more than now – around $0.05 per token.
