Before we dive into to predicting the Stellar future and XLM price forecast, let’s quickly sum up what awaits you in this article:
First, we take a look at what is Stellar- all about – in a quick rundown. Then we cover our own XLM price predictions and market XLM forecasts. We will also dip our toes into the far future of XLM and give our Stellar price predictions for 2023, 2025 and 2030.
We will also answer some of the most common questions about XLM price targets and how high it can go, like will XLM hit $10 or will XLM reach $100 and similar. We also give our opinion if Stellar is a good investment at all, why could it succeed or fail.
So, let’s get down to business and start the thankless task of predicting Stellar future.
XLM Price Prediction – Intro
Stellar Lumens is a cryptocurrency platform that focuses on remittance and cross-border payments.
Stellar is aiming to be an open financial system that gives people of all income levels access to low-cost financial services. These services include, but are not limited to:
- Mobile Branches
- Mobile Money
In addition to these services, one very powerful feature of the network is their Distributed Exchange. Users can liquidate/exchange their funds for other cryptocurrencies or fiat currencies using the platform’s exchange anchors.

Captain Altcoin’s Stellar Lumens Price Prediction for 2023
It is quite clear that cryptocurrency price predictions should be taken with a grain of salt, but there are factors to look out for that will almost certainly have a bearing on the future price of the wider cryptocurrency market. This includes:
- The level and nature of regulations imposed in dominating cryptocurrency markets
- The level of cryptocurrency adoption in the coming year and beyond
- The level of growth in the cryptocurrency futures market
- The utility of tokens and the ability of the underlying technology to solve real-world problems
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.
Stellar Lumen Price Prediction For The Next 90 Days
Below is a tabular overview of how will Stellar develop in the short-term (for the next 90 days), according to our prediction model:
Stellar Lumens 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.
CaptainAltcoin’s prediction model takes market sentiment into an account and reacts accordingly. Below is a month-by-month breakdown of the last months of 2022 and 2023:
Stellar Lumens Price Prediction 2025 – 2030 – 2040
Since we expect Stellar to be among the rare coins that will survive long enough to see 2025 and beyond, we expect its 2025 price to be:$ 0.2848
Stellar Lumens price in 2030 and beyond will be at least 2-5x of that price.
Why will Stellar succeed?
There are also numerous technological features that put Stellar into a pole position to take over the baton from XRP and record an actual real world utility and adoption. Here are some of the features worth highlighting:
Stellar makes it very easy to create, send and trade digital representations of all forms of money and convert between them on a single network, this will eventually be the way to convert money and all kinds of assets currency, stocks, gold, and so forth.
Public and non-profit
If you think Central Banks are going to issue their CBDC’s where the foundation taking care of the network is for profit, think again. Here again Stellar aim for the stars and hits. I’d count many of the for profit initiatives as unlikely to get any CBCD’s released on them.
Extremely cheap, fast transfer costs and scale
With bitcoin transactions costing an arm and a leg, Stellar shines like starlight yet again.
Even if xlm is to go up to 15USD which I think it will over the next 4-5 years. Given it gets 5-6 CBDC’s on the network in that time. The transaction cost will still be close to nothing. And with price surging we have a solution to ‘spam’ on the networks. It already handles millions of transactions/operations each day.
The Massive CDBC’ Market & Metcalfes law
Several countries are starting to move into or seriously consider CBDC’s, and this will make the network extremely valuable over time. Not valuable because it’s valuable, but valuable because it is extremely useful to people. Usefulness comes first and then value, and value and price are not the same. This is very easy to forget in todays crypto market.
In the world many people and governments are concerned with energy usage, and since Stellar is not a proof of work network, it is much, much more energy efficient. This matters and is likely to matter even more in the future
Why will Stellar – XLM fail?

Is Stellar dead?
Their communities on Reddit and Telegram are also active, although with notably lower engagement levels compared to 2017. Coin is also still listed on all major exchanges which indicates that XLM is far from a dead project.
All of this summed up means one thing: XLM 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 XLM 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.
Stellar is, just like all other cryptocurrencies, a risky investment. It does have higher probability of going up than down because of the deep pockets of Stellar Foundation and their tight connections with IBM.
We are advocates of moderately risky investing – invest most of your crypto portfolio in BTC (50%); 35% in a basket of big cap coins (like XLM) and the rest in small projects with huge upside. So, in this context, XLM is worth buying.
No, Stellar has its own blockchain and is not connected to Ethereum.
Yes, it can – if you own millions of XLM tokens. Right now, you would need around 12 million XLM tokens to be a millionaire. Even if it goes 10x, you would still need millions of tokens to be a millionaire in terms of USD.
For the short-term future, it is pretty safe bet that it won’t cross above $1. At $1 per XLM, the market cap of XLM would be just under $18 billion dollars which is pretty unrealistic from today’s perspective.
No, Stellar is not a PoW coin.
That is highly unlikely as it would mean a price increase of 1500x over the current levels. Assuming the BTC/XLM ratio stays the same, it would mean bitcoin is at $12.5 million per coin. It is out of realm of rational prediction.
