3 min reading

The research team predicted various aspects regarding crypto in 2022, including the price, regulations, Bitcoin's hash rate, and also the future of XRP and ADA.

Arcane Research, a blockchain data research company, turned to look at the year in its concluding report for 2021 and made forecasts for crypto markets in 2022.

The Tuesday "The Weekly Update" report from Arcane emphasises Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) but also includes other significant coins, decentralised finance (DeFi), meme coins, non-fungible tokens (NFT), derivatives, and other topics. On every aspect discussed in the research, Arcane predicted what would arise in 2022.

Bitcoin will surpass the S&P 500 in 2022

According to the report, Bitcoin has outpaced the S&P 500 index through 2021. This year, Bitcoin has gained 73 % whereas the S&P 500 is up 28 %, and Arcane expects Bitcoin will keep rising next year. The S&P 500 index is a standard that includes the 500 largest firms listed on American stock exchanges.

XRP and Cardano will exit the top 10

Binance Coin (BNB) has had enormous gains this year, hitting at almost 1,600 % in May and ending the year up 1,344 %, according to Arcane. Depending on this, and also the market capitalization growth of altcoins like Solana (SOL) and Terra (LUNA), and also the NFT mania, analysts believe XRP and Cardano (ADA) will fall out of the top 10.

ETH will remain to be outpaced by alternate layer ones

Although ETH has surpassed BTC by 455 % to 73 % this year, various layer-one blockchains have surpassed ETH. Standalone, base-layer blockchains are known as layer one.

By the end of 2021, traditional gaming firms will be progressively incorporating NFTs

According to DappRadar, blockchain games like Splinterlands and Alien Worlds have roughly 526,000 daily active users, indicating that this year in crypto has been marked in no little part by large NFT sales. Traditional gaming companies will venture into the NFT sector in 2022, according to Arcane, to capitalise on the growing market.

More crypto firms will go public, with some having valuations exceeding $5 billion

Coinbase went public on April 14 this year, and it now has a market valuation of $72 billion. The five largest crypto companies set to go public in 2022 are all presently worth more than $1 billion. Arcane thinks that a lot of others, like crypto exchange Bullish, which is presently valued at $9 billion, will be valued at more than $5 billion.

By the end of 2022, Bitcoin ETFs will own more than 1 million BTC

In 2021, several Bitcoin futures exchange-traded funds (ETFs) were established. They now own around 846,309 BTC, and Arcane predicts that the trend will continue in 2022.

Hashrate will expand even more around the globe

Bitcoin's worldwide hash rate dropped after China restricted mining, only to recover almost as soon. The United States now has the highest hash rate in the world, after Kazakhstan and Russia. Miners, according to Arcane, will spread even more into countries like Latin America.
