Before we get into the latest Forecasts, let us look at the latest news and evaluate if Chainlink is a Good Investment.

Chainlink Latest News

  • Recently, there was an unusual surge of LINK token withdrawals on Binance. Nearly 4.7 million LINK tokens, worth $31.58 million, were swiftly withdrawn from Binance across 81 newly created wallets. This unusual pattern of withdrawals was initially detected on September 18, 2023
  • Harris & Trotter LLP, a top-tier accounting firm, has announced that it will offer third-party confirmations for Chainlink’s Proof of Reserve.
  • Chainlink has expanded its reach by launching its Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) on the Arbitrum One Mainnet.

Chainlink is a decentralized Oracle Network that transfers real-world data to smart contracts on blockchain networks like Ethereum and Solana. It uses LINK tokens to validate and convert off-chain data, enabling secure computations both on and off-chain. Chainlink’s services benefit data consumers, like DeFi firms, and data providers who sell data or use it in smart contracts. However, it faces competition from other Oracle networks and potential redundancy due to built-in Oracle functionalities in some blockchains. Over the years, Chainlink’s performance has been competitive compared to Ethereum, making it a moderately compelling investment.

Chainlink Price Prediction 2023-2030

In order to reach $100, Chainlink needs to rise by nearly 15 times. At $100, Chainlink’s market cap would be about $50 Billion. This is higher than the market cap of BNB and XRP. It took BNB a year to rise from 3 Billion to 50 Billion during the excesses of the COVID-induced liquidity period. Ethereum on the other hand rose from $3B to $50B in less than one year. Therefore to answer the question, there are 3 ways in which Chainlink could reach $100

  • Another major liquidity event. This is unlikely soon but one cannot rule out another period of excess in the next 5-10 years.
  • Secular Growth of 25%, would enable LINK to reach $50B market cap in 12 years
  • Major Burn event

Considering all the above, it is likely Chainlink has a good chance of reaching $100 in the next 10 years. However, there are numerous variables – Macro Economy, Competition, and Execution that are not predictable to the fullest extent. So there is a high degree or risk in this forecast accuracy.

In order to reach $1000, LINK has to rise about 150 times. This translates to a market cap of $500 Billion. From a practical point of view, the following challenges remain

  • Will blockchain be widely accepted over the next 8 years? The jury is out on this
  • Will smart contracts take off as much as predicted? The jury is out on this as well

Should smart contracts rise significantly, LINK is well placed to grow quite rapidly over the next few years. However, large blockchains like Ethereum are yet to demonstrate the massive need for smart contracts for businesses and consumers. It may happen over the next few years.

Considering the above two analyses, LINK is better placed to reach $100 but a Market Cap of $500 Billion (at $1000) is unlikely to happen given the current state of affairs.

The LINK token must grow by 700 times to reach $5000. This translates to a market cap of $ 2.5 Trillion. This is lower than Apple’s Market Cap today. It took Apple 40 years to reach this level. In order for Chainlink to reach $5000, it will have to

  • Innovate substantially more
  • Be used widely across the globe

It is too early to make such a long-term prediction.

In order to reach $10000, LINK will need to rise 1400 fold. This translates to a market cap of $5.2 Trillion. No company on the planet has reached this level and those that are relatively closer are exceptional companies dominant or inventive in their sectors. Chainlink is not such a company (at the moment at least). Chainlink will not reach $10000 unless 90% of the Tokens are burnt.
