Future price predictions of Stellar lumens or XLM
It is a fact that XLM’s value is also tied to the price of BTC, so, if the market experiences another bull, XLM will definitely rise but, as this is really unlikely to happen, many analysts believe that there is nothing much to expect from it this year. According to Long Forecast, XLM is predicted to reach $0.30 by 2019 end, which is not very high than its current price. According to Mega Crypto, XLM can reach $5.10 by 2019 end, and this can be done only if there are no major security flaws in the stellar network. Monetize Info predicted that XLM could trade around $2-$ three by this year and this can be facilitated by its partnership with Stripe, Deloitte, and IBM.
The crypto market being highly volatile currently, it is very unpredictable to say anything clearly. Until the market attains stability, it is not a good idea to invest in XLM for long term basis.
