Price Prediction of Tezos (XTZ):
Tezos (XTZ)’s focus on project development is the main reason for its market grip. In the case of most of the cryptos, they create a lot of hard forks that command the chain. But unlike most of the cryptos, the XTZ team proposed that the digital commons be in charge of arranging gradual improvements for the platform. On top of that, in order to inculcate complete decentralization, the crypto team introduced formal verification and incentives for developers. Recently, the value of Tezos hiked by more than 18% when the news regarding the launch of a new platform, designed by the Coinbase, came out. According to experts and analysts, there is a bearish trend in Tezos right now but its long term trends seem to be bullish and crypto may touch $5 mark around EOY.
