ANKR's price prediction after the Coinbase listing

With ANKR's price climbing 1,400 percent in 2021 and 9,000 percent in the past year, investors have started asking what might come next. For example, should investors be buying more now or sell and wait to buy the dips? ANKR's price forecast is generally bullish. 

Walletinvestor predicts that ANKR's price will remain in the $0.12 range for the next year. But by 2025–2026, the price should be above $0.30. Digital Coin Price predicts that ANKR's price will rise steadily through 2025 when the token will be worth as much as $0.23. The token should keep rising, reaching $0.35 in 2028, according to the Digital Coin Price forecast. Trading Beasts' price prediction for ANKR shows that the token will pass $0.16 in 2022 and shoot to as high as $0.21 before 2025.

Is ANKR a good investment after Coinbase listing?

With ANKR price rocketing 9,000 percent in the past year, investors have made good money with the token. As ANKR price is still forecast to keep climbing, there is still room to make money with it. 

As the Ankr project expands, the ANKR token should see an increase in usage and demand, which would provide a catalyst for the price to keep going up. The ANKR token might also be attractive to investors seeking cheap crypto investments.

Also, ANKR's price could benefit from scarcity, just like bitcoin. There are 7 billion ANKR tokens in circulation now. The token’s supply is capped at 10 billion coins. As the supply limit approaches, there's an incentive for investors to rush into the token. This is the same reason bitcoin's price has been surging. More than 18.6 million bitcoins have been mined, which brings the supply closer to the limit of 21 million coins. The scarcity has made bitcoin look like digital gold, and investors big and small are rushing to buy.

How to buy ANKR token

The crypto exchange support for ANKR is expanding, which makes it easy for investors seeking to buy the token. In addition to Coinbase, you can now buy ANKR coin on major exchanges like Binance, Huobi, Bitmax, Bitlinka, and UpBit. Investors can also buy ANKR on eToro.

The first step to buy the ANKR token is setting up an account with the exchange of your choice. On some exchanges, you can purchase the token with fiat currency like the dollar and you can even use your credit card. On other exchanges, you might need to use an intermediary cryptocurrency. For example, that would involve first buying bitcoin with your dollars on the exchange that supports that type of transaction. Then, you would transfer the bitcoin to the exchange that offers ANKR to exchange it for the token.
