QuickSwap has partnered with Crypto.com in a program that lets investors purchase QUICK with fiat money at low fees for staking on the QuickSwap platform. Crypto.com aims to reach 1 billion users in 2022. The arrangement promises to bring more investors to QuickSwap and boost its token's value over time.

QuickSwap crypto's price prediction

At about $400, QuickSwap has pulled back more than 70 percent from its all-time high of about $1,600 reached in April 2021. The pullback has left QuickSwap's market cap at only $130 million, lower than UniSwap's, PancakeSwap's, and SushiSwap's market caps of $12 billion, $3 billion, and $1.1 billion, respectively.

As more investors bring their money to cryptocurrencies in pursuit of superior returns and portfolio diversification, QuickSwap should see more activity in 2022. That activity could help the crypto reclaim its $1,600 peak and reach another record high.
