Zilliqa crypto’s 2025 price prediction

In March 2020, Zilliqa's price fell to what still persists as its all-time low. While that scared off many investors, some had faith and accumulated the dip. Those have seen their investment grow nearly 3,000 percent at the current price.

What can you expect if you buy the current dip in ZIL token price? In the past three years, Zilliqa's price has climbed at an average annual rate of 140 percent. If it maintains that momentum, Zilliqa could be worth about $3 by 2025, which implies a return on investment of nearly 4,000 percent.

The metaverse economy, which Facebook parent Meta Platforms and other companies are building, is forecast to be worth trillions of dollars. If you’re seeking exposure to the metaverse or you just like the DeFi sector outlook, you might want to hold Zilliqa crypto.

You can buy the ZIL token with the U.S. dollar on Binance, Bitfinex, Bittrex, HitBTC, and Exrates. Alternatively, you can buy Zilliqa with other cryptocurrencies or stablecoins like BUSD and Tether USDT on Crypto.com, Gate, or KuCoin.
