What Will the Price of Steem be at the End of January 2020?

in LeoFinance •  9 months ago  (edited)


You know that you’re psychic. It’s time to prove it to the rest of us.

Post your prediction in the comment section below. The closest prediction will win the Steem/SBD liquid rewards from this post as well as a #steembasicincome unit and one PALcoin and one LEO token.

  • Predictions must be posted in a comment to this post by 11:59 p.m. Central Time on 7 January 2020. I think that’s 04:59 Universal Time on 8 January 2020. Meh, 11:59 p.m. Central.
  • Predictions must be in the form of U.S. Dollars per Steem. Okay kids, no more of this six digits after the decimal point stuff. Only predictions to the nearest penny.
  • The price as shown at 11:59 p.m. Central Time on 31 January on coingecko.com is what you’re aiming for. I am not eligible to post a prediction or win the contest. Also not eligible are my wife, my son, or my sister-in-law, all of whom have followed me down the rabbit hole and are now Steemians.
  • Optionally, but strongly encouraged, please also go out on a limb and guesstimate where the price of Steem will be a year from now. Two years from now. Five years from now.
  • In the event of a tie, the liquid rewards will be split among the people who tied.
  • Only humans may participate. No bots.
  • All contests need judges. I’m it for this one. No appeals to SCOTUS; my ruling is law.

There were 9 entrants in last month’s Steem price prediction contest.

Four months in a row, we’ve had a tie. This time, a three-way tie. @elbrava, @johnhtims, and @nutman each predicted 14¢, and were closest to December’s closing price.

They split the liquid rewards (4.897 Steem) and each received a #steembasicincome unit and one PALcoin and one LEO token:

13 центов. Это мой Прогноз. Извините,что пишу по Русски.

Do you mean $13.80 or $0.14?

My expectations:

  1. People and businesses start using communities and SMTs
  2. Blockchain inflation continues to decline on schedule
  3. Non-profit services like @burnpost and @sbdpotato get increasingly better at burning tokens in order to tune inflation levels to match usage.
  4. Increasing main-stream acceptance of blockchain/cryptocurrency technologies

Those expectations lead me to believe that there's eventually going to be a breakout in Steem's price, but I don't have any reason to think it will happen by the end of January. Here are my guesses.

End of January $0.12
1 year - $0.48
2 year - $1.20
5 year - $12.00

BTW, I'm a big fan of the idea of using Steem as a sort-of prediction market. I think this is a vastly underutilized capability for the blockchain.
