Following the ascension of bitcoin as a cryptocurrency, a number of other altcoins that serve a specific niche have emerged. 

Civic coin, launched in 2017 by Vinny Lingham and Jonathan Smith, is one of the latest innovations that offers flexible identity verification using both artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain-based technology. 

Not only does this make the Civic altcoin unique in its technology and use case, but the project saw a successful initial coin offering (ICO) in July 2017 where 33% of its 1bn CVC tokens were offered in a public sale. 

Other than selling tokens to the public for the purpose of financing projects, Civic’s ICO was significant in that the goal was to accelerate network growth and achieve a drop in the incremental cost per user. The company notably stated that 33% of its tokens remained in the company’s inventory, while another 33% was allocated for distribution to invectivise participation in the ecosystem. 

In this article, we cover the most important aspects of the Civic coin, as well as delving deep into what factors will shape Civic price prediction going forward.

What is the Civic coin (CVC)?

As a leading innovator in digital identity solutions, Civic is building an ecosystem designed to facilitate secure and on-demand access to identity verification (IDV)  services. 

Their vision is for a world where background and personal verification checks no longer need to be undertaken from the ground up. The CVC token itself was created in order to remove inefficiencies, enhance security and privacy and improve user experience. But how does the CVC coin disrupt the current IDV supply chain?

Well, blockchain offers a solution to the problem of combining accessibility with privacy and security. Records can be held securely using end-to-end encryption, while also being openly authenticated, referenced and documented. 

Frictions and inefficiencies within the IDV industry have both financial and social costs. However, what CVC coin does is offer an entirely new form of settlement between participants in an identity-related transaction. 

Importantly, CVC was listed on one of the world’s best-known cryptocurrency exchanges, Coinbase, on 6 November 2020, thus exposing the token to a wider audience. 

What is the Civic coin used for?

The CVC paid in a transaction is distributed to the validator and the user as a reward for sharing information. The proportion in which they share the CVC is defined by a programmable smart contract and can be adjusted by consensus of the ecosystem participants. 

Using a CVC token to facilitate transactions in the Civic ecosystem has the following benefits:

  • It can be used across any number of jurisdictions, retaining a single uniform method of settlement
  • Settlements are performed automatically and irrefutably within a smart contract
  • Incentives can be managed in a way that drives ecosystem effects for the benefit of all participants.

In other CVC coin news, the Civic platform, which the token is based on, completed a technology integration with Solana Blockchain earlier this year, allowing for improved privacy, regulatory compliance and ease of use.

Latest developments for Civic coin: Fundamental analysis 

Considering that the cryptocurrency utilises blockchain technology in a rather unique way to offer a secure and flexible identification process, the CVC token has gained traction within the industry. Its core underlying technology means that the specialised coin shields the ecosystem from extraneous considerations that can make other cryptocurrencies volatile. 

Having a unique and specialised token for accessing identity services also provides stability for users since the security risks within the IDV sector are naturally higher. 

Unencrypted personal data can be susceptible to hacking or leaking, because most user data is stored in a centralised database. The ability to store and share information digitally can come with the risk of data breaches, and the consequences can be severe – both for individuals whose data is lost, and for the organisations who have to deal with the legal and reputational repercussions. 

Hence, blockchain-powered cryptocurrencies work to solve this security problem for organisations since they offer maximum protection of users’ sensitive data. This is what makes CVC especially promising. 

Also, the news of technology integration with Solana bolsters the possibilities for CVC mainstream adoption, considering that the project makes identity verification processes fundamental to blockchain and the broader ecosystem. 

In essence, Civic uses a digital identity as a gateway for decentralised finance on the Solana blockchain, allowing for more reliable verification. Speed is another factor since customers are able to complete verification in only a matter of minutes, boosting the use case for CVC. 

Further to this, Civic partnered with Black Fire Innovation, a hospitality technology hub, earlier this year in order to provide age verification for its age-restricted vending machines. 

Risks ahead for the Civic coin 

The biggest risk currently facing the Civic cryptocurrency is high blockchain transaction fees, which could block mainstream adoption of both the coin and decentralised finance (DeFi) as a whole. 

For example, fees for transacting on the Ethereum network breached records this year, with the average fee currently sitting at $46.25. During times of high network congestion, these fees are known to rise even higher, slowing transactions down in the process. 

Bear in mind that with CVC, there is a total supply cap of 1bn. This form of limited supply may end up increasing the price once all the tokens are gone. 

Civic coin long-term price prediction: Buy, sell or hold?

In terms of a CVC price prediction, algorithm-based forecasting service Wallet Investor gives a positive forecast. Based on historical data, Wallet Investor sees the token going up to the $0.823 target price by November 2022, reaching $1.515 in November 2024 and hitting $1.865 by November 2025.

Digital Coin Price supports the bullish CVC crypto forecast, expecting the token future price to rise by 89% to $0.907 in November 2022. The forecasting company sees CVC growing 156.95% to $1.23 by November 2025. Although long-term Civic coin price predictions for 2030 are not yet available, DigitalCoinPrice expects the price to eventually hit $1.98 in November 2028. 

Technical analyst at CoinText, Ansh Rathod told capital.com:

“The six-month Civic chart shows the formation of a symmetrical triangle that is close to breaking out. A move above $17.60 in the coming days or weeks would signal the start of a bull run and investors can target a profit at $22 with a stop below the support zone at $14.50”.
