COTI coin price prediction: Can it regain momentum upwards?

By Nicole Willing


COTI coin price prediction

On the day decentralised payment processing platform COTI, the self styled coin of the internet, announced that the public testnet version of its stablecoin Djed had gone live, the price of the coin dropped 12% to $0.19.

Djed, announced last September, is an algorithmic stablecoin designed to stay at a steady value through the use of a combination of collateral and a reserve token called Shen. The testnet is to allow for proving the main functionalities of the protocol in a "fictitious and safe space using trial funds".

This fall may not be the fault of the Djed testnet. Today (6 May) other altcoins have also suffered including: Avalanche (AVAX) down 13%, Solano (SOL) down 10%, Cardano (ADA) down 8%, Polkadot (DOT) down 10% and Ethereum (ETH) down 7%.  

What are the underlying forces that are driving the price? What is a realistic future target price for COTI?

In this article we consider the latest COTI coin price prediction and market analysis to help you decide if it is worth a place in your portfolio. 

Developing partnerships to boost adoption

Developers at COTI are working in partnership with their peers at the Cardano blockchain and ADA cryptocurrency. Over the past few months it has announced a range  of new partnerships and new merchants for the ADA Pay digital payment platform.

On 15 December it announced a partnership with ADA Handle, an NFT-powered naming solution for the Cardano wallet address, in which the pair will "explore the possibility of allowing support for Handle address resolution directly within their ADA Pay platform".

On 21 December it announced it was partnering with AdaSwap, an ecosystem aiming to establish the first decentralised exchange on the Cardano network.

On 28 December it said it had formed a partnersip with ErgoDEX, a decentralised non-custodial exchange that "facilitates liquidity transfers between the Ergo and Cardano networks". It added that COTI and ErgoDEX will work together to determine ways to integrate Djed, the Cardano-based stablecoin with ErgoDEX.

This COTI coin review looks at the network’s recent developments and the movement of the cryptocurrency price to help you decide whether now is the right time to add it to your portfolio.  

COTI runs fintech products on blockchain 

So, what is COTI? COTI is a fintech platform that uses blockchain to run a range of products, including payment processing, financing, white label payment systems, loyalty programmes and cross-border remittance technology. Organisations can build their own payment solutions and digitise any currency to create so-called “stablecoins”, which are pegged to physical currency.

The COTI network is based on seven key elements of operating an effective payment infrastructure:

COTI network

COTI was co-founded by Samuel Falkon, vice president of business development at COTI Group and chief revenue officer at online payment service provider Paywize, a COTI subsidiary that offers merchant credit card processing. Falkon is also the founder of Israel-based management consulting firm Gil Scott. COTI co-founder David Assaraf also co-founded Israel-based fintech start-up Frequants.

What are the latest COTI developments?

On 25 October COTI announced a partnership with CardWallet, a DeFi and wallet system for Cardano, to bring a non-custodial wallet and an "easy-to-use" payment platform to the CardWallet community. The company said it will “work together to integrate the ADA Pay solution to CardWallet to provide a robust payment system for CardWallet’s users.”

COTI is to become the official issuer of Djed, a new decentralised finance (DeFi) DeFi-focused stablecoin for the Cardano network, which should provide a DeFi tool for operations and avoid transaction fees. The new stablecoin will be based on an algorithmic design using smart contracts to ensure price stability and providing an instrument for DeFi transactions, said COTI CEO, Shahaf Bar-Geffen. “The stablecoin is designed for paying transaction fees on the Cardano network in order to avoid “volatile and exorbitant gas fees” and make transaction costs more predictable,” he said. 

In September came the announcement that it was working with OccamFi, the Cardano oriented DeFi suite solution provider, to explore strategic co-development initiatives and opportunities to merge the launchpad capabilities of its OccamRazer with the ADA Pay solutions offered by COTI. 

Later that month COTI revealed it was partnering with Ardana the decentralised stable coin hub, to bring stablecoin crypto-to-fiat payments to the Cardano community, as well as consumers & merchants worldwide. With Ardana’s decentralised stablecoin payments coming to AdaPay, users will be able to purchase goods using their stablecoins wherever AdaPay is accepted. 

COTI also announced a partnership with payment processing gateway Simplex. This will enable it to offer bank accounts and Visa debit cards on the Cardano blockchain to people in the UK and European Economic Area said the company, adding that “these financial tools will help address economic inequality”.

Earlier in 2021, cFund, the venture fund for the Cardano ecosystem, invested its first $500,000 in COTI in April, strengthening the relationship between the projects. Using COTI’s payment processing technology, ADA Pay allows merchants to accept the ADA cryptocurrency as payment and convert the proceeds into 35 fiat currencies instantly to avoid exchange rate volatility. Bricks-and-mortar stores can use a point-of-sale QR code scanner to process transactions in ADA.

COTI is currently working on a project with Cardano that it says “will be very instrumental in Cardano’s ecosystem.. as Cardano grows, so will COTI”.  COTI reported the latest update on the relationship on 8 December. 

On 6 April it was announced that the Cardano DeFi Alliance (CDA) has added COTI to its consortium of projects with the primary mission of standardising Cardano best practices within the DeFi ecosystem.  Shahaf Bar-Geffen, COTI’s CEO said: “We are happy to join CDA. By powering Djed, the main native algorithmic stablecoin of the Cardano DeFi network, we feel it is only natural to take part of this important alliance to contribute to the standardisation of best practices within the Cardano DeFi ecosystem”.

COTI operates a cross-chain bridge. In June, developers tested a reprocessing procedure that allows the bridge to automatically reprocess Ethereum-based ERC-20 COTI coin to native COTI delayed transactions, as well as increase scalability and improve flows from the native coin to the Ethereum version.

The native COTI coin had been trading at around the same price as the ERC-20 version, with both versions listed on the Huobi Global exchange on 26 August. The ERC-20 version was also listed on Coinbase on the same day.

On 2 September, COTI’s developers outlined a growth plan “to bind everything that we do and new things that we are planning to do into one coherent system and evolve our offering from payments to a fully-encompassing next-generation financial system”. 

This includes:

  • A decentralised COTI treasury to collect fees and reward users

  • A stablecoin factory offering clients around the world the ability to issue their own stablecoin on top of the COTI Trustchain

  • Enterprise and merchant services under the COTI Pay Business brand to offer fully integrated backend systems with cryptocurrency and fiat currency processing along with wallets

  • Treasury services including borrowing and lending COTI and vault services

  • Ecosystem and partnerships such as ADA Pay

The developers said: “Our upcoming Treasury model combines the best of Defi and COTI’s staking 3.0 program.

“The Treasury will grow as our core services continue to grow, while introducing new services that will grow the demand for $COTI and will streamline $COTI fees to the Treasury.”

With the listings launched, the COTI network upgrade to Mainnet 2.0 was launched on 2 November adding new features and increase scalability. The developers are designing a Mainnet 3.0 upgrade that they expect to happen “roughly a year from now”.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
