It aims to make crypto greener, but what is dovu (DOV)? Let’s see what we can find out, and also cast our eyes over some of the dovu price predictions that were being made as of 2 November 2022.

Dovu explained

While cryptocurrency and blockchain technology have their advocates who will talk about how useful and important they are, there are certain problems that need to be addressed. While the lack of a regulatory framework or technical jargon that baffles beginners is of concernt to many, the main issue for many people with crypto is its significant impact on the environment.

For instance, data from the University of Cambridge’s Bitcoin Electricity Consumption Index finds that bitcoin (BTC) uses 103.8 terawatts of electricity a year, more than the entire country of Pakistan.

While recent developments, such as the transfer of the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain from the energy intensive proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanism to a greener proof-of-stake (PoS) one, have possibly helped, there is still a lot more that the crypto sector as a whole can do to help reassure investors who do not want to put their money into something that could damage the planet.

DOVU is one blockchain-based platform that aims to make the blockchain a greener affair. It was founded in 2016 by crypto entrepreneur Irfon Watkins and Bulgarian lawyer Krasina Mileva in the Welsh town of Llanwrtyd Wells.

In addition, DOVU is based on the work carried out by the Ocean Protocol (OCEAN). This system allows data owners to capitalise on their data without having to compromise on its security or give up control. The protocol uses data tokens to bar access to data. If you want to access the information, then you have to redeem your tokens. The idea is to let people access data while the people who hold the data keep hold of it.

Anyway, DOVU takes this a step further and incorporates carbon trading. This is the idea that carbon is given a value, which allows it to be traded between companies, individuals and even countries.

This means that someone who buys a carbon token has, in effect, the right to burn it and release it into the earth’s atmosphere. The seller gives up that right. If you can store carbon effectively and not release it into the atmosphere, you are able to charge more for it. When countries get involved in the carbon trade, it is usually industrialised nations that are the buyers, and countries which have fewer carbon emissions that are the sellers.

According to the platform’s website: “We implement carbon sequestration practices to tokenise carbon credits. 

“This makes it easy for organisations to offset their carbon footprints with carbon that’s sourced directly from farmers. Firstly, they can identify how much carbon they need to offset their footprints (using our Carbon Calculator). And then purchase offsets on the DOVU Carbon Market.”

Every blockchain-based platform needs to have its own native token, and DOVU has the dovu crypto, known by the slightly confusing ticker handle of DOV.

This crypto is used to help power the network and used to purchase carbon credits. But it can also be bought, sold and traded on the open market. DOV can also be staked in return for rewards, a development which was completed in the summer of 2022. 

It is worth pointing out at this stage that the DOV crypto token is based on the Hedera (HBAR) blockchain, which means that it is a token, rather than a coin. You while might see references to such things as a dovu coin price prediction, these are wrong.

DOV first came onto the open market in November 2017. At that time, it was worth somewhere between $0.10 and $0.15.

It was around this time that the cryptocurrency market went into a bubble and, like many other cryptos at the time, dovu shot up, with the pinnacle coming on 13 January 2018 when it reached an all-time high of $1.16.

After this, though, the bubble started to burst and by the end of the year it was trading at around $0.05 before falling below a cent in 2019.

At this point, the market was going through a crypto winter and the token didn’t do too much, other than drop to an all-time low of $0.0001943 on 11 November 2020, until early 2021.

It was at this point that the crypto market went through something of a boom period, with dovu getting in on the action and breaking past $0.10 in April. After this, though, it fell back down and closed the year at $0.009042.

Dovu has, like much of the rest of the cryptocurrency market, had a pretty bad time in 2022 although perhaps not as bad a time as some other cryptos. It fell to a low of $0.01586 in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on 24 February.

Although there was a recovery to above $0.04 at the end of March, that high could not last and a series of crashes and overall poor market conditions saw it fall to trade at around $0.00256 on 2 November 2022.

At that time, there were 956,157,114.34 DOV in circulation out of a total supply of 963,761,390. This gave it a market cap of about $2.45m, making it the 1,144th largest crypto by that metric. 

Dovu price prediction round-up

Let’s now take a look at some of the dovu price predictions that were being made as of 2 November 2022. Keep in mind that price forecasts, especially when it comes to something as potentially volatile as cryptocurrency, are very often wrong. Also, many long-term crypto price predictions are made using an algorithm, which can change at any time.

First, CoinCodex made a short-term dovu price prediction for 2022 that said the token could have reached $0.002481 by 7 November before falling to $0.001399 on 3 December. The site appeared to think that there was more bad news than good coming for the crypto, as its technical analysis was overwhelmingly bearish, with all 29 of its indicators making downbeat signals and none making bullish ones. 

Next, CoinArbitrageBot was more upbeat when it came to making a DOV price prediction. The site said that the token could have traded at $0.022336 in 2023 before a potential $0.039754 in 2024. It then offered a dovu price prediction for 2025 that it could have achieved $0.064332 followed by a dovu token price that it could have gone on to $0.10407 the following year. How much credence you give to this particular forecast will depend on whether, having made sure to have done your own research on the matter, you think that the crypto can jump by more than 750% over the course of the next year or so and grow by nearly 4,000% in the next three years. 

Meanwhile, DigitalCoinPrice had a dovu crypto price prediction that said DOV could have been worth $0.00264 this year, $0.0043 next year and $0.00558 the year after that. By 2025, the site suggested that dov could have traded at around $0.00683 that year, $0.00725 in 2026, $0.00816 in 2027 and $0.00953 in 2028 before it could have broken past the cent barrier and closed the decade at about $0.0115. The site then made a dovu price prediction for 2030 that suggested it could have reached $0.0142, before it could have climbed again to $0.0176 in 2031.

Finally, WalletInvestor seemed pretty positive when it came to making a dovu token price prediction. The site thought the token could have risen to reach $0.00756 in early November 2023 and could have gone on to trade at $0.0343 in five years’ time. 

When considering a DOV token price prediction, it’s important to keep in mind that cryptocurrency markets remain extremely volatile, making it difficult to accurately predict what a coin or token’s price will be in a few hours, and even harder to give long-term estimates. As such, analysts and algorithm-based forecasters can and do get their predictions wrong.

If you are considering investing in cryptocurrency tokens, we recommend that you always do your own research. Look at the latest market trends, news, technical and fundamental analysis, and expert opinion before making any investment decision. Keep in mind that past performance is no guarantee of future returns. And never trade with money that you cannot afford to lose.

FAQs

Is dovu a good investment?

It is difficult to tell. The token has suffered significant losses so far this year, so it will have to be seen if it can turn things around. A lot may well depend on how the market behaves as a whole. 

Remember, you should always carry out your own thorough research before making an investment. Even high market cap cryptocurrencies have proved vulnerable to bear markets. So investors should be prepared to make losses and never purchase more than they can afford to lose.

Will dovu go up or down?

It is hard to say. While sites like WalletInvestor was optimistic about the dovu token’s future price, CoinCodex struck a far more cautionary and bearish note. It is important to keep in mind that price predictions more often than not end up being wrong, and that prices can, and do, go down as well as up. 

In volatile cryptocurrency markets, it is important to do your own research on a coin or token to determine if it is a good fit for your investment portfolio. Whether DOV is a suitable investment for you depends on your risk tolerance and how much you intend to invest, among other factors. Keep in mind that past performance is no guarantee of future returns. And never invest money that you cannot afford to lose.

Should I invest in dovu?

Before you decide whether or not to invest in DOV, you will need to do your own research, not only on dovu, but other ostensibly environmentally-friendly cryptocurrencies. 

Ultimately, though, this is a question that you will have to answer for yourself. Before you do so, however, you will need to conduct your own research and never invest more money than you can afford to lose because prices can go down as well as up.

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.
