Following in the footsteps of Binance, the cryptocurrency exchange Gate.io has created its own blockchain ecosystem complete with the gatetoken (GT).

The GT cryptocurrency is currently recovering from the crypto crash in May and was trading up 6% in the past month.

The GateChain ecosystem

Developed by the Gate.io cryptocurrency exchange, GateChain is a blockchain designed with security at its core. According to its documentation:

“GateChain sets out to solve the very interesting and complex problems that emerged alongside blockchains, without compromising any decentralised aspects or advantages.”

GateChain’s staple product is the onchain safety account that provides security, even if the keys to the wallet are compromised. The documentation added:

“With a uniquely designed Vault Account and its functions for handling abnormal transactions, GateChain presents a never before seen clearing mechanism, tackling the challenging problems of asset theft and private key loss.”

Other components of the GateChain ecosystem include its own decentralised exchange (DEX), multi-signature wallets, and payment provider.

GateChain is also compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). This allows developers to deploy any ETH smart contracts on its blockchain.

What is GateToken?

Gatetoken is the native cryptocurrency on the GateChain network, but is also available on the Ethereum (ETH) and Solana (SOL) blockchains.

GT is utilised to pay transaction fees on GateChain and reward validators for supporting its proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. Gate.io’s website said:

“As an important part of the Gate.io ecosystem, GT can be used in VIP tier escalation, trading fee debits, exclusive activities participation and more. Gate.io will also increasingly empower GT with more applications and use cases to improve its intrinsic value.”

GT’s price history

After it went live at $0.90 on 26 August 2019, gatetoken struggled to take off and closed the month below its launch price at $0.73.

The cryptocurrency continued falling over the coming months and into the following year. Gatetoken dropped to its all-time low of $0.26 on 13 March 2020. It then fluctuated around the $0.50 level for the rest of the year.

But, GT saw its biggest breakout with the bull market in 2021. It rocketed to an all-time high of $13.09 on 12 May. This followed gatetoken’s listing on the FTX exchange on 7 May.

Almost immediately, the token corrected below the $5 mark. However, it saw gains in September as GateChain’s mainnet was upgraded.

It continued this rally into the following months during another wider crypto rally and as GateChain enabled support for Gate.io’s non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace. GT peaked at $8.24 on 11 November.

Despite falling slightly from this high, gatetoken maintained its price above the $5 barrier for the first quarter of 2022. But, it proved vulnerable to the crypto crash of May 2022 and stooped to $3.35 on 18 June.

It has recovered since then and, at the time of writing on 28 October, GT was trading at $4.49 and was up 6% in the past 30 days.

Gatetoken price prediction round-up

At the time of writing, CoinCodex’s GT price prediction said there was bullish sentiment with 21 out of 26 technical indicators signalling “buy”.

The site’s gatetoken price prediction for 2022 suggested it could have climbed by more than 4% to $4.71 as of 27 November.

Similarly, PricePrediction was also bullish over its potential. The site expected that GT could have averaged $4.88 in 2022 and $14 in 2025. Its gatetoken price prediction for 2030 said this value could have reached $83.85.

TechNewsLeader’s gatetoken crypto price prediction said it could have reached $7.23 in a year and could have gone on to $23.52 in five years’ time. It gave a price range that suggested the token could have reached a minimum of $98.20 in 2030 or a maimum of $121.26.

DigitalCoinPrice was more reserved with its forecast. The site anticipated that GT could have averaged $4.89 this year. Its gatetoken price prediction for 2025 said it could have climbed to $11.80 and then could have achieved $24.84 in 2030.

When considering a gatetoken coin 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.

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.
