The Grove (GVR) price has seen a recent surge, hot on the heels of a new exchange listing for the environmental cryptocurrency.

The green crypto was listed on 27 September by Gate.io, the fifth-largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world according to CoinMarketCap. The token has seen one of the most substantial price surges since July, when the project’s CEO was appointed managing director of Dubai’s first royal-owned metaverse business. 

GroveToken CEO John Ghemrawi was appointed as managing director of the newly launched metaverse business in Dubai, which is owned by Sheikh Dubai Al Maktoum. The news boosted sentiment for the project and supported some analysts’ Grove price predictions.

The token was trading at $0.00000000012 when it launched in May. The token largely traded sideways for the following months, but a surge at the start of Q3 2022 saw the token trade at its all time high of $0.00000000363 on 22 July, following the announcement that Dubai would develop the metaverse and blockchain sector and GroveToken was announced as builder of the metaverse first under the Dubai Metaverse Strategy.

Another surge has recent surge has come following the Gate.io listing, and is currently trading up almost 15% in a recent 24-hour trading window. At the time of writing on 27 September 2022, the token is changing hands at $0.000000001407.

What is the GroveToken project? 

GroveToken was launched on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) in March 2022 by Dubai-based green investment firm Grove. 

According to the project’s whitepaper: “GroveToken’s vision is to become the number one Global Green Payment System (GGPS).” 

The cryptocurrency project plans to reduce its environmental footprint by implementing a long-term Green Plan, which “focuses on technology that will reduce emissions and create jobs”.    

Grove said it will contribute 3% of all transactions towards token optimisation and marketing, with a portion of this invested into charitable donations that support environmental initiatives.

The investment firm said it will reinvest a portion of earnings from the project into renewable energy, solar farming and hydroponic farming in the second quarter this year. The firm claims: “Initial areas of infrastructure will be in the United Arab Emirates, Australia and Canada”. It did not reveal any further details.    

As part of the project’s Green Plan, it will provide regular updates to all GroveToken holders on the progress of its environmental development. 

Grove plans to launch a cryptocurrency wallet called GroveKeeper by the fourth quarter this year, and cryptocurrency exchange GreenOasis in 2023-2024.  

Future of GroveToken

Reducing energy consumption in crypto transactions 

Many cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin (BTC), use a proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanism, which requires large amounts of energy and computational power to solve puzzles in blockchain technology to mine and validate transactions.

This mining process has led to increased electronic wastage, as single-purpose, application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) machines were utilised to keep the blockchain running. 


GroveToken plans to adopt a different architecture for its cryptocurrency, to cut down energy consumption and transaction costs. 

According to GroveToken’s whitepaper, the project aims to combine the proof-of-authority (PoA) and delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS) consensus mechanisms for validating transactions on its network. Both PoA and DPoS are less energy-intensive compared to PoW, as they do not require as much hardware for block generation and validation. 

PoA is a reputation-based consensus algorithm that was proposed in 2017 by Ethereum (ETH) co-founder and former chief technology officer Gavin Wood. In this system, block validators are staking their own reputation instead of tokens to secure the network credibility. 

In a DPoS-based network, stakeholders can vote for third-party delegates, known as witnesses, to secure the network on their behalf. These witnesses are responsible for achieving consensus during the transaction process.

The voting power of stakeholders is proportional to the coin holdings of each user, and rewards are generally shared proportionally between the parties. Witnesses who do not carry out their block generation and validation functions may be voted off.

GroveToken supply and functions 

The BEP-20 Grove (GVR) is a utility coin to be used within the network. The GVR token supply is capped at 100 quadrillion, and 2% of the transaction volume will be burned.

According to Grove, token holders can stake their GVR coins under four different terms with no deposit fee: 

  • Term 1: day by day 1% withdrawal fee 

  • Term 2: 60 days 0.5% withdrawal fee 

  • Term 3: 90 days 0.3% withdrawal fee 

  • Term 4: 180 days 0% withdrawal fees 

To ensure the value of and demand for the GVR token, Grove will use a portion of its profit for the cryptocurrency “buyback”.

Grove price history

The team behind GroveToken

The founders of the project were John Ghemrawi, Richard Sultan, Mendy Parker and John Elmasri. 

Ghemrawi is currently CEO. Carlo Di Clemente is named as chief operating officer, with Nouha Elmasri the company’s chief marketing officer, GroveToken’s website showed

Ghemrawi’s profile states that he “has over five years of experience in the crypto world” and was awarded a “Master in Telecommunication Engineering”. Ghemrawi has been a proprietor in an Australian retail franchise Harvey Norman for more than 11 years, according to a LinkedIn profile. 

Di Clemente’s profile describes him as a business leader with over 30 years of experience in retail operations. 

GroveToken’s website does not mention technology team members and developers. 

Project risk profile 

GroveToken’s smart contract was audited by blockchain security expert Certik, which revealed some flaws in the project design.  

“We advise the client to carefully manage the privileged account’s private key to avoid any potential risks of being hacked. In general, we strongly recommend centralized privileges or roles in the protocol be improved via a decentralized mechanism or smart-contract-based accounts with enhanced security practices, eg, multisignature wallets,” said Certik. 

The team acknowledged the findings and stated they will fix all the issues found. 

GroveToken price prediction

As Grove (GVR) is a relatively new project, having launched only in May this year, few analysts have given any GVR price prediction. However, the project has already attracted a community of 16,000 holders.

However, at the time of writing on 27 September, Etherscan reports a total number of 2,914 holders. 

Despite the high-risk nature of this new cryptocurrency project, several AI-driven price forecast providers held bullish Grove coin price predictions.

As of 27 September, Price Prediction’s Grove price prediction for 2030 expected it to reach $0.00000003, however, the site only records a reading above negligible in 2026, when the token is estimated to be worth an average of 0.00000001.

According to CryptoPredictions’ Grove price prediction for 2022, the average GroveToken price was expected to rise to $0.000000002241293 by December this year. 

The data forecast provider’s Grove price prediction 2025 projected the average coin value to increase to $0.000000004166617 in December 2025, representing almost triple the current value.

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.
