Stablecoins – crypto assets backed by traditional financial assets such as fiat currency or gold – have gained popularity as a reliable means of trading other digital assets. According to a recently published European Central Bank report, as of September 2021, almost 75% of trading volume on crypto platforms involved a stablecoin. 

ICHI (ICHI), a protocol that enables cryptocurrency platforms to develop their own stablecoins, also witnessed growth in 2021 and reached an all-time high of $28.67 on 16 November, according to CoinMarketCap

At the time of writing, 8 March 2022, the ICHI coin was trading at $19.52, down more than 32% from its peak. It has also fallen fractionally from the 90-day high of $19.77 it made on 3 March.

Can the ICHI coin move upward and test new highs in 2022? This article covers ICHI token price analysis, along with recent news, developments and fundamental analysis to help you form a reasonable ICHI crypto price prediction.

ICHI price prediction

What is an ICHI coin?

ICHI is a self-sustaining, decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) administered by its members. Using ICHI, other cryptocurrency ecosystems can set up and manage their own non-custodial oneToken – a stablecoin valued at $1.

OneTokens are stablecoins developed by ICHI specifically for cryptocurrency networks. According to the ICHI documentation, oneTokens are “produced stable tokens which are created for cryptocurrency communities backed by both a collateral reserve and community treasury.” OneTokens retain their value at one dollar and are backed by the native tokens of each oneToken project.

ICHI allows any cryptocurrency project to create a Decentralised Monetary Authority (DMA) to manage their oneToken. DMAs offer any community a framework of smart contracts that enables it to operate its own stable currency in the same manner that a country's central bank maintains its fiat currency.

Each oneToken community has the option of establishing yield-generating trades using its collateral reserves or community treasuries. Given the return on these holdings, they have the option of compensating ICHI holders for engaging in governance proposals.

ICHI is the ICHI Protocol's native governance token; it is necessary for voting and serves as an incentive within the ICHI community. ICHI's supply is hard-capped at five million tokens. It is distributed on Ethereum (ETH) network on a per-block basis to liquidity providers.

The ICHI token’s governance incentives are only available to users who have submitted ideas, commented on them, reviewed them, and/or voted for or against them.

ICHI coin news and price drivers

The project has undergone several important updates lately, which may affect the ICHI coin value:

Partnership with Risk Harbor

ICHI teamed up with Risk Harbor, a risk management marketplace, in March 2022, to provide peg protection to ICHI’s first Angel Vault Branded Dollars, which are used by Uniswap(UNI), ShapeShift (FOX), Fuse (FUSE), and Wing Finance (WING) communities.

As a result of this collaboration, Risk Harbor’s fully automated risk management marketplace will safeguard DeFi customers if token prices ever deviate from their peg. This protects ICHI’s brand dollars and, according to the press release that accompanied the move, gives them “the best stable asset coverage in the industry.”

Partnership with Rari Capital

ICHI also collaborated with Rari Capital in January 2022 to provide liquidity and make lending and borrowing more flexible in the market.

As a result of this collaboration, ICHI established a Fuse Pool on Rari Capital, allowing all members of the ICHI community to borrow against the community's assets.

According to the official statement, establishing a decentralised lending and borrowing pool would enable DeFi users to take advantage of new opportunities.

Bryan Gross, ICHI steward and DMA Labs CEO said: “Rari Fuse pools have allowed ICHI to enter the lending market, one of the three pillars of DeFi. With this implementation, ICHI and partner project HODLERs will be able to use their ICHI community holdings in a more capital-efficient way.”

Launch of oneFOX token for ShapeShift

The latest activity follows incentives undertaken in the latter half of 2021. These included ICHI launching the oneFOX token in November 2021 for ShapeShift, a Swiss-based cryptocurrency exchange. Each oneFOX token will be tied to the US dollar and backed by ShapeShift's native FOX token and another well-known stablecoin, USD coin (USDC).

Launch of onePERL token for Planet Earth

In August 2021, ICHI introduced onePERL token for Planet Earth, an environment-focused cryptocurrency project.

According to the press release, it was DeFi's first carbon-neutral stablecoin launch. ICHI established a decentralised monetary authority (DMA) for the PERL.eco ecosystem, enabling the PERL.eco community to oversee minting, redemption, and treasury strategies to facilitate wealth accumulation inside its ecosystem.

The PERL.eco team pledged to offset the carbon impact of the whole minting and launch processes of onePERL, ensuring a zero-carbon footprint.

ICHI/USD price analysis 

Based on the earliest available price data from CoinMarketCap from 2021, the ICHI coin spiked from $3.76 on 16 January to $19.31 on 22 March, an increase of 414% in a little more than two months. The broader crypto market was bullish during this period. Bitcoin (BTC) price spiked nearly 51% from $36,178 on 16 January to $54,529 on 22 March.

Further, ICHI token price declined to $9.99 on 23 April and bottomed to its all-time low of $2.31 on 22 June. After hitting the low, the price gained some traction, and the ICHI token reached $5.04 on 15 November.

On 16 November, the market sentiments turned bullish. Ether (ETH), the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency, reached an all-time high of $4,891.70. Riding on the overall bullish cryptocurrency sentiment, ICHI also reached an all-time high of $28.67 on 16 November, representing an intraday gain of nearly 469%. The rally was short-lived, however, and ICHI closed the day at $4.67, down almost 84% from the day’s high. The price action trended sideways through the rest of the year, closing 2021 at $5.21.

ICHI token found a bullish start to 2022, and its price spiked from an opening price of $5.21 on 1 January to its 90-day high of $19.77 on 3 March. At the time of writing, 8 March 2022, the ICHI token was trading at $19.52 and had a market capitalisation of $82m.

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.
