Polymath has created an ecosystem for clients to create their own security tokens with its own blockchain and POLY cryptocurrency.

POLY has struggled throughout its price history. But it was up 35% over the past seven days, as of 28 September 2022.

At the time of writing, forecasters, including Wallet Investor and AMB Crypto were divided over the POLY crypto price prediction.

What is Polymath?

Polymath is a technology provider offering blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS), a service that provides companies with the tools to launch their presence in the crypto world.

Specifically, Polymath offers security token options, giving businesses a chance to easily set up their own cryptocurrencies.

Its website said: “Whether configuring tokens using the Polymath Token Studio or integrating our broker-dealer toolkit into your offering, Polymath’s technology brings efficiency and transparency to security token management.”

Users of the Polymath platform are able to create, issue and manage security tokens. The provider uses the Ethereum (ETH) standard ERC-1400, just like the ERC-20 standard. It claims this gives the tokens standardisation, which “minimize(s) technical due diligence”.

In addition to pioneering the Ethereum standard, it created its own blockchain. Polymesh was launched to continue meeting regulatory requirements, while also creating a network designed for launching security tokens.

Its CoinMarketCap page said: “Polymath streamlines antiquated processes and opens the door to new financial instruments by solving the inherent challenges with public infrastructure around identity, compliance, confidentiality, governance, and settlement.”

The POLY cryptocurrency

The POLY cryptocurrency fuels this blockchain and the Polymath platform. It was initially designed for users to pay for fees when creating, distributing or manging their security token. However, it is now also used to reward nodes for securing the Polymesh blockchain.

As of 28 September 2022, it had a circulating supply of 924 million tokens with a market capitalisation of $251m, ranking it 117th out of all cryptocurrencies by that metric.

POLY’s past performance

It has been a bumpy price history for POLY. The token launched at $0.7905 on 2 February 2018 and immediately reached its all-time high of $1.66 on 19 February.

Polymath proved to be overvalued, however, and the token crashed throughout the rest of the year, along with the general cryptocurrency bear market. It closed 2018 at $0.13, down 84% on its launch.

However, 2021 was a breakout year for the cryptocurrency. It hit a high of $0.80 on 3 April 2021, which came as the platform was gearing up to launch its blockchain. Polymesh went live on 13 October, with POLY surging throughout the month and peaking at $0.95 on 28 November 2021.

It eventually fell victim, however, to the recent bear market. POLY dropped to a 52-week low on 12 May 2022, when it hit $0.14 after the collapse of the Terra ecosystem.

The cryptocurrency has made some gains recently. It surged on 8 September 2022 to $0.44, as it sponsored and attended the Blockchain Futurist Conference in Toronto.

While its price retreated from this high, it has rallied again recently. As of 28 September 2022 it was trading at $0.27, up 35% in the past week and 46% over the past 30 days.

Polymath price prediction

At the time of writing (28 September 2022), there were mixed opinions when it came to a POLY price prediction.

TechNewsLeader expected the current bullish trend to continue, predicting the token might reach $0.48 in a year. Its Polymath price prediction for 2025 gave a maximum price of $0.98, which it suggested could rocket to $5.95 in 2030.

Similarly, AMB Crypto thought POLY would average out at $0.44 this year. Its Polymath crypto price prediction said the token might pass $1 in 2024 and achieve $5.90 in 2030.

PricePrediction said the coin would only average $0.29 in 2022. However, a strong climb was forecasted, and its Polymath price prediction for 2030 said the token could average out at $5.91.

On the other hand, WalletInvestor said the token was a “bad” long-term investment , and its Polymath price prediction for 2022 suggested it would fall to $0.149. The cryptocurrency was then forecasted to drop below the $0.01 barrier by the end of 2025

When considering a Polymath coin price prediction, it is 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. Never trade with money that you cannot afford to lose, and keep in mind that past performance is no guarantee of future returns.

FAQs

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.
