What is Syscoin?

Syscoin is a proof-of-work blockchain with two layers that provides infrastructure for the development of Web 3.0 apps.

Syscoin is merged-mined with Bitcoin and functions alongside Ethereum through the NEVM smart contract architecture.

Merged mining enables miners to mine several blockchains concurrently, saving energy and cost. The term NEVM refers to the Network-Enhanced Virtual Machine, which drives Syscoin's smart contract layer and allows the development of decentralised applications on top of the Syscoin blockchain.

“Syscoin NEVM is designed to provide smart contracts and interoperability that can scale to smart cities and beyond, while remaining low-cost and performant, and providing robust decentralised settlements that are secured by Bitcoin’s own proof-of-work security model via merged-mining”, the company stated. “With NEVM, Syscoin will essentially combine the strongest elements of Bitcoin (security model, merge-mined hashrate potential, UTXO efficiency and compatibility with future UTXO [unspent transaction output] advancements) with Ethereum (broad usefulness of generalised computation), into a single decentralised coordinated financial computation platform”.

Syscoin's 20% hashing power is used to mine bitcoin, adding to the overall security. In addition, Syscoin aims to recruit more bitcoin miners to provide one of the most secure settlement layers possible.

  • Collaboration with Microsoft Azure

These products enabled developers to build blockchain-enabled applications by leveraging Syscoin's suite of decentralised business services, which includes digital certificates, secure messaging, marketplace offers, payments, and escrow transactions.

  • Partnership with Corion

In August 2020, the Syscoin Foundation partnered with the non-profit Corion Foundation.

Syscoin and Corion aimed to expand the use cases for cryptocurrencies and stablecoins by developing asset-backed digital tokens on the blockchain to lower costs, streamline compliance, improve user experience and increase adoption.

The official announcement stated that this cooperation aspired to empower the cryptocurrency community by providing professional portfolio management services for their digital asset investments.

“Syscoin and Corion see that with the right solutions asset-backed digital tokens on the blockchain will create more efficient and beneficial economies. Lower costs, easier compliance, greater convenience for users, and more participation. Our combined focus will include specific stablecoins, DeFi, and helping the unbanked and over-banked. Together we will drive wider adoption of blockchain technology”, said Syscoin Foundation president and BCF Chief Technology Officer, Jagdeep Sidhu.
  • Collaboration with Blockchain Intelligence Group

In November 2021, Blockchain Intelligence Group, a cryptocurrency compliance and intelligence organisation, collaborated with Syscoin to completely incorporate Syscoin into its ecosystem.

“By joining the BitRank Verified ecosystem, we are able to offer compliance and a regulatory framework to Syscoin customers for the first time on a public ledger that brings the same benefits as traditional financial services,” said Sidhu.
  • Phase 1 launch of NEVM

In December 2021, Syscoin announced the launch of Layer 1 Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) smart contracts. It enables Syscoin users to transfer their Ethereum-based projects to the Syscoin Platform and save on transaction costs.

Additionally, the Syscoin NEVM phase one will introduce the world's first blockchain capable of powering the metaverse, smart cities, and hosting public and private organisations' requirements.

“We have presented what is currently underway for Syscoin 4, which will come in the form of a four-layer tech stack to work with the Ethereum ecosystem via our NEVM. With the ever increasing cost of gas prices, we present the data showing a 1000x+ improvement over Ethereum 2.0 in efficiency in terms of low gas cost per transaction. Syscoin will utilize the best features of the top two cryptocurrencies, namely Bitcoin and Ethereum. Hence, Syscoin will provide the security offered by Bitcoin while maintaining the programmability of Ethereum,” said Jagdeep Sidhu.
  • Strategic alliance with Oraichain

Syscoin announced a partnership with Oraichain in December 2021. Oraichain is the world's first AI oracle and blockchain ecosystem. It offers AI price feed, NFT copyright protection and royalty protocol services.

The strategic relationship between Oraichain and Syscoin centred on integrating Syscoin's NEVM into Oraichain's network, bringing these two ecosystems together to provide new possibilities for Web 3.0, Metaverse, DeFi, and NFTs.

Syscoin (SYS) price prediction: Targets for 2022, 2025 and 2030

Short-term Syscoin technical analysis from CoinCodex was bullish, with 28 indicators giving bullish signals and three bearish signals, as of 5 January 2022.

All the daily and weekly simple moving averages and exponential moving averages were giving 'buy' signals. While the hull moving average (HMA), relative strength index (RSI) and stochastic RSI were giving 'sell' signals. Meanwhile, the ultimate oscillator and moving average convergence divergence (MACD) kept neutral.

According to a short-term SYS crypto price prediction by CoinCodex, it could fall by 20.48% to $0.950815 by 10 January.

Meanwhile, several algorithm-based forecasting services shared bullish long-term syscoin crypto forecasts, as of 5 January:

  • Wallet Investor estimated the average price of SYS to reach $1.52 by the end of 2022 and $2.38 by the end of 2025. The five-year SYS/USD forecast suggested it could hit $2.67 in January 2027.

  • According to DigitalCoin, SYS could hit an average of $1.66 in 2022, $2.59 in 2025 and $5.1 in 2029.

  • Similarly, Price Prediction believed the average price of SYS could hit $3.40 in 2022, $10.52 in 2025 and reach as high as $68.80 in 2030.

When looking for syscoin predictions, bear in mind that analysts and algorithm-based forecasters can be wrong. Their syscoin projections are based on making fundamental and technical studies of a cryptocurrency's past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

It's important to do your own research and always remember your decision to trade depends on your attitude to risk, your expertise in the market, the spread of your investment portfolio, and how comfortable you feel about losing money. You should never invest money that you cannot afford to lose.


Is Syscoin a good investment?

Syscoin is built on Bitcoin and Ethereum and serves multiple use cases in various crypto sectors such as NFT, Web 3.0 and metaverse. It has secured many high-profile partnerships, such as Microsoft Azure. Still, whether the SYS token is a good fit for your investment portfolio depends on your circumstances and risk tolerance. You should estimate the level of risk you are ready to take before investing. And never invest money that you cannot afford to lose.

Will Syscoin go up?

According to the syscoin crypto forecast of Price Prediction (as of 5 January 2022), SYS could hit $68.80 by 2030.

Will Syscoin reach $100?

Algorithmic forecasting tools, including Wallet Investor, DigitalCoin and Price Prediction (as of 5 January) suggest the coin had potential for future gains. Their price targets varied greatly. Price Prediction estimated that Syscoin could exceed $100 by 2031.

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.
