The Tezos (XTZ) cryptocurrency token has plunged nearly 77% year to date (YTD), as of 6 December 2022. It’s down more than 88% from the token’s all-time high in October 2021. 

The decline in the token’s price has come as a result of volatility and uncertainty induced in the broader markets and cryptocurrency markets due to a string of macroeconomic factors. 

The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, record-high inflation led by higher prices for fuel and food, and the US Federal Reserve’s (Fed) faster-than-expected monetary policy tightening to tame inflation have been instrumental in inducing global volatility.

What lies ahead for the XTZ token’s price this year and in the long term? In this article we take a closer look at the blockchain and analysts’ Tezos price predictions.

What is the Tezos (XTZ) token?

Tezos is an open source platform that addresses crucial barriers that face blockchain adoption for assets and applications, backed by validators, researchers and builders around the world. The Tezos platform is based on smart contracts similar to those used on the Ethereum blockchain.

XTZ, or Tez, is the native token of the Tezos blockchain. It is used to interact with decentralised applications (dApps), remunerate fees, secure the network via staking and offer a basic accounting unit on the Tezos platform. 

The Tezos initial coin offering (ICO) took place on 1 July 2017. The two-week sale raised nearly $232m in bitcoin (BTC) and ethereum (ETH), vastly surpassing the project’s target of $20m.

Arthur Breitman, a research engineer who had worked for Google X and autonomous driving technology development firm Waymo, first proposed the Tezos blockchain in a position paper released in August 2014. 

Breitman released a whitepaper in September 2014 with a more detailed description and specification about the Tezos project. Both papers were released under the pseudonym L M Goodman. 

The papers argued that the design of Bitcoin was defective and did not offer a very inclusive governance process, while Tezos came with an on-chain governance model. This would allow holders of the token to vote on proposed protocol upgrades to prevent forking the network.

Technical overview: Will the token inch higher?

According to CoinCodex, XTZ price prediction sentiment at the time of writing (6 December 2022) was bearish, with 13 technical analysis indicators signaling bullish signals, and 17 signalling bearish signals. The fear and greed index showed ‘extreme fear’ at a reading of 25. The Tezos price prediction for 5 January had the price falling to $0.849372.

The weekly 50-day simple moving average (SMA) was indicating ‘sell’. The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) (12, 26) was ‘neutral’ at 0.02, while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicated a ‘neutral’ at 41.84. An RSI reading of 30 or below indicates that a security is underbought or undervalued. Values above 70 indicate that an asset could be overbought.

The Commodity Channel Index (CCI) (20) was indicating ‘neutral’ at 66.67. The CCI is a momentum-based oscillator used to establish when an asset’s price is reaching overbought or oversold territory.

The tezos token price’s classical pivot point was $1.012024, with support levels at $0.994595 and $0.983681. The strongest support level was at $0.966253. The token’s resistance levels were at $1.022938, $1.040366, and $1.051280, according to Coincodex.

Over the past seven days, Tezos price was most positively correlated with the price of Gnosis, Decentraland, Ravencoin, VeChain and DeFiChain, and most negatively correlated with the price of Helium, SONM, Binance Coin, Chain and 1inch Network Token, as of 6 December 2022.

Tokens positively correlated with the XTZ token indicate that the movement of any one may have a statistically considerable weight to pull the other tokens in the same direction. For tokens negatively correlated with XTZ, a move in any one direction for XTZ would indicate their move in the opposite direction.

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.
