Celestia Price Prediction as TIA Surges 13% – A New Market Favorite?

The native token of the Celestia protocol TIA has continued its bullish run this week, with the token printing fresh record highs on Tuesday to the north of $13.1.

TIA has jumped more than 40% since Monday’s lows in the mid-$8.0s on optimism about an announcement of an integration with the Polygon network that is expected to go live in 2024.

Celestia’s data availability solution is set to integrate with Polygon’s Chain Development Kit (CDK).

That means that when developers build future layer-2 scaling solutions using Polygon’s technology, they will be able to use a cheaper data availability solution (Celestia) than that offered by Ethereum, which Polygon currently uses.

Celestia’s protocol and TIA token were launched back in October.

Reducing costs for layer-2 networks like Polygon was a major value proposition of the protocol, and the TIA token is up around 400% from its late-October lows under $2.0.

Its more than 13% pump up in the last 24 hours comes despite a downturn in the broader crypto market that has seen Bitcoin dump back towards $41,000 since last week’s highs above $44,000, suggesting TIA has become something of a market favorite.

Assuming that the broader crypto market’s latest downturn is short-lived and that optimism surrounding Celestia’s integration into leading layer-2 scaling solutions remains high, TIA can continue pumping, despite already reaching a lofty market cap of over $1.8 billion, and a fully diluted market cap of over $12.2 billion.

Price Prediction – Where Next for Celestia (TIA)?

A lack of sustained growth in Celestia’s on-chain activity is somewhat concerning and could act as a reason for sellers to take profit if TIA keeps pumping.

The token has only averaged around 12,000 transactions per day since its launch in late October.

But bulls will argue that integration with Polygon and other major layer-2 networks next year should drive up on-chain activity, driving up demand for TIA.

Any retest of support in the $10 area in the form of TIA’s uptrend since going live may entice longer-term bulls to jump back into the market, which could ensure that price dips remain short-lived.

While the market is likely to remain choppy, medium-term price predictions will probably remain bullish.

Crypto Alternatives to Consider

While TIA offers strong upside potential for the weeks ahead, those looking to diversify into an alternative high-risk, high-reward investment strategy should consider getting involved in crypto presales.

This is where investors buy the tokens of upstart crypto projects to help fund their development.

These tokens are nearly always sold cheaply, and there is a long history of presales delivering huge exponential gains to early investors.

Many of these projects have fantastic teams behind them and a great vision to deliver a revolutionary crypto application/platform.

If an investor can identify such projects, the risk/reward of their presale investment is very good.

The team at Cryptonews spends a lot of time combing through presale projects to help investors out.

Here is a list of 15 of what the project deems as the best crypto presales of 2023.
