The news followed the announcement  that Ark had redesigned part of its website, making it easier to use. 

Ark did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

But what is Ark (ARK)? How does Ark work? Let’s see what we can find out, and also take a look at some of the Ark Price Predictions that were being made as of September 20 2023.

Ark Coin Price Prediction

Let’s examine some of the Ark price predictions being made on September 20 2023. It is crucial to bear in mind that price forecasts, particularly for a potentially volatile asset like cryptocurrency, often turn out to be inaccurate. Additionally, please remember that many long-term crypto price predictions are generated using algorithms, which means they can change at any time.

2023 2025 2030
Prediction #1 $1.44 $2.45 $7.05
Prediction #2 $1.04 $2.43 $5.90
Prediction #3 $0.34 $0.68 $4.52

First, CoinCodex  had a short-term ARK price prediction that said the crypto would show some improvement over the coming weeks. It suggested ARK would reach $0.6937 by September 25 and hit $0.7033 by October 20. The site’s technical analysis was highly bullish, with 28 indicators sending positive signals and just three making bearish ones.

DigitalCoinPrice  said that ARK would trade at $1.44 this year, while Bitnation  saw it reaching $1.04. PricePrediction.net  was a bit gloomier, with its ARK price forecast seeing it fall to $0.34 in 2023.

Ark Price Prediction for 2025

Moving on, DigitalCoinPrice’s ARK coin price prediction saw it reach $2.45 in 2025, with Bitnation following close behind at $2.43. PricePrediction.net thought ARK would be worth $0.68 in two years time. 

Ark Price Prediction for 2030

Looking at a more long-term Ark price prediction, DigitalCoinPrice said the coin would trade at $7.05 in 2030. Bitnation thought it would reach $5.90, while PricePrediction.com said it would be worth $4.52 at the start of the next decade. 


ARK Price History

Now, let’s examine some of the highlights and lowlights of the Ark price history . While we should never take past performance as an indicator of future results, knowing what the coin has achieved can provide us with some very useful context if we want to make or interpret an Ark price prediction.

ARK first hit the open market in early 2017, when it traded at about $0.03. At the end of the year, the crypto market entered a bubble and ARK rose, reaching an all-time high of $10.91 on January 9 2018. Once the bubble burst, ARK fell, dropping below $1 in August and spending the next two-and-a-half years or so below the dollar.

Things changed in early 2021. The crypto market entered a boom period and ARK responded well. It broke past the dollar in February and reached a period high of $3.98 on March 30. It then entered a downturn, closing the year at $1.16.

2022 was a bad year for both crypto and for ARK. The coin last traded above the dollar in April that year. The following month saw the collapse of the Terra (LUNA) blockchain, which sent the market into a downward spiral. Any hopes of recovery were snuffed out when the FTX (FTT) exchange declared bankruptcy in November. The coin closed the year at $0.2391, an annual loss of nearly 80%. 

Ark in 2023

So far, 2023 has been a little bit better for ARK. A buoyant market saw it rise above $0.40 in February before the collapse of the Silvergate bank in March saw ARK fall below $0.30. There was some recovery, with it climbing to around $0.37 in April, but then there was another downturn. When the United States Securities and Exchange Commission sued the Binance and Coinbase exchanges, the market fell, and ARK sank to a low of $0.2088 on June 15. 

A recovery followed, with ARK spending time above $0.30 the following month. There was another downturn, prompted by the news that Elon Musk’s SpaceX had sold millions of dollars worth Bitcoin (BTC). ARK dropped to $0.2284 on September 2, before recovering nearly 50% to $0.34 on September 7. Another drop, this time of almost 25%, saw it down to $0.2554 on September 11. Since then, though, the news of the futures contracts has seen it shoot up. On September 20 2023, ARK was worth about $0.69, its highest price since the collapse of LUNA. 

At that time, there were 175.7 million ARK in circulation, representing the total supply. This gave the coin a market cap of $121.3 million, making it the 237th largest crypto by that metric. 

Ark Price Analysis

ARK has climbed by around 170% since September 11, making it one of the best performing cryptos of recent days. Not only that, but it is now up more than 200% since September 2. Its price is 230% more than its June low, and it is up nearly 190% since the start of the year. 

Is Ark a Good Investment?

It is hard to say. While its recent performance is encouraging, we don’t know if ARK can build on recent interest or whether this is just a temporary spike.

ARK is a long-standing cryptocurrency which has not really been anything like a major player since the bubble of 2017 and 2018. That said, it has continued to trade, and the Ark blockchain has an active developer base.

As ever with crypto, you will need to make sure you do your own research before deciding whether or not to invest in ARK.

Will Ark go up or down?

No one can really tell right now. While the Ark crypto price predictions are largely positive, price predictions have a well-earned reputation for being wrong. Keep in mind, too, that prices can, and do, go down as well as up. 

Should I invest in Ark?

Before you decide whether or not to invest in Ark, you will have to do your own research, not only on ARK, but on other, related, coins and tokens such as Ethereum (ETH) or Solana (SOL). Either way, you will also need to make sure that you never invest more money than you can afford to lose.

Ark (ARK) Explained

The Ark  blockchain helps people create their own blockchains and, by extension, cryptocurrencies. People can use the Javascript and Typescript programming languages to help set up chains. 

Crypto entrepreneurs Travis Walker and Matthew Cox founded Ark in 2017. The ARK coin supports the Ark blockchain.  

How Ark Works

Ark uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. This means people are selected to add blocks to the blockchain based on how much ARK they hold. 

Ark is based around the Ark Core. This, in turn, features the Generic Transaction Interface (GTI), which allows developers to create the frameworks for their blockchains. 

The ARK coin pays for transactions on the blockchain. People can also buy, sell, and trade ARK on exchanges. 


How many ARK are there?

On September 20 2023, there were 175.7 million ARK in circulation, representing the total supply. 

Will ARK reach $10?

It might do, but not for a while. Both DigitalCoinPrice and PricePrediction.net thought it could, potentially, reach double figures by 2032.

Keep in mind that ARK has not traded at $10 since early 2018.

What is ARK used for?

The ARK coin pays for transactions on the Ark blockchain. The coin’s holders can vote on changes to the network. People can also buy, sell, and trade ARK on exchanges.
