Key Takeaways

  • GateToken (GT) powers the security-based GateChain blockchain. 
  • It has been on a downturn lately after a market-beating 2022.
  • GateToken price predictions for 2025 go up to $12.98.
  • What’s next for GateToken?

The GateChain blockchain’s GateToken (GT) crypto outperformed the crypto market in 2022. Although its price fell across the year, it still managed to escape the worst of the bear market. 

While 1.6 million GTs were destroyed , or burned,  between April and June 2023, the price has not kept up in the way that the platform’s bosses will have hoped.

GateToken did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

But what is GateToken (GT)? How does GateToken work? Let’s see what we can find out, and also take a look at some of the GateToken Price Predictions that were being made as of September 25 2023.

GateToken Price Prediction

Let’s examine some of the GateToken price predictions being made on September 25 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 $8.20 $12.98 $38.79
Prediction #2 $2.81 $9.89 $24.72
Prediction #3 $4.93 $10.01 $70.02

First, CoinCodex  had a short-term GateToken price prediction which said the crypto could reach $4.72 by September 30 before dropping to $3.89 by October 25. The site’s technical analysis was bearish, with 17 indicators making discouraging signals and 15 sending bullish ones.

Looking at a more long-term GateToken price prediction, PricePrediction.net said it would reach $70.02 in 2030. DigitalCoinPrice said it would be worth $38.79. CaptainAltCoin had a GT price prediction which said it would trade at $24.72 at the start of the next decade. 

GT Price History

Now, let’s examine some of the highlights and lowlights of the GateToken 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 a GateToken price prediction.

GT first hit the open market in the summer of 2019 and it was worth about $0.75 in August that year. It stayed under the dollar for the next 18 months or so, but it rallied in early 2019, reaching an all-time high of $13.09 on May 12 2021. After that, it fell and it closed 2021 at $6.47.

GateToken took a hit in 2022, but it managed to avoid the worst of a poor year for crypto. A series of market crashes left it reeling and it closed the year at $2.99. A year-on-year drop of nearly 55% may have seemed bad but, when compared to a market that lost more than 60% over the course of the year, it was one of the better performing cryptos.

So far, 2023 has been good for GT overall, even though it has been on a downturn for the last few months. The crypto reached a high of $5.61 at multiple points in the middle of April. Since then, though, it has dropped. It was hit when the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) sued the Binance and Coinbase Exchanges. GateToken fell to a low of $3.63 on June 10. This low came after Crypto.com (CRO) announced it was suspending its American institutional operations.  

There was some recovery after that. GT hit $4.47 on July 3, but then slipped. On August 22, GateToken was worth about $3.90. The price of GateToken held pretty steady over the next month or so any, by September 25 2023, it was worth about $3.85. 

At that time, there were 96 million GT in circulation out of a total supply of 300 million. This gave GateToken a market cap of about $370 million, making it the 81st largest crypto by that metric. 

GateToken Price Analysis

GT reached its all-time high in May 2021, not long before the market crashed.

GateToken has been going down since May 2021

Looking at the chart above, we can see that GT’s price movements since its record price form a symmetrical triangle pattern. This would indicate that there has been equal pressure from both buyers and sellers over the last two years or so. 

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator suggests that the price is roughly where it should be, neither overbought nor oversold. 

It is possible that the sellers are in control of the GateToken market. This means there could well be a fall in the future, although, in the immediate short term, it could well stay more or less where it has been over the last month or so.

Is GateToken a Good Investment?

It is difficult to tell. A market-beating 2022 has been followed by a fairly average 2023. The coin’s price hasn’t responded as well to its recent burning as well as it could have.

On the other hand, the GateChain ecosystem is pretty active, which suggests that there is some potential for investors.

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

Will GateToken go up or down?

No one can really tell right now. While the GateToken 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 GateToken?

Before you decide whether or not to invest in GateToken, you will have to do your own research, not only on GT, but on other, related, coins and tokens such as Binance (BNB) or Huobi (HT). Either way, you will also need to make sure that you never invest more money than you can afford to lose.

From the Whitepaper

In its technical documentation, or whitepaper , GateChain, which hosts GateToken, says it wants to solve all of blockchain’s problems without compromising on principles.

It says: “GateChain is a novel next-generation public blockchain, focused on onchain asset safety and decentralized trading. With a uniquely designed Vault Account and its functions for handling abnormal transactions, GateChain presents a never before seen clearing mechanism, tackling the challenging problems of asset theft and private key loss. Decentralized trading and cross-chain transfers will also be supported alongside other core features.”

GateToken (GT) Explained

The GateChain  blockchain is designed to give users security. The platform wants people to trade and hold crypto without having to worry about fraud or the loss of their asset keys. 

Crypto entrepreneur and tech expert Han Lin founded GateChain in 2017 as a place to host his Gate.io crypto exchange, founded in 2013.  Its native coin, GateToken, came onto the market in 2019. GateToken is also known by its ticker handle, GT.

As well as its security-based blockchain and crypto exchange, GateChain also hosts people’s wallets. 

How GateToken Works

GateChain uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. This means that people are chosen to verify transactions and add blocks to the blockchain based on how much GT they hold. 

GT is also used to make payments on the system. GateToken also pays people who run the computers, or nodes, that help the blockchain operate. People can also buy, sell, and trade GT on exchanges. 

A certain amount of GT coins are destroyed, or burned, on a regular basis. This aims to keep the price of GateToken up. 

Something that makes GateToken a little different is that it is not just based on GateChain. It also operates on the Ethereum (ETH) and Solana (SOL) blockchains. However, since it is GateChain’s native token, it is fair to refer to it as a coin, even if the term GateToken coin does seem a bit unwieldy. 


How many GateToken are there?

On September 25 2023, there were 96 million GT in circulation out of a total supply of 300 million.

Will GateToken reach $10?

It could do. DigitalCoinPrice and PricePrediction.net both agree GT will reach double figures in 2025.

Keep in mind, though, that GateToken last traded at more than $10 in May 2021. 

What is GateToken used for?

GateToken is used to reward people who verify transactions on the GateChain blockchain. It also pays people who operate computers, or nodes, on the network. GT pays GateChain transaction fees. People can also buy, sell, and trade GateToken on exchanges.
