Polkadot Price Prediction: $17.8 Possible by Next Week

Our Polkadot price prediction suggests that the Dot price could correct to $17.8 before making aiming another higher move. Polkadot crypto bounced off the lows of $14 in February 2022 and has been in an uptrend since then. However, after the rejection from the $23.88 level, the price failed to make a higher high. Consequently, bears are gaining momentum again, and Polkadot price has broken the trendline.

What Is Polkadot?

Polkadot is a smart contract platform that would ultimately host 100 parachains. In conventional smart contract blockchains, all network activity happens on a single chain, resulting in network congestion. Examples of such platforms are Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, etc. Furthermore, the Polkadot coin is the native token of the Polkadot ecosystem. Therefore, any Polkadot price prediction mainly depends on the adoption of its parachains.

Polkadot aims to solve this problem by dividing the network load across different parachains with specific purposes. Projects like Moonbeam, Acala, Parallel Finance, etc., have already secured their parachains slots. Moreover, auctions for parachains slots 12-18 are already live.
