At the Finder.com crypto comparison site, the experts are optimistic about the development of the Bitcoin price this year. In addition, especially EOS, BNB and TRX are forecasting a rosy year.
The Finder comparison page predicts a rise in Bitcoin by 89 percent by 31 December 2019 in its February issue of its in-house cryptocurrency report. Ten fintech entrepreneurs are predicting their 2019 year-over-year performance as part of a Finder survey and are – for the most part – optimistic. EOS (EOS), Binance Coin (BNB) and TRON (TRX) are expected to top performers in 2019, with an expected price increase of up to 727 percent.
Co-Pierre Georg is a professor of finance at the University of Cape Town and an economist with the Deutsche Bundesbank. Contrary to the expectations of his industry colleagues, Pierre Georg sees the Bitcoin price at $ 1,000 by the end of the year. Particularly the regulatory hurdles of the USA and China as well as the emergence of stable coins, as most recently by Facebook, could according to Pierre Georg continue to exert pressure on the Bitcoin price.

Even in financial matters Finder offers support – as in the monthly crypto currency report. The forecasts are based on an average of the experts’ estimates. The information in the cryptocurrency report should therefore be treated with caution. Finally, Finder warns its readers themselves – the panelists may be in possession of the mentioned currencies and may therefore be biased. In addition, one must bear in mind that with Fred Schebesta also a co-founder and co-CEO of Finder.com is represented among the experts.
Entrepreneurship is one of Australia’s youngest self-made millionaires. Schebesta announced last year its plans to found Australia’s first crypto bank. To get closer to this goal, Schebesta has already acquired “significant shares” from an Australian custodian bank. In addition, Schebesta operates the bitcoin exchange HiveEx with Finder co-CEO Frank Restuccia.
