As the decentralization of financial services becomes mainstream, an increasing number of users were causing congestion in the Ethereum network. To address this issue, Layer-2 protocols were developed as they act as secondary blockchains to complete most of the work. Thus, it reduces the transaction (gas) fees and provides the same level of security as the Ethereum blockchain.

Amid an increasing acceptance of cryptocurrencies and an expected demand surge for DEXs, LRC token’s price could reach the US$ 5 mark by the end of this year and US$ 8 per token by the end of 2022. However, this is by no means a given.

Bottom line

Distributed ledger technology and transparency in crypto transactions will likely boost the growth prospects of the cryptocurrency market. A Markets and Markets report notes that the market size of this industry is estimated to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.1 per cent and value around US$ 2.2 billion by 2026.
