Celestia Price History

Fundraising for the Celestia network was completed through numerous seed and funding rounds in March 2021 and October 2022, respectively.

The Celestia mainnet was launched on October 31st, 2023, to high expectations. Many exchanges, including Coinbase and Binance, announced support for Celestia’s TIA token in the days leading up to the launch of the network.

Prior to the release of the Celestia mainnet and the TIA token’s listing on exchanges, TIA Futures were exchanging hands at $3.15. However, the market seems to have found prices much lower than this, and, according to Celestia’s page on CoinMarketCap, the Celestia token price hit lows of $2.0281 and highs of $2.492 on its first day of trading, a trading range of 18.62%. Since then, it has trended in a roughly upward direction and hit highs of $2.8304, without yet testing the $2 mark.

Celestia Price History Summary

  • Celestia debuted on the markets on the same day as its mainnet launch, October 31st, 2023.
  • Prior to going live, Futures contracts for the Celestia token, TIA, were swapping hands for $3.15.
  • On its first day of trading, Celestia hit lows of $2.0281 and highs of $2.492, a trading range of 18.62%.
  • TIA hit a high of $2.8304 on November 2nd.
  • In its first few days of trading, Celestia experienced no huge moves and has shown signs of wanting to stay above $2.

Celestia Price Prediction 2024

Celestia may have settled into a comfortable trading pattern by 2024, allowing us to use technical analysis to inform our future price predictions. But, with the lack of chart information, we fall back on less clear-cut pieces of information that will affect our Celestia coin forecast.

One of the main topics buzzing around the crypto markets for 2024 is the influence the 2024 Bitcoin Halving event will have on the crypto markets. History tells us that the price impact of these events lags 12–18 months behind the event itself, but 2024 looks to be a different year, with global and institutional interest in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies growing, crypto regulations taking shape in nations around the world, and the world still not yet out of the economic problems caused by 2020’s global pandemic, there may be more to the Bitcoin Halving of 2024 than history tells us.

Even in the week after its launch, the Celestia ecosystem already boasted an impressive number of wallets, developer tools, cross-chain bridges, and DeFi protocols. As developers and new dApps come onto the network, it can be expected that prices will pump should there be any big announcements. For such a new protocol, there’s also the chance that some big partnerships could be announced, and these almost always swing the price needle.

Celestia, Layer 0 is social Consensus

Finally, one of the most influential factors for most blockchains is their development roadmap. The problem for Celestia is that there is no roadmap to be found. The company can be seen to be saying that they hope to support 1GB blocks in the future, but past that, there is no roadmap laid out for the development of the recently launched mainnet. Roadmaps allow investors and a community to hype a coin’s upcoming upgrades; this doesn’t yet exist for Celestia.

On the back of all this, we expect Celestia to continue strong into 2024 as Bitcoin Halves and the network, almost inevitably, announces key partnerships and dApps, potentially from well-known companies, choosing to launch on Celestia. For that reason, our 2024 price prediction for Celestia is a high of $30, a low of $3, and an average price of $18.

Celestia Price Forecast Long Term Outlook – 2025-2030 Predictions

Looking further ahead to the last five years of this decade, it gets more and more difficult to predict the future price of cryptocurrencies that are as young as Celestia. However, information like the information used for our 2024 Celestia token forecast can also be used here.

2025 Price Prediction

According to history, the full effect of a Bitcoin Halving occurs 12–18 months after it happened. This means that new ATHs for Bitcoin and other coins will likely come in 2025. Taking that into account, along with the continued evolution of the Celestia network and the uptake of the modular blockchain concept, we are looking at a positive year.
It is also worth remembering, however, that a percentage of early investors’ vested tokens will be released before and during this year, and they could be waiting for the spike in price caused by the Bitcoin Halving event to maximize their gains. As a result, TIA’s price could see huge downward pressure as it hits its highest moments.

As a result, our Celestia price prediction for 2025 is a high of $32, a low of $8.50, and a median price of $26.

2030 Price Prediction

The landscape for blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies will look very different in 2030. Technological improvements, along with regulatory, economic, and social changes, can be predicted, but not with any certainty.

One thing we know for sure is that, by this time, the size of leading blockchains will almost definitely be a technical burden on their ability to stay decentralized. At the time of writing, the Ethereum blockchain is already over 780GB in size and growing in size at an exceptional rate. The modular properties of Celestia and its ability to accept multiple VMs and programming languages certainly have it winning in this area.

We will also have passed through another Bitcoin Halving cycle by 2030, and will likely be coming down off the highs experienced in 2029. Our Celestia price prediction for 2030 is a high of $54, a low of $32, and an average price of $42.

Potential Highs & Lows of Celestia Coin Price

Even though Celestia only went live on the markets on October 31st, 2023, we can take the technological benefits, current market sentiments, and the expected influence of future market events and make some good price forecasts.

Year Low Price Average Price High Price
2024 $3 $12 $18
2025 $8.50 $26 $32
2030 $32 $42 $54

What is Celestia Coin and What is it Used for?

The Celestia token, TIA, is the native currency of the Celestia modular blockchain network, which is built on top of a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism. From the ground up, the Celestia project rethinks the way blockchains are designed. It approaches the concept of distributed ledger technology with a new approach that has built-in flexibility for builders, and increased transaction speeds and reduced gas costs for users. All without sacrificing decentralization or security.

The “Layers” of Blockchains

Most of the blockchains we know and use today can be thought of as having four core functions: data availability, consensus, execution and settlement. These are typically called layers. When someone creates a layer 2 for an existing blockchain like Ethereum, they are removing the execution layer from the network but still using Ethereum for data availability, consensus, and settlement.

Rollups choose to remove the execution layer of blockchains as these are the most computationally complex and time and energy consuming tasks. By splitting this function away from the main blockchain, layer 1, rollups can be optimized as an execution environment—increasing transaction throughput and drastically reducing the layer 1 gas fees by bundling transactions together.

Having all of a blockchain’s layers operating on a single ledger limits how developers can build on that chain and the amount of work the chain can do, limiting its overall transaction throughput. Abstracting these layers, as is done with layer 2s and the Celestia protocol, enhances the user experience and allows blockchains to scale without sacrificing the other two pillars of blockchain technology: decentralization and security.

Modular vs Monolithic Blockchains

Almost all existing blockchains fall into the category of monolithic blockchains. A monolithic blockchain is one where all the blockchain’s core functions exist as a part of the same protocol.

This limits developers to writing contracts in the programming languages supported by the chain, provides an upper limit for contract execution and transaction throughput, and only allows for contract programming updates when they are implemented throughout the whole network with a hard fork.

Modular blockchains, like Celestia, separate these core functions. In particular, Celestia acts as the data availability and consensus layer—typically combined under the term data availability—for blockchains, i.e., rollups, that are built on top of it. These developers build and maintain their blockchains on top of Celestia, publishing their blocks and transactions to the Celestia mainnet, which guarantees data availability and security.

Light Nodes: How They Work and Why They’re Important

Blockchains are growing larger and larger each day, and as adoption increases, the speed at which they grow will only increase. This brings with it a network scaling problem because the larger the blockchain is, the more data users need to download to verify the whole blockchain and run a full node or stake pool.

Eventually, this could turn into a security problem, with fewer and fewer participants able to participate in the consensus mechanism of a blockchain.

The Importance of Data Availability in Blockchains

Blockchains are built on the idea that anyone, at any time, can download the whole transaction history of a blockchain and verify the blocks and transactions on the network themselves. This data availability what enables anyone to participate in the production and validation of blocks, and it is an essential part of a decentralized network’s security.

If only a few full nodes store a blockchain’s data, then this presents a security risk to the blockchain, as this level of centralization can lead to manipulation of the data on the chain. Light nodes do exist on some blockchains, but they often only download the block headers and not all the transactions, meaning that all the transactions are not validated by them.

Ultimately, data needs to be made available for dApps to function and to protect the security and decentralization of a blockchain network.

Light nodes on the Celestia network work by employing a technique called Data Availability Sampling (DAS). Using DAS, these light nodes sample random chunks of blocks to verify that all the data is available. The more sampling they conduct with positive results, the more likely that all the data is available and valid.

Once a threshold is met, they can consider the blockchain verified without reviewing all of it. This means that these light nodes aren’t required to download and verify the whole blockchain, saving both time and space. In fact, these nodes are so light that they can even be run on laptops and mobile devices.

The more light nodes there are verifying the availability of data using random data sampling, the greater confidence users can have that the blockchain is valid and that data is available.

The Benefits of Using Celestia

Celestia’s modular approach, combined with light nodes working through DAS to verify data availability, affords multiple benefits for developers and users.

  • Scalability: On monolithic blockchains, all dApps and contracts work in the same executing environments, sharing and competing for the computational resources of the network they’re built on—largely limiting their ability to scale efficiently. With Celestia, each dApp can have its own execution environment that can be scaled as the dApp grows. Allowing users to expect fast and consistent transaction times and settlement.
  • Security: dApps and rollups built on Celestia inherit the security of the underlying Celestia proof-of-stake consensus protocol.
  • Unlimited VMs: Smart contracts are executed in a Virtual Machine (VM), e.g., the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). Using a monolithic blockchain means developers have to use the execution environment of its virtual machine, which only uses a very limited number of programming languages. On Celestia, the developer defines their execution environment, VM, and can, therefore, choose one that offers them what they need, be that certain functionalities or being able to work in a particular programming language.
  • Increased Transaction Speed: By abstracting the execution environment from the underlying blockchain, Celestia allows developers to build dApps that offer significantly faster and more scalable transaction speeds than those on competing blockchains.
  • Independence and Customizability: Having an abstracted execution environment allows developers and communities to choose their own VM and programming language as specified above, but it also allows them to change these elements of their dApp or rollup without the other dApps built on Celestia even knowing (or even needing to know).
  • Improved Decentralization: Using DAS, users can run light nodes that verify the blockchain on their own devices, greatly increasing the number of network nodes and, as a result, the network’s decentralization.

The Use Cases for Celestia’s TIA Token

While dApp transactions and contract executions are abstracted to a layer built on top of Celestia, the Celestia network still has its native currency, TIA, which plays an important role in the Celestia ecosystem.

  • Blockchains and dApps must pay fees in TIA to post their blocks of transaction data to the Celestia network.
  • Protocols deployed on Celestia can opt to use TIA as their gas token and currency, or they can create their own (but they still need to pay the aforementioned fees in TIA).
  • Celestia is a POS network that utilizes TIA for staking and uses TIA to reward those staker.
  • Those who stake TIA can participate in the decentralized governance of the Celestia protocol.

What Influences the Price of Celestia?

As Celestia begins to find its feet in the market, there is a lot of speculation at play. However, as time passes and TIA finds a range to trade in, there will be specific things that we can expect to influence the price of Celestia.

  • Crypto Market Moves: All altcoins track Bitcoin’s price and move up and down with it. As things happen in the world of the biggest cryptocurrency, expect Celestia to mimic these moves.
  • Bitcoin Halving: Combining the above point with the Bitcoin Halving event, we can expect Celestia to follow the rest of the market during these events.
  • Partnerships and Technical Improvements: Celestia is a new blockchain, and it has everything ahead of it that many blockchains have already done. This includes partnering with companies and introducing protocol upgrades. Expect news and anticipation of these events to have a positive impact on the price of TIA.
  • Bad News for Other Layer 2s: Celestia operates in the world of layer 2s. If there’s negative news, especially high profile negative news, about one of the more prominent layer 2 networks, we can expect the TIA price to take a hit as it will be guilty by association.
  • Token Vesting Releases: Investors’ tokens, totaling 36% of the total supply, are vested over a period of 4 years. Each year, after the release of these tokens, we can probably expect an extended period of sell pressure on the price of TIA.
  • Move to Modular: There are many who think that the modular blockchain is the future. With its DAS light nodes and ability to use multiple VMs and programming languages, Celestia seems to be out in front driving the change. If the move to modular happens, then that will be positive news for TIA.
  • Roadmap: From what is currently available, it doesn’t seem like Celestia has yet developed a roadmap for the improvement of its recently released mainnet. When this roadmap emerges, and milestones are met, we can expect the TIA token to react positively if these are positive moments and negatively if they’re negative moments.

Is Celestia a Buy?

With a team who’ve already delivered a professional product, Celestia seems to have a strong future ahead of it—once a roadmap has been released. As Celestia finds its feet in the early days of the market, it can be a risk to get involved. However, the opposite is also true, as the upside for new coins can be huge.

With a Bitcoin Halving around the corner and an ecosystem that can only grow from here on out, Celestia is a very inviting prospect as the crypto winter begins to thaw. Along with these prospects for the near future, we should also consider the more distant future and the potential move toward modular blockchains. Here, Celestia is well positioned to be a market leader.

Best Place to Buy Celestia

Celestia is listed on major exchanges, including Binance. You can buy TIA either on Binance’s spot market with 0.1% fees or lower, or you can buy it with a card.

The latter comes with slightly higher fees but it’s faster if you want to have your TIA tokens right away.

Binance exchange

Those who want to speculate on TIA’s price can do so with up to 5x leverage, while those looking to increase their TIA coins in a low-risk manner can use Binance Earn. his allows you to lock your coins for up to 120 days to earn up to 19.9% APR. There are some quota limitations to keep in mind, however.

Another way to increase your TIA coins is to dollar-cost average with the auto-invest feature. You set up an investment amount and time frame and Binance will purchase TIA coins on your behalf. Make sure to check out Binance and use its features to grow your portfolio.

Don’t invest unless you’re prepared to lose all the money you invest. This is a high-risk investment and you should not expect to be protected if something goes wrong.

Conclusion

As Celestia and the modular blockchain concept continue to gain traction, we could see a shift in the blockchain landscape that benefits the price of TIA. With an ecosystem that is primed to bring on a large number of developers writing in many languages, Celestia is ready to change the way we think about blockchains and distributed ledger technology.

However, without a roadmap and the fact that it is yet another chain offering something else new, will investors take to it? Will it become one of the best cryptocurrencies to hold? Only time will tell.
