A panel of cryptocurrency experts told Finder what their top cryptocurrency choices would be in a prolonged bear market.
The consensus was that Bitcoin was the most “established cryptocurrency” and as such would be the top performer in a bear market.
After Bitcoin, 15% of panelists said Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) would be the best coin to watch.
"Ethereum has the most developers, the most usability and nearly 10 times as much total value locked on its blockchain as its closest competitor. The project is battle-tested and is ready for a bear market, unlike other less-proven coins," said Daniel Polotsky, the founder of Bitcoin ATM operator CoinFlip.
Aside from the top two cryptocurrencies, the panelists said Polkadot (CRYPTO: DOT), Polygon (CRYPTO: MATIC) and stablecoins like USD Coin (CRYPTO: USDC) and Tether (CRYPTO: USDT) were the best coins to hold for value preservation.
By the end of 2025, the panel predicts BTC will be worth $192,800 and climb to $406,400 by the end of 2030.
