Is RARI a good investment in Canada?
RARI was released to the market in August 2020 with an initial price of $0.31, and very soon, it could reach $7. Thus, it was a wonderful investment for only a few months. However, it didn’t resume that well and ended the year with a price of $2. Although it seemed that RARI token holders were facing failure, 2021 was very amazing for them because the RARI price reached its highest record of $49 in March of 2021. After this record, the RARI price faced many ups and downs until it ended the year with a value of $13. 2022 started profitably for RARI holders. At the beginning of the year, the RARI price amounted to $23 and then fell again. It couldn’t set any price record and even dropped to $1.84 by the end of the year.
The history of the RARI token shows it was a good investment for its owners several times. However, it was stagnating and might seem uninteresting for people to buy. Furthermore, no one can tell you what may happen to this coin in the following years. But the price predictions may give you a hint about the expected future of RARI. Crypto analysts and experts expect the RARI price to go up again in the next 5 years and may become stable at $10 by 2026 and might reach $17 by 2030.

What is Rarible ?
Rarible is the first cryptocurrency dedicated to NFTs, launched in 2020.
