For the uninitiated, Arbitrum is a widely popular layer-2 scaling resource for Ethereum, helping with affordable network fees and higher throughput. In this Arbitrum price prediction, we consider how the price levels corresponding to ARB — the native token — might move over time. Per our 2023 prediction, ARB breached our minimum price prediction of the year — $0.97 to make a low at $0.76. While this might have benefited the short-sellers, let us see if 2024 comes with bullish optimism or not,

Arbitrum  — the network — has been around since August 2021. Yet, the native token ARB was only launched on March 23, 2023. Even before the launch, Arbitrum, the layer-2 platform, had an impressive DeFi presence — with a top 5 rank. Since the token launch, ARB’s counter has seen some insane levels of trading actions courtesy of retail buyers and whales. With so much going on in relation to the price action, let’s check out the purported future price of ARB using fundamental and technical analysis.

ARB price prediction and the role of fundamentals

We shall now look at the fundamentals to understand the growth curve of Arbitrum between 2021 and 2023. That will help us better relate the price of ARB to similar projects and token launches involving Optimism and Polygon — other popular layer-2 platforms for Ethereum.

Arbitrum uses Optimistic Rollups to scale Ethereum DApps. Needless to say, the network itself is EVM compatible, highly scalable, and can support around 40,000 transactions per second

Let us now shift focus to Arbitrum’s DeFi outlook — a value that peaked at $2.9 billion in November 2021. As of December 19, 2023, the TVL is at its highest at $3.3 billion, including the ARB pools and lending ecosystems that have recently surfaced with the launch of ARB. Do note that the TVL hasn’t surged massively since our last update — in April. This could be the reason why ARB hasn’t shown a significant price rise.

Overall, the highest-ever TVL a month after the token launch seems like a positive development. Let us now look at Optimism’s TVL and price movement — another popular layer-2 platform, to see where the prices of ARB might settle in days to come.

Optimism TVL and the impact on ARB

Optimism’s native OP tokens came to the fore on May 31, 2022, reaching an all-time high price of $4.569 immediately post-launch. Like ARB, OP tokens were initially airdropped, which aligns the price movement expectations of the latter with those of the former. 

Despite the highs made in May, the price of OP dropped to its all-time low of $0.400 on June 18, 2022.

Do note that the price TVL of Optimism peaked on Aug. 10, 2022, at $2.65 billion. On the same day, the price of OP was $1.69 — a 322% growth from its all-time low. Assuming that the price action of ARB moves similarly to that of OP, it might be safe to assume that ARB might take less time to move past its all-time low. And that is what happened as despite hitting the lows of almost 70 cents, ARB, as of December 19, 2023, is trading at $1.10.

Optimism DeFi TVL and price action

Yet, there remains a catch. Optimism reached an all-time low in under a month after the token launch. Therefore, it is safe to wait and see if ARB moves any lower than the current low of $1.104. Notably, even ARB reached its all-time low, months after being listed. This shows even ARB is following OP’s footsteps, in terms of price rise.

Also, Optimism’s TVL was around $242.73 million on June 18, 2022 — the day when the all-time low was reached. In under 60 days, the TVL surged by over ten times, and the price moved up by almost 322%. As of December 19, 2023, the TVL has dropped under a billion, showing that all Layer-2 scaling solutions had it tough in 2023.

However, ARB’s TVL growth has been steady, and we might have to wait longer for another low to surface and for the TVL presence to correct before the price of ARB can start moving toward its new high.

The roadmap for Arbitrum

Regardless of what has transpired already in regard to Arbitrum, here is everything that might be in store for this layer-2 scaling giant in the years and months to come:

  1. An upcoming layer-3 scaling resource called “Orbit.”
  2. Multi-language DApp deployment
  3. Expanding the validator set to institutions
  4. Integration with The Graph Protocol
  5. Multi-lingual Dapp coverage

Arbitrum price prediction and the associated tokenomics

Tokenomics plays a major role in determining the price action of any cryptocurrency. As for ARB, the total supply cap is 10 billion, with close to 19% being moved out already as nearly claimed airdrops and unlocks. Do note that ARB is primarily a governance token, not intended to pay gas or transaction fees. 

Here is what the initial token allocation looks like:

Also, here is what the vesting schedule looks like, post the last unlock in October 2023. Do note that the price of ARB dropped close to this unlock event.

Considering the 4-year lock-ups, we can expect the total 10 billion support to become the circulating supply by 2027. Once fully diluted, the scarcity quotient might creep in, trying to push the prices higher — considering the demand remains the same or increases.

At present, 15% of the total supply seems to be locked, with the next cliff token unlock expected on March 16, 2024. This could be when the prices drop slightly more than expected. 

As of now, the price fluctuations are mostly due to the buying and selling of unlocked ARB tokens.

Key metrics and ARB price prediction 

Even though it is quite early to evaluate the future prices of ARB based on the on-chain metrics, here are a few insights that can nudge you in the right direction with the expectations.

ARB transaction count: Dune Analytics
ARB transaction count: Dune Analytics

Per data from Dune Analytics, Arbitrum transactions have continued to move up. As of April 24, 2023, the cumulative transactions were increasing. 

Even in December 2023, the transaction count has suddenly picked up pace, showing that the tables might soon turn for ARB, going into 2024.

Another important aspect is the percentage of ARB held by the top addresses. Per data from CoinMarketCap in April 2024, the top 100 ARB holders manage almost 76.5% of the total supply. This might be a cause for concern if there is a market-wide sell-off. However, at present, the whales only hold close to 60% of the supply, which feels like an optimistic development.

Arbitrum price prediction and technical analysis

Before we go deep into the technical analysis of ARB for 2023 end, it is important to note that there isn’t a lot of historical data available for us to chart everything up to 2035 accurately. Therefore, we shall frequently refer to the price movement of Polygon (MATIC) and Optimism (OP) to help you identify the short-term and long-term ARB prices.

But first, let us look at the short-term technical analysis of ARB to locate the upcoming support and resistance levels, if any. Below is a 2-hour chart for your reference. Also, let us see how the April 2023 price analysis performed.

April 2023 price analysis (old one for context)

Do note that ARB traced a falling wedge pattern, closing in on the upper trendline. ARB managed to breach the upper trendline and did reach the highest-ever price of $1.69 and followed it up with spurts close to the $1.27 mark.

However, we predicted that a drop below $1.30 could push the prices lower. And that is exactly what happened.

Also, here are the moving averages corresponding to the 2-hour chart, plotted back in April. Notice how the 200 MA line (red) was about to cross above the 50 MA line (green). This death crossover led to some quick corrections at ARB’s counter.

ARB price analysis (December 19, 2023)

Honestly speaking, with ARB making an ascending wedge pattern, we might expect some more correction before 2023 ends. The lower trendline, or the $1.1 level is acting as the immediate support. However, if the volume pillars turn green and the 20-EMA line (red line) stays above the orange line, we can expect the prices to improve. To be able to follow our 2024 ARB price prediction level, ARB must first breach the $1.27 mark — the previous high.

Arbitrum (ARB) price prediction 2024

Outlook: Bullish

To predict the ARB price prediction for 2024, we can now visit the weekly chart of ARB, as there is enough data available.

Based on the chart, we can track ARB’s move from A to B, B to C, C to D, and D to E to predict the. next leg of movement.

ARB price prediction tradingview chart
ARB price prediction 2024: TradingView

A to B: 28 days and +262.90 %

B to C: 56 days and -49.97%

C to D: 35 days and +48.48%

D to E: 56 days and -45.16%

The next high, even from a more conservative point of view can be 48.48%. However, if we take the average of two highs — A to B and C to D — the price rise could be 155.69%. Plotting the same from E puts the next high at $1.9. This could be the first high per the 2024 ARB price prediction.

Once this level is breached, ARB can move towards its expected 2024 level of $4.55.

Initial expected ROI: 72% from the current levels

Arbitrum (ARB) price prediction 2023

Here is how we tracked ARB in 2023, relying way too much on OP and MATIC.

Now, let us pull up the daily chart of Optimism to see the price drop possibilities, assuming that ARB tokens will follow in the footsteps of OP tokens.

OP price chart: TradingView
OP price chart: TradingView

Starting from A, we can chart the high-to-low and low-to-high moves as follows:

A to M: -81.79%
M to B: 458.89%
B to N: -71.50%
N to C: 411.78%
C to O:-46.42%

So from the last high to the next low, OP moved -46.42%. Also, the max drop timeframe could be 77 days (the move between B to N)

For ARB, the last high was $1.82. Keeping this in mind, the next low could be at a drop of 46.42% in 77 days (the timeframe can vary depending on the state of the crypto market). That would put the ARB price prediction low for 2023 at $0.9725 in July 2023.

Why the price prediction didn’t fit?

However, the dip happened in October, when the token unlock event took place. Our predicted minimum price was bested by the bears in 2023. Plus, Ethereum getting into the deflationary space post the PoS transition, did steal some L2 limelight.

ARB price prediction and 2023 low: TradingView

Circling back to the OP price analysis, the average of low-to-high moves comes forth as 435.33% in 88 days (approx). Also, if we look at the daily price chart of ARB, the last two low-to-high moves were:

188.49% and 65.15% for M to B and N to C, respectively.

Taking the average of these two values puts the ARB-specific low-to-high level at 126.82% in 12 days.

Now, we can find the average between the OP and ARB moves to get to a common ground for the next high. This puts the average high and time frame at 281.075% and 50 days. Therefore, the Arbitrum price prediction high for 2023 could surface at $3.70. However, Ethereum’s popularity didn’t help this analysis and

Arbitrum (ARB) price prediction 2025

Outlook: Bullish

If we now revisit the daily chart of ARB (with some assistance from OP’s chart), based on 2023 data, we can identify all the high-to-low moves. 

These include drops of 68.44%, 23.34%, and 46.42%, respectively. Therefore, with three data points, we can assume the next high-to-low drop percentage is 46%

Now that we have the expected price of ARB at $3.7 in 2023 (which wasn’t reached), the next low could surface at a drop of 46%. Therefore, the next low for ARB could be at $2. If we now use the low-to-high moves from the ARB’s chart alone, the next high could surface at 203.95% (taking the average of 126.82% and 281.075%). Despite not reaching the 2023 high, we are optimistic about ARB as the bull market is pushing the popular tokens higher.

And while 203.95% looks significant, Polygon and Optimism are still seeing a bulk of developer action for the layer-2 scaling platforms. Therefore, a price growth of 126.82% seems more plausible in the next few months. This puts the price of ARB tokens at $4.55 by early 2024. 

However, we can expect a token unlock closer to March 23, 2024. Considering this event, we can expect a price drop of 68.44% (per ARB’s deepest price drop, hours after the launch). This expectation puts the price of ARB at $1.43. Do note we expect this dip to happen anytime after March 23, 2024.

Road to 2025

If we revisit the ARB and OP price chart, a move of 281.075% might be on the cards after a low of $1.43. Also, the time taken for the same could be 126 days, per Optimism’s low-to-high timeframe for the N to C path.

Arbitrum price prediction 2025: TradingView
Arbitrum price prediction 2025: TradingView

This puts the high in 2025 at $5.49. But then, if OP and MATIC also keep growing, we can expect this high to surface closer to early 2025. 

The next low could go back to the average drop of 46%, using ARB’s previous percentage drops of 68.44%, 23.34%, and 46.42%. 

This would put 2025 low for ARB tokens at $2.97. 

Projected ROI from the current level: 399%

Arbitrum (ARB) price prediction 2030

Outlook: Very bullish

If you take a look at our MATIC price prediction for 2025, the expected high and low could be $5.38 and $1.75, respectively. Our Arbitrum price prediction puts 2025 high at $5.49, which is similar to that of MATIC. Hence, we can assume that the price of Arbitrum follows the same growth trajectory as that of Polygon and its native cryptocurrency MATIC.

Arbitrum price prediction 2030: TradingView
Arbitrum price prediction 2026: TradingView

From the 2025 low, the next high could follow a growth curve of 203.95% (taking the average of 126.82% and 281.075%). For the sake of easy calculations, we can expect this high, or $9.02, to surface in 2026. 

We now have the 2023 low ($0.9725) and the 2026 high ($9.02). It is now time to extrapolate the path between them to locate the price of ARB tokens till 2030. Do note that this extrapolation might not be accurate, but it can still provide a rough estimate of how ARB might move in the years to come.

Extrapolating the same puts the price of ARB at close to $24.50 by the end of 2030.

Is the Arbitrum price prediction model accurate?

Our Arbitrum price prediction model considers fundamentals, on-chain metrics, and technical analysis. Plus, we have drawn parallels with the price action of the other layer-2 Ethereum scaling solutions like Optimism and Polygon. All of that makes this ARB price prediction piece as realistic as possible. However, these levels might change depending on the state of the broader crypto market.
