Crypto market to hit $200T within 10 years — Animoca co-founder

The value of the global cryptocurrency ecosystem will grow exponentially in the coming years and has a potential to grow up to 200 times in a decade, according to a co-founder of Hong Kong-based game software company and venture capital firm Animoca Brands.

The cryptocurrency market — currently valued at around $2.7 trillion according to CoinGecko — is likely to double or triple soon, Yat Siu predicted in the latest episode of The Valr Podcast on May 28.

“It is entirely conceivable that we’re going to have a billion property owners because we’re going to have a billion token holders. This is not possible in the physical world,” the exec added.

Siu’s optimism about the potential growth of the Web3 market aligns with his bullish stance on Bitcoin (BTC), the largest cryptocurrency by market value, which…
