# The Million Dollar Question

From May 2020 through May 2021, the crypto market has grown considerably. With COVID-19 being the headliner for 2020, it was difficult to find anything positive during that challenging time. However, there was a gift delivered to us when markets dropped to levels that even the most timid investor couldn’t ignore. In this article, I want to explore a "what if" scenario. Basically, I want to see how much money would have needed to be initially invested in crypto projects in 2020 to be worth a million dollars today.

**Cardano**

May 1, 2020: $0.05

May 1, 2021: $1.32

Initial Investment Needed: $37,878.78

**Doge Coin**

May 1, 2020: $0.002

May 1, 2021: $0.37

Initial Investment Needed: $5,405.40

**Vechain**

May 1, 2020: $0.004

May 1, 2021: $0.21

Initial Investment Needed: $19,047.61

**Voyager Token**

May 1, 2020: $0.03

May 1, 2021: $4.48

Initial Investment: $6,696.57

Now you see what type of capital would have been needed to make $1 million based on those prices in May 2020. To get the future price for hitting a million dollars with current prices, use this formula:

1) **Take your initial capital and divide it by the current price.**

Initial Capital / Current Price = Number of Coins

2) **Divide $1,000,000 by the Number of Coins from the first step.** This will give you the future price the asset must go to in order to make $1 million.

$1,000,000 / Number of Coins = Future Price

Example: I have $5,000 to place into a coin that is currently $0.05. Investing this amount will give me 100,000 coins. If I divide $1,000,000 by 100,000, the answer is $10. This means that the price of the coin must reach $10 in order for my initial investment to turn into $1 million.

$5,000 / $0.05 = 100,000 (Number of Coins)

$1,000,000 / 100,000 coins = $10 (Future Price)

Now, go set your goals and let's make these millions!
