🎆 335 people thought it would take at least a year; "Epoxy" thought it would be unstuck on Mar 29, 2022.
💥 559 people thought the ship would break in two ("damiannelus" being one of them)
🌊 1010 people thought the ship would tip over ("My Dummy Thicc Cheeks" being one of them)
💰 $43 billion was the estimated cost due to the ship having blocked the Suez Canal
💰 $59 billion was the estimated value being held up due to the blockage
Allianz calculated that each day the ship wasn't moving, the costs for global trade would be between $6 and $10 billion dollars. So the "cost" is just that calculation extrapolated for the time it was stuck.
Disclaimer being that it's impossible to accurately predict how much the incident costs now and what the future effects will be. Take this (and any) estimation with a grain of salt.
Approximately 12% of all global trade moves through the Suez Canal. Lloyd's List estimates  that normally daily westbound traffic through the Suez Canal is $5.1 billion a day and eastbound it's around $4.5 billion per day. So the "estimated value" is just that calculation extrapolated for the time it was stuck.
Of course it's impossible to accurately predict how much value was being held up. Some ships might have changed/delayed travel plans. Take this (and any) estimation with a grain of salt.
