MATIC Price Demonstrated Bullishness, How Soon Will It Touch $1?

MATIC price had been on a bearish trajectory for the past few days. Over the last week, the coin hasn’t made any progress in terms of price appreciation. In the last 24 hours however, MATIC registered a 2% increase in its market value. Currently Polygon MATIC price is slightly underneath the $1 price mark. Price of MATIC has been stuck below the $1 mark for months now, every time the bulls start to pick up momentum, the coin was met with selling pressure. For MATIC to invalidate the bearish thesis completely, it is important that the coin trades above the $1 mark for a considerable duration. Technical outlook for the coin has turned positive however, this positive reading could soon lose steam if buying strength doesn’t remain consistent over the next trading sessions. At the current moment, MATIC has registered increased number of buyers compared to sellers. MATIC price still has to encounter a tough resistance at the $1 mark. The coin hasn’t been able to break past that resistance for months now. A small decline in price would push MATIC price to $0.74 before another potential rally. MATIC Price Analysis: Four Hour Chart The price of the altcoin was $0.92 at the time of writing. MATIC price was trading close to its $1 price mark, the bulls tried to push price towards the $1 mark at the end of last month but it was invalidated by sellers in the market. A strong overhead resistance for MATIC was at $1. A fall from the present price level will drag the altcoin down to $0.73 and then eventually to $0.68. Amount of MATIC traded in the past session fell on the chart. This reading is tied to a fall in selling strength for the altcoin in the market. Technical Analysis Polygon’s MATIC price had registered a substantial recovery since the middle of last month. Despite the recovery, MATIC had visited the oversold territory once and had also registered increased number of sellers compared to buyers. At press time however, buying strength remained more than selling pressure. The Relative Strength Index was placed slightly above the half-line indicating bullishness as buyers exceeded sellers. MATIC price was above the 20-SMA line. Price of the altcoin also managed to move above the 50-SMA. Both these observations point towards buyers driving the price momentum in the market.

Moving Average Convergence Divergence depicts the price momentum and trend reversal. The indicator despite a minor price appreciation underwent a bearish crossover and flashed red signal bars. The red signal bars are an indication of sell signal on the chart. Chaikin Money Flow is responsible in determining capital inflows and outflows. CMF stood above the half-line, into the positive zone as the coin registered increased amount of capital inflows than outflows. For MATIC to soar past the $1, broader market strength and buying pressure will be required.

The price pump for CryptoDickbutts is a surprise but somehow Meltem Demirors, Coinshares Chief Strategy Officer, may have something to do with it. Recently, Demiros started this so-called emergency Twitter Spaces on Sunday. Apparently, Demirors mentioned, “The Dickbutt community has always been about one thing and one thing only, and that is the universal truth of one D equals one B… I also think that commenting on prices defeats from the overall objective here. Dickbutts are not about investing. Dickbutts are a culture.” CDB started out as a joke but is now taken seriously by the NFT community. CDB was able to strike partnerships and collaborations with Silver Jets and Naughty America, among others.

Market Sentiment Holds Steady As Bitcoin Aims For $24,000

Bitcoin has been holding steady over the weekend. The cryptocurrency had been able to beat the $24,000 mark last week but had retraced downward not long after. However, this retracement has not had too much of a negative impact on the sentiment toward the digital asset. As bitcoin has started upwards once more, the market sentiment has been incredibly strong.  Bitcoin Goes For $24,000 The opening of the new week saw bitcoin start below $24,000 in the early hours of Monday. This quickly changed with a rally on a 6-hour basis that saw bitcoin add more than $500 to its value. This helped it reclaim this coveted point once more, putting it firmly above its 50-day moving average. Related Reading: Here’s What Bitcoin Institutional Inflows Says About The Month Of July Now, the 50-day MA has always been an important technical level for bitcoin. It was one indication of the crash that rocked the market two months ago and the bear market trend that ensured. Since the digital asset has now beat this point, it has now converted the bearish indicators to bullish ones. It has also resulted in a reversal of the selling pressure in the market. Now, as buy pressure mounts, the value of bitcoin is expected to grow. The recent recovery has now adequately moved the support level for bitcoin. The recent move shows that there is now significant support for BTC at $23,500, which served as a bounce-off point. Resistance for bitcoin now sits at $24,500, a level that bitcoin has been unable to beat since the crash. BTC price exceeds $24,000 | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Sentiment Remains Positive Crypto market sentiment has not been the best in recent months, but there have been some remarkable recovery over this time. When the market crash happened back in June, sentiment had plunged far into the extreme fear territory, keeping investors from actually making any meaningful moves in the market. However, with the turn in the price of bitcoin, the market sentiment has begun to change. It had grown into the fear territory and is currently sitting at a score of 30 on the Fear & Greed Index. This shows steady sentiment in the market, which is starting to skew more into the positive.

Exchange outflows for last week show that investors are starting to accumulate the coin, especially among smaller investors, with the number of addresses holding at least 1 BTC reaching a new all-time high of 892,803 on Monday. The market sentiment still has a long way to go to move completely out of the fear territory. However, if bitcoin is able to make its mark and break through $25,000, sentiment is expected to turn bullish very quickly.

Dogecoin Unseated From No. 10 Spot In Rankings – Can DOGE Stay Relevant?

Dogecoin (DOGE) has been recently pushed aside by Polkadot (DOT) from the top cryptocurrencies list as it is now the 11th biggest crypto in terms of market cap. DOGE’s market value is currently at $9.28 billion after it sadly had to let go of its position which is now held by Polkadot with a market value of $9.62 billion. According to CoinMarketCap, the DOGE price is 1.09% down or at 0.06899 as of this writing. DOGE price remained the same despite the positive sentiment in the crypto space spiked by the support of Elon Musk, among other things. Michi Lumin, Developer of Dogecoin, has recently announced the release of a C library of DOGE building blocks coined as Libdogecoin. This library allows Dogecoin to integrate into different platforms. Related Reading: TRON (TRX) TVL Accelerates To Nearly $2 Billion Last Month Elon Musk Says DOGE Has Real Value In one of his appearances on the podcast “Full Send”, Elon Musk, billionaire entrepreneur and CEO of Tesla, once again pressed on with his unrelenting support for DOGE.   “I’m mainly supporting Doge, frankly,” Musk said. Musk reiterated that Dogecoin isn’t just a dog meme coin; it is not a joke because it has real utility value. He also said that in comparison to Bitcoin, DOGE has a much bigger transaction volume. Since early August, the price of DOGE hasn’t moved significantly because it’s been hindered by $0.075. The crypto market seems to be in a coma as it is being bombed by a lot of macroeconomic problems. But, as other meme projects have no utility value and the token prices are mostly impacted by social media or a popularity vote from influencers and other celebrities, investors aren’t so sure if they should invest long-term in these dog meme coins. Dogecoin Lags Behind DOGE is lagging behind in terms of growth. At the beginning of July, the DOGE price is at $0.066. SHIB grew by 17% but DOGE price only registered a growth of 1.4%. DOGE token market cap only increased a bit from $8.77 billion to just $9.06 billion. On July 31, DOGE had 73,800 active addresses that grew by as much as 13% or around 105,000 addresses at one point on July 28. DOGE was able to close July with a plunge in transaction volume by 96% or 1.53 DOGE. The social dominance of DOGE increased by 8.49% after the price racked up to $0.75. DOGE price plunged by 61% as social dominance nosedived by 3.3%. DOGE’s social volume further declined by as much as 63%. Developmental transactions within the Dogecoin network grew by 80% despite the lack of ecosystem updates. Related Reading: Shiba Inu Displays Surprising Price Movement – Can SHIB Ditch The Flatline?
