Shiba Inu Fanbase Awaits Eternity Download Event – Will It Boost SHIB Price?

The original release of the blockchain implementation of Shiba Eternity occurred in Australia on September 17. Shiba Inu followed the larger market sell-off that began on September 13 and rallied nearly 7% from September 17-18. During this time span, the rally did not significantly alter market sentiment. New information about the game’s release, though, may add some hype. According to a recent tweet by Shib Rumours, the release date of the game is set for October 1. However, the latest post on the official Shiba Inu Twitter account indicates that the worldwide launch of the game will take place on October 6. SHIB has a current trading range of $0.00001073 – 0.00001154. Could the meme coin see a resurgence after the game’s release? Related Reading: Uniswap Could Slide Below Support Zone – No Demand For UNI This Week? Shiba Inu: Increasing Speed After the latest sell-off on September 18, an uptrend has been noted and has been very consistent up to the time of writing. Given that this occurred only a day after the Australia release, it’s likely that long-term token holders witnessed the price increase and sold off their holdings. During this period, the memecoin saw a pullback and plummeted 8.5% immediately. Currently, the recent price movements have created a head and shoulders pattern before to today’s breakout. During this breakout, the price increased by 2.9% Given the current state of Shiba Eternity, this price movement can be regarded as a sign of increased anticipation for the game’s October 6 release. ETH whales are also contributing to the hype train. According to WhaleStats, the top 1,000 Ethereum whales have more than $147.5 million. WhaleStats also regarded Shiba Inu as the token with the highest dollar value position. Related Reading: ApeCoin Performance Could Attract The Whales – How About The Bulls? Keeping A Close Eye On The Market Therefore, there are a few things that future Shiba Inu players and investors/traders should be aware of. One of these is that a price increase is frequently followed by a severe market correction, similar to what we experienced on September 18 following the rally on September 17. As of this writing, SHIB is trading at $$0.00001137, up 2.5 percent in the last seven days, data from Coingecko show, Saturday. As October 6 approaches, we will have a better sense of whether Shiba Inu will increase in value or decline further.

Solana (SOL) Holds Its Gains While Most Coins Bleed

Solana (SOL) has managed to keep most of its gains over the past 48 hours while most coins bled out. The token started yesterday, September 29th, at $33.25, going as high as $34.34 at midday. Solana (SOL) suffered a loss in value on September 28th, when it dropped from $32.85 to $31.74. However, it quickly recovered before the end of the trading day and has been steadily increasing since then. The Price of SOL currently sits at $33.72 at the time of writing. Related Reading: Trade Activity Shows Ethereum Whales Are Seeking Refuge In Stablecoins SOL Holding On For Dear Life The past few days have seen most coins in the top 100 drop in value by more than 10%. SOL is one of the few tokens that have held its ground during this time. The coin price was off to a rocky start, entering the new week at $32.1. At a point, it seemed like it would rally up to $40 when it reached $35.02 on Tuesday, the 27th. However, the run was short-lived as it fell to $31.77 the next day. Later, the token left investors smiling as it slowly galloped back up to $34.34 the next day, September 29th. So far, it has kept a decent amount of profit for itself and is currently sitting at $33.89. Gains Amidst Troubled Waters SOL’s performance is nothing short of impressive, considering how volatile the market has been for other tokens.  It seems like there are no signs of slowing down anytime soon, either, with the coin still holding strong at above $33. SOL’s price stays modestly above a crucial support level of $30, which serves as a good buying zone for traders. For SOL to trend upward, the price must break over $35, its weekly resistance. If the price of SOL breaks and remains over $35, it might significantly rise to the $45-$58 range. Historically, SOL pricing has found breaking out of this range tough. Based on its performance in the last three months, it’s likely that SOL will likely continue to climb higher. Some people are already predicting the token to go up to $41. An analyst on TradingView noted that a move in the US market could be a catalyst for SOL to reach the $35 mark. Social Engagement And NFTs Might Just Be What SOL Needs The past week has been an eventful one for Solana on social media. According to a recent tweet by PHOENIX, Solana was the best-performing project in terms of social activity. The token had a total of 35,100 mentions and 58.3 million engagements across social media platforms.  Related Reading: Uniswap Could Slide Below Support Zone – No Demand For UNI This Week? But that’s not all. Statistics from Delphi Digital show an increase in Solana’s share of NFT trading volume. According to the tweet, Solana’s NFT volume increased from 7% to 24% in the past six weeks. This gained traction in the NFT sector can help push SOL beyond its resistance and into new heights.

Bitcoin Slowly Trends Upwards Into $20,000, Will The Monthly Candle Turn Green?

Bitcoin has seen some profits over today’s trading session as September’s monthly candle is coming to an end. Market participants were expecting a tight battle between bullish and bearish forces, but the cryptocurrency has been moving sideways with slight upward pressure. Related Reading: Trade Activity Shows Ethereum Whales Are Seeking Refuge In Stablecoins At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) trades at $19,700 with a 2% and 1% profit over the last 24 hours and 7 days. Other cryptocurrencies in the crypto top 10 by market cap are displaying similar price action, but BTC seems to be leading the low timeframe bullish momentum. People Buy Bitcoin To Hedge Against Their Currencies Downside Trend? Data from Material Indicators shows that investors with buying orders from $1,000 to $10,000 bought into Bitcoin’s recent price action while other investors sold their coins. In that sense, a rally into the monthly close seems unlikely. However, Material Indicators also show that ask (sell) liquidity has been decreasing as Bitcoin is rejected from the area of around $20,000. If the price can resume its bullish momentum and can gain more support from larger buyers, bears might be unable to defend $20,000. This might lead BTC to higher levels, and possibly for a reclaim of the levels around $26,000, according to a report from NewsBTC. The cryptocurrency must flip $20,100 into support, analyst from Material Indicators wrote the following about BTC odds as the market heads into the monthly close: There are short term signs of a potential pump, but the crossing of key moving averages suggests the broader trend will continue down. Resist the urge to overtrade or FOMO in. Additional data provided by research firm Messari picked a spike in buying pressure from investors in the Eurozone and the United Kingdom (UK). This pressure is related to a decline in the value of their currencies as the U.S. dollar rallied to a multi-decade high. The New Narrative, Will The Fed Pivot Leading Bitcoin To New Highs? This data from Messari has been put into question by several users. Regardless of its legitimacy, this data speaks about an increasing trend in the sector: more and more market participants are highlighting the impact of central banks in the financial sector and the global economy. According to a report from Charles Gasparino, a reporter for FOX Business, members of the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) are aware of the negative consequences of their monetary policy. They have brought a steep downside pressure for equities and risk-on assets, such as Bitcoin. SCOOP (1/2): @federalreserve officials getting increasingly worried about “financial stability” as opposed to inflation as higher rates begin to crush bonds, several big investors tell me.

If the pressure inside the Fed becomes too high, the financial institution might pivot its measures, and provide some room for a relief rally across the board. Speaking on this possibility, and on why Bitcoin has been showing strength relative to legacy financial assets, analyst William Clemente said: In theory: People front-running expected CB (Central Banks) pivot by buying BTC -> Perceived BTC “safe haven” flows -> Reflexive response from other market participants? Not my base case but non-zero possibility that my mind is open to.

Uniswap Could Slide Below Support Zone – No Demand For UNI This Week?

On Thursday, the $6.7 price range of Uniswap was rebuffed once again. The momentum has slowed on the shorter time frames, which is a bearish indicator for traders and investors. It’s possible that the recent decline in Bitcoin’s value is responsible for UNI’s lag. Statistics show that there is a moderately high relationship between UNI and Bitcoin. Recent price changes for both coins show a strong correlation between them. UNI has been closely following Bitcoin’s price action. As the bearish slump in Uniswap continues into its second day, the currency pair may be retracing its recent gains. As of this writing, UNI is trading at $6.45, up 12% in the last seven days, data from Coingecko show, Friday. Related Reading: ApeCoin Performance Could Attract The Whales – How About The Bulls? Uniswap Indicator: Bearish UNI fell to a closing price of $6.379 yesterday, 7.62% lower than its September 28 closing price of $6.555. Price action in the past is also suggestive of a developing bearish momentum. The momentum indicator is at a bearish low at the moment. Daily and 4-hourly trends tell the same pattern as well. The amount of UNI currency on hand is at an all-time high, per CryptoQuant statistics. Foreign exchange reserves on the rise portend worse conditions. As of this writing, daily UNI transaction volume in the shorter time frames from September 27 to now has been volatile. During this time range on September 27, UNI rallied and tested the $6.7 resistance level. This price trend mirrored that of Bitcoin. Although demand for UNI is not very great, both BTC and UNI are currently exhibiting indications of recovery. A Retreat, Or Advance? A recent research predicted that UNI would decline to $5.50, a volatile region that might spark a bigger sell-off in the crypto. A decline of this nature could prompt investors and purchasers to acquire a position inside the aforementioned price range, restoring the currency to its current value. However, UNI’s technological aspects are relatively neutral. On the charts, this appears as a near-stabilization of the price, which is supported by the 38.20 Fibonacci level. This neutrality of the technical indicators and the relatively stable price range can assist the bulls in gaining strength for a breakout. However, UNI has struggled to surpass the $6.49 level of resistance. A breach of this resistance might initiate a gradual rally toward the $6.7 price level. As the price trend wanes, UNI has a same chance of falling to $5.5 or rising to $6.7.

Chainlink (LINK) And Cronos (CRO) Post Positive Moves Amidst Market Uncertainty

Chainlink (LINK) and Cronos (CRO) have recently enjoyed positive price movements, despite the market’s uncertainty over cryptocurrencies. Both tokens increased around15% from their low point 7 days back. The recent gains show that LINK and CRO are still holding strong as they continue to rank top 50 based on market cap. The two tokens also maintained a high trading volume throughout the last seven days. Related Reading: Bitcoin And The Golden Ratio Bottom | BTCUSD Analysis September 29, 2022 Upward Trends Amidst Market Uncertainty The entire crypto market still suffers from the recent bearish trend. However, LINK and CRO managed to maintain an upward movement amid investors’ concerns about the future of cryptocurrency markets. In fact, LINK has been one of the best-performing altcoins this week. It gained over 21% since last Thursday, reaching a high of $8.46 yesterday. This is not surprising considering the token’s performance in the last 30 days. LINK was able to gain around 16% this month alone. We can’t say the same for CRONOS’ 30-day performance. However, it did manage to move upwards by 16.9% during the past seven days. Its current value stands at $0.110, which is up from its lowest point of $0.105. Reasons For LINK’s Positive Moves A recent tweet from Santiment suggested that many investors opted to unload LINK holdings they purchased during a price drop. Yesterday, LINK reached a local high of $8.46, providing an opportunity for several market participants to benefit. The number of LINK transactions was four times higher than expected, according to the Santiment analytics team.  In another tweet from Santiment, LINK stakeholder activity peaked on September 28. Despite the general bearishness in the cryptocurrency market, this helped LINK break the $8 threshold and begin a period of growth. The increase led Santiment analysts to conclude that LINK has been “decoupling” from other cryptos in the last 10 days. The coin’s price, however, was unable to maintain the new high. According to CoinMarketCap, LINK has dropped over 0.22% in the last 24 hours to $7.89 at the time of writing. Social Engagement Responsible For CRO’s Rise The recent week was a breakthrough one for CRO. According to statistics from the cryptocurrency social analytics company LunarCrush, the altcoin ranked 26th in terms of market capitalization. The previous week has also seen a surge in CROs’ social engagement. As of September 23rd, its total number of social media mentions had risen by 40% to 37,000. Also, the value of CRO’s social engagements went up by 14% over that time, reaching $61.6 million. The alt’s price rose by 13% as of September 23rd, according to LunarCrush, because of the increased interest in it on social media.  Related Reading: Bitcoin Sees Massive Decline In On-Chain Activity This past week saw a 1% decrease in the average seven-day supply of CRO on exchanges. To investors’ relief, this trend swung in their favor as an uptick in the indicator would’ve signaled a rise in selling pressure. As of the time of writing, CRO has gained 3.16% in value over the previous week, as measured by volume traded on CoinMarketCap. Featured image from Pixabay and chart from TradingView.com

Bitcoin (BTC) Price To Reach In Millions By 2030, Says Analyst

A well-known, conservative crypto analyst gave a bullish commentary about the price of Bitcoin. According to a YouTuber, further proliferation of the digital asset will cause a steady rise of BTC to a million dollars. On a YouTube video, InvestAnswers signaled that BTC is approaching diminishing returns. Diminishing return is when an asset gets to a point where increased future investment yields less profit. The crypto analyst said that BTC yields investors five times less profit every new market cycle in comparison to the previous one.  Related Reading: Bitcoin Price Crashes To $19,000, But Stays Strong Against Other Assets Bitcoin Primed To Trade For Millions Of Dollars By The Year 2030 However, the analysts gave a different view on bitcoin that was in contrast with the apparent diminishing return of the digital asset. They cited that the value of networks grows as the number of participants increases, according to Metcalfe’s law.  If Bitcoin follows the trend of disruptive networks like cellphones and the internet, applying Metcalfe’s law projects a bullish case scenario for bitcoin. In that vein, a modest consideration of BTC’s future price will put it at over a million dollars by the year 2030.  The host made it clear that this prediction was strictly based on the scientific possibility that Metcalfe’s law holds for the number one cryptocurrency in the world. It is, however, not subject to wishful thinking. According to the analyst, the bitcoin digital assets’ adoption follows the historical patterns of preceding technologies.  Quite like InvestAnswers, there have been several sightings of multiple users across the internet, supporting the future appreciation of bitcoin’s price.  Crypto Market Cycles  Since speculation says bitcoin is still bullish in the long run, many are looking forward to taking advantage of the next market cycle.  The market cycle explains the ebb and flow of a market. Usually, new markets have a slow start. They pick off from a point where people show little or no interest. But as interest in the asset starts to increase, demand rises, and its price starts to inflate as a result. A complete market cycle has four phases: accumulation, markup, distribution, and markdown.  Related Reading: Do Kwon Statement: A Possible Trigger For Terra Tokens Price Surge As mounting interest takes the price of the commodity to new highs, it gets to a point where it eventually peaks. Investors become satisfied with their returns. And then sell off the asset causing tremendous sell pressure. Therefore, the price begins to drop. After one market cycle ends, the next begins shortly. Bitcoin Price Action  Bitcoin has roughly ranged between $22,000 and $18,000 for most of the 3rd quarter of this year. Investors are keenly eyeing the condition of the broader market as a go-ahead to pump funds into risky assets like bitcoin. Featured image from Pixabay and chart from TradingView.com

The price of BNB is still above a critical support level of $270, which acts as a good demand zone for buy orders.

China Reports GPU Price Fall To All-Time Low Post Ethereum Merge

The successful Ethereum upgrade to proof-of-stake consensus is receiving more backlashes from the market. Therefore, the Ethereum upgrade should produce only positive feedback, but where there are merits, demerits must exist. One of the aftermath challenges the industry faced since the Ethereum upgrade was the drop in GPU prices. Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) in crypto mining increased over the years because they proved very efficient. Related Reading: TA: Ethereum Price Needs To Clear $1,400 For Hopes of a Fresh Rally GPU companies were earning huge profits due to the increased demand from ETH miners. However, it is no longer so, as the price of GPUs has dropped drastically over the past three months. Furthermore, the prices of GPUs dropped further after the upgrade. Is Ethereum Merge Major Cause Of GPU price Crash? South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported that GPU prices in China dropped to the lowest due to the Ethereum merge. ETH mining has reduced. So miners’ demand for GPU went low. Miners’ demands for expensive cards such as GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 became low and caused a reduction in price to trice the factory prices. Also, due to the China mining ban and COVID lockdown, the demand for costly GPUs fell and worsened during the bear market. A Shanghai trader, Peng, told SCMP that RTX 3080 dropped by over 37% in the last three months. According to Peng, the price of RTX 3080 went from 8000 yuan ($1,140) to less than 5000 yuan (%712). Peng attributed the drop in the price of GPUs to the poor condition of the crypto market. Ethereum mining was one of the highest contributors to the high demand for GPUs in the past years. Traders noticed a slump in GPU prices as the Ethereum merge drew near. SCMP reported that retailers at ‘Buy Now,’ a large electronics market in Shanghai, are experiencing low GPU demand. Retailers Lower GPU Prices Chinese retailers reduced factory-suggested GPU prices by over 33% in a few weeks to sell their equipment. The reason for this is the crypto bear market and GPU correction market. According to data from Baidu, traders are losing the selling price compared to the factory cost of GPUs. Analysts estimated that the average price drop of GPUs per week is about 10%. Some reports show that NVIDIA, a large GPU manufacturer, is reducing the price of their GPU for board partners. This report is still unconfirmed, but it would likely cause further reduction in the coming weeks. Although the crash in GPU prices may adversely affect many businesses, others think it marks the end of two years of nightmare. Many GPU retailers would previously raise the prices as high as possible because of the high demand by miners.
