APENFT Announces Strategic Partnership With BAYCTron; Tron’s Justin Sun Follows Closely

After its highly anticipated marketplace launch, Bored Ape Yacht Club Tron and APENFT Foundation joined forces through a strategic partnership meant to incentivize further the development of promising NFT works on the Tron ecosystem.

This collaboration arrives as BAYCTron kicks off its Mutant Apes minting campaign. A series of 15,000 primate-inspired collectibles have been put up for sale following a stunningly fast minting of 10,000 unique artworks earlier this month.

With its first collection, Bored Ape Yacht Club Tron supported by Palmar Labs placed itself among the fastest-selling collections on Tron network, only second to Tronmeebits.

“Counting on the support of APENFT Foundation means a great deal for us. I believe anyone who’s been following the development of the NFT landscape on Tron knows that APENFT has done a great job at identifying the best projects out there, such as Tpunks or Tronmeebits. Now, our unique apes are part of that well-curated selection of artworks,” said Carolina Matusso, CMO at BAYCTron.

The APENFT Foundation is a curotial project focused on registering world-class artworks as NFTs on blockchain. With a team comprised of leading experts from Christie’s and Sotheby’s, the foundation has managed to get hold of truly distinctive NFT pieces by Pablo Picasso and crypto artists Beeple and Pak worth over $30 million.

When referring to BAYCTron, APENFT wrote on Twitter: “It’s the first support object since APENFT announced the establishment of NFT Special Fund.” According to the company, the $100 million fund was created to “invest in and support quality projects in fields including NFT, GameFi and Metaverse.” In a recent press statement, APENFT also confirmed that it will provide active assistance to these supported projects in the areas of marketing and strategic product development.

Shortly after the official announcement, Tron founder and CEO of BitTorrent, Justin Sun, shared the news with his 3+ million Twitter followers. The Chinese American entrepreneur has been actively showing support for the biggest NFT projects on Tron network, such as Tpunks and Tron Meebits, and now Bored Ape Yacht Club Tron. Earlier this year, the tycoon has purchased Joker-themed Tpunk for a whopping $10.5 million.

As of this writing, BAYCTron holds firmly within the Top 3 most popular NFT projects on Tron network by the number of holders, leaving far behind the previously mentioned art players.

As formerly reported, BAYCTron holders now have a live marketplace to list, buy, and sell their beloved apes. And as of this week, Bored Ape fans can also benefit from bidding functionality, which unleashes the ‘true fun’ for marketplace adepts.

While more NFT artists and collections are added to Tron, Bored Apes continues to make noise with its Mutants collection. Just as in the first series, the minting cost is fixed at 1000 TRX with the possibility to execute the operation both from web browsers or mobiles. While this might not seem like a ‘big thing’, paying attention to the user experience can be a rewarding choice in a sometimes very dry crypto sphere.

Ripple XRP XRPUSDT

XRP seems to be reacting to the general trend in the market as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies in the top 10 by market cap trend to the downside. As NewsBTC has reported, the derivatives sector has been heating up due to the recent rise in the aforementioned coins.

Historically, this has taken a toll on the bullish momentum built by the bulls. In the case of XRP, it’s a positive sign that it has been able to sustain gains in higher timeframes.

The sentiment around XRP has flipped bullish since Ripple has been able to sustain and push back against the U.S. SEC in their case for the alleged sales of a security.

In addition, the payment corridors, one of the most important use cases for the XRPL Ledger and its native token, are recovering. These entities use Ripple’s payment solution On-Demand Liquidity (ODL), based on XRP, and were negatively impacted after the SEC filed for their legal action.

The Liquidity Index Bot, an ODL payment corridors monitor, records an increase in the daily volume for these entities. As seen below, the XRP/AUD payment corridors show some recovery after it went negative in May 2021.

Other payment corridors record a similar or a more significant increase. Since they are based on ODL, the volume registered by these entities is indicative of the levels of adoption for XRP and suggests the token is experiencing a re-surge in demand.

XRP Debuts In MENA Region, Ripple Enable More Adoption

In the coming months, the demand for the token could continue to surge as the payment solution company recently announced a partnership with Pyypl. The partners will launch a new payment corridor in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Data shared by the payment company reveals that the MENA region saw $78 billion in remittances in 2020 alone. Thus, why the partnership could onboard millions to the XRPL Ledger and ODL as countries such as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia “shift to digital” payment methods.

The collaboration will start in the UAE to bring low-cost and instant remittances for people living in and outside the MENA region. Ripple claimed the following about the potential for the partnership:

This announcement builds on Ripple’s already growing presence in the region (…). All of this is driving a record year for Ripple in MENA, with RippleNet already logging four times the transaction volume year-to-date versus all of 2020.

Polygon (Matic) Prices All set to Create New ATH, Prices Around $2 Level

Polygon (Matic) Prices All set to Create New ATH, Prices Around $2 Level
  • Traders may attempt to exit long positions when Polygon is near $2.
  • A big closing over $1.87 would entice investors, alleviating selling pressure.

Polygon’s native token, MATIC, looks to be catching up with the market. By all indicators, prices may be on their way to a new all-time high. Likewise, the Polygon has broken past major resistance and is poised to hit new highs.

MATIC Price has risen over 22% in the previous four days, signaling positive momentum. Prices have climbed lately from $1.52 on October 23 to $1.86. The cryptocurrency is now trading at $1.8370, up 10.33% in the past 24 hours. $MATIC has a year-to-date ROI of +10337 percent.

For confirmation, measure the distance between the initial swing peak and the low swing peak, then multiply by $1.73 (breakout point) to arrive at a $4.32 target.

Before retesting the ATH at $2.70, Polygon will have to overcome two significant roadblocks at $2.04 and $2.22. If MATIC overcomes these challenges, it will reach $4.32. Traders may attempt to exit long positions when Polygon is near $2. Unfortunately, that might halt the upswing and prevent MATIC from breaking past that barrier and realizing its upside potential.

The IOMAP graphic above shows the Bulls winning. At $2, just 1,280 addresses have acquired over 35.5 million MATIC. Polygon’s primary support level is $1.75.

With daily addresses increasing over the previous three months, the main spike is on its way. In addition, it seems that more cash and investors are entering the market, as the 7-day MA for active wallets has increased. To date, approximately 92 percent of all $MATIC addresses are profitable, according to ITB statistics.

The GIOM model predicts that Polygon has a single resistance at $1.87. Approximately 17.54 thousand crypto addresses bought 135 million tokens. A big closing over $1.87 would so entice investors, alleviating selling pressure. On the other hand, MATIC may so easily expand its surges. The alt will then skyrocket to $2.7 or more.

MATIC has risen by over 30% so far in October, and now, according to a Reddit debate, MATIC has handled 1 Billion transactions on the Polygon PoS chain.

Helium (HNT), Cosmos (ATOM), Holo (HOT) -All Set to Create New ATH!

Helium (HNT), Cosmos (ATOM), Holo (HOT) -All Set to Create New ATH!
  • HNT’s recent alliance with Dish Network has been a big impetus for price activity. 
  • ATOM might hit a new ATH of roughly $47.586.

After achieving fresh ATHs, Bitcoin and Ethereum seem to be out of breath. However, the market is buoyant as numerous cryptocurrencies post double-digit gains, and the star crypto gains support of approximately $60,000. Recent gains in Helium (HNT), Cosmos (ATOM), and Holo (HOT) are notable.

A crypto metric site named Santiment just published the growth of the above cryptocurrencies. The analytics tool shows a huge increase in market value for Helium, Cosmos, and Holo. Here are some price targets for these cryptocurrencies.

Helium (HNT)

Helium (HNT) is a blockchain-based platform for IoT utilities. On Tuesday, the primary altcoin nearly missed the $26.31 ATH. However, the HNT price has been consolidating around $24.15. The 4-hour chart continues to show a battle between buyers and sellers.

If enough buyers step in, the cryptocurrency might gain another 10% to 15% after regaining the prior ATH. On the other hand, if bears seize control of the market, HNT’s price might fall below $20.

However, the HNT’s recent alliance with Dish Network has been a big impetus for price activity. Traders may use compatible Helium 5g Hotspots on Dish Network to earn HNT tokens.

Cosmos (ATOM)

Cosmos (ATOM), a decentralized network that improves interoperability and scalability, has gained 10% in 24 hours. Trading volume increased by approximately 300 percent in hours. The price of ATOM has been steadily declining since reaching its previous ATH of $44.70. On the 4-hour chart, sellers outnumber purchasers.

Currently trading at $39.50, a sell-off may send ATOM down to $36.74 if it persists. The RSI value of 60.8 also implies a good consolidation period. If a large number of buyers come in during the next several hours, ATOM might hit a new ATH of roughly $47.586.

Holochain (HOT)

Holochain (HOT) is a peer-to-peer network that has recently gained considerable media attention. Huge green candles on the 4-hour chart indicate an enormous increase in investment. Recent ecosystem events have pushed the price back to September highs of $0.0125. Following large purchase orders a few hours earlier, the cryptocurrency is undergoing a little correction with hefty sell-offs.

The price of Holochain (HOT) is projected to drop around $0.0095. The RSI element is green. Thus the HOT price might surpass the September high of $0.0135. As of early this week, Bitcoin dominance has declined, signaling capital leakage to rival cryptocurrencies. Moreover, the recent increase in these cryptocurrencies’ market cap confirms the start of Altseason.
