  • dYdX provided over $4.3 billion worth of trades.
  • The trading volume of dYdX has gained by 19,700% over the past 6 months.

dYdX, a popular derivatives decentralized exchange has seen a tremendous gain in trade activity. The derivative DEX surrounding a renewed Chinese crypto crackdown has circulated this year. For the first time generating more volume than Coinbase’s spot markets.

Cryptocurrencies are not authorized and cannot be used as currency in the market, stated by the people’s Bank of China. On Sunday, in a tweet Colin Wu reported of China-based crypto has mentioned, a recent gain in demand for decentralized exchanges (DEX) and other decentralized finance (DeFi) products among Chinese users.

Furthermore, in June the largest crypto exchange Huobi Global has prohibited domestic derivative tradings. And also shut down its China-based exchange operator as compulsion from Beijing derived before stopping all new registrations for Chinese users on Friday.

Henceforth, according to CoinGecko, in late April the trade volume of dYdX has just remained $22 million but for the past 6 months, it has tremendously gained by 19,700% concerning daily exchange trade volumes.

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.

Greed Spikes To Seven-Month High Alongside Record Crypto Prices

Published

on

Crypto Greed

Data shows greed in the crypto market has spiked to seven-month highs as coins record new all-time highs (ATHs).

Crypto Fear And Greed Index Points At Extreme Greed

As per the latest weekly report from Arcane Research, the fear and greed index has recorded seven-month highs as the needle points at extreme greed.

The “fear and greed index” is an indicator that represents the general sentiment of the crypto market on a numeric scale that goes from 0 to 100.

When the metric has values below 50, it means there is, on average, fear among investors. Values lower than 25 denote extreme fear. Such a sentiment is usually seen after big corrections, and periods of extreme fear may prove to be good buying opportunities.

While the needle pointing above 50 means the crypto market is starting to get greedy. Extreme greed occurs when values exceed 75. Very high values near 100 may mean there will be a correction soon so investors may not buy more at this point.

Here is a meter that shows what the current market sentiment is:

As the above meter shows, the crypto market looks to be extremely greedy right now as the value of the indicator stands at 76.

Comparison with last week’s and last month’s values is also given below the meter, which were 75 (extreme greed) and 27 (fear), respectively.

The below chart gives a better idea about how the current fear and greed index values compare with those of the past:

On examining the above graph, it becomes apparent that the fear and greed index reached values of 84 this week, the highest in the last seven months.

This peak was made just a day after Bitcoin made its new ATH of around $67k, but shortly following that the price had a correction. The below chart shows this trend in BTC’s price:

The fear and greed index also took a hit in response to this decline in Bitcoin’s price, but nonetheless, values still remain in the extreme greed category, which means the crypto market still expects prices to go higher.

During the rally earlier in the year, values consistently remained in the extreme greed category, and corrections only caused temporary declines in the indicator.

This means that if the market has to continue making newer ATHs, the market sentiment should remain greedy, otherwise the bull run might start losing steam
