What else is transferring as Bitcoin value inches towards a brand new ATH?


Bitcoin (BTC) is sizzling and clearly within the arms of bulls. Sure, ultimately an ETF is coming and after {that a} $100,000, no $120,000, scratch that, $150,000 BTC value will likely be on the board. 

Blah, blah, blah.

Anybody logging onto crypto Twitter goes to be bombarded with all this bullish drivel straight from the bounce and that nice, we’re all pleased Bitcoin is doing properly. I have been a holder since early 2016 so after all I’m pleased. However, isn’t there extra to crypto than simply Bitcoin? Aren’t there different property which can be transferring?

Wouldn’t or not it’s good to listen to about them earlier than they go on some parabolic 150% run after which your favourite anon Twitter dealer with a Rolex and an Audi advises you on which assist ranges to purchase on the following pullback?

Let’s take a fast take a look at a number of the different property that could be on the verge of a transfer. After all, this isn’t monetary recommendation. DYOR. Simply because we’ve lined it doesn’t imply it’s really going to do one thing, so don’t troll us if the costs keep flat or should you lose cash.


Axie Infinity has actually been blazing a path all yr lengthy and from the look of issues the play-to-earn blockchain gaming sector is poised for additional progress and Axies’s metrics, together with its AXS token, look nice.

The platform not too long ago rolled out AXS staking and previous to that the workforce dolled out a completely huge airdrop on early customers.

Sadly for some, as AXS went up, SLP, (the in sport foreign money used to pay customers and purchase gadgets inside the sport) has gone down. I imply, actually down. Right down to the extent that distinguished and comparatively anon crypto-Twitter merchants at the moment are calling a backside.

The day by day chart reveals SLP buying and selling just about at its finish of Could low at $0.06 and for a lot of merchants, the market construction suggests the asset has reached a backside. Final week, the value did try some restoration as much as $0.10 however then failed to carry the momentum and ultimately fell again into the present vary.

One factor that caught my consideration is the rise in buying and selling quantity, which is a potential signal of accumulation.

Bag holders are hopeful that Axie Infinity will ultimately redefine the usage of SLP or curb its inflation with a purpose to broaden its utility and drive demand, however in the meanwhile there are not any guarantees.

Technical evaluation lovers will level out that SLP at present meets resistance on the 50-day transferring common and that the altcoin has flipped the 20-day transferring common to assist. One can even see an ‘eventual’ convergence between the 20-MA and 50-MA if consumers proceed to bid the value greater. These merchants would additionally level out that the MACD and RSI on the day by day time-frame every look promising.

At this stage, it seems that SLP is making an attempt to interrupt out of its downtrend however from a risk-to-reward perspective, opening a place nonetheless presents threat provided that the swing low is greater than 20% away from the present value.

Danger-averse merchants would possibly take into account ready for additional affirmation of a development reversal. One thing like a day by day shut above the 50-MA and some greater excessive candlesticks above the $0.10 stage would possibly sign that AXS is gaining momentum.


Alchemix is one other “seems to be prefer it might need bottomed” altcoin and up to date developments surrounding the venture might be an indication of strengthening fundamentals. On the finish of October, the venture was voted by Tokemak (TOKE) holders to be one of many property added to the platform’s liquidity swimming pools referred to as ‘reactors’.

Tokemak claims to be “a protocol that permits sustainable DeFi liquidity” and so they framed the present drawback DeFi has by saying:

“Protocols have a tough time coordinating customers to pool liquidity throughout exchanges. They’ll incentivize customers by excessive APY inflationary means (liquidity mining), however that is inefficient and intensely costly.”

Reactors are successfully single-sided liquidity swimming pools the place initiatives and customers place their tokens and TOKE holders vote on the place the liquidity is directed. The intention is to “permit protocols to retain management over the place liquidity goes, moderately than having to incentivize customers vai emission” and this single-sided staking means LPs stake an asset and the liquidity administrators stake TOKE and stakers obtain TOKE rewards.

How is that this related to ALCX?

Properly, TOKE has carried out amazingly properly since its IDO and the liquidity swimming pools have been fairly in style and steady. There’s excessive curiosity and demand for TOKE, and the truth that ALCX was chosen from 42 different initiatives to have a liquidity pool means holders are trying ahead to staking and receiving TOKE.

Alchemix was additionally chosen as a part of Olympus DAO’s “Olympus Professional” product which bears some similarities to Tokemak. The platform goals to forestall the mercenary capital state of affairs by permitting “protocols to build up liquidity to safe longevity and value stability for everybody concerned.”

Cointelegraph not too long ago defined how vesting bonds over a set interval of days is helpful to the bond holder and the protocol. The picture beneath provides a fairly easy rundown.

On Oct. 8 the workforce at Alchemix introduced plans for an v2 improve of its platform and likewise prompt that its “self-repaying loans” can be extra comprehensible to the general public. The venture additionally intends to open up the potential makes use of for collateral in order that customers can train numerous “credit score delegation” choices, as a substitute of simply utilizing curiosity to pay the mortgage.

Sometimes, protocol upgrades and mainnet launches are bullish occasions for the native token however what makes ALCX’s fundamentals look juicy is the token’s cross-integration with different protocols which can be performing properly.

On Oct. 13 OHM value rallied inside a hair of its all-time excessive and since launching Olympus Professional, integrating with Tokemak, saying plans to launch on Arbitrum, and having integration and charge kickbacks from DeFi platforms like Wonderland Cash and Abracadabra, the bullish sentiment surrounding OlympusDAO has surged.

From a technical evaluation perspective, ALCX remains to be “consolidating” and other than the current excessive quantity surges, it seems to be in an “accumulation part” moderately than a “bottoming part”.

Like SLP, a day by day shut with a couple of greater highs above the $490 stage can be an encouraging signal of a development reversal. The excessive quantity nodes on the VPVR indicator additionally point out that there’s resistance within the present $400 to $480 vary and a break above this stage may see the value rapidly advance to $700.

Further positives that trace at growing bullish momentum embrace consecutive day by day closes above the 20-day and 50-day transferring averages, together with impending convergence between the transferring averages.

ALCX’s integration with Olympus DAO, Tokemak, the upcoming v2 improve, the venture’s bounce again from its current $4 million exploit and the token’s “accumulation part” seen on the day by day chart are additionally potential indicators that the asset might be on the verge of a development change.
