What else is moving as Bitcoin price inches toward a new ATH?

Bitcoin (BTC) is sizzling and clearly within the arms of bulls. Yes, ultimately an exchange-traded fund (ETF) is coming and after that a $100,000, no $120,000, scratch that, $150,000 BTC price will probably be on the board. 

Blah, blah, blah.

Anyone logging onto crypto Twitter is going to be bombarded with all this bullish drivel straight from the leap and that is nice, we’re all glad Bitcoin is doing nicely. I’ve been a holder since early 2016 so after all, I’m glad. But, isn’t there extra to crypto than simply Bitcoin? Aren’t there different property which are moving?

Wouldn’t 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 help ranges to purchase on the subsequent pullback?

Let’s take a fast take a look at a few of the different property that is perhaps on the verge of a transfer. Of course, this isn’t monetary recommendation. DYOR. Just as a result of 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 in the event 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 development and Axies’s metrics, together with its AXS token, look nice.

The platform lately rolled out AXS staking and previous to that, the crew dolled out a completely huge airdrop on early customers.

Sadly for some, as AXS went up, SLP, (the in-game foreign money used to pay customers and purchase gadgets throughout the recreation) has gone down. I imply, actually down. Down to the extent that outstanding and comparatively anon crypto-Twitter merchants are actually calling a backside.

The each day chart reveals SLP buying and selling just about at its finish of May low at $0.06 and for a lot of merchants, the market construction suggests the asset has reached a backside. Last week, the price 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 attainable signal of accumulation.

Bag holders are hopeful that Axie Infinity will ultimately redefine using SLP or curb its inflation to broaden its utility and drive demand, however for the time being there are not any guarantees.

Technical evaluation lovers will level out that SLP presently meets resistance on the 50-day moving common (MA) and that the altcoin has flipped the 20-day moving common to help. One also can see an ‘eventual’ convergence between the 20-MA and 50-MA if consumers proceed to bid the price increased. These merchants would additionally level out that the moving common convergence/divergence indicator (MACD) and relative energy index (RSI) on the each day time-frame every look promising.

At this stage, it seems that SLP is trying 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 price.

Risk-averse merchants may contemplate ready for additional affirmation of a pattern reversal. Something like a each day shut above the 50-MA and a few increased excessive candlesticks above the $0.10 degree may sign that AXS is gaining momentum.


Alchemix is one other “looks like it might have bottomed” altcoin and up to date developments surrounding the venture might be a signal of strengthening fundamentals. At the top 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 enables sustainable DeFi liquidity” they usually framed the present drawback DeFi has by saying:

“Protocols have a difficult time coordinating users to pool liquidity across exchanges. They can incentivize users through high APY inflationary means (liquidity mining), but this is inefficient and extremely expensive.”

Effectively, reactors are single-sided liquidity swimming pools the place tasks and customers place their tokens and TOKE holders vote on the place the liquidity is directed. The goal is to “allow protocols to retain control over where liquidity goes, rather than having to incentivize users via emission” and this single-sided staking means LPs stake an asset and the liquidity administrators stake TOKE and stakers obtain TOKE rewards.

How is this related to ALCX?

Well, TOKE has achieved amazingly nicely since its preliminary DEX providing (IDO) and the liquidity swimming pools have been fairly fashionable and secure. There’s excessive curiosity and demand for TOKE, and the truth that ALCX was chosen from 42 different tasks 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 Pro” product, which bears some similarities to Tokemak. The platform goals to forestall the mercenary capital state of affairs by permitting “protocols to accumulate liquidity to secure longevity and price stability for everyone involved.”

Cointelegraph lately defined how vesting bonds over a set interval of days is helpful to the bondholder and the protocol. The picture beneath offers a fairly simple rundown.

On Oct. 8, the crew at Alchemix introduced plans for a v2 improve of its platform and likewise advised 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 delegation” choices, as a substitute of simply utilizing curiosity to pay the mortgage.

Typically, 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 are performing nicely.

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

From a technical evaluation perspective, ALCX is nonetheless “consolidating” and except for the current excessive quantity surges, it seems to be in an “accumulation phase” fairly than a “bottoming phase.”

Like SLP, a each day shut with a few increased highs above the $490 degree can be an encouraging signal of a pattern reversal. The excessive quantity nodes on the amount profile seen vary (VPVR) indicator additionally point out that there is resistance within the present $400 to $480 vary and a break above this degree may see the price rapidly advance to $700.

Additional positives that trace at rising bullish momentum embrace consecutive each day closes above the 20-day and 50-day moving averages, together with impending convergence between the moving 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 phase” seen on the each day chart are additionally attainable indicators that the asset might be on the verge of a pattern change.
