The performance of various smaller tokens with compelling use cases has been robust, and the more prominent cryptocurrencies. The price of Helium, Avalanche, and Pickle is rising due to partnership announcements, strengthening fundamentals, and growing interest in DeFi technology.
The number of everyday items connected to the internet has increased dramatically over the years. As more devices connect to the internet, Helium (HNT) intends to allow individuals and businesses to create, secure, and transport data over a network of nodes.
On February 1, HNT fell to an intraday low of $2.160. It has since risen to an intraday high of $4.009, representing an 85 percent increase in a short period. Although the trend favors the bulls, the bears are not yet ready to concede defeat.
A significant increase in the number of new Helium nodes has occurred. The number of active nodes increased from 3,271 at the end of April 2020 to 18,001 active hotspots in active usage today.
The fact that the initial Helium miner has sold out is also a positive indication. The firm has recently secured partnerships with three new third-party manufacturers to produce mining hardware for it.
The number of hotspots in use may increase further. This is because Helium wants to enter China in March. It already has formed a partnership with HBTC to meet the enormous demand in Southeast Asia.
According to the network’s use cases, it seeks to tackle automobile parking problems, autonomously control the operation of cooling towers, monitor agricultural commodities in real-time, and promote COVID-19 medical advancements. The expansion of the network and the increasing number of applications paint a positive picture of the protocol.
The price of bitcoin (BTC) continues to defy gravity. Its powerful bullish breakouts usually result in short sellers being forced to cover their bets in a short time. Bitcoin experienced a similar reaction on February 9 when the announcement was that Tesla had purchased $1.5 billion worth of bitcoins. According to Bybt statistics, the rapid increase in Bitcoin futures holdings resulted in the liquidation of around $1.34 billion in Bitcoin futures positions.
AVAX stock soared from $10.80 on January 28 to an intraday high of $33.8167 on February 8. This is a 213 percent increase in just over two weeks, according to FactSet. The RSI rose above 90 due to this rapid upward movement, indicating that the markets were significantly overbought in the short term.
While PICKLE soared from an intraday low of $13.69 on February 1 to an intraday high of $35.89 on February 2, it gained 162 percent in a short period. The token had huge range swings between February 6 and February 8, which pushed the RSI above 84.
Another noteworthy event occurred on February 8 with CME Ether (ETH) futures. There were fears that the introduction would send the price of Ether falling. This is similar to the weakness experienced in Bitcoin shortly after the launch of its futures in 2017. However, the cost of Ether did not fall as expected. However, this has not occurred, and Ether’s value continues to rise.
