STEPN rebounds sharply after falling 80% in a month — is GMT price bottoming out?

A massive downtrend in the STEPN (GMT) prices witnessed in the last 30 days appears to be nearing exhaustion. GMT’s price has rebounded by nearly 35%—from $0.80 on May 27 to $0.99 on May 28. Interestingly, the upside retracement started after the price fell in the same range, which had acted as support before GMT’s 500% and 120% price rallies in March and early May, respectively.

The technical support, in addition to oversold RSI, suggests GMT is in the process of bottoming out. GMT price levels...

Top 5 cryptocurrencies to watch this week: BTC, LUNA, NEAR, VET, GMT

The month of April has been a forgettable one for equities and cryptocurrency investors. Bitcoin (BTC) plummeted 17% in April to record its worst ever performance in the month of April. Similarly, the Nasdaq Composite plunged 13.3% in April, its worst monthly performance since October 2008.  However, a major positive for crypto investors is that Bitcoin is still above its year-to-date low near $33,000. In comparison, the Nasdaq 100 has hit a new low for 2022 while the S&P 500 is just a whisker away from making a new year-to-date low. This suggests that Bitcoin has managed to avoid a major sell-off, indicating demand at lower levels. Crypto market data daily view.

Solana’s STEPN hits record high as GMT price skyrockets 34,000% in over a month

STEPN (GMT), a so-called “move-to-earn” token using the Solana (SOL) blockchain, has soared incredibly since its market debut in March. GMT’s price jumped from $0.01 on March 9 to a record high of $3.45 on April 19 — a 34,000% upside move in just 41 days (data from Binance).

For instance, the prices of GMT and its top rivals, including Genopets (GENE) and dotmoovs (MOOV), exploded massively on a 24-hour adjusted timeframe, data on CoinGecko shows. Nonetheless, STEPN remained the most valuable move-to-earn (M2E) project, with its market capitalization closing in on $2 billion.  The performance of M2E tokens featu...
