The crypto market recently saw quite a rally, with nearly every cryptocurrency in the space experiencing massive gains. However, one of the early coins to blow up was actually a privacy coin, Dash (DASH), which surged by 9% and became one of the rally leaders.
The growth started during the early Asian hours on Monday, April 1st, when DASH spiked to reach the market cap of $932 million, while its trading volume went up to $296 million. Meanwhile, its price went up from around $106.45 on March 31st to $118.94.
Soon after the initial burst, DASH started losing the momentum, and its price actually saw a minor correction which brought it back down to $116. However, this was when the rest of the market joined in, and the bull run took Dash up to its highest point in 2019 — $135.
Dash reached this price on April 3rd, two days after the initial surge, which is when the bull run started losing strength as well, causing a number of coins to experience corrections. Dash was among them as well, although its drop from $135 got softened by a strong resistance at $120. After the correction had ended, DASH price was still well above its highest point prior to the industry-wide rally.
DASH bounces off after a small correction
At the time of writing, DASH is seeing growth once again, with its price currently sitting at $131.19, with 3.14% growth in the last 24 hours. And, while this growth is against the USD, DASH is also holding its own against BTC as well, with the price of 0.02636302 BTC at the time of writing, after 3.50% growth in the past 24 hours.
The coin is also seeing quite a lot of usage, judging by its trading volume that spiked to $366.2 million in the last day. Meanwhile, its market cap at the moment sits at $1.140 billion. However, even with the market cap of this size, Dash still remains at the 14th place on the list of largest cryptocurrencies by market cap, indicating that the entire market is performing much better than only a week ago.
In fact, IOTA (MIOTA), which currently occupies the 15th spot on the list, is the first coin with a market cap below $1 billion, although even MIOTA is quite close to this milestone, with the current market cap of $967.17 million.
What is next for DASH?
As for DASH, the coin continues to grow, currently making another attempt at breaching the $135 level. It is difficult to say whether or not it will be successful at doing it, as the barrier stands strong, acting as a major resistance for DASH. However, it is not impossible for the coin to break through, as its already did the same with another massive resistance level at $120, seemingly without much effort.
If DASH price does get rejected when it approaches the $135 resistance, it will likely experience a correction which should not be a major one, but it might still push the coin’s price back down towards the support at $120. However, it is also very likely that DASH price might simply remain below the resistance, and wait for the next market-wide rally to start.
Whatever happens next, DASH is currently at the levels that were not seen since the mid-November market crash, which is certainly encouraging for investors and traders, and its current behavior indicates that its price is ready to continue the growth.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
