BNT - Where are we now?

Assets covered: Bancor (BNT)

Metrics used: Price, Daily Active Deposits, Dev Activity, MVRV

Some notables


BNT price action - Sanbase

BNT has recently bounced off the previous resistance zone and is attempting to make this a resistance turned support. While it's encouraging for now, it's still too early to tell how things will fare out given the uncertainty around BTC's prices.

In Crypto's current state, anytime BTC makes a downward move, all altcoins tend to crap their pants and it is unlikely that BNT will be an exception.

That said... when we zoom out into the larger timeframe,

BNT Price action over the years - Sanbase

We can observe that in the previous major blow off tops in 2018 and 2020, BNT's price did see a relief rally before continuing its downward trend.

Assuming we are in a bear market, we might just we see something similar in this cycle.

One of the possible catalysts for this rally could be "buy the rumour" towards Bancor's V3 release (no date yet).

Development activity

Bancor Dev Activity - Sanbase

While the announcement of Bancor V3 coming brings much excitement, the Development Activity following it was rather lacklustre as it declined the lowest level in 2021.

MVRV 30D and MVRV 365D

Short-term holders (MVRV30D) are still in the red.

As for the long-term holders (MVRV 365D), we recently saw the MVRV 365D hitting the lowest levels in 1 year.

The pain is real for long term holders.

Daily Active Deposits

BNT Daily Active Deposits - Sanbase

BNT's Daily Active Deposits is still showing signs of constant sell pressure as people rush to deposit each time the price pumps.

Given that we are in a downtrend, it's likely that people are using any chance available to cut their losses.

In summary

As with most alts in the market, BNT's price found some support but is still struggling to show strength.

Onchain metrics are still showing signs of pain and people are eager to cut their losses where possible.

Given that the market is still in a bear trend, any speculative juice (Bancor V3) will only give it a temporary boost before continuing down. It is likely, we'll see a similar behavior (people rushing to cut losses at pumps) when that happens.
