Have you ever heard about Cortex?

The word on top of "Emerging Trends"

Cortex (CTXC) is implementing a machine-learning platform that allows users to post tasks and submit AI DApps (Artificial Intelligence Decentralized Applications), released early 2018.

First of all what does the project's page tell us?

First of all there was a significant delay between the tasty price action and when the bees were attracted (social volume spike) - 4 days in between! Have you ever observed this before?

Next, the action itself:

  • Price went up from around 0.073 to 0.198 USD in one day (×2.72)
  • Trading volume swelled up from 1.35 to 46.8 MUSD (×34)
  • Social volume ran from something near one bee a day... sorry from 1 mention a day to around 300 (×300)

Trending position:

See the red dots on the right? These are the bees 😉
I mean that's the points when crowd was attracted and the word "Cortex" appeared on "Emerging trends" page.

Usually these red dots suck all the juice from the price taking off and then it falls down heavily into the ground. But some prices just don't give a honey and continue to take off.

Development activity:

Ascending blue tops indicate the Cortex development team invested more and more efforts in its product before the price took off.

Daily Active Addresses:

Well, it's mostly a common pattern here. The DAA usually spike along with the price. In some cases shortly before the price.

From what's seen on this chart I can say there was a real chance to pump up the price in October but it didn't work somewhy.

Token Age Consumed:

This metric is well known as a top/bottom indicator. Means big players either consider the price topped and exit the game (this is a top) or lose any hope, sell their bags and go away (then this is a bottom)

We can see above that big players made a perfect exit a while ago, while the others...

Zooming to a shorter time frame, latest three months

...the others are trying to catch the tops here and there without much confidence.

Switching to Sangraphs

Total holders balance:

The chart is dipping on the right when selecting hugest CTXC holders. Simply: they offloaded on this top.

Price-volume difference:

Simply again: vertical dotted line on the right may be considered as a signal to sell. It shows a critical divergence between price and volume trends, common for a top.

Okay, now what are people talking about in CTXC context?

Why we should vote Aergo than Cortex in Binance Community Voting?

Aha! ☝️ This might be a reason why CTXC appeared on radars. On November 14th Binance announced the Community Coin Vote Round 3 - AERGO vs CTXC

Trading volume and price went up immediately, but not the social volume.

Join us in 1 hours time for an AMA with @CTXCBlockchain in the #Binance English Telegram group! There will be a $1,600 airdrop of $CTXC so don't miss out! Prepare your questions and get involved

The above tweet from November 19th may could have triggered the social volume increase.

To sum up. Grab your honey and run!

Serously: looks like a top. But may continue building new tops for a while.
