ApeCoin [APE]: Decoding the reason behind its major rally over the past day
Despite the success recorded by Yuga Labs with the sale of real estate on its “Otherside” Metaverse that went live on 30 April, there is no gainsaying in denying the series of catastrophes that the entire selling process was marked with.
However, the founders at Yuga Labs might have a cause to smile soon with the ApeCoin [APE] poised for another bullish run.
With the cryptocurrency market currently undergoing a corrective phase with prices of coins in an uptrend, the ApeCoin recorded a high of $8.166 during intra-day trading on 22 May. A correction soon followed, which pushed the price slightly downwards. However, the token stood at $8.06 at press time, and appeared to have kept some of its gains in the past 24 hours.
