Bulls dominated the week
BNB’s price action remained bullish last week as it registered gains. According to CoinMarketCap, BNB’s price increased by 6% in the last seven days, and at the time of writing, it was trading at $329.58 with a market capitalization of over $52 billion.
BNB’s MVRV Ratio went up in the last few days, which might have played a role in increasing its value. Moreover, LunarCrush’s data revealed that BNB’s market dominance also increased by nearly 3% in the past week.
Demand from the futures market also remained high as BNB’s Binance funding rate spiked. However, BNB’s velocity went down during the last few days of the week. BNB’s social volume also followed the velocity and registered a decline, suggesting that the crypto’s popularity declined.
Interestingly, Binance Coin’s NFT ecosystem witnessed growth, which was evident from Santiment’s chart. BNB’s total NFT trade counts and total NFT trade volume in USD increased last week.
Realistic or not, here’s BNB market cap in BTC’s terms
BNB favors the bears
Though the last week remained in buyers’ favor, things might change soon as BNB’s daily chart suggested that the bears had arrived. For instance, BNB’s Money Flow Index (MFI) was in the overbought zone, which might increase selling pressure and result in a price decline. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) registered a slight decline from the neutral mark, which was also bearish.
Additionally, Binance Coin’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was supporting the bears as it was hovering right near the overbought zone. Nonetheless, the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon gave a slight hope for a continued uptrend as the 20-day EMA was resting above the 55-day EMA.
