2min Read

Lido’s price was inversely affected by the recent sell-off as it went up in the last 24 hours. The possibility of a continued surge seemed likely as it was backed by positive market indicators and metrics.

  • LDO’s 4-hour chart revealed the possibility of a continued price pump.
  • Lido’s revenue and TVL surged, while most metrics remained in the bulls’ favor.

Lido Dao [LDO] has been facing trouble over the last week as its price declined by more than 7%. A Lookonchain tweet pointed out yet another LDO sell off, which looked concerning for the token as it could further decline LDO’s price. 

According to the tweet, Dragonfly Capital transferred LDO worth $1.5 million, which could add to the selling pressure. However, the situation ended up differently in this case. Is this because of the ongoing bullish market condition? Or were the metrics and indicators supporting the surge?

LDO price is pumping 

Interestingly, LDO’s price increased by more than 7% in the last 24 hours. At press time, it was trading at $2.38 with a market capitalization of over $2 billion. A look at LDO’s four-hour chart suggested that the uptrend could continue further. For instance, LDO’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) registered a sharp uptick and was headed towards the neutral mark.

The Money Flow Index (MFI) also followed the same trend and went up, which looked bullish. LDO’s Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) also displayed a bullish crossover. The Bollinger Bands showed that LDO was entering a high volatility zone, further increasing the chances of a continued northward price movement.

Lido’s network stats look promising

Token Terminal’s data revealed that quite a few factors were working in favor of Lido DAO, which can fuel further growth in the coming weeks. Lido DAO’s revenue has been increasing for quite a few weeks, suggesting increased usage. Not only that, but the network’s value also went up substantially, as evident from the rise in its TVL.

It was also interesting to note that after Ethereum [ETH] completed its Shanghai update, Lido withdrew a total of 63,695 ETH, accounting for 57.2% of Lido’s holdings.

A few metrics were against LDO

Though the market indicators and network statistics looked pretty optimistic for Lido DAO as a whole, LDO’s on-chain performance was not up to par.

Realistic or not, here’s LDO market cap in BTC‘s terms

For example, LDO’s supply on exchanges increased. This happened while its supply outside of exchanges declined marginally, which was bearish. Nonetheless, LDO’s Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) Ratio recovered slightly, thanks to the latest price gains. Network growth was also up, suggesting more new addresses were used to transfer the token.
