Moreover, the Relative Strength Index indicated that the token was in a bull trend. At press time, it was above the 50 level, indicating a bullish trend. This has been the dominant trend for most of the new year. 

If the Shanghai upgrade goes smoothly, Lido Finance and its native cryptocurrency could experience even more rapid expansion. More bets could return to the site if the improvement makes withdrawals possible. In addition, the recent increase in ETH price could encourage more holders to participate in staking.
