In a series of tweets published on 31 March, MultiversX confirmed the launch of xPortal, MultiversX Bridge, MultiversX Wallet, MultiversX Explorer, and MultiversX Explorer in the first three months of the year.

How has EGLD fared?

While EGLD’s price has increased by 30% on a year-to-date basis, its price has embarked on a descent since 21 February. After peaking at a high of $53 on that day, the altcoin’s value has since dipped. As of this writing, it traded at $42.58 per data from CoinMarketCap.

With the coin’s price oscillating within a tight range in the last two weeks, EGLD’s buying momentum has since fallen. For example, momentum indicators Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Money Flow Index (MFI) were positioned below their respective center lines at the time of writing. While EGLD’s RSI rested at 48.27, its MFI was 43.64.

Likewise, EGLD’s On-balance volume, in a downtrend at press time, decreased by 4% during that period. At press time, this was 16.927 million. If an asset’s OBV is declining, it suggests that selling pressure is increasing and more sellers are in the market than buyers.

At press time, the coin’s weighted sentiment was -0.442. A negative sentiment spanning a two-week period and still subsisting showed the presence of bearish conviction in the EGLD market.
