LUNC turns bullish ahead of the upgrade
Just a few hours ahead of the update, Terra Classic registered gains, which was encouraging. According to CoinMarketCap, LUNC’s price surged by more than 2% in the last 24 hours.
At the time of writing, the token was trading at $0.00005826 with a market capitalization of over $338 million, making it the 87th largest crypto. Thanks to this, bearish sentiment around the token dropped by nearly 20%, and its Altrank improved.
The price uptick was accompanied by a rise in its trading volume, acting as a foundation for the surge. LUNC’s 1-week price volatility also gained upward momentum.
Coinglass’ data further revealed that LUNC’s weighted funding rate turned green. A high funding rate means that derivatives investors were buying LUNC at its press time price.
Not only in terms of price, but the blockchain has also witnessed growth in its staking ecosystem. Lunc Metric’s data pointed out that after a dip on 9 September, the blockchain’s staking ratio started to rise.
At press time, Terra Classic had a staking ratio of 15.04%, with a total of more than 1 trillion LUNC staked.
Realistic or not, here’s LUNC’s market cap in BTC’s terms
Though Terra Classic’s price registered an uptick, market indicators remained bearish. For instance, both the Money Flow Index (MFI) and Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) went down toward the neutral mark.
The MACD also displayed the possibility of a bearish crossover.
