Chiliz (CHZ)

The crypto market stalls as stocks have their worst day in months.

Bitcoin kept most cryptocurrencies stable as it held its major support level of $21,000.

The overall crypto market saw prices change by -0.67% in the last 24 hours, which is a similar move to the past few days.

Trading volume over the last 24 hours was 22% higher than the recent 7-day average, meaning more positions were closed as the crypto market pulled back.

The two biggest coins: Bitcoin and Ethereum

Bitcoin is the biggest coin by market cap and its price changed by -1.31% over the last 24 hours.

Bitcoin held its support price level at $21,000. This means we could see a bounce and potentially reclaim $23,000 in the coming days.

The second most valuable crypto, Ethereum, saw its price change by -0.15%. Ethereum’s market cap is 36.49% of Bitcoin’s total value.

Ether trades around $1,550. If the price holds, we could see an attempt to reclaim $1,750 and eventually $2,000 as the Merge date approaches.

Today’s biggest gainers and losers

Big gains happened for Chiliz (CHZ) up 18.80%; EOS (EOS), which rose 16.47%; and Curve DAO Token (CRV) which was up 8.59%. (All figures are based on the last 24 hours of trading at time of writing.)

Chiliz (CHZ) operates Socios, a blockchain-based entertainment and sports platform. With CHZ tokens, users can buy fan tokens for sports clubs and vote on jersey design, team match-ups and other team decisions. The recent gain follows CHZ’s CEO tweeting hints about CHZ 2.0 and a CHZ-20 token standard.

EOS (EOS) is a platform that allows developers to build decentralized apps (dApps). It prioritizes ease of use, enterprise flexibility and compliance, consumer security and scalability. The price climbs ahead of next week’s Yield+ launch, which aims to incentivize decentralized finance (DeFi) dApps on EOS.

Curve DAO Token (CRV) is a stablecoin decentralized exchange (DEX) that uses an automated market maker (AMM) to manage liquidity. CRV is the in-house token for its decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).

The largest drops were for Quant (QNT), down 5.63%; Hedera (HBAR), which fell 4.23%; and Helium (HNT), which was down 3.31%.

Quant (QNT) is an operating system that different blockchains use to interoperate with one another. Its QNT utility token acts as a license key for the ecosystem. It also pays fees and costs for using or creating multi-chain applications (MApps).

Hedera (HBAR) is a distributed ledger network that uses hashgraph technology and serves as a platform for dApps. Its HBAR token powers its services and secures its network. The price dropped as Hash Axis added HIP-336 token allowance-based re-listings. These allow swapping HBAR NFTs without escrow.

Helium (HNT) is a decentralized blockchain network for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Its mainnet allows low-powered wireless devices to communicate and send data.
