Polkadot price prediction: DOT not ready to leave $36.00 support

So far, PolkaDot has been one of the most hyped Blockchain projects of the year. Back when it was first announced in early 2018, the project raised more than $140 million in a ICO, despite being marketed by an up-and-coming newbie to the crypto sphere, Gavin Wood. PolkaDot is often billed as the “Ethereum Killer”, as it promises to solve many of the problems present in the Ethereum network.

Polkadot has been one of the most popular privacy cryptocurrencies on the market since its ICO last year, and it’s about to get even more popular. The Polkadot network allows for a number of different blockchains to be linked together, creating a true Web 3.0 that is more secure and scalable than existing blockchains. Polkadot is also a more flexible network than most, allowing developers to build their own subchain with a unique governance model. All these features and more have made Polkadot one of the most popular Ethereum-based tokens since it launched.

Summary of the situation

  • Polkadot’s price should move sideways around $36.
  • The closest support is at 36.00
  • ADA sees resistance at 37.00

The price of Polkadot exceeded $33.00 and strong bullish momentum brought the price to $36.00. The DOT’s stock price has risen more than 24% in the past seven days, indicating strong bullish dominance. However, the strong upward movement is giving way to volatile price movements.

The broad crypto-currency market has been bullish over the past seven days, with most major crypto-currencies posting gains during this time frame. The top performers are Ripple’s XRP and BNB, which won 50.83% and 19.69% respectively. Meanwhile, Bitcoin and Ethereum posted gains of 14.78% and 24.879% respectively.

What can we expect from the Polkadot award?

4-hour price chart from Tradingview

Polkadot’s price is consolidating around the $36.00 level, as price action is still near this level. The extremely low trading volume the asset has seen in recent days is the main factor behind this stagnation, showing that most holders are speculating in the market and waiting for the Polka Dot price to take a clear direction.

Short-term technical indicators are bearish, while medium-term technical indicators show bullish sentiment, highlighting the lack of momentum at the moment. Therefore, traders should expect Polkadot to continue its sideways movement around the $36 level.
