Polkadot’s parachains launch turned out to be a non-event for DOT price
Polkadot price has posted a 40% loss over the past month. Proponents expected the launch of the first five parachains- Acala, Moonbeam, Parallel Finance, Astar and Clover to positively impact price.
The five winning projects have leased their parachain slots for 96 weeks. Ethereum co-founder and creator of Polkadot, Gavin Wood, said,
The parachain model was created with the belief that the future of Web 3 will involve many different types of blockchains working together.
Bette Chen, co-founder of Acala, one of the winning projects, said,
After taking a bet on Polkadot and the Substrate framework when we started building over two years ago, we couldn’t be more excited to be launching Acala’s parachain to provide a DeFi platform and native, decentralized stablecoin (aUSD) to the Polkadot ecosystem and beyond.
The launch turned out to be a non-event for price. The event concluded over the weekend, followed by FTX exchange’s listing announcement for Polkadot. The Bahamian-based cryptocurrency exchange revealed that Polkadot would be listed on its spot exchange.
The news of the exchange listing failed to fuel the bullish narrative for Polkadot price. Analysts have evaluated the Polkadot price trend and predicted a lower high in the altcoin.
@AltcoinSherpa, a pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst, believes that if the Polkadot price drops below the support at $24, it will hit a lower high.
FXStreet analysts have predicted that the Polkadot price is halfway through its 25% upswing.
