- Polkadot price is contained inside a symmetrical triangle pattern on the 4-hour chart.
- The digital asset faces a key resistance level which could be the key to new all-time highs.
- Investors are interested in Polkadot as a potential alternative to Ethereum in the long-term.
Polkadot has been under consolidation since February 20 when it established its new all-time high at $42.2. The digital asset has been trading inside a tightening range and awaits a clear breakout or breakdown.

On the 4-hour chart, a symmetrical triangle pattern formed in the past two weeks will be decisive for the future of Polkadot. Bulls need to push DOT above a key resistance level at $34.3 which coincides with the 50-SMA and the 100-SMA levels.

Reclaiming this key level will quickly drive Polkadot price towards the upper trendline of the pattern at $36.6. A breakout above this point would have a price target of $51 in the long-term, calculated using the maximum height of the pattern.
Earlier today, Polkadot also announced a partnership with IOST to bring cross-chain interoperability to the masses. This new alliance will allow users to transact across all blockchains supported by Polkadot in the future. The most significant development in the past week has been the integration of Polkadot into Ledger.

On the other hand, a rejection from $34.3 will lead to a fall towards the pattern’s lower boundary at around $32. A breakdown below this critical point should push Polkadot price below $20, another 40% move.
