Filecoin (FIL) Price Risks 99% Drop Despite Binance Support

YEREVAN ( – Filecoin (FIL) followed Bitcoin’s lead and consolidated sideways since the FTX-related drop on Nov 8. As a result, the FIL price traded at $4.37 on Nov 29, holding on to crucial support. However, technical indicators hint at another leg down in the upcoming sessions.

Filecoin, like Bitcoin and other leading digital assets, traded within a pattern dubbed the ‘descending triangle’ since mid-May.

Meanwhile, the descending triangle is a bearish continuation pattern and generally forecasts a drop equal to the maximal swing amplitude.

As FIL confirmed the pattern by breaking below the support on Nov 8, the target price for the digital asset stands close to zero, a near 99% drop. Moreover, the declining trading volumes confirm the bearish outlook, hinting at growing disinterest among investors.

The Binance team also mentioned that the upgrade would not create new tokens. “We will reopen deposits and withdrawals for FIL once we deem the upgraded network to be stable,” said the exchange.
