However, the token’s lowering trading volumes hinted at an upcoming correction as the price continued to soar. Moreover, the relative strength index (RSI; momentum indicator) charted through ‘overbought’ territory since Mar. 28, which might hinder further price appreciation.

Why did GMT surge?

GMT is the app’s governance token. In detail, STEPN’s tokenomics model is similar to that of the play-to-earn (P2E) game Axie Infinity. Thus, GMT plays a similar role to AXS.

STEPN is a blockchain-based Metaverse with GameFi features, where users can “make handsome earnings by walking, jogging, or running outdoors.” The company claims to “solve the challenge of fitness” by introducing a monetary incentive.

The app is in Phase 3 of its public beta. However, it has amassed over 100,000 downloads on the Google Play store and over 152,000 followers on Twitter. The weekly GMT surge came in the wake of STEPN gaining support from global crypto exchange Binance as the latter facilitated the token sale.

Moreover, the STEPN team hinted at upcoming collaborations with large sportswear companies.

Does STEPN have an Ace up its sleeve?

In an interview with Solar Eco Funds, the STEPN team suggested possible partnerships with large sports companies.
