Key Internet Computer takeaways:
- Arkham report and misconduct on Internet Computer’s part
- Positive report from Bloomberg and future developments for ICP
- Resulting bullish price action
Yerevan (CoinChapter.com) – Internet Computer’s native token ICP has gained 176 percent since July 20, topping up at $76.3 on August 10 before sliding down to $73.6 in later hours. The strong rebound rally came forth despite the accusations of an intelligence company, based on a report published on June 28.
Internet Computer misconduct?
In hindsight, Internet Computer had a spectacular start in mid-May, jumping right into the top 10 cryptos by market cap. Unfortunately, that market cap has drastically declined after that and currently stands at $10 billion, ranked #16.
The report mentioned above investigated the price fall and the reasons behind it. Arkham Intelligence, a firm providing intelligence reports on cryptocurrencies and companies behind them, conducted a report on Internet Computer and the reasons behind the plummeting market cap.
Based on a review of their public materials, Dfinity [the company behind Internet Computer] has not followed industry practices meant tostates the report.

Dominic Williams, the founder and CEO of Dfinity has not answered the allegations straight away. However, he commented on the report later on and stated that it was “sponsored by a competitor” and called Arkham a “FUD machine.”
Mr. Williams paid little attention to the report. Instead, he shifted the focus towards Internet Computer Badlands. This new technology helps amateur node providers apply Internet Computer technology through low-cost devices like Raspberry Pis.
Bandlands will help overcome the need for expensive hardware.
Bloomberg also conducted a report on ICP, but a bullish one. The report noted that the project had attracted 500 developers and 250,000 users just ten weeks after the initial launch.
Our estimate is that the Internet Computer will have significantly greater DAU than the rest of blockchain by the end of the yearcommented the CEO of DFinity.
The optimistic vibe might have contributed to the digital asset’s bullish price action.
While the origins of the Arkham report are a point of dispute, ICP went of a strong bullish rally and gained more than 175 percent in 3 weeks. However, the price action has been choppy in the past few days, which is more visible on the four-hour chart.
Despite the fluctuations, the overall bias remains bullish.
