YEREVAN ( – Internet Computer Protocol (ICP) has surged by nearly 6% to $8.56 this May 17, but that has not deterred the token from pursuing its overlong bearish bias.

In detail, ICP now trades almost 98% below its all-time high of $450, established almost a year ago. Its massive move downside prompts fears that ICP could meet the same fate as Terra (LUNA), which virtually erased all its value in a major price crash last week.

However, LUNA slumped rapidly within a week, which is unlike ICP, whose decline happened slowly and steadily since its trading debut across mainstream crypto exchanges such as Coinbase and Binance.

Ascending triangle spells ICP selloff risks

The digital asset formed a bearish pattern dubbed the Ascending Triangle. It entails a flat resistance line that caps the upside attempts and a rising support trendline. The Triangle predicts a decline after the asset exhausts the formation despite the ascending lower trendline. Moreover, the decline could equal the maximal distance between the trendlines, which targets the ICP price at $6.0.

The trading volume for the coin has also decreased by 50% over the previous week. Notably, ICP’s overall circulating supply increased 2.7% to over 233 million. As a result, the current circulating supply stood at roughly 48% of its maximum supply (481.6 million).

Moreover, many users on the project’s Reddit thread agree. One of the traders asserted that they would wait until ICP drops to $3 to enter the market. The ICP adoption also grew with Binance now offering loans, using Internet computer coins and Monero (XMR) as collateral assets.
