The weakening buying pressure begs the question of whether the digital asset can break the mentioned resistance. Moreover, the token’s relative strength index (RSI) charted through “overbought” territory for the previous week, raising bearish concerns.

In detail, the WAVES price RSI is a momentum indicator that reflects traders’ return expectations. When it runs over 70, investors might consider the digital asset overbought, and short the token, subsequently lowering its value.

Thus, the WAVES price rally is likely to subside in the upcoming days, despite the fundamental developments behind the uptrend.

Waves Finance upgrade

The recent rally raised Waves’ popularity among traders. Furthermore, according to KuCoin exchange’s Trending Coins report, Waves took the gold as the biggest gainer in the previous week.

Moreover, Waves announced it was “transforming” and introduced Waves 2.0. The team will implement a new version of Waves Consensus based on Practical Proof-of-Stake Sharding (PPOSS).

The development of our highly scalable and EVM-compatible network will start this spring. The new network will be connected to the existing one for a smoother transition to Waves 2.0 without depreciating the old network’s value or efficacy.

Neutrino Protocol behind WAVES rally?

Nutrino Protocol, in particular, might get the credit for the rally. It is the largest project on the Waves blockchain. Moreover, it accounts for over 55% of the total value locked (TVL), which stood close to $1.8 billion on March 4.

Additionally, the price explosion initiated after Neutrino posted several upgrades that could make 2022 “the year of Neutrino.” In detail, the platform changed the staking process of its native token NSBT by introducing a new entity, gNSBT, dubbed “votes.”. The latter is used to split users’ balance of “votes” and NSBT balance.

NSBT stakers receive “votes” (gNSBT) in 1 to 1 proportion. Owners of gNSBT receive rewards — a percentage of collected WAVES ↔ USDN swap fees (the protocol fee). Voting in the Neutrino protocol is done with gNSBT.
