The ASTR price jumped on Wednesday morning as investors cheered the coin’s listing in Binance, the biggest exchange in the world. The Astar Network Token is trading at $0.16, which is slightly above the April low of $0.13. It has risen in the past four straight days although it remains about 52% below the year-to-date high of $0.335. Its market cap has moved to about $556 million.
Astar Network is a leading platform in the Polkadot ecosystem that is backed by Crypto.com Capital, GSR, Alameda Research, Binance Labs, and Coinbase Ventures among others. The network’s goal is to create a multi-chain platform that connects the Polkadot ecosystem to Ethereum, Cosmos, and other blockchains.
According to its website, it has a total value locked of over $2 billion and it has managed to bridge Ethereum assets worth over $250 million. ASTR is its governance token, which is used to vote for major changes to the ecosystem.
The Astar Network price is rising after Binance announced that it will add the coin to its ecosystem. As such, it will now become possible to buy, sell, and even stake the coin in the biggest exchange in the world. Other pairs that were added are APE/BTC, API3, and $CTK.
ASTR price prediction
The four-hour chart shows that the Astar Network price found a strong support at $0.13 last week. The coin has managed to move above the important 25-day and 50-day moving averages. Oscillators like the Stochastic Oscillator and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) have been in a bullish trend. It has moved above the descending trendline that is shown in black.
Therefore, there is a likelihood that the ASTR price will likely keep rising as demand for the coin rise. The next key target will be at $0.20. However, as we have seen before, such post-Binance bounces don’t last for a long time. As such, a drop below $0.14 cannot be ruled out.
