What now for MANA?
While Decentraland showed some promise off the charts, MANA didn’t show any interest towards these developements. MANA had been in a windfall this week with losses accumulating to more than 10.5%. Furthermore, the token was trading at $0.73 at press time according to CoinMarketCap.
The falling prices also resulted in a gradual drop in trader profitability. In the past month, the MRRV ratio for MANA generally remained below 0. This marked a general trade of short-term traders holding losses during the period in review.
Given MANA’s performance, the alt didn’t seem interested in moving up on the price charts. However, some buying pressure may bring about some relief to investors holding the token at a loss.
