Avalanche slides to  support but is it a buy?
  • Avalanche integrated the Layer-2 solution Boba Network on Wednesday.

  • AVAX trades the $17 support zone

  • Future recoveries depend on market sentiment

Avalanche AVAX/USD trades at $17.34, a level it has held since September 18. The price level has been the lowest since early July. At the bottom level, buyers are showing interest after days of consolidation. At press time, the token was up 2.07% in the last 24 hours. The gains were, however, not enough to erase 7.94% losses in the past week.

Multi-chain Layer-2 chain Boba Network announced entry into Avalanche on September 21. The integration will see Boba help Avalanche meet the scalability demands. Boba lauded Avalanche for its fast and low-cost transactions and eco-friendly solutions. Following the integration, Biba will become Avalanche’s first L2.

Avalanche price and prediction

The integration of the Boba network adds a positive sentiment to AVAX when the sentiment is weak. That helped the token recover slightly amid an interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve. However, we find AVAX between a rock and a hard place as momentum is weak at the support.

A technical outlook shows that AVAX’s in a downtrend. The price has been moving in a pattern of lower highs and lower lows. A recent MACD bearish crossover speaks of the weakening momentum. The moving averages above offer resistance.

Concluding thoughts

Despite the Boba Network integration, AVAX is in a bear market and is not a recommended buy. Buyers may keep optimism of recovery at the $17 support. However, with the weak sentiment, a lower price is possible. 

If AVAX holds the support intact, a wave of consolidation may follow. That will enable the token to gather sufficient momentum to go higher. The cryptocurrency has a minor resistance at $22.

Telco giant Deutsche Telekom launches Ethereum validator

  • Deutsche Telekom will run an Ethereum validator node via its subsidiary T-Systems Multimedia Solutions and has also partnered liquid staking pools provider StakeWise.

German telecom giant Deutsche Telekom has announced support for the Ethereum network, revealing plans to run a validator node on the world’s largest proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain.

An announcement from the telecommunications giant on Thursday stated that the company move is part of its wider objective of expanding its activities across the blockchain technology and crypto ecosystem.

Deutsche Telekom joins Ethereum staking

According to Deutsche Telekom, its validation infrastructure will be handled by its subsidiary, T-Systems Multimedia Solutions (T-Systems MMS). T-Systems MMS will thus operate a validator node on Ethereum, taking part in the network’s staking mechanism.

Deutsche Telekom also announced that its subsidiary would be partnering liquid staking pools provider Stake Wise, this marking the telco’s entry into liquid staking. 

The StakeWise app allows ETH holders to participate in network validation without having to operate a validator node themselves. This in turn lowers the entry barrier for anyone looking to invest in the cryptocurrency.

After collaborating with Flow, Celo and Polkadot, we are now taking the next decisive step in the blockchain world and are doing pioneering work here with Ethereum. As a node operator, our entry into liquid staking and the close collaboration with a DAO is a novelty for Deutsche Telekom,” said Dirk Röder, Head of Blockchain Solutions Center at T-Systems MMS.

The German telco behemoth’s move comes a few weeks after Ethereum successfully transitioned from the proof-of-work mechanism used on the Bitcoin network.

The Merge, as the Ethereum software upgrade that ushered in the PoS mechanism was called, is set to see energy consumption for Ethereum fall by 99.95% – making the blockchain a more eco-friendly network.
