UniSwap Price Analysis: UNI Rallies Towards $4.5 After Launching New DeFi Token

  • UniSwap Protocol launches a new governance token, receiving immense support in DeFi.
  • UnitSwap price eyes symmetrical triangle breakout to $4.50.

UniSwap is on an upward roll following the fiasco with its forked asset SushiSwap. Since its listing on Binance, UNI has traded a high of $4.46. However, the saga with vampire token, SushiSwap saw UniSwap lose bearing, resulting in a breakdown to $2.40.

Recovery spears to have resumed as calm returned into the SushiSwap ecosystem. At the time of writing, UNI is trading at $3.74 amid a growing bullish momentum. The bullish scenario is supported by the Relative Strength Index (RSI) after climbing above the midline. If the RSI continues with the positive gradient towards the overbought region, there is a chance that UNI will clock $4.50 soon.

Meanwhile, the above bullish trend is attributed to the news that UniSwap has launched its own governance token, perhaps to reduce pressure from the fallout with SushiSwap. The new token will be utilized in powering on-chain governance decisions. It is also meant to give users the power to contribute to running the protocol. Already the new governance token has become the most widely distribute token in DeFi.
