Technical View

Projects such as Decentraland witnessed increased appetite as the metaverse craze overtake the crypto world. Decentraland is an ETH-based blockchain that allows users to purchase and sell digital real estate and play games with other users. It is among the metaverse examples. MANA is the coin that users utilize when interacting with the network.

MANA surged from $0.67 low in October towards $4.5 as the month ended. That translates to a whopping 570% return. However, the token saw slight corrections since then. At the moment, MANA has its price teetering at the $3 level. Remember, consolidation is somewhat healthy for upcoming rallies as the crypto cools the RSI, currently standing at 75-level. Meanwhile, MANA should hold its trend-line support and battle the resistance level near $3.12 and $3.47 to resume its bullish actions.
