|Maker DAO Shows Bullish Sentiment After A While, Eyes $800?
MKR trades below 50 and 200 EMA on the daily timeframe.
Price breaks out of a falling wedge with eyes set on key resistance of $800. The price looks strong on low and high timeframes. Maker DAO (MKR) price has had a rough time recently as price beaks out of falling wedge on the daily timeframe against tether (USDT). Despite being a major player in the crypto industry, the price of Maker DAO (MKR) has struggled to replicate its run to a high of $8,000. (Data from Binance)
Maker DAO (MKR) Price Analysis On The Weekly Chart
The price of MKR has had a fantastic run, with such movement from a low of $750 to a high of $8,000 in a matter of weeks, creating a sense of surrealism in the hearts of traders and major crypto players.
Despite such a run, the bear market has had an impact on MKR's price, which has fallen from $8,000 to $600, a drop of more than 70% from its all-time high.
The price of MKR rallied from its weekly low of $600 to a high of $1,100 before failing to break above that region to higher heights and falling to a low of $650.
MKR's price must break and close above $1,100 in order to have a better chance of trading higher. The price of MKR has formed a downtrend line, which is acting as resistance; flipping the area of $1,100, which is acting as weekly resistance, into support will signal a more relief bounce for the price of MKR.
If the price of MKR fails to break through this key resistance region, the price of MKR may retest the $600 support and demand ...
|Crypto Market Maker Wintermute Hackers Drain $160M, Profanity Bug Suspec...
UK-based crypto market maker Wintermute suffered a loss of approximately $160 million.
In a series of tweets, the company's founder and chief executive, Evgeny Gaevoy, revealed that the decentralized finance operations had been compromised. The centralized finance and over-the-counter verticals have not been affected.
Blockchain security expert Certik recorded that $162,509,665 had been stolen over 13 transactions and speculated that the exploit could have resulted from a brute force attack on the Profanity wallet.
The attacker took advantage of a leaked private key which they were able to utilize to set their malicious contract as the swap contract.
Notably, the private key compromise stemmed from a vulnerability in the Profanity wallet reported last week by 1inch in a security disclosure report.
After it was detected by the decentralized exchange aggregator, a hacker stole over $3 million worth of cryptocurrencies from several Ethereum addresses generated with the Profanity tool.
Despite the hack, Gaevoy has assured that Wintermute, whose backers include Lightspeed Venture Partners, Pantera Capital, as well as Fidelity's Avon, has 'twice over that amount in equity left.'
“If you have a MM agreement with Wintermute, your funds are safe. There will be a disruption in our services today and potentially for the next few days and will get back to normal after. Out of 90 assets that have been hacked only two have been for notional over $1 million (and none more than $2.5M...

On September 8, the crypto security and smart contract auditing firm Certik revealed that 500,000 DAI was sent through the Tornado Cash mixing platform after the funds were stolen in August 2021. The digital assets originally stemmed from the DAO Maker breach that saw the loss of more than $7 million in ERC20 tokens and stablecoins.Address Directly Connected to DAO Maker Hack Sends 500,000 DAI Through Tornado Cash
Despite the U.S. government banning the Ethereum-based mixing application Tornado Cash, the application is still used regularly. On Thursday, the crypto security company Certik tweeted at 7:30 p.m. (ET) about the movement of DAI. 'We are seeing a movement of 500,000 DAI to Tornado Cash from EOA 0x0B789,' Certik said. 'The address is directly connected to the DAO Maker exploiter who stole funds from [the DAO Maker]. Stay safe out there.'
DAO Maker is a crowdfunding decentralized finance (defi) application and is not the same project as Makerdao, the issuer of the stablecoin DAI. The crypto-fueled fundraising protocol DAO Maker was hacked in August 2021, according to an ask-me-anything (AMA) event featuring DAO Maker's CEO Christoph Zaknun. The hackers were able to siphon $7 million in ERC20 tokens and stablecoins from 5,251 user accounts. At the time, the blockchain firm Cipherblade detailed it was conducting an investigation into the DAO Maker exploit.
In addition to Certik, the crypto security firm Peckshield confirmed that 500,000 DAI stemming from the August 202...

|Biggest Movers: MKR up 20% to Start the Week, Whilst AVAX Rebound Contin...
MKR was up by nearly 20% to start the week, as prices continued to move away from recent lows. AVAX was also in the green, as it climbed by over 10% on Monday, after hitting a ten-month low during the weekend.
MKR was a notable mover to start the week, as prices climbed nearly 20% on Monday, following recent declines.
Following an intraday bottom of $789.20 on Sunday, MKR/USD raced to a peak of $948.50, as prices neared a key resistance point.
This level is the $1,000 mark, which was broken last week, for the first time since December 2020.
However, bulls seem to have re-entered following this multi-year low, and using this as an opportunity to 'buy the dip'.
As of writing, earlier gains have somewhat eased, with MKR trading around $40 lower than today's previous peak.
This comes as the 14-day RSI hit a resistance point of its own, at the 43 level, which likely triggered bulls into selling.
AVAX was also higher for a second consecutive session, moving away from a ten-month low in the process.
Following a drop to $13.91, which is its lowest point since August 2021 over the weekend, AVAX/USD rebounded to start the week.
This surge saw prices hit an intraday high of $17.82, which is over 15% higher than the low during the weekend.
Bulls now seem set on taking prices back towards a key resistance level of $22, and this might be a realistic target, following another breakout.
This breakout is of the ceiling on the 14-day RSI of 34.75, which was b...

[PRESS RELEASE - Prague, Czech Republic, 6th April 2022]
DAO Maker, the leading IDO and IGO launchpad for cryptocurrency projects, ventures into the world of NFTs. More specifically, the team is launching an NFT launchpad, with the first project being the Maradona D10S NFT collection. It is the first-ever Maradona-licensed collection to come to market, supported by all five of the soccer star’s heirs.
DAO Maker has built up a strong market position through its multiple launchpad solutions. The platform primarily facilitates Initial DEX Offering (IDO) and Initial Gaming Offering (IGO) solutions and will now explore similar opportunities in the non-fungible token space. NFTs have seen a tremendous popularity surge in 2021 and the demand for NFT-related launchpad solutions rises quickly.
The DAO Maker launchpad has yielded dozens of projects exploring IDO and IGO approaches. But, more importantly, DAO Maker was the first major launchpad to facilitate these approaches and the first incubation hub to explore new opportunities in the space.
That approach allowed DAO Maker to become one of the largest networks in 2021, with over 135,000 KYC-verified users and over 270,000 followers on Twitter.
The next crucial venture for DAO Maker revolves around its upcoming Maradona D10S NFT drop. The NFT collection features various profile pictures of the late and great Diego Maradona and celebrates the upcoming launch of FIFA 2022. Moreover, the legend's fans can use the profile pictures ...
|Biggest Movers: SAND Surges on HSBC Partnership — MKR, WAVES Both ...
SAND was higher on Wednesday, as it was announced that HSBC was set to enter the Metaverse via The Sandbox. While up nearly 10% on the news, MKR and WAVES were also some of today's leading gainers.
The Sandbox (SAND)
On Wednesday, it was confirmed that The Sandbox and the British financial institution HSBC agreed to a partnership that would see the bank enter the metaverse.
The news saw the project's native token SAND surge in today's session, climbing by over 9% as of writing this, moving away from its recent support level in the process.
Following its rally from support of $2.65, SAND/USD hit an intraday high of $3.01, which is its highest level since March 9.
This move came as the 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) rose past its ceiling of 42.5, which took place for the first time since the end of February.
Now tracking at 45.4, the RSI is approaching yet another resistance point, this time at 46.25, a level which hasn't been in almost four weeks.
Should this happen, the first price target will be the $3.15 level, which has acted as resistance in the past.
Although SAND/USD was today's biggest gainer, WAVES was a close second, with MKR flanking in third place.
WAVES once again broke past recent resistance of $29.10, on its way to its highest level since October 27, when price peaked at $33.86.
As of writing this, WAVES/USD rose to an intraday high of $30.98, which is over 8% higher than yesterday's low of $26.06.
WAVES lost momentum following today's breakou...
|DAO Maker Launches Public SHOs For Investing In Crypto Startups
DAO Maker, a platform for retail venture investing in equity and tokens, has launched Public Strong Holder Offering (SHO) as its latest service to facilitate fundraising for blockchain and cryptocurrency startups. Through this Public SHO, DAO Maker has opened the floodgates to access an unprecedented volume of market liquidity.
SHOs are a mechanism or service which utilizes certain procedures to choose genuine investors for funding crypto projects. For example, SHOs analyze on-chain data, user activity, liquidity provider (LP) status, and interaction with previous projects. These data sets help in choosing the right kind of investors for a particular startup, building a community around the project. Investors too can apply for a refund if the projects perform poorly and the developer team fails to deliver.
The Public SHO model from DAO Maker is a first-of-its-kind innovation in the crypto investing space.
Facilitating Fundraising With DAO Maker’s Public SHO
DAO Maker makes participation in fundraising procedures accessible and open to a diverse set of crypto holders. Any user who has completed the KYC process and has $2500 worth of crypto in their wallet on EVM-compatible networks can participate. The platform creates a profile on the basis of the user’s wallet activity. Thus, projects can choose investors from designated groups like DeFi, NFTs, GameFi, depending on wallet usage.
The DAO Maker Public SHO is divided into two segments: the ‘Freemium’ and...
|Huobi Global Becomes First Exchange to Offer Maker Fee Rebates for All U...
[PRESS RELEASE - Please Read Disclaimer]
Huobi Global, one of the world's leading digital asset exchanges, today announced the launch of a trading fee rebate campaign for USDT-margined futures, becoming the first cryptocurrency exchange to offer maker fee rebates (as high as 0.015%) for all users. The platform also offers amongst the lowest taker fees in the market: even normal users can receive 0.02% taker fees for trading USDT-margined futures.
Commonplace amongst digital asset trading platforms, the maker and taker model is a method to separate orders that provide liquidity (maker orders) and those that take liquidity (taker orders). In contrast to a taker order, which gets the fee when the order is matched instantly against an order already on the order book, a maker order gets the fee when the order is placed to the order book and is waiting for others to match with it. This particular campaign is unique in that it incentivizes all individual users who trade as a maker by offering them an additional 0.015% of their USDT-margined futures’ trading volumes.
USDT-margined futures play a vital role as derivatives by enabling investors to hedge a position, speculate on an underlying asset, or leverage their positions. With stablecoin USDT as the margin asset, users can trade multiple contracts without needing to purchase various assets. When people trade USDT-margined futures, the profits are calculated in USDT, making it easier for investors to benchmark and calculate p...
|Timechain DEX Introduces Liquidity Pools & Farming Features on Its Autom...
Decentralized financial ecosystem, Timechain announced the launch of new features to its decentralized exchange (DEX), this Monday, bringing the world of decentralized finance (DeFi) to its users. The new DeFi features include staking, liquidity pools, yield farming, and permissionless lending and borrowing. Additionally, users will be able to swap thousands of cryptocurrencies on multiple blockchains including assets on Binance Smart Chain, Ethereum, and Fantom ecosystems.
Since the start of 2020, the DeFi ecosystem has soared exponentially in value as developers introduced new ways for users to make their capital work. In 2021, the industry further blossomed as Layer 1 scalability solutions such as Solana and Layer 2 solutions including Polygon, Fantom, and Avalanche were built on Etherum, reducing the gas costs and transaction times greatly.
According to DeFi Pulse data, the total locked value (TVL) DeFi ecosystem has grown from $10.5 billion in January 2020 to a high of $112 billion in November 2021, representing almost 10X growth during the period. One of the leading applications of DeFi supporting the gargantuan growth is the rise of automated market makers, or AMMs. They allow investors and token holders to use their tokens to provide liquidity, earn returns and concurrently increase demand for the native token exchange.
The latest upgrades on Timechain’s DEX are set to improve the efficiency of its AMM while offering an industry-spread aggregator to enable users...
|Maker Co-Founder Calls UST and MIM ‘Solid Ponzis’ That Will Go to Ze...
Rune Christensen, one of the founders of Maker, the decentralized autonomous organization behind the governance of stablecoin DAI, has spoken out against two competitors. He stated that UST, Terra's dollar-pegged stablecoin, and MIM, another collateralized stablecoin, were 'solid ponzis' and that the bear market would eventually lead their prices to zero.
Maker Co-Founder Calls Out Competitors
Rune Christensen, one of the co-founders of the organization behind the creation and development of DAI, a decentralized stablecoin, has called out two competitors. Christensen indicated that he got tired of being nagged by UST and MIM 'reply guys' on Twitter, and indicated his opinion about these two relatively new stablecoins, comparing them with DAI. Christensen stated:
Look, UST and MIM are solid ponzis and I respect that. You can make good money off them for sure. But they are not built for resilience and they are going to 0 once the market turns for real.
Christensen elaborated by indicating that DAI was built for resilience while noting that the project is the most trustable when it comes to smart contracts and collateral security. However, UST flipped DAI as the most valuable stablecoin project back in December. Still, DAI is ranked second amongst decentralized stablecoin projects by market capitalization.
While MIM, UST, and DAI are all decentralized stablecoins in name, each one of them is engineered differ...
