  • Curve DAO price may struggle to hold around the current level as selling pressure continues to mount.
  • On-chain data shows that breaking below the $0.34 support level could lead to a correction towards $0.24. 

Curve DAO is facing an uphill battle after falling more than 99.3% over the past three months. While the DeFi token appears to be searching for a market bottom, CRV investors continue to offload their holdings, increasing the downward pressure. 

CRV whales offload their tokens

As the bloodbath in the DeFi market sector continues to unravel, Curve DAO does not seem to be able to escape from it. This cryptocurrency recently lost all the gains incurred in the 80% upswing that took place on October 27. Consequently, annihilating all the bullish price predictions. 

The mounting selling pressure behind CRV appears to be correlated with some of its core fundamental principles, according to Santiment’s Holder Distribution data. 

In a recent report, the behavioral analytics company affirmed that Curve DAO’s tokenomics discourage buying it from the market. The primary purpose of this altcoin is to incentivize liquidity providers and get users involved in the protocol’s governance. Thus, it seems more reasonable to obtain CRV tokens by being a liquidity provider on the platform.

Santiment also highlighted that vested addresses are responsible for a lot of the downward pressure behind this cryptocurrency. It appears that each time the “investors vesting address distributes CRV, the price tanks shortly after.” 

Therefore, Curve DAO price may continue to struggle from an on-chain metrics perspective until a new wave of interest hits the DeFi market sector. 

Curve DAO price forecast 

It is worth mentioning that this altcoin sits on top of weak support, based on IntoTheBlock’s “In/Out of the Money Around Price” model. The IOMAP cohorts show that only 73 addresses had previously purchased nearly 62,000 CRV between $0.34 and $0.36. 

Such an insignificant supply wall could break at any minute if sell orders continue to pile up. In the event of a steeper decline, Curve DAO price may look for support around $0.28 or $0.24.

Given the unpredictability of the cryptocurrency market, the bullish outlook cannot be disregarded. 

A sudden spike in the buying pressure behind the DeFi token that allows it to turn the $0.36-$0.48 resistance into support may jeopardize the bearish scenario. Under such circumstances, Curve DAO’s price could surge towards the next crucial hurdle at $1.
