  • Kusama price had a 50% rally in the past week hitting a high of $68.89.
  • Several on-chain metrics indicate the digital asset is poised for a long-term rally.

Kusama is currently ranked 45th by market capitalization at $600 million and it’s up by 5,500% in the past year hitting an all-time high in the past 24 hours at $68.89. The digital asset is one of the best performing altcoins in 2020.

Kusama price should rise based on demand vs supply

One of the most critical on-chain metrics for Kusama is the fact that around 90% of the total supply is already in circulation which means inflation will be minimal. Additionally, more than 50% of the tokens are staked which diminishes selling pressure.

In the long-term, it seems fairly possible for KSM to reach $100 as there is basically no resistance ahead of the current price, considering it just established a new all-time high. However, there are some concerning signs in the short-term.
