Secret Monero Bridge is creating a utility for Defi

The Secret Monero Bridge is creating a utility for Defi that has not been possible before. Furthermore, the Secret Monero Bridge permits people to convert their XMR tokens into sXMR. The sXMR tokens can be defined as a “secret” version of the XMR token native to the Secret Network, allowing users to use secret DeFi applications such as SecretSwap. 

It allows users to exchange their sXMR tokens in private for secret tokens supported by other Secret Network bridges or natives, or exchange them for SCRT. These positive headlines and performance in the crypto market played a major role in underpinning the XMR/USD coin pair. 

Monero Privacy Token Security Bug Pressures on XMR/USD

Concerns regarding the newly discovered Monero (XMR) glitch remain on the card. According to recent tweets on Monday, the privacy token Monero (XMR) software developer has found a bug that breaks its transaction privacy. Eventually, this news failed to have any notable negative impact on the Monero prices, at least for now.

Furthermore, the US dollar’s bullish bias was seen as one of the major factors that put the cover on further gains in the XMR/USD pair. The broad-based US dollar managed to extend its early morning positive performance on the USD front. 

The greenback remained well bid on the day as traders’ fears of a global economic recession amid COVID-19 cases boosted safe-haven asset demand, including the US dollar. The Taliban’s quest for power in Afghanistan and the US-Iran and Sino-American tussles also weighed on risk sentiment, which further supported the safe-haven US dollar.

Monero Price Prediction -Upward Trendline to Underpin XMR at $270

The Monero price prediction is bullish above the 270 level. Closing a 4-hour candle above this level could bring us a buying opportunity. On the 4-hour timeframe, the XMR/USD has formed an upward trendline connecting from Aug 13 to Aug 16 lows. Therefore, the breakout of 270 support levels could drive additional selling until 261 and 252 support levels.

On the bullish side, the double top pattern will likely extend resistance at 279 and 285 levels. On the 4-hourly chart, the 50 day EMA (Exponential Moving Average – Red Line) is extending support at 274 levels. The XMR/USD pair has recently tested the EMA It seems like it’s going to close above the 274 level. If this happens, the bullish bias will dominate XMR.

Taking a peek at the Oscillator indicator such as the Stochastic RSI, its value is staying at 84. The RSI suggests bulls are exhausted, and the current bearish momentum could merely be a correction, and soon bulls could dominate the market.

Therefore, forex trading participants may look for a buy trade above the $270 level to the target of $285. Furthermore, the sell-stop can be placed at the $268 level to capture a sell until the $261 and $256 levels. All the best.
