  • UMA price had a massive 270% explosion hitting a new all-time high at $44.
  • Several positive announcements might have pushed the digital asset.
  • Most on-chain metrics have remained bullish and indicate UMA could climb even higher.

UMA was trading as low as $11.2 on February 2 before a massive price explosion towards $44 in less than three days. A few positive announcements and whales going into a buying spree have helped the digital asset surge to new highs.

UMA will introduce the ability to buy stocks to Blockchain users

The UMA protocol has announced the launch of a synthetic index called uSTONKs which will track the top 10 WallStreetBets stocks. The WallStreetBets subreddit became famous for pushing GameStop stock and now counts with more than 8 million users around the world. 

The first batch of tokens to be listed is uSTONKS-MAR21 with 10 stocks: GEM, AMC, NOK, BB, SLV, TSLA, PLTR, SNDL, AAPL, and SPCE. UMA is launching the index in collaboration with YamFinance which is one of the most popular farming DeFi projects. 

UMA price could surge even higher according to various metrics

It’s important to note that despite the recent price surge, the number of whales holding between 100,000 and 1,000,000 coins has increased by seven since January 28. Similarly, other large holders with 10,000 to 100,000 coins have also joined the network in the past week which indicates investors believe the digital asset has the potential to rise higher.

UMA sell signals

On the 9-hour chart, the TD Sequential indicator has just presented a sell signal and on the 4-hour chart, it printed a green ‘8’ candlestick which is usually followed by the same signal. The indicator adds credence to the bearish outlook in the short-term.
