Polkadot, Filecoin Price Analysis: September 1, 2021

  • Polkadot price brushes shoulder with $30 just days after testing support at $24.
  • NFT boom could be setting Filecoin up for another rally above $100 in the coming weeks.

The majority of major cryptocurrencies are showing sluggishness mid through the week’s trading. Bitcoin is mainly in a range between $46,000 and $50,000. Upward movement appears to struggle; thus, there is a chance BTC will dive under $46,000 before resuming the rally to $50,000.

Although Ethereum climbed above $3,400 on Tuesday, action to $4,000 is faltering. However, higher support will keep the uptrend intact in the near term. Solana has settled above $110 after rejection from the new all-time high of $118.


Polkadot has kept the uptrend intact since the week started. Support at $24 was crucial for the resumption of the gains toward $30. As per the data by CoinGecko, the smart contract token is up nearly 12% in the last 24 hours and has accrued weekly gains to 20%.

The ninth-largest cryptocurrency boasts $32.4 billion in market capitalization. Solana, which has been roaring since July, displaced DOT from the eighth spot. Polkadot has attracted a $7 billion trading volume across all know exchanges, which is becoming a preferred asset in spot trading.

Meanwhile, Polkadot is pivoting at $30 as bulls struggle to keep the uptrend intact. The short-term technical outlook is bullish, accentuated by a confirmed buy signal from the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Perhaps a real break above $32 (August high) will trigger more action to $40.

Note that discussions surrounding Polkadot have increased to levels last seen in March. If interest in the token remains unchanged or improves, the rally may continue to the all-time high at $50.


Filecoin has lifted from the lows of $40, seen in July, to the highs of $80. The price increase is attributed to a surge in NFT adoption on the platform. According to Wu Blockchain, a renowned crypto analyst, the token’s computing power hit levels above 10EiB.
