Smart contracts are gradually becoming the ‘in thing’ across technological advances, with hundreds of apps that use smart contracts already up and running. However, smart contracts are currently limited as they need oracles to communicate data from the off-chain world.
This is where decentralized oracle platforms, such Band Protocol and Chainlink, come into the picture. Another platform is Zap Protocol, which allows users to create and subscribe to decentralized oracle data feeds, fueling smart contracts with real-world data. In comparison with other decentralized oracle platforms, this solution offers a way forward to incentivize data providers to create oracles through its oracle market space.
At present, ZAP demonstrates a strong buy the dip potential as its price is set to skyrocket in the coming days, also following the fact that whales are coming off an oversold position.
ZAP technical analysis: Bullish reversal spotted via Head and Shoulders pattern
After its rebound at the ascending trendline connecting the Feb. 1 low of $0.0659 and the Apr. 6 low of $0.1779, the ZAP/USD is heading sideways. This may signal the end of the bearish price swing that began on March 13 at $0.4324 and ended at $0.1779 recently. The bearish correction stayed within the shallow retracement levels, which is characteristic of a bullish trend that is still going strong.
A break above the $0.25 pivot zone is likely, and a daily close above this level would suggest that the recovery will continue. The crucial $0.30 level is expected to be flipped from resistance to support as the recovery progresses. The daily relative strength index is turning from the oversold zone, indicating that price action is returning to a bullish trend.
Supply Levels: $0.3500, $0.3000, $0.2500
Demand Levels: $0.1500, $0.1300, $0.1000
LINK Technical Analysis: Consolidation Extends on LINK/USD
The upside run in LINK/USD was halted by resistance at $35. Following that, LINK began to fall, reaching lows of $30.23. This level provided support, allowing for a modest recovery to $34.90 at the time of writing. Chainlink’s limited price movement was a continuation of the price consolidation that began in mid-February after LINK reached a high of $36.92.
Bearish traders will target the MA 50 at $29.10 if the market continues to fall. LINK may find support for a rally at $30.23, just above the daily MA 50. If this fails, LINK will try to break through the $23.75 horizontal support line. If the $35 resistance level is broken, a push back well above all-time high of $36.92 is possible.
Supply Levels: $40.00, $36.92, $35.09
Demand Levels: $30.23, $27.50, $23.75
BAND Technical Analysis: Amid Selloff, Buyers Re-Attempt Lifting Price
During the previous week’s market sell-off, there was a partial unwinding of previous price gains, resulting in a drop to lows of $15.08 before a rebound. BAND was trading near the mid-$18 range at the start of the new week. Any gains would be met with resistance at $20, which kept BAND/USD in the red for the entire month of March.
Bearish traders, on the other hand, may set their sights on the MA 50 at $14.30 in the coming trading sessions. Further declines could push the price below the $13.34 support level. The bears may be able to push the price down to $11.23, bringing BAND back into its consolidation range. BAND continues in a range.
Supply Levels: $20.66, $19.98, $18.88
Demand Levels: $16.48, $15.08, $13.34
To summarize, ZAP has seen a significant rise over the years and it is currently underpriced and demonstrates stronger potential than BAND and LINK, up by 15,366.95% from its Nov. 2019 all-time lows whereas BAND is up by 8,253.02% from the lows set around the same time.
The start of the rollout of ZAP Protocol Beta 2.0 last month is another positive development for this token which should improve investor sentiment despite its price being quite lethargic in recent weeks.
Specifically, this rollout will significantly lower the barrier to entry to DeFi by replacing complex mathematics and code with point and click functionality, making the process more streamlined and accessible.
