In line with the losses seen in the cryptocurrency market on the first trading day of the week, LUNC, the token that powers the original Terra blockchain, ended up changing hands about 2.6% lower on the day. LUNC/USD last changed hands at around $0.0001650. That means, while the cryptocurrency is still up 10% from its November low of just under $0.00015, it is now down about 13% from its high near $0.00019.
Price Prediction – LUNC to Record High in 2023?
Can LUNC surpass its record high in early September near $0.0006 in December? Probably not, according to recent technical developments. Answer: The first thing to note is that LUNC/USD broke below the main uptrend that has supported it all the way back to June in mid-November. This uptrend has now turned into resistance, as evidenced by the failed attempt to pull back above in early December. This failure suggests a retest of the recent lows in the $0.00015 area is more likely than a rebound to $0.00020.
At the same time, LUNC appears to have established a new downtrend since hitting a record high in September. Assuming the current downtrend remains intact, LUNC looks certain to drop below $0.00015 and head towards $0.00012 this month. Bulls will hope that favorable US economic data (i.e. lower inflation figures) and a less hawkish Fed can lift sentiment in cryptocurrencies and trigger a breakout from this downtrend, but this is not guaranteed.
Ok, so things look bearish in the near term, but what about the long term? Can LUNC return to record highs in 2023? Well, if the cryptocurrency market gets a significant turnaround in risk appetite, which is certainly possible if it is fast, perhaps the fuel recession from the US inflation paves the way for the Fed to start lowering interest rates once again, then the recovery in LUNC should not be discarded. But can LUNC return to its past glory days? It’s impossible.
This will require a large reduction in the existing supply of LUNCs and the possibility of a large recovery in the LUNC ecosystem. In what seems impossible, the ecosystem almost died (i.e. DeFi projects jumped ship) when UST withdrew in May, causing the collapse of the Terra ecosystem. Other cryptocurrencies with a thriving development ecosystem and promising growth in users are candidates to excel in the future crypto bull market, not a sign of a dead ecosystem like LUNC.
