Enjin coin price performance

Enjin is no longer a young coin, given that it emerged in late 2017 — over three years ago. But, it certainly did not sit still during this time. It had its ups and downs, reaching an ATH of $0.49 in January 2018, dropping to $0.023 eleven months after that, only to surge once again to $0.2 in March and April of 2019.

The coin’s price started 2020 relatively low, at around $0.07. It surged to $0.149 in February, only to see a crash when the mid-March price crash caused by COVID-19 fears had arrived.

Since then, ENJ has been seeing a strong recovery which led it to $0.223 in late May 2020. The surge was followed by a correction to $0.15, and then by another rally to $0.237 in August.

In early September 2020, the coin crashed once more, this time to $0.15, and after that, it saw strong fluctuations between $0.11 and $0.15.

ENJ in 2021

Enjin started 2021 at $0.13, trading sideways for several more days. However, its price started growing around January 4th — four days ago. This initial growth was slow, and ENJ took three days to climb up to $0.18.

After that came a brief correction to $0.16, which was followed by a sudden and rapid spike up. In the last 24 hours, ENJ went from $0.16 to $0.27.

The surge was not without its difficulties, of course, as ENJ hit a resistance at $0.24. The resistance rejected its price two times before the coin managed to breach it.

Meanwhile, the surge also brought a rapid increase in volume, as everyone rushed to buy ENJ as soon as its price started moving up. The coin’s volume at $0.16 sat at $29 million. By the time its price reached $0.27, the volume went up nearly 10 times, to $266.8 million.

At the time of writing, the coin’s price is experiencing another mild correction which currently holds its price at $0.25, but still 50% higher than 24 hours ago.
