  • According to some analysts, UMA is a truly unique DeFi project with unimaginable potential
  • Bitcoin's price went below $37000 support, and maybe it is not the best moment to invest in UMA
  • If the price falls below $8, it would be a firm "sell" signal and possibly a trend reversal sign

The cryptocurrency market is losing its value; Bitcoin’s price went below $37000 support, and the price of UMA is also under pressure. This cryptocurrency price can weaken even more in the upcoming days, and maybe it is not the best moment to invest in UMA.

Fundamental analysis: It is not the best moment to invest in UMA

UMA is an open-source infrastructure that enables the creation of fast, efficient, and secure synthetic assets on the Ethereum blockchain. The native token of this open-source infrastructure is the UMA token, which is used as a governance token for the UMA system.

UMA token is also used to fulfill price requests made on the UMA protocol, and it is important to say that there are 100,000,000 UMA tokens in supply. UMA had its initial coin offerings in April 2020, and 2 million of UMA’s 100 million initial supply sold at the cost of roughly $0.26.

Of the remaining 98 million tokens, 14.5 million tokens were reserved for future sales, while the others were allocated to the developers and for the founders of the project. Synthetic assets on UMA can be created with priceless contract templates designed to ensure proper collateralization by counterparties without using an on-chain price feed.

These priceless financial contracts are supported by “Data Verification Mechanism” (DVM), an optimistic oracle service. Data Verification Mechanism responds to price requests made by financial contracts, and it is not intended to be used as an on-chain price feed.

Synthetic tokens that are built on UMA can track the price of anything, for example, tokens that track the future usage of DeFi projects, tokens that track the success of trade ideas on Wall Street, tokens that track the number of downloads of a Chrome extension.

Developers can easily develop a new synthetic asset by using UMA’s priceless synthetic token contract template. A very good team stands behind this project, the fundamentals of this cryptocurrency are improving, but there’s still a level of uncertainty surrounding the project.

According to some analysts, UMA is a truly unique DeFi project with unimaginable potential. Despite this, I feel that the UMA price can weaken even more in the upcoming days, and maybe it is not the best moment to buy cryptocurrency.

Technical analysis: Bears are focused on breaking the strong support level at $8

The correction phase could be around the corner, and if you decide to invest in UMA, you should consider that the price could also weaken even more in the upcoming days.

The current support levels are $8 and $6; $10 and $12 represent the current resistance levels. If the price jumps above $10, it would be a signal to buy UMA, and the next price target could be around $12.

On the other side, if the price falls below $8, it would be a firm “sell” signal and possibly a trend reversal sign.

Summary

UMA is a truly unique DeFi project with unimaginable potential that enables the creation of fast, efficient, and secure synthetic assets on the Ethereum blockchain. The fundamentals of this cryptocurrency are improving, but maybe it is not the best moment to invest in UMA. The cryptocurrency market is losing its value; Bitcoin’s price went below $37000 support, and the price of UMA remains under pressure.
