Published

on

A popular crypto strategist and trader is mapping out the levels where Polkadot, The Sandbox and three other low-cap altcoins could bounce and potentially carve out bottoms.

The crypto analyst known in the industry as Altcoin Sherpa tells his 152,600 Twitter followers that interoperable blockchain Polkadot (DOT) might see an influx of demand once it taps the 200-day exponential moving average (EMA), which is currently hovering at $32.

“DOT: More consolidation expected at the $30-$40 range. 200-day EMA should be support here.”

Next up is blockchain-based gaming ecosystem The Sandbox (SAND). According to Altcoin Sherpa, he’s looking for SAND entries around $5.

“Probably one to buy the dip on. The strongest coins get bought back up the fastest.”

The third altcoin is CRO, the cryptocurrency that powers the Crypto.com payment, trading and financial services platform. According to Altcoin Sherpa, a low timeframe support might provide some relief for CRO.

“CRO: patiently waiting for $0.60.”

Another coin on the trader’s list is Oasis Network (ROSE), a smart contract platform that prioritizes privacy for open finance. The crypto analyst says he’s expecting ROSE to carve out a bottom around $0.29.

“Good first reaction to the 0.618 [Fibonacci level]. It’s likely this makes a lower high if it continues up strongly. I would rather see this consolidate for a bit at 0.618 and then form a solid bottom for continuation.“

The last coin on Altcoin Sherpa’s radar is payments infrastructure platform COTI. The crypto analyst says that COTI is currently respecting the 200-day EMA as support ($0.37) but adds that a new sell-off event can push the token down to $0.30.

“First good tap of the 200-day EMA. I think that this one will find a short-term bottom around here. More support at the 0.618 [Fibonacci level] though.”

New Zealand has become a haven for the rich and millionaires who have earned their capital from cryptocurrencies in recent years, including Mark Geor. Although New Zealand offers many tourist spots, it might lack security considering what happened to Geor.

The billionaire renovated the family home in Auckland, a city in the north of New Zealand, without knowing what misfortune would happen. According to Geor, after completing the renovations, he realized that a safe had been removed from the mansion.

The businessman confesses that there were $10000 in cash, jewelry, high-end watches, and an external wallet where it was supposed to contain the cryptocurrencies inside the safe.

Geor believes that were professional thefts, suggesting that he or those involved worked on the crime because they broke through the security system installed in the mansion. However, Geor is optimistic that the criminals must not understand what the safe contains.

Reward offered for finding the safe

After what happened at Mark Geor’s family mansion, Special Agent Mike Campbell took up the case to find the criminals. According to Campbell, this robbery occurred between the first and second week of September, and there is still no progress on what happened.

Campbell is also the spokesperson for the attractive reward. This compensation will exceed $500,000 if the safe is returned with all your belongings, including the crypto wallet.

The police are investigating if the person hired for the remodeling had something to do with the robbery. Something that might outrage the Cryptocurrency-loving community is learning that the billionaire left his crypto wallet in a safe at home while he was remodeling it. But it is not something that could be expected in a country characterized by having one of the lowest robbery rates in the world.

For now, Geor will have to wait for the criminals to show up with the contents of the safe or for someone to give a clue as to where the criminals are.
