Three of the top crypto exchanges are adding a litany of new coins for trading, sending prices on a volatile roller coaster ride.
In a new announcement, Binance says they are listing metaverse altcoin Highstreet (HIGH) for open trading.
According to Binance Research,
“Highstreet is an open-world metaverse that incorporates shopping, gaming, NFTs [non-fungible tokens], traditional and crypto brands in an MMORPG [massively multiplayer online role-playing game] game.
Users can play-to-earn by completing quests, attending social events, socializing with players, shopping for NFTs from real-world brands.”
Highstreet’s native governance and utility token HIGH has seen highs and lows since the announcement. The listing sent HIGH’s value from $23.99 to an all-time high (ATH) of $38.42 in a matter of hours, a 60% increase.
However, HIGH has since heavily corrected and is currently trading at $19.66, a 48% decrease from HIGH’s ATH.
Similarly, Singapore-based exchange Crypto.com announced support for gaming studio and NFT marketplace platform Vulcan Forged PYR (PYR). According to the announcement,
“Vulcan Forged is a blockchain game studio and NFT marketplace. Its utility token, PYR, is an ERC-20 token with close to zero gas fees involved in its use.
The primary use for PYR will be as a form of currency in the Vulcan Forged marketplace. Vulcan Forged aims to revolutionize the play-to-earn concept in gaming, where PYR can be earned just by playing the studio’s many DApps.
PYR powers the entire Vulcan Forged DApp ecosystem and can be used as a settlement, staking, and gaming utility token.”
PYR has ridden the ups and downs of price volatility since the announcement.
First, PYR’s price increased 6.9% from $20.56 to $21.97 before dropping 4.5% to $20.98.
From there, the altcoin’s price jumped back up 3.9% to $21.80 before dropping 5.6% back down to $20.56. PYR has since leveled out and is currently trading at $21.43, down 5% over the last 24 hours.
Finally, top US-based exchange Kraken got in on the altcoin action, adding popular Ethereum-competitor Terra (LUNA) for open trading. According to a Kraken blog post, the layer-1 smart contract platform,
“… is a protocol for algorithmic stablecoins that aims to rebuild legacy financial rails in a decentralized environment.
It blends the price stability of fiat currencies with the censorship-resistance of cryptocurrencies to offer fast and affordable settlements.”
LUNA has enjoyed positive price action since Kraken’s announcement, jumping 9.2% from $61.64 to $67.32 in a matter of hours. LUNA is currently trading at $67.32, up 2% over the last 24 hours.
