This Ethereum Staking Token Shot up 20% In Just 12H

  • Rocket Pool holds 2.44% of the contributors of Ethereum Staking. 
  • At press time, Ethereum’s price oscillated between $2,115 and $2,130.

Post the Ethereum Shanghai Upgrade, the second-largest cryptocurrency crossed the $2,100 level. Amid this ETH hustle, RPL, the native DeFi token of the Ethereum staking protocol Rocket Pool, spiked 20% in just 12 hours.

According to data from TradingView, the RPL/USDT spot hit $53.95 on the largest crypto exchange Binance at 03:59 UTC. 

Notably, Rocket Pool holds a prominent record related to Ethereum staking. As per the on-chain data from Nansen, 2.44% of the ETH depositors who staked their Ether on the Beacon Chain are wired through this staking protocol.

From the above chart, it can be seen that the price action of RPL hovered above the 50-day moving average (50MA). Thus, it points to the token’s current bullish state. Also, at the time of analysis, the chart recorded the relative strength index (RSI) of RPL at 66.50. This indicates a neutral state but a possible upside move will result in the crypto’s overbought condition. Eventually, it might denote a zone of selling pressure and possible trend reversal.

RPL is deployed in the Rocket Pool’s staking ecosystem for three primary functions — governance, reward system and users’ insurance. During the crypto market’s bullish recovery, the token satisfactorily hit its 16-month-high of $56.1 in February 2023, as per CoinMarketCap. However, the token is down by 65% from its all-time high (ATH) of 154.73 which was on November 2021.

Rocket Pool reserved the second position on the list. While the third gainer was Optimism (OP), which is another ETH L2 rollup network token. OP was priced at $2.64 with a 24-hour gain of 15.3%.
