These 3 cryptocurrencies are taking a good greater hit throughout Bitcoin’s value droop
The price to buy one Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped virtually 10% within the final seven days and has been eyeing prolonged declines because it drops beneath $40,000, its interim psychological assist, on Jan. 10.
Nonetheless, the losses suffered by Bitcoin nonetheless seem lower than that of a few of its high crypto rivals’ performances. For occasion, Cardano (ADA), the seventh-largest cryptocurrency by market valuation, has dropped by practically 11% to round $1.15 within the final seven days.
Similarly, Ripple (XRP), the eighth-largest by market capitalization, has dipped by round 10% to almost $0.75 in the identical interval.
Meanwhile, some cryptocurrencies listed among the many high 50 digital belongings have skilled greater losses between 15% and 30% within the final week. They embody Ethereum’s native token Ether (ETH), which has plunged over 16%, and its blockchain rival Terra, whose token LUNA has declined by practically 20.50%.
That stated, listed beneath are three tokens among the many high 50 cryptocurrencies which have carried out worse than Bitcoin on a seven-day adjusted timeframe.
Axie Infinity (-27.50%)
Sitting atop greater than 12,000% year-over-year income, Axie Infinity (AXS) turned out to be the most effective locations for merchants to safe their income.
AXS value plunged practically 27.5% to round $70 within the final seven days, thus turning into the worst performer among the many large-cap cash. Meanwhile, in opposition to Bitcoin, the token slipped by virtually 17% to 0.0017 BTC in the identical interval.
Nevertheless, AXS price may rebound in the coming days as one of the market’s key momentum indicators, the relative strength index (RSI), alerts about the token’s “oversold” status. In detail, the AXS’s daily RSI has slipped below 30, which traditional chartists interpret as a buy signal.
More bullish cues for the Axie Infinity token have been coming from its downside target area between $64.50 and $50, as shown in the chart below. Notably, the $64.50-level served as a support to the AXS price during the August–September trading session in 2021.
Similarly, the levels around $50 prompted traders to accumulate AXS en masse on four occasions since Sept. 7 selloff.
Conversely, breaking below the downside target range may end up pushing below $40, another support level from August 2021.
Unlike Axie Infinity, Aave (AAVE) native token of the same name had been sitting atop dwarfed year-over-year profits — nearly 60% since Jan. 10, 2021. Nonetheless, it has still become one of the worst-performing cryptocurrencies entering 2022.
AAVE price dropped by a little over 24% to $200 in the last seven days. Meanwhile, the token’s performance against Bitcoin came out to be nearly -15%, reflecting that traders remained unconvinced about a bullish rebound in the Aave market.
For instance, AAVE’s daily RSI has been trending lower since Dec. 27 and now sits near 39. It now eyes an extended correction to reach its oversold levels below 30, meaning there is still room for the AAVE price to go further down than its current rates.
The sell signal appears also as AAVE retests its two-month-old ascending trendline support, as shown in the chart below. AAVE has rebounded at least four times from the said rising level since Dec. 4. Therefore, if the coin breaks below it, its likelihood of correcting toward $165, another support level, would be higher.
Conversely, a rebound from the ascending trendline support may have AAVE rally toward the $250–$275 trading range, which has a recent history of acting as both resistance and support. Since December 2021, the area has been able to cap AAVE’s upside attempts successfully
Based on their seven-day adjusted timeframe performance, IOTA’s losses are marginally less than AAVE’s. But given the token has been sitting atop nearly 150% year-over-year profits, it appears like a good sell for traders looking to offset their losses elsewhere during the recent crypto market decline.
Notably, IOTA’s price dipped a little over 24% to $1.00 in the past seven days. Against Bitcoin, IOTA is down about 14% in the same period.

A bounce is now likely, however, as the token’s daily RSI neared oversold levels, while it dropped to a trading range of $0.93–$1.00, which has a recent history of attracting buyers.
As a result, if IOTA drops below the $0.93–$1.00 range, its likelihood of extending its price decline towards $0.71 — a support level from the May–June 2021 trading session — looks high. Conversely, a rebound action from the area could have the IOTA price eye $1.21 as its interim bull target.
