OMG’s price seems to be running out of gas in the crypto markets.
Its price surge came as a result of Tether announcing it was issuing USDT on the OMG network.
As a result, OMG shot to an all-time high value of $9.80 and a few cents shy of $10.
However, its impressive run in the markets might be headed to an abrupt end.
On Wednesday, August 19th, the team at Tether announced that they were going to issue USDT on the OMG network transport layer. The move was aimed at reducing high transaction fees on the ETH network that have skyrocketed as a result of the DeFi boom.
We are pleased to announce that Tether (USDt) is live on the OMG Network transport layer.
OMG’s Impressive Crypto Market Run Risks Ending as Fast as it Started
Before the announcement was made, OMG was trading a few cents shy of the $3 price level. However, when the crypto-verse caught wind of the news and the impact of USDT running on the OMG transport layer in terms of reducing the cost of ETH transactions, the price of OMG took off to new heights.
On Friday 21st August, OMG set a yearly peak of $9.80 – Binance rate – which is 20 cents shy of the $10 price mark. This move was an impressive 226% increment in value in less than three days.
However, OMG seems to be running out of gas in the crypto-markets and has since experienced a pullback that began on the day of the all-time high value. The pullback has been abated briefly by a ‘Dead Cat Bounce’ at $5.24. At the time of writing, OMG is trading at $6.29 and looks set to continue correcting in the crypto markets.
