This cryptocurrency is already traded on many well-known exchanges (Bittrex, Upbit, Huobi, Poloniex, OKEx and others). But the news about DCR listing on Binance immediately triggered its growth. Analysis of the history of the price of the coin gives reason to believe that it can be easily pumped. The fact that in May 2018 this cryptocurrency repeated the prices of January 2018 speaks volumes. However, rapid surges were always followed by fast rice declines. It is necessary to take into account all the factors that will influence the price of the token in the near future.
Growth factors are as follows:
- New markets – listing on Binance will give huge trading volumes (Ravencoin is a striking example).
