Therefore, a pullback is in the pipeline for Filecoin with the following price areas acting as possible support zones should this occur.
Filecoin Could Keep Gaining Based on Institutional Demand
However, Filecoin’s journey to new highs might just be starting based on the continual accumulation of FIL by Grayscale investments. The latter Wall Street firm recently launched the FIL trust that is now valued at $8.58 million thus hinting of continual interest in the investment product by institutions.
According to data from Bybt.com, Grayscale has accumulated 29,554 FIL ($6.3 million) in the last 24 hours with a total holding of 45,550 Filecoin as seen in the following screenshot. Such a large accumulation in one day, is a sign of possible additional accumulation of FIL by Grayscale.
