AXS charts its own path to the moon
The stellar run of Axie Infinity’s AXS to a new all-time high at $155.27 also shocked many investors, and it deserves particular attention.
The asset’s whirlwind appreciation follows its growing utility in the virtual Axie Infinity universe where players breed, trade and battle nonfungible token (NFT)-based creatures called Axies to earn AXS alongside another token called Smooth Love Potion (SLP). There are now more than 1.85 million active players in the game, which marks a 4,500% increase since April 2021.
Clearly, the asset has seen quite a few explosive rallies on its way to the current valuation. The data generated throughout this time allowed the VORTECS™ indicator, exclusive to Cointelegraph, to get exceptionally good at recognizing the telltale signs of AXS’ breakouts.
The VORTECS™ Score, exclusive to Cointelegraph Markets Pro, is an algorithmic comparison of historical and current market and social conditions around a coin calculated from a combination of variables including market sentiment, trading volume, recent price movements and Twitter activity.
While the indicator will not tell investors when to go long or short, it can provide insights that are based on historically bullish or bearish conditions for a particular coin. According to the algorithm, the higher the score, the more likely it is that the observed conditions will be historically favorable for the next 12 to 72 hours.
In the case of AXS, historical precedent seems to be particularly instructive.
Between Sept. 25 and Oct. 2, AXS gained 76.67% against the U.S. dollar and 56.05% against Bitcoin, reaching a new all-time high above $117.
AXS saw its VORTECS™ Score peak at 87 on Sept. 26 when its price was $63.15, and the model recognized a historically bullish setup of market dynamics and social sentiment. The breakout began some 2 1/2 days later when the token began to steadily climb from $65 to $117 on Oct. 2.
With an overall 60 days during which its VORTECS™ Score hit 80 or higher, AXS remains the second-best all-time performer in terms of high-score days, trailing only THORChain’s RUNE.
However, AXS’ average returns following high scores are much better than those of RUNE.
On average, AXS gained 4% 24 hours after its VORTECS™ Score hit 80, 7% after 48 hours and 10% after 72 hours. When looking at the occasions when the coin hit the 90 VORTECS™ Score mark, the coin’s average returns are even more impressive: 7% after 24 hours, 13% after 48 hours and 21% after 72 hours.
The token’s price plateaued on Oct. 2 and 3 after recording its then-all-time high above $117. With the price still flat, AXS’ VORTECS™ Score began sharply rising again, crossing the 80 threshold when it traded for $105 and surging to 96. Fifteen hours after hitting 80, AXS price reached a record $153.70.
Currently, AXS’ VORTECS™ Score is again in the high eighties, so it is quite possible that the feast is not over yet.
