Upbit effect in play as Algorand and Audius tokens post double-digit gains

Upbit recently listed Aave and 1inch tokens, and the two altcoins witnessed a surge in price. Earlier today, the South Korean exchange listed Algorand (ALGO) and Audius (AUDIO), triggering a rally in these tokens’ prices as well. 

Historically, an exchange listing (by Coinbase) offers a higher average return than most other market events; it is referred to as the “Coinbase Effect.” Upbit is emulating the “Coinbase Effect,” and a listing announcement by the exchange is a driver of the tokens’ price rally. 

@krugermacro, a cryptocurrency analyst, commented on Upbit listings of tokens, 

81% of wallet addresses holding ALGO are currently profitable based on IntoTheBlock data. Pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst @AltcoinSherpa recently analyzed the ALGO price trend. 

The analyst believes that he expected a slight bounce in ALGO price due to low volume and low volatility. @AltcoinSherpa believes that ALGO’s price rally is bizarre. 

The Upbit listing announcement can explain the ALGO price rally. Former White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci was recently quoted in a interview,

Well, I think gold will be okay, but it’s sort of a flatline situation. Can it go up modestly? Yes, but I think Bitcoin and properties like Ethereum and Algorand are gonna go up exponentially just because of the scalability [and] security issues around them.

The two tokens ALGO and AUDIO, have indicated bullish relative social and market activity, implying bullish price action. The carbon-negative cryptocurrency is likely to continue its ongoing price rally.
