Algorand is one of the fastest growing crypto in terms of gains. According to CoinGecko, the token has appreciated by 30% in the last two weeks. With the broader crypto market rallying as Bitcoin breaks its crucial $21,000 resistance, ALGO is set to gain more in the next few days.
The Total Value Locked department is where the ecosystem gained the most. According to DeFiLlama, Algorand’s TVL yesterday hit $177 million in value. This uptick in TVL is a bullish indicator that the ecosystem still has the momentum to reach new milestones.
However, the token might be on shaky ground as the bears test its current support at $0.2275.
Algorand Developments On-Chain
Algorand’s G6 governance commitment period ended yesterday, January 16. According to Algorand blockchain explorer, AlgoExplorer, more than 4.1 billion ALGO is staked by over 31,763 governors.
The ecosystem would pay back the governors with an annual return rate of 6.52%. This way of governance makes the Algorand ecosystem stay true to the tenets of decentralized finance. To add to this bullishness, the ecosystem also processed its 1 billionth transaction.
With the ecosystem able to handle more than 2,881 swaps on-chain, Algorand is expected to continue growing in popularity.

Can ALGO Continue Its Climb?
The token is currently trading at $0.2329, a nearly 1% decrease from yesterday’s $0.2341 price. The rejection at $0.2418 would delay ALGO’s recovery. With the token’s support at $0.2365 broken, ALGO investors should be able to buy the current dip in price as analysts are still bullish with the token’s price movement.
With improving macro trends, investors and traders are more likely to enter riskier assets like cryptocurrencies. Not to mention that Bitcoin, the face of the crypto market, has broken through crucial resistance at $21k. With ALGO’s high correlation to BTC, ALGO can ride Bitcoin’s rally to reach higher highs.
Investors and traders should watch the current market situation of ALGO as the token’s current price position as the ecosystem has been having trouble maintaining a social presence.
ALGO holders should also watch Bitcoin’s price rise in the next few days or weeks. The $21k resistance break wiped out the lost ground following the collapse of FTX. If BTC continues its bullish recovery in the next few weeks or days, ALGO can ride the upward wave.
But with the token facing a slight correction, this bullish break might be delayed as the bears retest the current support at $0.2275. If the bears win the struggle, the token’s recovery will inevitably be delayed.
