While IOTA is a traded cryptocurrency, it is not a blockchain. Since there is no blockchain, it cannot be mined, and hence it has no miner rewards or transaction fees. IOTA is a system that validates transactions at zero fees. We are witnessing a strong buying volume and rally since the beginning of September 2021. It seems this month is lucky for IOTA investors as it marks close to 20% of gains in just two days. The driving factor behind IOTA is not visible, but it has helped in a breakout of its previous consolidation levels.
IOTA currently trades at 44th position among the largest market capitalization cryptocurrencies. This price action is extremely bullish but will meet the thought resistance of the 200 Day moving average. We can expect IOTA to consolidate around 200 DMA for some time before a breakout, which will be a great point to acquire more coins. It would re-affirm the positive stance and enable us to enter a consolidation level with an opportunity to add more.
Entering at the current rally could offer more gains, but it would carry the risk of severe profit booking from the 200 DMA line.
