Is It Too Late to Buy Hedera? HBAR Price Rallies Over 10% and This Other Coin Could Explode Next – Here’s Why

Bitcoin sank to around $40,500 earlier today amid rumors of a possible rejection for a spot Bitcoin ETF, dragging the broader crypto market down with it.
Despite hitting a new multi-year high yesterday, Hedera Hashgraph’s HBAR token was not immune to the selloff.
It dropped nearly 9% to $0.0885 as of writing. However, HBAR remains well above its weekly lows and has maintained its position within its current trading range.
The recent rally for HBAR was fueled by growing adoption and development activity on the Hedera network.
A crucial partnership was announced in December with Archax, an institutional-grade digital asset exchange.
This expanded support for staking HBAR, enhancing its appeal to institutional investors and validating Hedera’s protocol.
Additionally, the total value locked (TVL) in Hedera’s DeFi ecosystem has reached new highs, indicating a growing user base and strong fundamentals driving the token’s valuation.
New initiatives are also playing a key role in expanding Hedera’s presence and utility.
These include a $1 million metaverse fund through AfroFuture DAO, an NFT campaign titled “Ashfall,” and notably, support from the US Federal Reserve’s FedNow instant payments system after it added Hedera-based Dropp for micropayments.
This fundamental growth, coupled with strong price performance and interest from investors in new presales like Pushd built on Hedera, gives HBAR a solid foundation.
While Bitcoin’s spot ETF-induced correction has slowed momentum, HBAR remains well-positioned for renewed upside once the market stabilizes.

Despite setting a multi-year high of $0.1014 yesterday, the broader cryptocurrency market sell-off has taken HBAR back to its current resistance range.
With HBAR hovering precariously near crucial support levels, investors are left asking whether this selloff marks a bottom or if the coin still has further room to fall.
The HBAR price currently faces resistance at its recent multi-year high of $0.1014, which is in confluence with the extended Fib -0.236 level of $0.1007.
Overcoming this resistance could propel HBAR to new highs.
Simultaneously, with the 8.76% decline so far today, the HBAR price dropped below its horizontal support zone of $0.0924 to $0.0949.
This zone is now likely to act as resistance on any bounces.
The next potential support lies at the 20-day EMA of $0.0866 followed by the more established support zone of $0.0840 to $0.0860, which aligns with the Fib 0.236 level of $0.0851.
If this support level doesn’t hold, the HBAR price could face a steeper descent towards $0.07. That would represent a nearly 20% drop from the recent highs.
On the indicator front, with the RSI currently at 55.82, down from yesterday’s peak of 70.67, the HBAR price appears to have faced rejection at RSI 70 overbought territory.
Additionally, the increasingly negative MACD histogram suggests building downward momentum.
Understanding the recent price action and technical indicators, traders may want to wait for a decisive break past resistance or support before entering new positions.
With HBAR stabilizing above crucial support, the indicators remain at a crossroads.
A breach of $0.08 support or breakout past $0.10 resistance could set the trend’s next leg.
Carefully managing risk is key amidst the current cryptocurrency market volatility.
While HBAR navigates near-term technical levels, Meme Kombat generates buzz by fusing memes with crypto gaming.
