EOS Price Analysis: EOS 1.3.0 Release Outshines NewDEX Hack, EOS Stable

Overly, EOS price analysis point to recoveries and EOS is technically stable following yesterdays four percent gain. Not to be derailed by dApps vulnerabilities from NewDEX, EOS traders should look at on-chain developments following the recent EOS 1.3.0 release. The upgrade seeks to strength the network aside from making it easy for full nodes to sync.

Unfortunately, there is no room for error in blockchain. Exchanges are prime examples of what happens when lurking hackers sniff out a weakness. It doesnt matter the level of assumptions and just the other day, NewDEX, a trading platform issued a statement describing how they had been jacked off $58,000. This is after a single EOS account oo1122334455 successfully spammed the exchange with 1 billion fake EOS tokens. By the end of the ordeal, hackers had executed more than 11,500 trades buying BLACK, IQ, and ADD EOSIO tokens and simultaneously dumping them for real EOS. They later converted them for fiat at BitFinex leaving investors with losses.

It is quickly emerging that platform defining itself as a DEX was nothing but a centralized exchange. The deceit it appears, didnt stop there. Unforgiving, NewDEX did operate without a smart contract meaning anyone could actually send tokens to and because there are no checks, trading would go on without friction. This left the exchange-single key coffers open to rogue elements that need only to test the waters before bombarding the exchange with fake orders.

At the end of the day, NewDEX couldnt account for $58,000 and since it described itself as a DEX, its likely that there would be no recompense for investors.

A single trend line connecting Q2 and Aug 2018 lows shows that EOS is literally melting. Nonetheless, there are flickers of hope from a bullish perspective and all this considers pattern development in Aug. Clearly, declines by week ending Aug 12 didnt move far thanks to buyers keen on supporting EOS prices above $4.

Instead what happened was a low-level consolidation concluding with that strong bull bar by week ending Sep 2. Afterwards, EOS prices have been ranging with clear resistance at $ and support at $4. Considering how prices are panning out, we suggest taking a neutral approach. This is with hindsight that $7 and $4 are important levels that can make or break EOS.

From our last EOS trade plans, Sep 17 losses are significant and could end up driving prices towards $4.5 and $4 support lines. While the past three days have been successful in recovering losses, buyers need to see strong moves above $5.5. This could trigger small lot longs aiming at $7our immediate resistance line.

Conversely, failure of bulls to muster enough momentum above $5.5 could ignite a meltdown below $4. This would most likely drive EOS towards $1.5, our ultimate bear target by the end of the year.
