Polkadot Price Uncertainty

As it stands, sellers forced the $DOT price below its support level of $7. Despite trading below its $7 support, $DOT retains a strong support level at $6.40, and if sellers persist, DOT could fall to this level. A potential recovery and rebound toward $7 may occur if sellers succeed. 

Crucial Polkadot Developments

While buyers and sellers pull $DOT back and forth, Polkadot achieved another major development this week. Polkadot completed a significant upgrade and enhanced its network by implementing Asynchronous Backing.

“Asynchronous backing greatly increases the system’s flexibility and efficiency, allowing more transactions to be processed in a shorter time, thereby enhancing the overall throughput and responsiveness of the network.”

Polkadot also announced another significant development with the release of the Join-Accumulate Machine (JAM) Gray Paper
