The idea behind this investment product is similar to that of an index fun. But, instead of paying fees to a portfolio manager, you collect fees from traders who rebalance your portfolio. You can also earn $BAL token incentives
Second, Balancer has a decentralized trading platform where users pay a small fee to open trades. It enables efficient trading by pooling crowdsourced liquidity from investor portfolios and using Smart Order Router to find the best available prices.
Finally, Balancer Protocol enables developers to use its Automated Market Maker (AMM) tools. Some of the protocols using the platform are AAVE, and Ocean Protocol. For example, AAVE launched its Safety Incentive pool on Balancer.
BAL price has risen sharply in the past few days as activity in its ecosystem improves, Data compiled by DeFi Llama shows that its total value locked (TVL) has risen to $1.6 billion from this year’s low of $1.2 billion. Most of this TVL is in Ethereum followed by Polygon and Arbitrum.
Balancer price prediction
The four-hour chart shows that the BAL price has been in a recovery mode in the past few weeks. As the price rose, it formed an ascending chanel that is shown in black. This price is slightly below the upper side of the channel. The coin managed to move above the 25-day and 50-day moving averages while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) moved to the overbought level.
Therefore, with the coin overbought, there is a likelihood that the coin will retreat as sellers target the lower side of the channel at $6. A move above the upper side of the channel will signal that buyers have prevailed.
