The decentralized finance (DeFi) token COMP looks like it’s ready to break out, according to the crypto analytics firm Santiment.
COMP, the Ethereum governance token for DeFi lending platform Compound, launched on June 15th. Within one week, the token’s price skyrocketed more than 400% to a high of $381.89. It has since come down to Earth and is currently trading around $135.77.
However, Santiment says several market metrics indicate it may bounce back.

The analytics firm also says traders can track a top altcoin to get a sense of when Bitcoin is likely to make a big move.
Santiment says recent price action supports the long-held theory that Litecoin (LTC) gains are a harbinger of Bitcoin bull runs.
“LTC may not be on the crypto community’s radar these days the way it was in 2017’s bull run. But the notion that its pumps foreshadow BTC rallies still have serious legs, after it started to rally around 24 hours prior to Bitcoin.”
Santiment notes that Litecoin’s current fundamentals are mixed, with the asset’s social sentiment looking bullish, while on-chain transaction metrics are leaning bearish.
