Why is Kaspa (KAS) surging, and can it continue?
KAS’s recent listing on the Korean exchange Coinone played a significant part in its price surge. The project also held an AMA session in Japan, boosting its popularity. Community members could engage with team members directly and ask questions about the project.
Whether KAS continues to rally or not is yet to be seen. If the project reaches $1, it would translate to a growth of about 1062%. However, $1 might seem a little unlikely at the moment. Moreover, there is a chance that KAS will face a correction very soon. Nonetheless, community members continue to hold a target of at least $0.10 (10 cents).
If Bitcoin (BTC) continues to rally, KAS and other altcoins may follow suit. BTC recently reached another yearly high of over $36k. BTC’s new 2023 high may have also played a hand in KAS reaching its all-time high.
