Strong hype around the move-to-earn sector helps GMT price establish a new record high.
The native tokens of a move-to-earn lifestyle app STEPN swung higher on news that they would be available to trade on Coinbase, a U.S.-based crypto exchange.
The price of STEPN’s governance token Green Metaverse Token (GMT) rallied by nearly 20% to reach over $4 in the past 24 hours, hitting as high as $4.50, its best level to date.
Similarly, the other STEPN token called Green Satoshi Token (GST), which players earn after walking, jogging, and running outdoors with STEPN’s “NFT Sneakers,” gained 6.5% to about $6.25 on a 24-hour adjusted timeframe with a new record high of $7.20.
STEPN ecosystem grows
The intraday rallies in GMT and GST markets are part of a broader uptrend that started in early March 2022. The growing hype around the so-called move-to-earn industry is boosting the value of these tokens, which are rewarded to active players.
Move-To-Earn Token FITFI on Avalanche has achieved a 50x increase over the price of DAOMaker IDO ($0.0049) after it was launched on OKX and Bybit today. The public offering will release 10% after the launch. The mechanism is similar to Stepn. https://t.co/KVRVb1kDvL

In particular, STEPN’s economic model, which involves selling NFT shoes and using the proceeds to buy back and burn GMT tokens, likely attracted speculators that see a lower supply-higher demand structure as bullish. GMT comes with a supply cap of 6 billion.

Meanwhile, GST, which comes with an unlimited supply cap, finds bullish cues from its underlying use-cases.
Notably, STEPN players use the token to mint, repair, and level up their NFT sneakers — or even sell them on the app’s marketplace. As a result, if the number of STEPN users increases, it could lead to players limiting GST’s downside prospects by using it as an in-game currency.
Players have already been sharing the screenshots of their STEPN profiles, featuring their physical activities and the GST rewards they earned for doing them. Meanwhile, leading NFT marketplace OpenSea has added STEPN’s sneakers collection, providing more avenues for STEPN NFT owners to resell their digital shoes.

GMT ascending triangle
GMT’s price eyes a return to $4.50 ahead of this week’s close, based on the “ascending triangle” setup on its shorter-timeframe charts, as shown below.
Ascending triangles appear when the price consolidates between a horizontal upper trendline and a rising lower trendline. They resolve after the price breaks out in the direction of its previous trend, and rise by as much as the maximum distance between the triangle’s upper and lower trendline.
Interestingly, the triangle’s upside target near $4.50 also coincides with the 1.618 Fib line of the Fibonacci retracement graph drawn from $3.82-swing high to $2.75-swing low.
GST descending triangle
Unlike GMT, GST is showing signs of breakdown as it forms a descending triangle pattern after topping out at $7.20.
GST’s price has been trending lower between a falling upper trendline and a horizontal lower trendline, which is considered bearish reversal after a strong uptrend. That said, the STEPN token now risks breaking below the triangle’s lower trendline, as illustrated below.
If this occurs, GST’s price will risk falling by as much as the triangle’s maximum height when measured from the breakdown point, resulting in the bearish target of $6.
