Let’s take a look at what drove the splendid performance and what factors made altcoin stand out in the face of grim market dynamics at large.
The founder’s magic
Much of the momentum behind KP3R’s explosive price movement throughout the asset’s history can be attributed to Andre Kronje, the founder of Keep3r Network. Kronje is a prominent figure in the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) space and also the founder of YEarn.finance (YFI) Yield Agriculture Aggregator, one of the top DeFi protocols in the crypto industry.
First announced in October 2020, Keep3r Network is a job registry designed to match organizations and other job providers with Technical Professionals, or Keepers, who can perform routine tasks such as collection of agricultural crops.
The Keep3r ecosystem eventually expanded to include Keep3r Eden, a rules system that enables transparent ordering of trades, a fixed Forex market aimed at providing an alternative to USD denominated stablecoins, and a platform for mining. liquidity of options.
Historically, there has always been a lot of investor enthusiasm around KP3R, as the token has seen many spikes in rapid appreciation since its initial listing on Uniswap. The belief that Kronje’s touch could turn any project into a super-successful business could fuel the positive sentiment around the asset.
November bull run
This fall, after spending much of September and October at around $ 300 per token, KP3R saw its price rise sharply on November 8, around the time the total value locked in the Keep3r Network Fixed Forex surpassed 1. billion dollars.
As the token price began to soar, the trading volume and social sentiment patterns around KP3R worked out in a way that increasingly resembled previous moments of explosive token price action. .

The coin’s VORTECS ™ score was in the 1980s, indicating significant confidence in the algorithm that the outlook for KP3R for the next 12 to 72 hours remained bullish and that a further rise could be expected.
Crypto exchange listings tend to increase token prices
On November 12, a announcement a new Binance trading pair, KP3R / USDT, fell on Twitter. Markets Pro subscribers received an almost instant development alert thanks to the platform’s NewsQuakes ™ feature (red circle in the chart).
