YEREVAN (CoinChapter.com) – Pepe Coin jumped 28% to 0.000001147 on Oct 25, continuing a “green” week of 82% gains.

PEPE in a falling wedge

Moreover, technicals paint a bullish picture for PEPE. The coin traded within a technical setup called the “falling wedge” since May. The formation features two converging trendlines that gradually drive the asset price lower.

If confirmed, the falling wedge forecasts a rally equal to the maximal distance between the trendlines. As PEPE broke above the wedge’s upper trendline, confirming the formation, the target price for the memecoin stands at $0.000002172, or 90% higher than the current value.

Additionally, the daily chart printed a golden cross between the 20-day and 50-day exponential moving averages (20-day and 50-day EMA; red and orange waves, respectively). The golden cross occurs when a short-term EMA crosses above a long-term EMA, and signifies a bullish phase ahead. Notably, it is the first golden cross on the PEPE daily chart.

Whales behind the memecoin rally

On Oct 24 the team announced that they burned nearly 7 trillion tokens worth approximately $6 million, and brought in a new team of advisers to “guide PEPE forward.”

7 trillion PEPE burned, says the team.
6.9 trillion tokens burned, says the team.

Notably, The decision to burn tokens came after a handful of “rogue” developers executed a series of transfers out of the project’s “multisig” wallet, effectively stealing $16 million worth of Pepe, as alleged by a team member.

While the token’s price jumped 28% on Oct 25, the trading volumes dropped by 20%, indicating that only a few players could be behind the rally. On-chain metrics further confirmed the assumption, as whale transactions of over $100,000 (red) and $1 million (yellow) shot up in the previous two days, after the relative peace and quiet since late August.
