Monacoin traded lower on Monday after ending last week on a 50-percent gain.

The MONA-to-dollar exchange rate fell as much as 30-percent to $0.94 from its Sunday peak. As of 1344 UTC, the pair had recovered towards $1.10 with the coin’s market capitalization at $72.3 million. However, based on a 24-hour adjusted timeframe, both the price and valuation was still down by circa 10-percent against the dollar and 10.5-percent against bitcoin.

The past 24 hours saw exchanges trading around $15.75 million worth of MONA-enabled pairs. Japan-based Bitbank hosted more than 90-percent of the total MONA trading volume against the Japanese Yen. At the same time, the exchange noted $367K worth of bitcoin-enabled trades in the MONA market. Bitbank is a regulated trading platform, which means that the probability of price manipulation by the exchange was the least in its case.

Mysterious Buyer

Monacoin is neither a Tezos featured in a high-profile staking service nor a Tron backed by a persistent marketer. The blockchain asset is merely a digital token which took its cues from a more established project like Litecoin and launched itself as a Japanese-version of Dogecoin in 2013. The project has been there for far too long which should keep the “scam accusations” away. But that still does not explain the fundamentals around the mysterious MONA pump.

Twitterati Bobcat Crypto reported a “medium strength buy signal” on Bittrex, a US-based cryptocurrency exchange that raised the buy volume by circa 276-percent. It appears the mysterious buyer(s) exhausted its buying frenzy at a certain level, followed by an exit. That is the only explanation which could explain Monacoin’s intraday performance on Saturday throughout Sunday, followed by a sharp correction Monday.


Entering new long positions in the MONA market looks risky since the potential of an extended downside correction is high. Meanwhile, a Short target towards the intraday support level at $0.94 could yield a decent interim profit. A stop loss order maintained a few points above the entry position would minimize losses in the event of the asset rebounding ahead of testing the Short target.
