Tezos (XTZ) Price Hits 1-Month High After Week-Long Rally


Tezos (XTZ), a blockchain platform that features a self-evolving upgrade system, has quietly been one of the best performing large-cap cryptocurrencies over the past week.

After bottoming in mid-December at roughly $0.34, XTZ rallied to around $0.56 before tumbling through the first 6 weeks of 2019¬†— settling in the $0.35-0.36 range last Friday. Since then, the coin has been moving steadily higher, testing $0.46 on Friday.

A quick look at a shorter-term chart shows that XTZ hit new 1-month high Friday, marking a 25% increase over the course of the week. While the strength of this surge is encouraging, the coin has already started pulling back a bit from this level — as expected before the next leg up.

From a project development perspective, the biggest driver right now is likely the recent announcement that Elevated Returns and Securitize plan to use Tezos to tokenize real-estate for qualified investors. According to the press release, ER has a pipeline of real estate assets in excess of $1 billion targeted for these token issuances.
