As a direct result of the trading volumes, the SNX token witnessed a momentary surge of 105% which brought up its value to over $3 based on the data from CoinMarketCap. The Synthetix founder Kain Warwick released a blog post outlining the difficulty of DEFI protocols to absorb the BTC volatility if the price continues dropping:
“This is critical to understand, Synthetix is an over-collateralized crypto-backed suite of stablecoins, it CAN implode.”
He attributed Synthetix’s recent success to the community’s responses to difficult circumstances and the will to experiment with mechanisms to provide stability. The entrepreneur revealed that the SNX tokens contribute to 99% of the overall liquid portfolio. On the flip side, the on-chain metrics show the intention of shorting the SNX token on multiple exchanges. Crypto Twitter user disclosed that 16 million SNX tokens maintained a short position on exchanges like FTX, ByBit, Binance, and OKX while 20 million tokens exist on exchanges that could also see SNX breach a value of $10.

The Twitter user alleged that the Celsius network is offering a 300% annual percentage rate to the users to short their SNX holdings.
I see that some people are worried or anxious about the #Bitcoin market price.
My advice: stop looking at the graph and enjoy life. If you invested in #BTC your investment is safe and its value will immensely grow after the bear market.
Patience is the key.

As recently reported, Synthetix adds three major platforms and rather surprising ones to its governance and also announced a $12 million dollar fundraising that is led by venture capital companies that purchased SNX tokens from the DAO treasury directly and will also contribute where it is possible by providing liquidity in the form of the SNX collateral and to also participate in the evolving community governance system as per the announcement.
