The cryptocurrency Tezos has only just come back down to Earth after spending early 2020 skyrocketing to new highs, but according to one crypto analyst, a moon mission may be next for the hyped-up altcoin following an inverted hammer reversal candle. Cryptocurrency Refuels After Historic Crash Coronavirus Collapse Few altcoins have had as strong of a start to the year as Tezos. A massive nearly 200% rally took the asset from a dollar and a quarter to as high as nearly $4 before the recent market collapse cut the asset down to size. Like most other cryptocurrencies, Tezos fell by over 50% or more on the XTZUSD trading pair amid the coronavirus crisis. Traditional assets such as gold, the stock market, and more also suffered record-breaking losses.

But given the asset’s strength prior to the panic-induced selloff, Tezos will likely be quick to rebound. And according to one cryptocurrency analyst, Tezos is likely to do just that on the XTZBTC trading pair, where the asset is ready to go on a moon mission against Bitcoin in the very near future. The powerful move up is expected following an inverted hammer candle – a common reversal candlestick resembling a hammer. $XTZ notice the inverted hammer and it's location.

It could signal that buyers are outweighing sellers and the price could soon reverse. But why are investors so bullish on Tezos? Staking New Ground: Tezos To the Moon Thanks To Annualized Earnings From its 2018 bottom to the recent peak, Tezos had grown in value by over 400%, earning it a reputation for providing enormous profits to crypto investors. The surging valuation helped the altcoin enter the top ten cryptocurrencies by market cap, earning it higher visibility with investors and solidifying it as among the safer investments in the space. Although it is the surging prices that are fueling interest itself, the cryptocurrency also offers an annual APY return in more XTZ tokens for those that stake their holdings on the blockchain.
