Buyers demonstrated an upswing and were able to keep the price above both EMAs. The 200-day EMA, which shows strength in the most recent bull run, is about to cross paths with the 50-day EMA for helium. In the event that the crossing takes place, prices may reach new swing highs.
The price of helium has been more volatile this week due to a divergence in the Bollinger Bands. Indicating bull domination throughout the course of the week on the price of helium, HNT’s relative strength indicator is above its average line in the overbought area.

HNT Among Top Crypto Performers
In the cryptocurrency market, Helium, a decentralized network that launched in 2019, has made significant progress. It is now among the best performers. Concurrent with this price increase is Solana (SOL), which has risen by over 50% over the past 30 days.
On November 12, 2021, HNT reached its highest point at $55.15. On the other hand, it fell to an all-time low of $0.200 on May 29, 2020.
The lowest recorded price since the all-time high was $1.16, and the highest was $5.75. The Fear & Greed Index shows a score of 72 (Greed), and the current consensus for Helium’s price prediction is positive.
Meanwhile, analysts say the $20 monthly phone plan from Helium Mobile, which gives customers unlimited data, voice, and text, is mostly the impetus for HNT’s price increase.
According to a recent survey, the average American spends about $150 a month on phone plans alone. Helium’s newest connectivity service is expected to provide a more affordable option than traditional service providers.
