Ravencoin surged on Friday despite a bearish crypto market
The blockchain, forked from Bitcoin, is a beneficiary of the ETH merge
Technical indicators are currently bearish, casting doubts on sustained gains
Ravencoin RVN/USD surged 5% on Friday. At the time of writing, the token was trading for $0.03651. Although the pump is not tied to any specific factor, there is a rising interest in Ravencoin among crypto miners. As a PoW blockchain, it was one of the notable gainers after Ethereum’s proof-of-stake merge.
Crypto miners opted for Ravencoin as an alternative to ETH mining. Besides, the blockchain platform has equally seen rapid expansion. This follows a step by FTX crypto exchange to list RVN perpetual features a mid-last month. The futures let investors speculate on the price of RVN.
It is of importance to note that Ravencoin was forked from bitcoin in 2018. The network aims for the issuance and transfer of new digital assets. Ravencoin is a proof-of-work consensus algorithm network. Its native token, RVN, powers decentralised applications and non-fungible tokens. From the technical outlook, RVN faces hurdles to the upside.

Ravencoin may not sustain the current gains due to largely bearish momentum. From the chart, the token is facing immediate resistance at $0.042. To invalidate the current sentiment, RVN must clear above the resistance level. The key indicators should also turn green. As it is, RVN is not out of the woods yet.
