A breakout above the key resistance line at $0.417 will quickly push Stellar price towards $0.56, a 34% move calculated using the pattern’s height as a reference point. Besides, losing the support level of $0.39 will push XLM down to $0.26, which is also a 34% drop.
On the other hand, the Stellar blockchain has announced its Horizon 2.0 platform, which will benefit firms, groups, and developers. Stellar posted on its Twitter, “Big news… we’ve just released Horizon 2.0”. According to Stellar, V2.0 comes with “massive structural and performance benefits.”
The company can utilize the upgrade to run Stellar (XLM), using far less resources than the older versions. The update also offers a new structure that introduces the improved Stellar Core version.
With the upgrade of the Captive Stellar Core, now saving transactions will be possible. It also allows for faster rebuilding of the Horizon client database.
Stellar has called V2.0 development as a paradigm shift for the Stellar network. Users now have more options to select the setting that suits them best. It will also allow them to run a validator or run Horizon for direct access to the blockchain.
