The most popular web3 wallet may be getting its own token, according to ConsenSys founder Joe Lubin. Lubin's tweet below sparked speculation that MetaMask, used by more than 10 million people worldwide to access the DeFi and NFT ecosystems, may airdrop tokens to its users, similar to how projects like Uniswap have done in the past.
Discord CEO Jason Citron posted a screenshot on November 9th that shows the social messaging app connecting to Ethereum, saying “probably nothing" and displays the option to connect using Ethereum wallet MetaMask or blockchain-agnostic wallet connector WalletConnect.
With integration of ETH into the app, users would be able to send each other crypto, opening a potential monetization opportunity for Discord to capitalise on transaction fees.

Let's look at the Bitcoin chart.
Bitcoin is making fresh highs and looks to head towards the Fibonacci extension level at $81,502 over the long term. As long as the price of Bitcoin remains above $64,899 we should see the leading cryptocurrency move towards the $80,000 level over the next few weeks.
The daily chart below shows that a Bollinger Squeeze is in play and the width of the bands is still relatively low, suggesting there's still more room for upside. As long as today's close is above $68,568, then we'll get a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern on the daily timeframe which would suggest more gains for the days ahead.
The 4-hour chart for Bitcoin is shown below and the Bollinger Bands show two important levels that could serve as good buying opportunities: the middle band, currently at $66,282, and the lower band, currently at $62,562. The upper band provides resistance at the psychological $70,000 handle.
The outlook for the price of Ethereum is similar to that of Bitcoin, with fresh highs consistently being made over the past few days. The medium-term target for bulls lies at the first Fibonacci extension just above $5,552, shown by the chart below.
The daily chart for ETH also shows that a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern is forming and will be confirmed if the daily closing price is higher than $4,811, which should signal a move higher over the following days. The $5,000 handle will be a key level to break to see a continuation of the upward trend. However, ETH is very close to the upper band and opportunities for long-term buys are found at the middle band (currently at $4,392) and the lower band (currently at $3,865).
The 4-hour chart for ETH is below and highlights a rejection of the upper band near $4,877, suggesting the market may take a further dive until support at the middle Bollinger band is reached ($4,740). A move below $4,740 will open up a test of the lower band at $4,603.
Cardano's ADA is set for the highest weekly gain since early August 2021 and the current weekly candle engulfs the last five weeks of price action, four of which saw losses for ADA. With the market bouncing from the middle Bollinger band at $2.03, a weekly close above $2.375 should open up further highs for Cardano's native token and should open up attempts at previous highs of $2.47 and $3.10.
The daily chart for ADA below shows that a Bollinger squeeze is in play and volatility is returning to the market, suggesting the price of ADA has a high likelihood of continuing the upward trend. Support is seen at $2.05 and $1.852. On November 9th, ADA saw the largest daily trading volume in two months and if voluem remains high, then it should provide the fuel needed to go even higher.
However, yesterday saw the price of ADA retreat from its high to close much lower, while still bullish, we'd want to see further bullish confirmation today with a close higher than $2.269.
Have a great week!
