‘Overvalued’ SUSHI Dumps 80% Ahead of Platform Migration – BeInCrypto


The DeFi meals farming frenzy seems to be freezing over as recently-hyped tokens start to dump and Ethereum transaction charges return to some state of normality. One of the most well liked tokens, SUSHI, is already in freefall as current analysis suggests it’s approach overvalued.

As crypto-asset markets proceed to retreat, those who pumped the toughest seem like dumping the quickest. Total market capitalization has slumped nearly 20% over the previous seven days since its 27-month excessive of round $400 billion on Sept 2.

DeFi belongings are taking the brunt of this market-wide correction, particularly the over-hyped food-themed token that promised ridiculous returns. As reported by BeInCrypto, six of the highest DeFi protocol tokens have shed 50% over the previous seven days.

Research Finds SUSHI Prices Way Overvalued

A newly-issued report by on-chain analytics agency Glassnode has taken a deep dive into the tokenomics of the Uniswap fork SushiSwap. In a nutshell, it acknowledged that the platform’s inflationary mannequin implies that big buying and selling volumes can be required to take care of excessive token costs.

SUSHI costs surged to prime $11 three days after the DeFi clone was launched in late August. The FOMO was palpable as yield farmers flocked to the Uniswap clone providing higher returns by itself liquidity pool tokens.

Prices started to retreat instantly, falling to round $6.20 earlier than the promise of a full good contract safety audit (which turned out to simply be a safety evaluate) lifted SUSHI costs again to round $8.50. Three days later SUSHI had misplaced nearly 50% of its worth once more.

SushiSwap went via a little bit of turbulence over the weekend when the proprietor and administrator, ‘Chef Nomi’ bought 2.5 million tokens that had been accrued via the 10% improvement share fund. Naturally, token costs dumped more durable afterward.

The subsequent handing over of the mission helm to Alameda Research and derivatives trade FTX CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried, has executed little to sluggish the sell-off.

At the time of writing, SUSHI tokens had been altering fingers for $2.20, a stoop of 80% since its all-time excessive simply over per week in the past.

SUSHI/USD – TradingView

The Glassnode report, penned by analyst Liesl Eichholz, delved into the tokenomics of this fishy token stating that the worth of protocol governance shouldn’t be understated, nonetheless, it’s troublesome to quantify as such yield farming incentives are largely pushed by hype.

The linear provide is predicated upon Ethereum’s present fee of roughly 6,500 blocks per day. This implies that there might be 326.6 million SUSHI circulating one 12 months after launch, and nearly 600 million after two years.

The SUSHI income share mannequin is predicated upon the connection between tokens minted and the 0.05% buyback reward quantity from buying and selling volumes. Newly minted tokens are distributed as rewards, nonetheless, they are going to dilute the worth of the holdings of present traders over time.

This inflationary mannequin has been integrated into the mission by design with the intention to encourage individuals to actively present liquidity, however these wishing to easily HODL might be diluted. Since the buyback reward is used to distribute newly minted SUSHI again to present holders, a specific amount of every day buying and selling quantity should be sustained to take care of a given worth.

SUSHI Trading Volumes vs. Price – Glassnode

Glassnode acknowledged that any worth above $10 is ‘preposterous’ and couldn’t be sustained for greater than a short time earlier than inflation causes it to plummet once more. It added that in actuality, a sustainable worth for SUSHI can be $0.31 assuming that SushiSwap captures a extra life like every day buying and selling quantity of $400 million.

According to Uniswap.data, the present every day quantity is a mere $50 million, making even Glassnode’s valuation seem too excessive. Eichholz added;

Due to hype and a lack of expertise concerning the token’s fundamentals, the SUSHI worth will doubtless stay greater than this sustainable level within the near-term, inflicting inflation.

With low buying and selling volumes and excessive costs, a whole bunch of hundreds of thousands of SUSHI might be added into circulation yearly she continued. These newly minted tokens won’t have their worth backed by cash truly flowing into the system.

If the alternative occurs the place SUSHI sees excessive volumes and low costs, inflation will lower and extra tokens can be purchased by the protocol than are being minted every day. This would exert deflationary stress and improve the worth of every SUSHI token.

In conclusion, the report famous that except buying and selling quantity grows extraordinarily excessive, or worth dips beneath the sustainable level, the potential for the worth of SUSHI to quickly lower is highest proper now, including that:

It will usually be extra worthwhile for traders to promote half of their SUSHI into ETH and turn out to be a liquidity supplier moderately than holding the complete worth in SUSHI and redeeming the 0.05% reward quantity.

SushiSwap Migration Imminent

The newest improvement within the SushiSwap saga is the upcoming migration away from Uniswap and onto its personal platform. This can even entail the transitioning to multi-signature wallets for governance, presumably managed by SUSHI whales, or ‘the community’ as the brand new boss places it:

1,000,000 SUSHI might be doled out for many who proceed to supply liquidity via migration, Bankman-Fried acknowledged.

The protocol nonetheless has over a billion {dollars} in whole worth locked, which is roughly 75% of Uniswap’s pool tokens in accordance with the Zippo dashboard.
