Bittensor (TAO) Price Plummets Over 12% Amid Suspected Wallet Hack


The decentralized Artificial Intelligence platform Bittensor (TAO) abruptly stopped operations, probably due to a security attack on users’ wallets. This suspicious activity triggered an over 12% drop in price in the last 24 hours.

TAO was trading in a consistent downtrend, revealing a major decline in the past few weeks. It traded close to its 52-week low mark of $240 and was under pressure.

Until the token does not retain the $270 mark, the selloff might continue, leading to further decline.

At press time, Bittensor token traded at $240.90, with an intraday decline of 11.36%, reflecting bearishness on the chart. It has a monthly return ratio of -360% and -43.49% yearly, reflecting a downtrend.

The pair of TAO /BTC was at 0.0000308 BTC, and the market cap was $121.59 Million. Analysts are neutral and suggest that the TAO price may continue to lose gains and would retest the $200 mark ahead.

Could TAO Resist the Selloff at Around $240?

According to Watchmaker, a moderator on Bittensor’s Discord, the blockchain will run safely for 24 hours.

TAO was trading in a downtrend, below the key moving averages, signifying the seller dominance.

Amidst the negative sentiments, the price action showed a follow-on decline. The token failed to hold the gains, resulting in a panic selloff. Sellers added short positions until it stayed below the 20-day EMA mark, which would unlock the doors toward the $220 mark.

In his X post, @Dippy.eth indicated that the Bittensor token looks weak and took a big hit.
