However, what was encouraging was the long lower wick, pointing to welcomed demand by the close of the trading day. This push was clear the next day when prices closed higher, with bulls extending gains over the weekend.

Whether the June 13 plunge marked the end of CRV woes remains to be seen. For now, the sharp 45% recovery from last week’s lows and the expansion in Ethereum prices could create demand, further propelling CRV to the $0.40 mark.

Curve To Change Token Emission As Erogov’s Bad Debt Cleared

The analyst thinks something big is in the pipeline for Curve Finance as a protocol and CRV as the primary token priming platform. In mid-August, the token’s inflation rate would fall from 20.37% to as low as 6.34%. This reduction would be primarily because of the protocol’s shift to CRV distribution.

From August 12, Curve will automatically cease allocating CRV to the core team for vesting. Instead, gauges will distribute the token directly to the community, drastically slashing inflation.

Curve gauges determine how CRV is distributed to various liquidity pools. Through gauges, Curve Finance remains decentralized. This is because token holders can now vote on how much the liquidity providers of a given pool can receive CRV as an incentive.
