The coin has also seen decent gains this week as it recovers most of the losses reported in the middle of May. But this bull run is losing steam and a correction appears imminent. Here are some important points:

Polkadot (DOT) – Price prediction
It’s not the first time DOT has done a “fake out” this month. In fact, at the beginning of May, the altcoin tested $10 once more only to be rejected sharply at $10.5. We don’t think conditions in the market have changed that much. In that case, DOT will still fail to surge past $10.
Besides, the coin has already gained a lot from its May lows. Although the bullish momentum has been good for DOT bulls, at some point it was expected to retreat. DOT will likely retrace the $7.35 support before it tries to rise again. This will represent a loss of around 27% from the current price.
The price will also be around 70% lower than DOT’s highest price in 2022. However, if bulls can somehow manage to find enough demand to push above $10.5, then DOT will likely push further towards $16.
Why DOT is still a decent buy
The recent price drop in most altcoins has been painful. But this does not change the long-term outlook. Coins like DOT offer incredible utility and are backed by very serious projects.
It is likely that DOT will return above $20 somewhere this year. That would still be a 2x multiple from the current price today. There is therefore so much upside.
