On the chart, Saitama was following a recovery path, similar to other altcoins rebounding from 24 February lows. However, volatility in the market seemed to be on the higher end. The price spiked by 19%, 25%, and 12% on 28 February, 2 March, and 3 March, respectively. These last couple of pumps were made soon after Saitama reenabled the swap function on SaitaMask after rooting out some glitches.

For the moment though, Saitama’s price was moving sideways in a risk-off broader market. However, the price may best its February peak of $0.00000001940 should its uptrend continue over the weekend.
