Spell Token (SPELL), a decentralised finance (DeFi) platform token, has plunged in value since the start of the year.

Trading at $0.0008363 on 21 October 2022, it is over 98% below its all-time high of $0.0751, achieved on 16 November 2021. According to DeFi LIama, Spell Token’s total value locked (TVL) has also crashed to $373.7m from a high of $6.42bn, hit on 5 January 2022.

Will the SPELL token recover its lost momentum? This article rounds up recent news and developments surrounding the token and carries out a SPELL cryptocurrency price analysis — together, they could help you form a plausible SPELL crypto price prediction.

What is Spell Token?

Abracadabra.Money is a decentralised lending platform that has two tokens. The native token is Spell Token (SPELL), whereas Magic Internet Money (MIM), a USD-pegged stablecoin, is used to provide loans to users.

Abracadabra’s stablecoin MIM can be used in the same way as any other conventional stablecoin. The protocol accepts interest-bearing tokens (ibTKNs) in exchange for MIMs.

For instance, users can give collateral in a variety of interest-bearing crypto assets, including yvUSDT and yvUSDC, enabling users to borrow MIM tokens. Users can get yvUSDT and yvUSDC by depositing the stablecoins USDT and USDC in yield-generating capital pools on DeFi platform Yearn Finance.

Additionally, Abracadabra provides farming opportunities in which users can stake their liquidity provider (LP) tokens to farm SPELL tokens. This method is used to maintain high liquidity on specific pairings. On Ethereum, farming is presently available for ETH-SPELL and MIM-3CRV LP tokens. 

The primary function of Spell Token is for staking. In return, the platform users receive reward tokens called Staked Spell (sSPELL) tokens.

sSPELL tokens grant holders voting rights on the platform and a claim to interest generated on MIM lent by Abracadabra. According to the protocol, 75% of the interest fees are used to purchase SPELL tokens awarded to sSPELL holders. 

Spell Token’s maximum supply is 196 billion, 30% of which is for team members; another 63% of SPELL tokens are given over to global farming incentives, with a number of liquidity pools.

The outstanding 7% of total SPELL was allocated through an initial decentralised exchange offering (DEX) on Uniswap (UNI) and Sushiswap (SUSHI). SPELL has a 10-year halving model, whereby the rewards distributed are halved annually.

Spell Token news: Sharp fall amid massive controversy

Spell Token experienced a massive bear market in January 2022 due to a major scandal around Frog Nation. DeFi platforms such as Abracadabra.Money, Wonderland and Popsicle Finance are all part of the Frog Nation consortium of blockchain initiatives managed by developer Daniele Sestagalli.

In late January, tokens linked to Frog Nation witnessed a sell-off following reports that the treasury manager of DeFi project Wonderland was allegedly Michael Patryn, an alleged former convict and co-founder of the fraudulent and now defunct Canadian crypto exchange QuadrigaCX.

An account apparently run by Sestagalli later tweeted that he was aware of Patryn’s past:

“Today allegations about our team member @0xSifu (Patryn) will circulate. I want everyone to know that I was aware of this and decided that the past of an individual doesn’t determine their future. I choose to value the time we spent together without knowing his past more than anything.”

Ashwath Balakrishnan, VP of research, wrote about the effects of the scandal in a report for blockchain research firm Delphi Digital:

“Naturally, this didn’t go down well with the community and people began to lose confidence in the project. MIM briefly broke its peg but recovered quite quickly. On 28 January, nearly $1.4bn of MIM changed hands over Curve, most of which seems to have been holders selling into the Curve pool.”

Wonderland’s community quickly voted to remove Patryn as their treasury manager, but the damage was already done and Wonderland’s TIME token fell by more than 50% in the last week of January. 

With Abracadabra’s SPELL token seeing a similar slump, the platform released a clarification to reassure investors and its community.

“Firstly, 0xSifu was never, at any time, directly or indirectly managing the Abracadabra Treasury,” the organisation said a blog post, which has since been removed.

“During the past week, the Abracadabra contracts have been pressure tested and the system that we have put in place has proven to be extremely resilient. Large amounts of liquidity were pulled by large players, and many large Abracadabra positions were unwound. Despite all of this, the MIM peg has consistently and quickly rebounded to levels where trading has been sustainable.”

It’s important to note that a day before the revelations about its treasury manager’s past, a merger between Wonderland and Abracadabra was also proposed. But since the news came to light, Wonderland is on the verge of closure.

Despite the majority of Wonderland’s community voting against the project winding down, founder Sestagalli has signalled its end.

Writing in a tweet, he said: “Wonderland experiment is coming to an end. It is clear from the vote that the community is divided. The core and heart of Wonderland is still the community. If we cannot find agreement on wether [sic] to continue or not, it means that we failed.” 

Investor confidence and community morale within Frog Nation projects have hit rock bottom following the scandal. The sell-off in Abracadabra.Money’s Spell Token shows no signs of easing, with the Spell Token price down 96% year-to-date.

The massive decline in the token’s value can be attributed to the controversies surrounding Frog Nation. Around three months ago, prolific DeFi developer Andre Cronje – a former partner of Daniele Sestagalli – decided to leave the organisation, and announced that he was leaving the crypto space for good.

The loss of interest in SPELL falls in line with that of other leading DeFi apps. In the past few months, the TVL of all DeFi applications has crashed from over $250bn to less than $70bn.

The collapse of Terra and its ecosystem has also affected the sell-off of the SPELL token, fuelling scepticism in DeFi projects. 

SPELL/USD price analysis

Based on the earliest available price data on the SPELL chart from 2021, the SPELL token price spiked from $0.0006 on 17 August 2021 to $0.0345 on 3 November – a massive increase of 5,650% in less than three months. 

The bullish momentum continued further, and SPELL reached $0.0751 on 16 November. The market sentiment was very bullish during November 2021. For example, Ether (ETH), the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, reached its all-time high of $4,891 on 16 November 2021.

However, after the rally, a retracement brought the SPELL price to $0.0239 on 31 December 2021, a decline of more than 68%.

At the start of 2022, the broader cryptocurrency market was bearish. Moreover, the controversy surrounding the involvement of Patryn caused the SPELL token to decline from $0.0228 on 1 January 2022 to $0.0052 on 28 January, a fall of more than 78%.

The downtrend continued, and the SPELL token price plummeted to $0.0035 on 24 February 2022. It further declined to a 90-day low of $0.0032 on 14 March 2022.

After a long period of bearishness, the SPELL token price finally gained momentum and reached a 30-day high of $0.006297 on 4 April 2022, but then fell to the $0.001 level in mid-May and continued to trade around that price point for close to two months.

Following a broader uplift across cryptocurrency markets, the SPELL token rose close to 20% on 15 and 16 August.

As of 21 October 2022, SPELL was trading at $0.0008363 and had a market capitalisation of $86.5m, making it the 251st-largest cryptocurrency in the world, according to CoinMarketCap.

It is essential to do your research.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
