The decline of Bitcoin price to $61,000 on Thursday, alongside anticipation surrounding the upcoming halving, are two catalysts responsible for the market-wide correction in crypto. MANTA price could experience further losses in response to selling pressure from airdrop recipients cashing in their holdings across exchange platforms. 

MANTA holders need to watch out for a rise in the token’s supply on exchanges, this could signal that there is likely profit-taking by investors. A total of 31% of MANTA’s supply is unlocked as of Thursday, April 18. 

The modular blockchain’s price is $1.767 on Binance, down nearly 4% on Thursday.
