Nvidia shares up 15% in 5 days — Will AI crypto tokens follow?


The share price of Nvidia (NVDA), one of the biggest producers of graphics processing units (GPUs), has recovered by 15% this week, leading analysts to speculate whether “bottomed out” artificial intelligence (AI) crypto tokens will follow suit.

“This is absolutely insane,” trading resource The Kobeissi Letter declared in an April 27 post on X, while pointing out the major climb seen in Nvidia’s market cap within the past trading week:

“The stock has jumped from a low of $756 to $880+, adding ~$320 BILLION in market cap,” it added.

Even though AI crypto tokens have faced price drops across the board, analysts are hopeful that Nvidia’s strong performance will have a positive effect, as they claim was the case in the previous market cycle.

Pseudonymous crypto trader Crypto Stream explained in an April 26 post on X that his “base assumption” for investing in AI tokens revolves around the performance of Nvidia. Its anticipated Q1 2024 earnings report will be released publicly on May 22.

“Many TradFi investors are probably waiting for this data before making their next move. Don’t forget they felt a lot of FOMO when NVIDIA pumped non-stop,” they explained.

Meanwhile, Pseudonymous crypto trader CryptoGodJohn told their 668,100 X followers on April 27 that it “should be an exciting few weeks leading into the Nvidia earnings.” 

“A lot of AI coins looking bottomed out here,” CryptoGodJohn further added.
