ApeCoin gained 15% on Wednesday amid growing investor interest
The token was accepted as a payment method by Gucci
APE remains supported above a breakout zone with an opportunity for further gains
ApeCoin APE/USD was the center of retail interest on Wednesday. The token rose more than 15%, with social media mentions growing. The gains were widespread across the crypto sector, suggesting that sentiment remains intact.
The gains in ApeCoin come amid good fundamentals supporting the token. Italian high-end fashion house Gucci announced the acceptance of ApeCoin for purchases in the US. The move allows Gucci to become the first major brand in the US to accept payments in APE. Customers will be allowed to make in-store purchases with APE BitPay.
The latest announcement increases the utility of ApeCoin’s token. The blockchain also has the Otherside metaverse project in the pipeline. Once the project becomes a reality, ApeCoin will hit new levels. For now, we believe APE has more upside potential, and investors should consider buying.
