Although there have not been any official updates about USN’s launch date, it appears that NEAR could break out in anticipation of the news.

Important to note that the asset should not close below $15 as this could cause a negative price movement which could negate the optimistic outlook. This crucial support level can be breached by traders, which could lead to downward pressure on coins. In such circumstances, prices may fall as low as $14.50 or even $12.50.
