Monero (XMR) prices rose 9.0% to $160.30 since the beginning of October. This may sound not too much impressive when compared to Bitcoin and some other altcoins that added 20-30% for the period. But, XMR prices rose above the resistance at $150.00 and successfully retested it. Technically, this means that the altcoin has no hurdles to rise to $175.00. Monero developers are also contributing to the rise as they have recently launched the latest graphical user interface (GUI) software compatibility with the cutting-edge macOS ARM devices. Monero community is scheduled to meet in Chicago on November 2. If the Monero team would be able to surprise its crypto community with some extra development effort it may charge the altcoin to rise to $175.00.
