Why Theta Fuel coin is going up

Theta fuel coin has been soaring even though the spike in most of the other cryptocurrencies is stalling. The major reason for the rise in Theta currencies is the upcoming release of Mainnet 3.0, which is scheduled to happen on June 30. The update will include tokens’ economics update, transaction fee and gas fee adjustment, and Tfuel burning. Theta has mentioned that the release of the key protocol will see the introduction of TFUEL burning and network transaction fees and smart contract fees burn. This would take the burned TFUEL out of circulation.

Given the nature of its project and the real-life problem it's solving, there's a high likelihood that TFUEL will rise higher.
