Whys is HBAR price up today?
Hedera’s native token was pumped on multiple occasions last month and early August following key partnerships and adoption efforts with major mainstream players. These included partnerships with South Korea multinational automakers Hyundai and Kia, which introduced an AI-enabled solution for tracking supply chain carbon emissions.

The adoption of HBAR across these companies saw its price rise to its highest price since May. Profit taking took bulls back to lows of $0.56, but bulls are looking to reclaim the upper hand. The gains come amid new buy pressure for HBAR following the Federal Reserve’s FedNow support for Dropp Inc, a Hedera-powered platform. Dropp is now on the list of service providers for the Fed program.
As CoinJournal recently reported, FedNow was launched to offer banks and credit unions access to instant payments. Hedera, on the other hand, is a decentralised public network based on the Hashgraph algorithm.
