RenProtocol has announced that they will be shutting down the Ren 1.0 network in the near future and are rushing to develop the Ren 2.0 bridge. The truth behind this move is that RenProtocol was actually owned by Alameda Research, which is now to crypto heaven. Due to this shadowy ownership, the dev team is making it impossible from 20th December to bridge ren assets, effectively losing the support of every holder. Their decision to prioritize their own interests over those of their supporters, particularly those who don’t frequent crypto forums like Twitter, is unacceptable.

How to Short Ren– REN?
Altough ren Assets are not the same as the REN token, this is bad news for the token. This makes it attractive to speculate on further decline of REN price. To short Ren Protocol– REN, you will need to follow these steps:
- Open an account on ByBit that allows short selling.
- Deposit funds into your account. Keep in mind that short selling typically requires a margin account, which means you will need to have a certain amount of money available to borrow the REN you plan to short.
- Find the REN ticker symbol and locate the current price.
- Place a sell order for the number of REN you want to short at the current market price. This will create a short position in your account.
- Monitor the price of REN and the value of your short position. If the price decreases, your short position will increase in value.
- Close your short position by buying back the same number of REN you sold short. This will effectively “cover” your short position.
