  • GMX moves to Arbitrum, threatening Avalanche.
  • Decreasing sentiment, declining TVL & NFT trades for Avalanche.

According to the latest data from Artemis, the majority of GMX’s activity has shifted from Avalanche [AVAX] to Arbitrum. This shift has raised concerns about the potential impact on Avalanche, as GMX is currently the largest perp by market cap and outperforms many of its competitors in terms of Total Value Locked (TVL).

Avalanche gets impacted

On one hand, the negative sentiment surrounding Avalanche, as indicated by Santiment’s data, suggested that the overall outlook of the AVAX token in the crypto community was negative. This caused a decline in the network’s growing TVL, which stood at $970.16 million at press time.

Additionally, the overall volume of the AVAX token declined. According to Santiment’s data, the overall volume for AVAX fell from 1.2 billion to 3.14 million. The number of NFT trades on the network also fell, suggesting an overall lack of interest.

However, there were some positive developments as well, one of them being the decreasing volatility of the AVAX token. A decline in volatility could attract some investors who are seeking stability for their portfolios.

It’s also worth noting that despite the negative conditions for Avalanche, the number of stakers on the network grew by 21.5% in the last month, according to Staking Rewards. The number of stakers on the network was 65,988 at the time of writing. This suggested that there is still interest in the network, though its future remained uncertain.

It’s important to note that GMX’s move from Avalanche to Arbitrum could be due to various reasons, including the increasing popularity of the Arbitrum network and its ability to handle larger volumes of transactions efficiently. This shift could pose a threat to Avalanche, but it’s also possible that the network could recover and continue to grow.
