A look at Avalanche’s subnet stats

As per the tweet, a sharp rise was seen in AVAX’s daily active addresses, which is positive as it indicates increased adoption of the blockchain. Additionally, the total number of Avalanche subnets reached 59, while the number of validators stood at 1281.

In the last seven days, the token also processed over 14 million transactions. Thanks to the transactions, Avalanche’s gas usage last week reached 6.39 trillion. 

AVAX staking on the rise

Not only in terms of daily active addresses, staking also noted growth. At the time of writing, AVAX’s staking market capitalization stood at $3,735,172,558, with a staking ratio of 59%, as per Staking Rewards

However, not everything was perfect, as Avalanche witnessed a decline in quite a few areas as well. For instance, Artemis’ chart pointed out that AVAX’s TVL declined sharply over the last month.

A decline in TVL means that the overall value of crypto assets deposited in DeFi protocols has sunk. A similar trend of decline was also noted in terms of Avalanche’s DEX volume.

On-chain performance remained decent

Though TVL and DEX volumes declined, Avalanche’s development activity increased sharply. This was a result of the Avalanche X-Chain Explorer, which allows users to analyze all X-Chain activities, including transactions, assets, UTXOs, blocks, and more.

Apart from development activity, AVAX’s Binance funding rate was relatively high, reflecting its demand in the derivatives market. AVAX’s weighted sentiment also improved considerably over the last week.

Avalanche’s price action was troublesome

As per CoinMarketCap, AVAX’s price has declined marginally over the last week. However, in the last 24 hours alone, AVAX’s price went down by more than 2%. At press time, it was trading at $14.68, with a market capitalization of over $4.8 billion.

However, a look at AVAX’s daily chart pointed out quite a few bearish indicators. 

Realistic or not, here’s AVAX market cap in BTC’s terms

The Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon revealed that the 20-day EMA was below the 55-day EMA. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) followed a sideways path. AVAX’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was also substantially low, which looked bearish.

Nonetheless, Avalanche’s MACD displayed the possibility of a bullish crossover, which could turn things in AVAX’s favor in the near term.
