Apart from network activity, Artemis’ data revealed that the blockchain’s TVL also gained upward momentum over the last few weeks. While this happened, BNB’s weekly chart turned green like most other cryptos, thanks to the bullish market condition. However, things changed as its daily chart registered a decline.
BNB Chain’s development is a key factor
BNB’s weekly report mentioned that the blockchain’s weekly average users remained above the 4-million-mark last week, which was commendable. Its weekly transactions exceeded 22 million. While BNB’s average daily active users crossed 1 million, its daily transactions reached 3.82 million. Not only that, but the blockchain’s fees also remained pretty low last week. These metrics clearly suggest massive usage of blockchain.

A look at BNB Chain’s on-chain metrics suggested that the declining trend might continue. Negative sentiment around BNB spiked in the last few days.
