Recently published CryptoLeaks blog post alleged that Ava Labs, the creator of the Avalanche blockchain, was involved in paying lawyers to “attack and harm crypto organizations and projects that might compete with Ava Labs or Avalanche in some way.”

The allegations stirred up controversy. In wake of that, new data from Santiment revealed that Avalanche rose atop the list of top-trending keywords across crypto platforms.  

According to the blockchain analytics platform, in the early hours of the trading session on 29 August, Avalanche’s native coin, AVAX, traded at a 7-week low, after which it rallied by over 7.5%.

As of this writing, the coin traded at $20.16, up 13% in the last 24 hours. So how has the coin performed in the past 24 hours?

Day traders are market movers

Up by 13% in the last 24 hours, the AVAX coin has posted double-digit gains in a market where leading coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum failed to log many gains within the same period.

During the trading session of 29 August, trading volume for AVAX coins rallied by 67%.

With $599,668,179 registered in trading volume in the last 24 hours, this was up by 30% within that time.

On a 4-hour chart, buying pressure for AVAX shot up gradually. Positioned above the center (0.0) line, the dynamic line of the coin’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) was spotted in an uptrend at 0.07 at press time.

Also, the coin’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) rested above the 50-neutral region in an uptrend at 52.

In addition, AVAX’s Money Flow Index also embarked on an uptrend at press time and was pegged at 58.

Price movements on a 24-hour chart, however, told a different story. In the last 24 hours, buying pressure for AVAX had weakened.

As a result, the coin’s CMF posted a negative value of -0.18. Further, the coin’s RSI and MFI marked their respective spots at 39 and 20, revealing massive coin distribution in the last 24 hours.
