Baboons are hungry for more

One of the reasons for this growth could be Hedera‘s growing social mentions and engagements. According to social media analytics firm LunarCrush, the number of social mentions for Hedera grew by 16% over the last week. Furthermore, the number of social engagements grew by 19.7% in the aforementioned period.
Not only that but the weighted sentiment around Hedera also grew. This indicated that the crypto community’s overall outlook towards HBAR was getting positive.
However, despite the success of some blue chip NFTs and an increasing positive sentiment for Hedera, there was trouble. HBAR’s NFTs failed to compete with other blockchains in terms of their NFT growth.
A roadblock on the road to recovery
As can be seen from the image below, Hedera still didn’t qualify as a strong competitor for other NFT collections. On the contrary, HBAR’s NFT collection had a long way to go before it could compete with major players in the market.
Moreover, there were other positives that could be considered as well. Hedera’s volume grew significantly over the past week. As can be seen below, Hedera’s volume went from 20 million to 35 million in the span of a few days.
Along with its volume, HBAR’s market cap continued to grow as well. However, Hedera’s development activity continued to decline during the same period, which could play against the growing numbers.
At the time of writing, HBAR had been trading at $0.0605 and had appreciated by 2.70% in the last 24 hours according to CoinMarketCap. However, its volume depreciated by 18.15% during the same time period. Its market cap appreciated by 3.07% as well, and at the time of press HBAR had captured 0.16% of the entire crypto market.
