dApps contribute to rising TVL
At the time of writing, Cardano’s TVL was at $58.63. Its value fell by 3.02% in the last 24 hours, according to Defi Llama. However, despite the figures of the last 24 hours, the TVL spike in November still stood significant. Furthermore, it could be attributed to the success of various dApps and DEXes on the Cardano network.
For instance, one of the most popular DEXes on Cardano, Miniswap, witnessed a substantial growth in the number of unique active addresses and transactions. Over last week, the number of unique active addresses on Miniswap grew by 2.6%. The number of transactions increased by 11.97% during the same period.
According to data provided by DappRadar, the volume on the DEX increased by 38.6% over the last week. The growth of other dApps, such as SundaeSwap and Wingriders, also contributed to Cardano‘s growing TVL.
Taking a closer look at on-chain metrics
Cardano’s developmental activity increased tremendously over the last few weeks. This indicated that the number of contributions being made by its team on GitHub had increased. Thus, there was a possibility of upgrades coming to the network.
However, even though Cardano appeared to be working on its technology and improved its presence in the DeFi space, ADA suffered.
Notably, ADA’s volume declined from 640 million to 159 million in the last month. Its velocity plummeted as well, implying that the frequency at which ADA was being exchanged amongst addresses had declined.
At the time of writing, ADA was trading at $0.3041. Its price had decreased by 2.85% in the last 24 hours, according to data from CoinMarketCap. Its market capitalization decreased by 2.84% during the same time as well.
