  • The social engagement metric of Polkadot increased 
  • The number of active addresses too registered a spike, however, DOT’s volume went down

Despite the FUD surrounding the crypto market, DOT’s prices grew markedly over the last week. This could be attributed to either the interest generated by Polkadot through its nomination pools or the increasing level of work done to improve its users’ security.

According to data provided by Messari, DOT’s prices appreciated by 1.18% regardless of last week’s bearish shackles.

However, the sentiment against Polkadot was extremely volatile. As can be seen from the image below, the weighted sentiment for Polkadot oscillated from positive to negative throughout the week.

Another avenue where Polkadot witnessed growth was the number of active accounts on the network, which witnessed a huge spike over the last few days. However, it later went on a southward journey.

Not without some setbacks

Well, not all was well for DOT. Polkadot could not register sufficient growth in terms of volume over the last 30 days. The volume decreased from 300 million to 126 million, according to data provided by Santiment. Its market cap too noted a significant decline, as evidenced by the chart below.

All in all, it appears that most factors seem to favor Polkadot during this bear market. However, it remains to be seen whether DOT would be able to pull through this crypto winter.

That said, at the time of writing, Polkadot was trading at $5.35. Its price slumped by 0.84% in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
