AAVE on the chain
Additionally, daily active addresses and new demand for AAVE dropped drastically. As per data from Santiment, last month witnessed the count of unique addresses that traded fall by 83%. Likewise, the count of new addresses that joined the network daily declined by 63%.
However, within that same period, AAVE recorded a drought of whale transactions. Data from Santiment revealed that in the last 30 days, only nine whale transactions exceeded $100,000.
Moreover, whale transactions of over $1 million were almost non-existent within the period under review – only one transaction was completed in the last 30 days.
Furthermore, holding AAVE has been significantly unprofitable for its investors in the last month. In fact, this has been the situation since the beginning of the year. As of this writing, AAVE’s Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) posted a negative value of -77.57%. This showed that sell-offs at their current price would only return losses on such an investment.
With a non-stop decline in price, investors’ sentiment remained negative at press time.
