This was showcased by Santiment’s data, which indicated that the weighted sentiment for Avalanche was overwhelmingly negative, implying that the negative comments for Avax outweighed the positive ones at press time.
AVAX’s price continues to rise
The declining progress of Avalanche on the social front, however, did not impede AVAX’s growth in terms of price. Since testing $0.406 support level on 10 June, the price of the AVAX token grew by 45.82% and was trading at $14.64 at the time of writing. Over the last few weeks, the price of AVAX has spotted multiple high highs and high lows and has managed to establish a bullish trend.
The RSI indicator was at 54.91, implying that the momentum was with the buyers. The CMF at 0.14 painted a positive picture as well, implying that buying pressure was prevailing for AVAX.
One of the ways in which Avalanche could continue to sustain AVAX’s growth would be the burning of AVAX tokens. According to data provided by Avalanche Explorer, the protocol burned a total of 2.5M tokens at press time.
When a transaction happens on the Avalanche network, it burns the transaction fee, sending it to an irretrievable address. This burning mechanism has several purposes, such as reducing inflation and enhancing the scarcity of AVAX tokens as time progresses.

Artemis’ data indicated that the TVL of the protocol grew materially over the last few weeks. One of the largest contributors to the growing TVL on the Avalanche network was the increasing DEX volumes on Avalanche which also surged in tandem with Avalanche’s TVL.
