It’s a mixed bag on the network front
PancakeSwap recorded an uptick in some of its key performance indicators. Since dipping to a monthly low on 11 February, the protocol’s trading fees jumped 47% until press time, the data from Token Terminal revealed.
This growth was fueled by the increasing number of users on the decentralized exchange (DEX), which rose 21% over the last 1o days.
On the other hand, the DeFi protocol failed to show significant growth in its total value locked (TVL). The metric was yet to reach its pre-FTX levels.
In spite of the above downside, the DEX managed to storm into the list of top revenue-generating crypto participants. At the time of writing, its cumulative revenue in the last 30 days stood at $3.3 million, above chains like Polygon [MATIC] and BNB.
Whales are eating CAKE?
Small and big whales showed interest in CAKE. As per Santiment, the number of addresses holding between 1000 to 1 million tokens saw a significant increase in the month of February. The accumulation by large addresses was a bullish signal for CAKE’s price.
How much are 1,10,100 CAKEs worth today?
The token found support from retail investors as well. The daily active addresses more than doubled in the last 10 days.
The 30-day MVRV ratio entered the positive zone at the time of writing, implying that most holders would make profits if they sold their tokens at the current price. This was corroborated by the sharp increase in the daily transaction volume in profit.
CAKE’s price grew by more than 10% over the previous week. With a spurt in accumulation activity, investors can expect further gains in the days to come.
