Despite the launch of a new development-oriented group, NEAR has still had a good performance in the past week. According to a recent weekly update, NEAR completed 2.25 million transactions with an average of 751,293 transactions.
The network also saw a robust increase in the number of accounts as they jumped up to 316,894 (+17%).
Meanwhile, NEAR Daily posted a tweet about the top gainers on the protocol in the past week. REF continues to lead the chart as it registered 15.5% gains throughout the week.
It was followed by the NEAR token with 11.1%. The AURORA token completes the top three list with a 10.3% surge. It is important to note that NEAR was having a promising week already. Earlier on, according to LunarCrush, Alt Rank on the NEAR token dropped in the previous week.
These updates leave the NEAR token at $4.14 with a slight 0.8% dip in the past 24 hours. However, it still holds 7.75% gains from the past week according to CoinMarketCap.
However, there is a considerable drop in NEAR’s DeFi total value locked (TVL) in the past month.
According to DeFiLlama, NEAR’s TVL dropped by 10% within five days of entering August. The protocol had $285.09 million locked in at press time.
Ref Finance continued to dominate with $228.8 million and an 80.28% stronghold in the NEAR TVL.
Moreover, the network is continuing to show a falling pattern of the low trading volume. NEAR saw trading go as high as $800 million at the beginning of April.
