The platform and the governance token [GMT] went on a tear since making its first appearance in March 2022.
Despite losing the path for some time, the protocol seems to gather strength to unite players.
Just hold on, we’re going home
At the time of writing, the move-to-earn gaming platform was trending within the market. Additionally, STEPN’s sneaker NFTs saw a significant uptick in demand as of 25 August.
In fact, more than 4.6k shoes were minted at the time of writing as per data from Dune Analytics. The dashboard, given below further showcased the aforementioned statistic along with the number of active users.
Indeed, it saw some significant growth aspects, especially, after an important update.
As per the press release, “without HP, the sneakers have an infinite supply and would never be worn out which is a recipe for inflation and eventual price drop.”
The amount of shoe mint certainly rose as compared to a week ago. Continuing the same bullish narrative, even a majority of holders stood against the idea of selling their GMT tokens. This was evident by the fact that 24 August marked the month’s biggest withdrawal.
According to Dune Analytics’ chart, over 18M GMT (∼8.7K ETH) were withdrawn in a day.
What’s the irony?
Despite the increase in sneaker sales, daily users on STEPN remained stagnant. While existing users still dominate the trend, the new users chart barely saw any significant growth.
Furthermore, the native GMT has remained somewhat unchanged over the past week. On 25 August GMT traded just shy of the $0.80 mark and stood at $0.78 with a 1% drop in the last 24 hours.
So should you invest in the token now or wait and watch for a while until the dust settles? Only time would tell.
