Can ATOM move on from its past?

At the time of writing, data from Santiment showed that not much had been accomplished on the development end of the Cosmos blockchain. As can be seen below, development activity stood at 52.12, which indicated that fewer developments were taking place on the network.

Furthermore, the development activity also witnessed a sizeable drop since the beginning of April. Moving on to the development activity contributors count, that too stood at 11. This wasn’t a great sign for the Cosmos blockchain either.

A look at ATOM’s market cap dominance also painted a gloomy picture for the chain. Although ATOM’s price witnessed a rise, its market cap dominance stayed at 0.263 which wasn’t exactly the best scenario for Cosmos.

Furthermore, data from Staking Rewards also showed that the number of stakers also witnessed a significant drop in the last seven days. However, at press time, there was a slight improvement in the number. But this was definitely a negative sign for the altcoin.

A ray of hope here

Despite the disappointing front presented by Cosmos, ATOM investors could be in for a surprise. At the time of writing, ATOM’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was moving toward the neutral zone. This indicated that recovery could be on its way for the altcoin.

Furthermore, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator showed that at press time, the signal line was above the MACD line. Although the two lines were below the zero line, the position of the MACD line seemed to be ready to move in the upward direction, which could be an indication of a bullish crossover.

Additionally, the Awesome Oscillator (AO) also managed to flash green at press time.
