Sewar Pass NFT collection saw more than $60 million in volume, amounting to $1.5 million in fees on OpenSea, which was a commendable achievement.
Interestingly, X Marketplace revealed that its fees remained at $300,000 for the same volume, out of which, 50% will be burned in ApeCoin [APE].
Huge accomplishment to see $60M+ in volume for @yugalabs Sewer Pass
That amounts to $1.5M in fees on OS
On X it's only $300K for the same volume and half that would get burned in @apecoin

Reasons behind the decline
A look at Santiment’s chart revealed quite a few factors that might have played a role in APE’s price plummet. APE’s exchange outflow registered a decline over the last week, which was a development in the bears’ favor.
Moreover, APE’s MVRV Ratio decreased considerably over the last few days, which too was a negative signal. Its velocity also followed the MVRV Ratio and declined last week.
Surprisingly, despite the price plummet, APE’s supply held by top addresses spiked, reflecting whales’ confidence in APE. WhaleStats also revealed increased whale activity, as APE was on the list of the most used smart contracts among the top 100 Ethereum whales in the last 24 hours.

Interestingly, APE was on the list of the top NFT projects in terms of Galaxy Score, which was a bullish signal. Let’s check APE’s daily chart to find out if a price pump is around the corner.
Well, things did not look in favor of the buyers as most of the metrics supported the bears. The MACD displayed a bearish crossover.
APE’s Money Flow Index (MFI) declined and was headed toward the neutral mark.
The Bollinger Bands revealed that APE’s price was not in a very high volatility zone, which decreases the chances of an unprecedented surge in the near term.
Nonetheless, the Chaikin Money Flow was slightly bullish as it went up toward the neutral mark.
