AAVE V3 has managed to gain an audience after a period of four months since its launch. The network’s operations are also witnessing rapid growth.
However, the same cannot be said for the native token’s performance, as it is in desperate need of recovery.
AAVE sticks to its downtrend
After hitting its all-time high (ATH) in May 2021, AAVE began its journey of fall. As of 27 July, the DeFi token stood 87.09% below its all-time high. This, after falling from $412 to trade at $81.7 at the time of writing.
Its recent attempt at making a recovery seems to be failing as well since the altcoin dropped by 14.6% in the last six days.
Although this came after AAVE registered a rally worth more than 100.5%, the altcoin is still no closer to where it should be.
In the micro timeframe, the token appears to be in an uptrend, However, on a macro lens, AAVE is still in a downtrend and is also gradually losing the buying pressure it had which brought the cryptocurrency back above the $100 mark this week.
This is a matter of concern for all investors. But investors who bought AAVE at any price above $200 are more concerned since they have been facing losses for the longest time.
Furthermore, approximately 73% of the addresses bought their holdings above $200. And, only 27% of them were in profit back in July 2021.
The presence of investors in profits increased once again around September, but since then, it has been a non-stop journey of falling down.
As of 27 July, 82.5% of the addresses were in deep losses. And, the figure can jump back to zero if AAVE can rally by 674.5% to mark a new all-time high.
However, in order to do that, the altcoin will need high volatility along with a bullish market. The latter is an absolute necessity because if volatility increases during a bearish market, the price swings will push AAVE farther below the $100 mark.
AAVE Slowly Climbs To $109, Resistance At $113 Looms
AAVE shows that the price is steadily rising as the coin’s bullish streak makes noise in the market.
- AAVE price is raging bullish today with its steady climb to $109 resistance level
- The coin faces hurdle at $113.50
- AAVE/USD pair support is spotted at $97.91
The AAVE/USD price saw a boost of 12.02% compared to the figures yesterday as the market spikes to $109.99 from yesterday’s $105.
AAVE Resistance Spotted At $113.50
According to CoinMarketCap, AAVE has plunged by 0.18% as it trades at $109.87 as of this writing. The token’s price faces resistance at $113.50 with the bulls trying to breach the target level. On the flip side, the market has spotted some support at $97.91 as the bulls were able to restore the token’s price up after it dropped below this range.
AAVE is currently trading right above the $109 zone, as the bulls managed to push the price up. The 24-hour TVL for the coin sits at $508 million with a current market cap of $1.53 billion.
AAVE’s daily chart shows a dramatic and robust upswing seen in the past 24 hours. In fact, the market was able to reach a high of $113.50 before it faced some gigantic selling pressure that caused the price to plunge. However, the bulls were able to push the price shooting above the $97.91 market, and it now trades near its ATH of $109.99.
AAVE Tries To Retest Above Resistance
The market is largely optimistic and is set to skyrocket in the near term as the bulls are able to push the price up. MACD looks extremely bullish with it line overshooting the signal like. RSI also shows its bullish steak as it trades at 62.50.
With the bulls pushing the price up after every dip, AAVE price shows that the market is swerving for an uptrend. It’s all looking positive for Aave with the coin trading within the range of $109.99 to $113.50, with the bulls not able to move past $113.50. Currently, the market has locked in some strong foothold at $97.91, which acts as support line.
AAVE price is looking positive with bulls pushing the price higher despite the massive selling pressure. More so, the market is hoping to retest at the key resistance of $113.50 but the bulls will have to regroup to enable a breach above that level.

AAVE: Aftermath of GHO stablecoin approval and V3 kick off
Developments around the open-source DeFi protocol, AAVE looks like a non-stop activity. In July, the community agreed to launch GHO, its own stablecoin. Now, AAVE has proposed something new.
This time, the community has requested its voting and governance community to approve retroactive funding for AAVE version 3 (V3).
So how much is AAVE looking at, and what exactly is the project trying to achieve?
Breaking it down
According to the request, the funding aims to strengthen the Aave ecosystem and develop essential features on the AAVE V3.
DeFi aggregator, DeFillama data showed that the V3 has been performing well of late.
Based on the information, AAVE V3 had contributed $1.67 billion to the overall Total Value Locked (TVL) of AAVE.
This supply has helped the Aave protocol hold onto its third position with TVL now worth $7.42 billion.
With seven chains on it, it may seem that AAVE’s recent activities may potentially displace Lido Finance [LDO] off the second position.
At press time, AAVE had registered a 5.20% increase in TVL over the last 24 hours. What else did AAVE mention with regards to the recent funding request?
Aave proposed that its Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) approve separate sums of $15 million and $1.6 million for work incurred and audit, respectively, to facilitate the development.
The proposal noted the advancement and success of V3 would be an excellent development for other versions inclusive.
Layer-two (L2) network improvement, high efficiency, and isolation modes have been the major factors for the protocol. According to the proposal, integrating these features will allow seamless use of different networks on the protocol system. Aave said,
“V3 has also seen demand for stable Efficiency Mode (eMode), with proposals for new asset listings such as this one for FRAX continually taking advantage of Aave V3’s capital efficiency. In light of recent significant crypto market events, risk management features such as isolation mode have also proven to be prescient”
As for the DeFi ecosystem, Aave believes retroactive funding and V3 advancements would drive innovation. At press time, there had been some response from the Aave community, with many responding positively to the request with signs of live funding very likely.
In light of the request, AAVE had already gained 10.31% from its previous day’s price. Another thing that followed the update was a massive volume influx—a 137.98% uptick in the last 24 hours.
Here’s what you might be missing about AAVE’s latest ‘push’ on the charts
AAVE’s price action has finally broken through its descending resistance after struggling to find some directional footing over the last few days. The move came after the protocol announced the launch of a new liquidity mining program for Optimism.
The announcement about the Optimism liquidity mining program may have promoted a shift in investor sentiment in favor of the bulls. This, because Optimism is one of the most popular Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solutions which facilitates large volumes.
According to its website, Optimism’s on-chain value is north of $800 million. In fact, it also claims to have helped save more than $1 billion in gas fees.
The @OptimismFND Liquidity Mining program is live on Aave V3
The program will run for 90 days with a distribution of 5M OP to the Aave Protocol’s Optimism Market users

AAVE’s price action
The impact on AAVE’s price action means investors expect the move to boost demand for the cryptocurrency. Although AAVE managed to break through its descending resistance, it still should contend with friction at its press time level near the $101 price range.
This, because the same level pictured resistance in the second half of July.
AAVE’s upside over the last 24 hours was courtesy of the buying pressure that had been building up since 2 August. This was around the same time that the MFI pivoted due to accumulation, and the same case goes for the RSI. However, it is unclear whether the latest upside will last.
AAVE’s currently bullish performance might be short-lived unless the market manages to maintain its favorable bullish sentiments. This, because the supply held by top addresses metric registered a 0.41% drop in the last 24 hours, indicating that whales have been cashing out.
The upside was also backed by a smaller increase in active addresses, compared to the previous spike in addresses on 3 August.
AAVE’s whale transaction count also recorded an increase in activity in the last two days and this backed the latest upside.
However, whale transactions have been within an average daily count. Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of buying pressure.
Although AAVE’s price uptick reflected the Optimism announcement, its on-chain metrics explain the lack of strong momentum. Its short-term upside might thus be limited.
