Cosmos has these expansion plans in place for 2023, but does ATOM approve

  • ATOM could witness significant demand from DEXes in the future 
  • ATOM traders could watch out for an upcoming bullish trend 

The Cosmos blockchain maintained steady development in line with its long-term goal. The latest update from Informal Systems, one of the developers on the Cosmos network, reaffirmed its commitment towards development. Furthermore, it highlighted some of the biggest upcoming developments to look forward to.

According to the Informal Systems announcement, the first major development will be the Interchain Security rollout. This will take place early next year, as soon as January 2023. This development will pave the way for the launch of consumer chains.

1/ At Informal, we’ve been heads down preparing for Interchain Security launch in January 2023!

Over the coming months, we will welcome the first few consumer chains to the @cosmoshub – all of which will provide valuable services to @cosmos.

The consumer chains will facilitate other key launches such as Neutrol which will enable smart contract development on Cosmos. These developments are critical for the Cosmos ecosystem because they will fast-track adoption and utility.

Informal Systems also revealed that the Interchain Security launch will also come with a roll out of the Duality XYZ DEX.

It’s all about ATOM…

The consumer focus will likely trigger more demand for ATOM. We will likely see an increase in demand from the DEX side. Liquid staking will be a feature in Interchain Security. These are just some of the potential demand drivers that the Cosmos ecosystem will create in the next few months.

Cosmos has already seen an upsurge in its development activity metric. This was confirmation that the network developers have been busy working on the upcoming upgrades.

Healthy development activity is one of the metric that determines investor confidence. But, ATOM’s price action leaned towards the bearish side especially in the last two weeks. Its $8.85 press time price represented a 42% drop from its current monthly high.

ATOM hovered above the oversold zone at the time of writing. This meant it will be oversold if the drop extended below its current level. Furthermore, traders could also observe a return of bullish momentum if buyers start to trickle in.

There have been some changes at ATOM’s current price level that indicated a potential bullish pivot ahead. For example, the Binance and DYDX funding rates registered an uptick in the last 24 hours. This was a sign that demand in the derivatives market was recovering.

ATOM investors can also expect a mid-week bullish bounce if the altcoin manages to secure enough bullish volume. Especially, if we factor in its heavy discount. Despite this expectation, investors should still consider the possibility of more downside. The latest bearish conditions have seen ATOM drop below previous support levels.

Assessing what’s next for Yearn Finance (YFI) as we gear up to close Q4

Assessing what’s next for Yearn Finance (YFI) as we gear up to close Q4

  • YFI suffers a bearish divergence that indicates a decline in buying momentum.
  • Sellers take control of the YFI market during the intraday trading session.

Despite the growth in the price per Yearn Finance (YFI) token, the count of daily active addresses on the network continues to fall, data from Santiment revealed. 

As of this writing, YFI traded at $7,027.16. In the last week, its price went up by 7%, per data from CoinMarketcap.

With just 248 unique addresses involved in YFI transactions at press time, the number of daily active addresses that have traded the alt has fallen consistently by 41% in the last week.

YFI’s price and the count of its active addresses moving in opposite directions create a bearish divergence that precedes a price drawdown. 

Likewise, a price/trading volume divergence was spotted on a daily chart. As YFI’s price rallied by 3% in the last 24 hours, its trading volume fell by 25% within the same period.

This was an indication of exhaustion among the current buyers in the YFI market and marked a potential re-entrance point for sellers. As a result, new demand would be required to drive up the alt’s price further.  

However, data from Santiment showed that new demand for YFI has declined since the beginning of the month. As of this writing, 59 new addresses were on the YFI network. In the last eight days, this has fallen by 48%.

Day traders are not smiling 

An assessment of YFI’s performance on a 4-hour chart revealed that sellers had control of the intraday market. Selling pressure rallied as daily traders shied away from accumulating the alt.

At press time, the dynamic line (green) of YFI’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) rested below the center line to return a negative value of -0.07. A fall of an asset’s CMF below the center line usually indicates that the token’s distribution rate exceeds its accumulation rate within a specified period. A negative CMF is an indication of weakened buying pressure.

Furthermore, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) was spotted at 48.97 in a downtrend. Stationed below the 50-neutral region facing south, selling pressure rallied as more buyers exited the YFI market. Likewise, its Money Flow Index (MFI) was pegged at 45.85 at press time.

The position of the Directional Movement Index (DMI) confirmed the strength of YFI sellers during the intraday trading session. 

The sellers’ strength (red) at 23.67 was solidly above the buyers’ (green) at 16.03. Additionally, the Average Directional Index (ADX) showed that the seller’s strength was a difficult one that buyers might find impossible during the day’s trading session.

Uniswap NFT volume declines by a great margin, but here’s the catch

Uniswap NFT volume declines by a great margin, but here’s the catch

  • Uniswap witnessed a decline in NFT volume lately.
  • This decline affected other areas of the DEX, including the count of unique users and overall transactions.

All eyes were on Uniswap during the launch of their NFT protocol. There was growth observed on multiple fronts due to this launch. However, according to data provided by Dune, it appeared that the hype around Uniswap had started to decline, at press time. 


                                  Read Uniswap’s Price Prediction 2023-2024


Short-lived hype

From the image below it can be observed that the NFT volume on Uniswap declined over the past few days. The daily volume for the NFTs traded on Uniswap went from $246k to $32k since its launch.  The number of daily transactions for the same decreased from 445 to 35, at the time of writing.

This decline in NFT activity has impacted the DEX negatively. According to Messari,’s data, the number of unique users on Uniswap had fallen by 9.7% and the number of overall transactions being made on the DEX had declined by 28.87% in the last seven days.

Furthermore, in the image below, it can be seen that after the spike caused by the NFT launch, the daily active addresses for UNI declined. Along with that, UNI’s transaction count and velocity also took a hit.

Interestingly enough, these indicators did not deter whales from investing in UNI.

According to WhaleStats, an organization dedicated to tracking crypto whales, Uniswap had been amongst the top 10 most purchased tokens by the top 1000 Ethereum whales.

This spike in interest can be credited to the increase in active developers on the Uniswap system.

The ongoing actions in the NFT space may result in interest being regenerated and it could reflect onto UNI’s positive price action.

That said, at the time of writing, UNI was trading at $5.96 and its price had increased by 0.91% over the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.

Layer 2 networks see jump in dApp migration; the reason might surprise you

Layer 2 networks see jump in dApp migration; the reason might surprise you

  • dApps have increased migration to layer 2 networks.
  • Arbitrum continues to lead as the layer 2 network with the highest TVL

Gas fees spent by layer 2 (L2) Ethereum scaling solutions to settle proofs on Ethereum have clinched an all-time high as decentralized applications (dApps) native to layer 1 networks increase migration to L2s, a new report from Messari showed. 

L2 networks are separate blockchains that extend the functionalities of the Ethereum network and inherit the security guarantees of Ethereum. Transactions are executed on these L2s and then batched up to the base layer, Ethereum. 

To settle proofs of these batched-up transactions on Ethereum, L2s are required to pay gas fees for the network’s security. 

Therefore, as more applications and their users migrate to these L2s, ramping up the number of transactions processed and batched, the amount paid as gas fees to settle proofs by L2s has also rallied to an all-time high.

For example, in September, leading NFTs marketplace OpenSea announced support for leading L2 network Arbitrum. In the same month, the cryptocurrency trading platform Matcha, confirmed its deployment on Arbitrum. Likewise, in October,  leading Ethereum [ETH] staking platform Lido Finance announced its launch on two L2 networks, Arbitrum and Optimism.

Arbitrum takes the lead

According to data from L2Beat, with a total value locked (TVL) of $2.30 billion, Arbitrum ranks as the top L2 platform in today’s market.

Due to its Nitro upgrade launched in August, Arbitrum “can support 7-10x higher throughput and has advanced compression techniques that allow for cheaper transactions, which attracts more activity,” Messari found.

This upgrade has led to a significant surge in the number of daily transactions processed on the L2 network.

Furthermore, as FTX’s unexpected collapse eroded investors’ trust in centralized cryptocurrency exchanges, many investors moved to decentralized exchanges. 

This contributed to Arbitrum’s growth in the last month, as GMX, a “decentralized exchange (DEX) for perpetuals native to Arbitrum and Avalanche, experienced a significant volume increase during the FTX fiasco,” Messari reported. 

On 7 November, GMX logged $5 billion in margin trading volume, a 75% rally from the previous day.

Following FTX’s implosion, DEX tokens have been outperforming CEX tokens over the past week:

Not far behind

Optimism has also benefitted from the increased migration of dApps to L2 in the past few months. Messari found that in the last three months, the count of transacting addresses on the network rallied by 120%.

Per data from Etherscan, the network saw its highest daily number of transactions (499,720) on 9 November in the heat of the FTX saga.
