According to the official announcement, this new standard will offer several benefits as far as real-world applicability is concerned. It will particularly make it possible to develop composable NFTs. Speaking of, NFT trading activity took a substantial hit in the last three months.
Aptos’ total NFT trades count peaked at 5,751 in mid-June and recently dropped to a single-digit count. This underscored just how the slow market conditions have affected the network.
The new token standard highlights the network’s efforts to boost NFT trading activity. Meanwhile, APT’s development activity also took a hit and fell to its lowest three-month levels on Monday (21 August).
Will the token standard put APT on a bullish trajectory?
APT had a promising start after delivering an impressive performance in January 2023. However, it has maintained an overall bearish slide since February and recently bottomed out at $4.92.
It has since bounced back to its $5.82 press time price. Nevertheless, its Money Flow Index (MFI) suggested that the token was still experiencing outflows. Hence, short-term prospects remain bearish for now.
So what does the future have in store for this coin? Well, the new Aptos DA standard may unlock more growth opportunities, hence potentially boosting demand for the coin in the network.
Note that this is still a hypothetical scenario for now. But, if it were to succeed, then that would boost its long-term bullish prospects.

As far as recent on-chain observations were concerned, Aptos’ social dominance metric showed signs of stimulation in the last 24 hours at press time. Despite this, on-chain volume remained low. This reflected the recent market conditions underpinned by uncertainty and low confidence in the market’s ability to bounce back.
Aptos’ new token standard has the potential to boost the network’s adoption in the long term hence the magnitude of this development.
Nevertheless, the APT cryptocurrency has shown an affinity for the downside in the last few months. It was still trading at a premium compared to its lowest 2023 price level.
