Growth in terms of DeFi
Along with the growth of its stablecoins, it also witnessed massive growth in terms of the DeFi sector.
The total value locked on Cardano increased from 200 million to 326 million in the last few weeks. This was spearheaded by the popularity of decentralized exchanges(DEX) on the Cardano network.
Artemis’ data showed that the overall volumes on DEXs for Cardano grew from 3 million to 5.89 million.
Despite this, the activity on the Cardano network declined significantly. The number of daily active addresses on the network fell from 52,000 to 39,000 in the last few weeks.
As a result, the number of transactions occurring on the network also fell.
Fees collection impacted
This impacted the fees generated on the Cardano network.
Token terminal’s data showed that in the last week, the fees generated by Cardano fell by 20.4%. This decline might impact the overall economic health of the Cardano ecosystem, affecting incentives for validators and stakers.
Additionally, it could raise concerns about the sustainability of the network and its ability to attract and retain users, developers, and other participants.
The development activity on the network also saw a decline. The number of code commits occurring on Cardano fell by 41.7% in the last month.
This reduction in code commits could impact the pace of updates, enhancements, and overall progress within the Cardano ecosystem negatively.
It could also potentially impact the network’s ability to introduce new features, fix bugs, and stay competitive within the rapidly evolving blockchain landscape.
