The number of new daily addresses created on the Cardano ($ADA) network has risen recently, with the number of new addresses created soaring 167 percent to 112,500 addresses apparently out of nowhere.
A “continuous increase in this statistic often predicts a jump in price volatility for ADA,” according to on-chain analyst Ali Martinez, who initially pointed to the surge in on-chain activity using IntoTheBlock’s Net Network growth metrics.
Decentralized finance (Defi) applications currently have close to $130 million invested in them, according to DeFiLlama data. With nearly 98 percent of the total value locked, SundaeSwap has been leading the pack.
SundaeSwap is supported by sound, an early-stage venture business anchored by IOHK, Alameda Research, a quantitative crypto trading firm created by FTX’s CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, and Double Peak Group, a family office specializing in digital asset investments.
MuesliSwap, the first viable decentralized finance (Defi) application on Cardano, was released in January. It is currently valued at about $2.5 million in total.
According to data, major ADA token investors more than doubled their holdings in the cryptocurrency in January, taking advantage of a 30% price decline.
Cardano ($ADA) is said to deal with 10,000 to 1 million tokens, according to data. ADA has grown its assets by 113 percent, amassing $53.6 million in the process.
After the debut of SundaeSwap, Cardano developer Input Output recommended raising the network’s block size by 11%, from 72 to 80 KB.
According to CryptoCompare’s weekly Asset Report, Cardano holders increased by 10.9 percent to 309,000 in January, while cruisers increased by 5.85 percent to 3.19 million. Last month, the number of addresses with ADA reached a record high of 4.53 million.
