Along with the growth in token holders, Apecoin’s velocity increased as well. This indicated that the frequency at which APE was being transferred among wallets had increased. There was also interest from investors with deep pockets.

As seen in the chart below, there was an uptick in the supply held by top addresses over the past few days. However, the daily active addresses for ApeCoin remained volatile since the past few months.


APE NFTs rise

The NFTs associated with ApeCoin, such as BAYC and MAYC, witnessed a decline. Over the past week, the BAYC NFT collection’s floor price depreciated by 4.23% while the number of sellers increased by 38.59%.

However, the MAYC did witness some growth. From the image given below, it can be observed that the number of MAYC sales increased over the past week. The number of sales grew by 30.08%, and the liquidity also increased by the same amount.

However, despite the growing popularity of some of the NFTs associated with ApeCoin, its transaction count declined sharply over the past few days. 

Unlike ApeCoin’s transaction count, its volume continued to grow. Since 7 October, ApeCoin’s grew exponentially, from 93.33 million to 367.76 million at the time of writing. Its Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) witnessed an uptick as well. This could indicate higher selling pressure in the future.
