ApeCoin on-chain metrics paint bearish picture
On-chain metrics like daily active addresses, social dominance and supply on exchanges have turned bearish for APE this week. This is key for APE holders and market participants as changes in on-chain metrics are likely to influence sentiment among traders.
Based on data from crypto intelligence tracker Santiment, the total count of daily active addresses on the APE network, on a 24-hour timeframe, was slashed in half this week. On Monday, the number of active addresses stood at 2,032, falling to a 1,051 at the time of writing.
