This sublime increase in wallets may not be connected to the fall of FTX, especially as investors vowed to move to decentralized exchanges. Since Cardano’s network was primarily decentralized, it was likely that the increase meant a “vote of confidence” in the project.

Long-term HODLing justifies nothing yet

Despite the hike, the ADA’s long-term holders were still on board severe pain. This was because the market value to realized value (MVRV) ratio indicated massive loss for these ADA supporters. According to Santiment, the 365-day MVRV ratio was -52.14%.

Although the 30-day state was no better, it suggested that investors with ADA in their wallets far from doubled the value of their holdings.

In fact, the drop in value reflected a further turn to the downside rather than a significant respite. In terms of z-score, the ADA was at -1.238 points. It indicated that ADA was undervalued in its current location and the current value could offer a moment for investors to accumulate.

Do wallets lend a hand?

Cardano also recorded an increase in transaction participation as the number of wallets increased. Based on Santiment revelations, the 24-hour ADA active addresses had increased to 72,400. The seven-day count also showed an increase to 347,000. This suggested that wallets created were not just being registered for dormancy. Instead, they had been actively involved in contributing to deposits on the Cardano network.

However, the circumstances contrasted with the state of the ADA circulation. At press time, one-day ADA circulation had fallen from 287.56 million to 112.48 million.

With a decrease of over 100%, it suggested that the number of unique ADA tokens which exchanged hands during the period was not significant. Therefore, short-term traders barely traded the token. Nevertheless, that did not mean a decline in interest.
