Waves Price Rallies to All Time Peak as Market Cap Nears $4bln
The main characteristics that a blockchain venture that expect to stand for a long period of time are real-world adoption and capability to serve the requirements of a broad range of industries in a fast-growing and highly competitive domain.
One crypto venture that has been in existence since 2016 and has recorded a new high in May’s price rally is Waves (WAVES), a multi-dimensional blockchain covenant that has recorded considerable expansion in 2021, primarily due to latest advancements in decentralized finance (DeFi), real-world adoption and non-fungible tokens (NFT).
Data provided by CoinGecko.com indicates that the token, after recording a low of $12.22 on April 25, has rallied over 205% to hit a fresh all-time peak of $37.61, with a record $1.24 billion worth trading volume in 24-hours, resulting in a 60% price surge on May 3.
The trigger that paved way for the double-digit rally last week paralleled with the announcement that Waves Enterprise had collaborated with the Russian space agency Roscosmos to trial a tool that uses blockchain technology in avoiding intellectual property violation.
The momentum for Waves token has continued to increase following the Roscosmos press release. The uptrend was also fueled partly by the ongoing Wave EGG NFT marketing program, which brings together community members and makes them to perform tasks to get rewarded in EGG tokens and mint distinct NFTs.
There has been considerable growth of DeFi on Waves as demonstrated by the Neutrino stablecoin covenant of the network eclipsing $1 billion in TVL (total value locked) on April 29. The surge in the price of Waves on May 3 was sparked by a tweet made in the previous day by the decentralized oracle provider Chainlink talking about WAVES/USD data feeds that can be simply embedded into DeFi markets.
Furthermore, rising optimism about the project on social media platforms also provided the necessary impetus to the price rally, as per the info provided by TheTie. As a matter of fact, the long-time sentiment score has increased to 93, from 53 within a week in parallel to a comparable spike in Tweet volume.
