Avalanche (AVAX) price- on-chain metrics signal bullish outlook
Avalanche, according to one on-chain metric, is flashing signals of a new upward momentum. Santiment, in a brief assessment of the Avalanche social volumes indicator, says current sentiment for this coin has been higher than when AVAX price rose to its year-to-date highs of $21 in February.
The increase in social volume as well as positive weighted sentiment for Avalanche during the latest pullback provides for a bullish outlook for the cryptocurrency, Santiment noted.
According to the on-chain data platform, AVAX/USD saw “minimal social volume and sentiments were stagnant,” during the run to $21. The difference between then and now is clear in terms of the sharp increase in these metrics.
As such, Avalanche is poised for a potential uptick in retail buying, an outlook that could spell a period of sustained gains for the tokens.
