This consistent building on the network led to a spike in Cardano’s development activity. This meant that the contributions made by the Cardano team had grown materially over the last seven days. The development activity witnessed some correlation with the spike in price as well.

It remains to be seen whether the increasing development activity can aid ADA’s price action in the future.

Another department where Cardano performed well was in the NFT market. In the last seven days, the volume of Cardano NFTs sold increased by 6.44%, according to data provided by opencnft. However, despite the spike in volume, the number of sales made on the Cardano network declined by 8,90% in the same time frame.

In terms of DeFi, Cardano’s total value locked (TVL) showed immense year-on-year improvements. According to Adaverse news, Cardano’s TVL increased by 10,800% over the last year. At press time, the total value locked by Cardano was 61.62 million, rising by 2.15% in the last 24 hours.

However, the revenue generated by Cardano continued to decline over the last 30 days. According to Token Terminal, Cardano’s revenue plummeted by 25.3% in the past month.
