LunarCrush’s data also revealed that ADA was among the top cryptos on 25 October in terms of social engagement. This hinted at the alt’s increased popularity in the crypto community.
A look at ADA’s on-chain metrics also painted a similar bullish picture, as several of them were in ADA’s favor.
For example, ADA’s MVRV Ratio increased significantly over the last week, which is a positive signal. Not only this, but ADA’s volume also spiked considerably.
LunarCrush’s data was yet again proven right by Santiment’s chart as it revealed that ADA’s social volume and weighted sentiments went up last week, which is yet another green flag for the coin.
