AVAX and the rest of the crypto market in general have had a bearish month in 2022. Despite this, Avalanche has seen positive growth in other areas, as evidenced by its most recent update.
Avalanche reported positive growth in transaction count in its most recent update. It emphasised that the network’s monthly transactions exceeded 68 million in October. The report highlighted the disparity between network growth in terms of network transactions and AVAX’s price action.
In the last few months, Avalanche experienced all time highs with monthly transactions exceeding 68 million (Sept. 2022) and total transactions exceeding 450 million.

But what does this mean for Avalanche moving forward?
The common expectation is that positive network growth has a direct correlation with price action. That has not been the case for AVAX price action which was largely bearish in the last 11 months. But is this new update enough to stimulate renewed investors’ interest?
AVAX’s weighted sentiment experienced a noteworthy surge in the last week of November. This is a confirmation that investors are now taking up a more bullish stance toward cryptocurrency. The positive report may also offer a boost to investors’ sentiment and improve the outlook for December.
The improved weighted sentiment also resulted in improved demand, especially from the derivatives market. A look at the Binance and DYDX funding rates confirms this. Both metrics have improved significantly towards the end of the month, especially compared to their 4-week lows.
The currently improving AVAX investor sentiment may also be backed by healthy development. The developer activity metric just concluded in November with a sharp upside. This observation adds to the list of factors currently favoring AVAX bulls, which may also underscore its performance for the remainder of 2022.
AVAX price action
AVAX just concluded November with a 13% upside from its current monthly low. Despite this, its $13.02 press time price is still close to its current 2022 low, and here’s why this is important for investors.
AVAX’s money flow already indicates noteworthy accumulation from its current bottom range. It has also regained some relative strength but the current upside indicates a lack of strong momentum. This is likely because investors are still cautious about the potential for more downside.
Low whale participation has also resulted in a weak bullish recovery. Nevertheless, the market sentiment is gradually improving. If this remains the case, then there is a significant probability of a strong bullish resurgence for the remaining part of the year.
AVAX might also be slated for a strong long-term recovery since it will be backed by the robust organic utility during the next major bull run.
