Avalanche: Investors may want to watch out for AVAX after reading this

Avalanche [AVAX] developers recently pushed a new upgrade named [email protected] This version is backwards compatible with v1.8.0, which is optional but recommended by developers.

Apart from the launch of this new update, several positive developments have happened in the AVAX community lately. These have added value to the blockchain. AVAX’s price also corresponded to those developments, as it registered a 2% gain in the last 24 hours.

At the time of writing, AVAX was trading at $18 with a market capitalization of $5,325,276,801. Though the developments look promising, the real question is whether they can help AVAX start its next bull-rally.

Community developments 

AVAX has gone through with a number of partnerships with several other players in the market. These have helped increase the popularity of the blockchain and the services it offers. The most recent one being Avalanche’s collaboration with Boba Network, which is a multi-chain Layer-2 scaling solution.

According to the official tweet, this partnership will enable faster transactions at lower costs.

What to expect next?

A few on-chain metrics were also in favor of AVAX as they suggested a further surge in its price in the coming days. For instance, AVAX’s development activity increased considerably over the last week, which can be taken as a positive signal as it reflects developers’ efforts in improving the blockchain.

The NFT space also displayed some action as the total number of NFT trade counts spiked last week along with social volume. However, the social volume registered a decrease after the surge. 

Interestingly, CryptoQuant’s data revealed that AVAX’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) and stochastic were in neutral positions, suggesting the market can go in any direction. Considering all the positive developments happening in the network, we can expect AVAX to perform better in the next week. 

AVAX’s daily chart also suggested a similar outcome as most of the market indicators were in its favor. AVAX’s On Balance Volume (OBV) registered an uptick, which is a bullish signal. Moreover, the Bollinger Bands (BB) suggested that AVAX’s price was in a crunched zone. This increased the possibility of a northbound movement soon.
