Why did XDC Network token rise 25% in the past week?


The XDC Network is a hybrid blockchain of sorts, that functions on a consensus mechanism known as the delegated proof-of-stake (XDPoS). Through this mechanism, the XDC Network works to enable hybrid relay bridges, spontaneous block finality and improve interoperability for blockchain users. Its hybrid nature also results in an architecture that is developer friendly in nature.

Thus, while the token has taken a beating in this crypto bear market – the value proposition for this crypto project remains on the high and thus is a token that investors need to keep an eye out for.

For a major part of the year, XDC price has been in somewhat of a sideways trend on the charts, trading within a very broad price range (marked in grey). As we can observe on the chart above – XDC price has been in that range since June 2022, with temporary spikes and drops on either sides. But from the beginning of November, since the collapse of the FTX crypto exchange – we see the XDC price falling significantly below the crucial level of support.

But recently, in the past week especially – XDC price has managed to gain a lot of lost ground, almost up 25% from its local lows. This has helped the token to break into its consolidation zone (marked in grey) once again. This is a reasonably positive technical signal because if the price is able to sustain above this level, there is a chance that it could potentially continue its rally all the to the upper trendline resistance – resulting in yet another 25% rally from current levels.

So overall, things look moderately bullish on the technical front for the XDC network going forward and now let’s take a look at some fundamental on-chain metrics and see if they support this view.

XDC’s Development Activity near a YTD high!

XDC Network might be weaker in terms of price, but in terms of its underlying development activity – it is scoring a few brownie points. According to data sourced from Santiment – a crypto analytical platform – XDC’s Development Activity is at one of the highest points of the year and if the current trend continues, it could potentially reach a new all-time-high (ATH) before the end of 2022.

This is a very positive signal as it indicates that there is a lot of development happening behind the scenes and new products and services could be on the way for its users and investors. As is with all platforms, an increase and improvement in their product and service portfolio is undoubtedly good for the investors and users because of increasing utility of the project.

Sporadic Daily Active Addresses

While XDC Network’s development activity is on the rise, another very important metric is hinting at a worrying indication. As you can observe from the chart above – the daily active addresses count for the XDC Network has been sporadic at best, with spikes going up to low double digit figures. This indicates that there is very low active address count and not a lot of people are actively carrying out transactions on the blockchain network. This is a particularly worrying signal and thus investors need to be aware about this before investing in this token.


Thus to conclude, it seems like the XDC Network crypto project is still in its infancy stage, with a lot of development happening behind the scenes but with little to no active addresses on the network. And considering this is a severe bear market scenario – a low daily active addresses count is expected to be on the lower side. And to add to that, a positive technical structure could possibly usher is more activity as and when we see the recovery sustain and continue.

Prices as on 20 December, 2022.
