Ecosystem Update

Despite the market turmoil, developers & community always strive to enrich the Fantom Ecosystem constantly. There are some major updates and news this week on the Fantom Ecosystem, which are listed below.

Fantom On-chain Data Highlights

Fantom Weekly Recap Week 38 (15/9 - 22/9) - 1

Last week, the bearish sentiment of the cryptocurrency market caused Fantom’s on-chain data to decline. However, The Fantom Opera network maintains a relatively high active user & daily transactions.

We also reach a new milestone in terms of Unique Addresses, as the total number of Unique Addresses has now passed 3.5 million! 

These achievements from on-chain data prove that the Fantom Opera chain is still very active, Fantom developers & community are still on despite any market sentiments! 

FTM Price Analysis

Last week was not a positive week for the cryptocurrency market. Although The Merge was completed, this was not a growth momentum for Ethereum and the whole market. The U.S inflation rate increased by 0,75% after the FOMC Meeting was also a cause leading to bearishness, although the result from the meeting was as expected.

Ethereum dropped from $1500 to around $1200. Bitcoin went downward from $20,000 to around $18,000. Fantom is not excluded from this trend. After the failed breakout last month, FTM price dropped drastically. Currently, FTM is going sideway at the range between two supports: $0,21 – $0,24. 

Looking further, the FTM chart is still clearly in a downtrend, and with the currently harsh macro-economic & cryptocurrency industry situation, those bullish days are still far away. However, we still can take some good profits in a short-term pullback.
