A Week on Fantom Review

Last week was a bullish week for the whole Fantom ecosystem. All critical metrics have skyrocketed, especially the Social Metrics as the community was excited about the return of Andre Cronje.

Leading in both TVL & Price gainers is Based Finance while the most influential project of the week is Floki Inu.

However, with the collapse of FTX & Sam Bankman-Fried this week, we cannot expect a bullish trend like this in the next few days.

Fantom has reached 12M+ Unique Addresses

Fantom Weekly Recap Week 45 (03/11 - 10/11) - 6

The Total number of Fantom’s Unique Addresses has reached a new all-time high: 12M Total Unique Addresses. 

Surprisingly, Fantom achieved this new milestone just a week after reaching 6M, which means the Total Unique Addresses on Fantom are doubled in just 7 days! 

The skyrocketing of Unique Addresses, as we have explained in the previous newsletter, came from the appearance of XEN Crypto – a project that allows users to free mint tokens. The news of Andre Cronje’s return last week also pushed this metric to an even higher level.

Hope this rally can continue in the next few days despite the harsh market situation.
