This weekly recap is for informational purposes, not investment advice. Readers will be responsible for all their actions.
Last week, the Daily Transaction on NEAR fluctuated relatively stable. It is possible that the price in the crypto market is generally not strongly volatile, and there is no special news in the NEAR ecosystem.
Daily Active Account & Newly Created Account
The number of active accounts fluctuates around 4000 – 5000, relatively stable. This shows that investors’ confidence is shaken, but they accept to stay then.
The number of new accounts can be divided into 2 drops. The first drop started from 6/7 to 9/7, the number of new accounts dropped from over 2000 to over 500. Then suddenly pumped back to the beginning of the week before continuing to drop around 1000. In general, we are seeing a cautiousness of investors and users; the number of new accounts dropped suddenly in the context of the price of NEAR being on a short-term downward trend.
Daily Number of Active and New Contracts
The Daily Number of Active Contracts was almost unchanged in the week, increasing insignificantly by about 2%. Overall, it’s been a pretty peaceful week for NEAR.
Experiencing slight fluctuations, at the end of the week, the Number of New Contracts increased by more than 89%, reaching the point of 36 compared to the point of 19 in 2021-07-06.

The $2.2 zone is solid support for NEAR, and it is moving towards the $2.6 and $3.6 zones this July. If it loses the zone with $2.2, it will be predicted to get back to the $1.8 zone.
Looking at it more broadly, over the past two weeks, NEAR has been the only one to grow among the top cryptocurrencies and other platform tokens. It also partly shows investors’ confidence in the project itself
Panorama of the ecosystem
Comparing top 1 Dapp between ecosystem in last 7 days
Last week, we could see that NEAR’s Ref Finance is outperforming Dapps in other ecosystems. The number of users increased by more than 80%, far ahead of other competitors in terms of speed. This could be a positive sign for the future.
Near ecosystem on creator economy triangle
NEAR Protocol‘s CEO Erik Trautman showed how the virtuous circle of NFTs, DAOs, and Open finance “DeFi” will unlock the new creator economy. Take a brief of blog below:
NFTs are basically digital containers that can hold IP but liberated it to be owned and traded, so creators have a world of new ways to produce, distribute, remix and monetize content.
DAOs are basically like shared bank accounts for entirely digital communities, so it’s elementary for communities to act almost like official co-ops or companies and build sustainable models for themselves.
Open (“decentralized”) Finance is a whole toolkit that allows creators, communities, NFTs, DAOs, fungible tokens, and all the other pieces of the digital economy to plug into each other in ways that no one has ever done before, allowing entirely new ways of earning income for creators or benefitting from the upside of membership for community members.
The $REF token is officially live
Ref Finance combines several core components: decentralized exchanges, lending, synthetic asset issuers, and more — into a single, synchronized DeFi application.
The ref will take full advantage of NEAR’s low fees ($0.005 per swap), one- to two-second final times, and WebAssembly-based runtimes to compete even with the cost and speed of other CEX exchanges and become a powerful addition to the increasingly diverse multi-chain DeFi ecosystem.
