This weekly recap is for informational purposes, not investment advice. Readers will be responsible for all their actions.
In general, the Daily Transaction Amount in week 28 has a sharp decline from 22 000 DOT to 5 200 DOT. The reason for this decline is related to the decrease in the price of DOT. Specifically, also from July 12, 2021, to July 18, 2021, the DOT coin decreased in value from more than $15 to $12 and showed a short-term downtrend. In the context of the cryptocurrency market’s continuous decline in value today, we believe that the problem of DOT’s decline is only temporary.
Daily Active Address & Newly Created Address
Also, mainly due to the reasons mentioned above, the number of Daily Active Address & Newly Created Address has had a slight decrease this week. However, it is insignificant, showing that most investors and users have been preparing for this week’s drop and have become more cautious with their decisions. Most of them are waiting for a suitable opportunity to trade with better and safer profits; others are long-term holders and quitters.
Daily Fees Used
Because Daily Transaction Amount decreased, Daily Fees Used also declines slightly. Based on price and transaction data, it is possible that Daily Fees Used will also fall further in the coming week due to the caution of investors and users.

Price has already broken out of the falling wedge. If it can break the inverse H & S neckline at $13, it is a successful breakout. After that, a long position to $17, $20, and $24 gives us 100% return on investment from $12.
