Stacks (STX) Down 10% In The Bi-Weekly Frame
As one of the first blockchains, Stacks made it possible to mint Bitcoin Ordinals.
Launched in 2017, Stacks has gained popularity among blockchain enthusiasts due to its unique approach to bridging the gap between traditional finance and decentralized finance (DeFi).
The Stacks token has seen a significant increase in price since its launch. In its early days, the token was trading at around $0.01; as of today, it has climbed to $0.6589. However, the coin’s current price still represents a 10% drop in the last two weeks.
One of the main drivers behind the recent surge in the price of the STX token is the growing interest in DeFi applications.
As more people become aware of the benefits of decentralized finance, there is an increasing demand for tokens like Stacks that provide access to these applications.
Despite its sluggish price action of late, another factor contributing to the token’s rise in popularity is the growing adoption of the Stacks blockchain.
Major Traction On DApps
The network has gained significant traction in recent years, with many developers building DApps on top of it. This has helped to create a strong ecosystem around the Stacks token, which in turn has driven up demand and price.
Stacks (STX) has a 24-hour trading volume of $162,075,090 as of Thursday, representing a -2.29% price decrease over the previous 24 hours and a -33.77% price decline for the previous week. Coingecko statistics indicates that STX has a circulating supply of 1,400,000,000.
Stacks is presently ranked 54th among all cryptocurrencies and has a market capitalization of $895 million, an increase of 21% over the past 30 days. The ratio of the coin’s volume to its market capitalization indicates a stable price trend.
