Amid market-wide consolidation and stagnation in the cryptocurrency sector, some assets have stood out in their on-chain activity, including the pure proof-of-stake (PoS) network Algorand (ALGO), which has been adding active addresses at a time when most cryptos have been idle or even declining.
Indeed, Algorand has shown strong growth week-over-week, with ALGO daily active addresses rising as much as 60%, according to the data assembled by crypto market analytics company CoinMetrics and published on October 18.
As data demonstrates, Algorand’s seven-day average is 104,000 active addresses, second only to Litecoin (LTC), which increased the amount of its on-chain activity by 75%, with an average of 378,000 daily active addresses.
Lack of activity across landscape
By comparison, Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) both advanced their on-chain activity by only 6% (557,000 and 53,000), whereas Ethereum Classic (ETC) and Bitcoin (BTC) declined by 7% (28,000) and 1% (887,000), respectively.
In terms of other types of digital assets, ICP is joined on the bench by stablecoin Gemini Dollar (GUSD), which lost 32% on its weekly on-chain activity, featuring fewer than 1,000 active daily addresses.
Algorand price analysis
Meanwhile, Algorand’s token was at press time trading at $0.3143, representing a decline of 2.38% over the previous 24 hours, as well as 1.50% compared to seven days before.
At the same time, ALGO’s market capitalization currently stands at $2.20 billion, making it the 30th-largest cryptocurrency by this indicator, as per CoinMarketCap data retrieved by Finbold on October 19.
