The path is not yet clear for bears

Usually, MKR’s bull trend could falter in no time given the market inconsistencies. But a remarkable reversal could be far from it. The Santiment report, which defended its position, stated that the trend of the market value to realized value (MVRV) ratio was responsible for the judgement.

At the time of writing, the 30-day MVRV ratio was 15.52%, despite being in the negative region on Jan. 3. The increase implied that MKR holders had made significant gains in recent months and were willing to sell.

Nevertheless, the on-chain market intelligence platform pointed out that MKR was not “dangerously overbought”. Consequently, bullish demands may not be over.

However, MKR volume over the past 24 hours has been subdued. At the time of writing, 24-hour trading volume was down 49.37%. This meant that the number of successful transactions on the Maker network decreased.

With regard to the Total Value Locked (TVL), information from DeFi Llamaclaimed that Maker could not have kept first place after losing it Lido Finance [LDO]. The MKR TVL gained 7.45% over the past seven days.

This left the TVL worth $6.45 billion – a $1.5 million difference from the LDO value. Still, the increase showed that investors were interested in the dApps under the Maker chain as they plunged into the protocols.

The candles burn at both ends

In the meantime, the Maker community voted to reactivate the MKR burn. The buy-and-burn model aims to mint new DAI when the stablecoin fluctuates against the dollar peg.

At the time of going to press, the pending voting results showed that 55% opposed burning an MKR. 30.68% chose to burn 0.5 million DAI, while 13.94% chose to have the community burn 3 million DAI. However, Maker had already started with one test run where an incredible number of MKRs have been burned since January 3.
