MANA v. AXS – Identifying which project has the crowd’s backing now

    MANA and AXS shared similar price trajectories over the last few weeks
    Investigation of other metrics revealed who the crowds favoured more

A more simplified version could be: In a recent analysis by Santiment on X (previously Twitter), it was brought to light that Decentraland’s [MANA] development activity significantly trails behind Axie Infinity’s [AXS]. This is noteworthy as both tokens were among the top virtual reality and gaming sector picks in 2020.

The development activity behind MANA far outpaced that of Axie Infinity. In fact, according to Santiment, the 30-day Dev activity for Decentraland was at 168.33, compared to a paltry 19 for Axie Infinity. Ergo, AMBCrypto decided to dig deeper and investigate if the latter has been lagging in other metrics as well.

Development activity lead for MANA isn’t something new

In simple terms, the pricing trends for the two tokens have been quite alike over the past few months. This similarity is particularly noticeable since late February when they have moved in unison on price charts. As a result, it’s reasonable to assume that the same market influences affected the prices of both tokens.

Despite a significant difference in trading volume between MANA and AXS, MANA typically sees more trading activity. Furthermore, it’s important to note that the leadership in development activity for MANA isn’t limited to just the most recent month.

To put it simply, according to Santiment’s findings, the development activity for MANA surpassed that of AXS starting around mid-December. This gap was most pronounced towards the end of January.

Investor sentiment also in favor of Decentraland

An increased level of development work on the project results in more new features being released, improved issue resolutions, and a lower risk of being a fraudulent venture. This significantly enhances investor trust and faith in MANA. Furthermore, the 90-day average age of its circulating coins serves as additional evidence supporting this belief. Since late November, this metric has consistently risen for the token.

In recent weeks, the average age of coins in the AXS supply has decreased significantly, starting from early March. Additionally, based on Market Value Realized Value (MVRV) ratio, AXS appeared to be slightly underpriced as an asset.
