Avalanche’s social dominance has just hit a new weekly high over the last 24 hours, confirming that the network is getting a lot of attention. Its development activity metric has also seen sharp growth over the last seven days, confirming that developers are busy.
But what has driven this development activity and social volume? There have been several announcements so far this week that are likely behind the above results. Among these factors is a recap of how demand for native Bitcoin (BTC) grew on the Avalanche network in June 2022.

Avalanche advances on the WEB3 front
Additionally, Avalanche has teamed up with Chinese internet giant Tencent to pursue opportunities on WEB3. According to the announcement, Avalanche will provide Tencent developers with access to subnets and rapid node development.
Avalanche also rolled out its new developer framework called the HyperSDK this week. This will make it easier for developers to quickly develop custom virtual machines, reducing the complexities of development processes.

How did AVAX respond?
AVAX has held up very well in light of these advances. However, the bulls struggled to break above the $21 price level after encountering resistance.
AVAX price action at press time was characterized by lower volatility. Despite this, its trend has shown relative strength above the 50% level of the RSI. Its MFI is down slightly from this week’s high, confirming some outflows.

However, it has remained firmly above the 60 range, confirming a weak bearish result so far. This result also reflects bearish sentiment since mid-February.
Bearish expectations, as seen in weighted sentiment, failed to produce a sizable move. Instead, the same metric has changed and now indicates that bullish sentiment is brewing.
