Stacks (STX) down 10% in the biweekly 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 for its unique approach to bridging the gap between traditional finance and decentralized finance (DeFi).
The Stacks token has increased in price significantly since its launch. In the early days, the token was trading around $0.01; as of today, it has risen to $0.6589. However, the current price of the coin still represents a 10% drop over the past two weeks.
One of the main drivers behind the recent increase 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 such as Stacks that provide access to these applications.
Despite the sluggish price action of late, another factor contributing to the token’s rise in popularity is the growing adoption of the Stacks blockchain.
Huge traction on DApps
The network has gained a lot of traction in recent years, with many developers building DApps on top of it. This has helped create a strong ecosystem around the Stacks token, which in turn has driven up demand and price.
