Significant Sell-Off: AVAX, 1000SATS, and OP Experience Sharp Declines

Last Updated:
  • AVAX faces a 38% drop in a month, signaling concerns about its network engagement and revenue streams.
  • SATS token fell 14.94% in 24 hours, reflecting a wider market loss of investor confidence.
  • Despite a recent drop, Optimism’s OP maintains strong interest with the potential for a surge above $5.00.

The crypto market has been in a downturn, with Bitcoin leading the slide, affecting major tokens. AVAX, 1000SATS, and Optimism (OP) are among those that have experienced significant price drops. This decline reflects a broader trend within the digital asset space as investors reassess their positions amid changing market dynamics.

Avalanche (AVAX)

Avalanche’s AVAX token has suffered a 38% drop over the past month, primarily due to decreased user engagement on its C-Chain. This network is critical for creating and interacting with decentralized applications (dApps), but recent data from Artemis indicates a substantial decline in both unique wallet addresses and transaction counts on the chain. The resulting lower transaction fees, which have fallen by over 90%, signal a worrying trend for the network’s revenue streams.

In the last 24 hours, bearish pressure has dominated, with AVAX dipping from a 24-hour high of $31.46 to a 30-day low of $27.67. AVAX was priced at $28.03 at press time, a 9.98% decline from the day’s high. 


The SATS token has not been immune to the market downturn. Its value has decreased by 14.94% in the last 24 hours alone, reflecting a broader loss of confidence among investors. With a current price of $0.000426 and a market cap ranking of 65, the downturn in SATS illustrates the widespread impact of current market conditions.

If the bearish momentum breaks through the $0.0004215 support level, the next support level to watch for is around $0.0004. This reduction in value has resulted in increased selling pressure and heightened concern among 1000SATS holders. However, if the bulls recover control and push the price above the resistance level of $0.00045, it might suggest a shift in market attitude.

Optimism (OP)

In contrast, Optimism (OP) has attracted attention from analysts like Michael van de Poppe, who sees the current price correction as part of a larger trend. Despite the recent drop to $2.99, van de Poppe predicts a potential surge above $5.00 based on the project’s solid use case and roll-up technology. 

This optimism amidst a general market slump highlights the varied responses of different crypto assets to current economic pressures. However, this projection has yet to materialize, with bears in the last 24 hours dipping prices from a high of $3.07 to a low of $2.69, where support was established. At press time, OP was exchanging hands at $2.70, a 10.19% decline from the day’s high.

During the slump, OP’s market capitalization fell 10.53% to $2,583,389,077, while its 24-hour trading volume increased 64.80% to $308,573,826. This increase in trading volume suggests that there is still strong interest and activity in the market for OP. It implies that, despite the downward trend, investors are still actively purchasing and selling the token.
