LayerZero Sees Unmatched Traction, $ZRO Whale Accumulation Raises Eyebrows

LayerZero is making waves in the blockchain space, despite recent slowdowns in farming activities. With a Fully Diluted Valuation (FDV) of under $3 billion, LayerZero $ZRO boasts over 10 times the daily cross-chain message traffic compared to its closest competitors, Wormhole and Axelar Network.

This significant discrepancy in traction versus valuation highlights LayerZero’s potential, especially as it trades within a similar range as its peers.

Currently, LayerZero has integrated with more than 80 chains and over 54,000 applications, facilitating upwards of 40,000 daily transactions. In stark contrast, Wormhole and Axelar average only 4,000 daily messages. This disparity underscores LayerZero’s superior traction in the interoperability space.

On-chain data from reveals substantial accumulation of $ZRO by a whale, potentially linked to Wintermute. The wallet 0xaa7c began accumulating $ZRO five days ago, amassing 262,412 $ZRO (approximately $824,460) at an average price of $3.14.

This holding now represents a significant portion of the wallet’s portfolio. Moreover, six days ago, the same wallet transferred $200,000 worth of $LINK to Wintermute’s address.

Exchange Deposits Of $ZRO Becomes More Pronounced, With Significant Outflows From Long-term Holders 

Additionally, Amber Group has recently deposited 500,000 $ZRO (around $1.38 million) to Binance. This comes after receiving 5.69 million $ZRO from LayerZero’s contract, distributing a portion to various exchanges including Bifmex, Binance, Kucoin, and Bitget.

The trend of depositing $ZRO onto centralized exchanges (CEXes) has become more pronounced, with significant outflows from long-term holders. Despite this, the project’s fundamentals remain strong, making it an attractive prospect for investors.

According to Cody (@0xhopydoc), with LayerZero’s FDV below $3 billion, this price level is deemed reasonable for buying in. Comparing LayerZero to Wormhole and Axelar, he emphasizes the project’s substantial potential at its current valuation.

As LayerZero continues to outpace its competitors in cross-chain transactions, its market position appears robust, suggesting now might be an opportune time to invest.
