- Polkadot achieved quite a few milestones last year.
- The year 2023 also looks promising for DOT.
polka dots [DOT] recently tweeted about its annual roundup mentioning all the notable developments that happened in its ecosystem in 2022.
The tweet talked about several achievements. For instance, DOT had more than 74 parachains, over 300 dapps, 550+ projects, and 2,500 monthly active developers across the ecosystem.
This reflects the popularity and reliability of the network. Moreover, over 350,000 XCM transfers were sent by the Polkadot ecosystem, ushering in a new age of safe cross-chain interoperability and taking a significant step toward bringing the wonder of secure cross-consensus bridging to the rest of the world.

Over the past three months, DOT‘s metrics also showed some interesting movements. For example, its development activity has recently decreased.
Furthermore, after a sharp decrease in November, DOT’s Binance funding rate went up consistently, which proved its demand in the derivatives market. The crypto community also talked about DOT with utmost excitement as evidenced by its social dominance increase.

This can be expected
A few of the market indicators were also supportive of a price hike this year. The relative strength index was hovering near the oversold zone. DOT‘s Money Flow Index also registered an uptick, which looked promising for the network.
Nonetheless, the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon was bearish as the 20-day EMA was resting below the 55-day EMA. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) also went down, which might be troublesome.
