As per CoinMarketCap, DOT did not register promising gains over the last week, as its chart was red. At press time, DOT’s price had declined by over 4% in the last 24 hours and was trading at $6.29 with a market capitalization of over $7.24 billion. Over the last week, DOT’s Binance funding rate declined quite a few times, suggesting less demand from the futures market.

However, things changed in the last few days as the funding rate went up. Though DOT has always been in the news for its development activity, last week the scenario was different as the graph declined.
