Analysis of Alpaca Finance's Weekly Burn Buybacks

24 million ALPACA tokens sent to hades as the price of ALPACA begins to stabilize.

APACA Took it on the Chin but Still Punching 

Coin burning is a deflationary measure that reduces an asset's supply.  This is often done in an effort to shore up the value of a token by increasing its scarcity.  

Since the first burn transaction in March 2021, the reverse has been the case for the ALPACA token from Alpaca Finance as its price has followed the waves of euphoria and despair in the crypto markets.  After rising to a high above $3.00 in May of 2021, the token entered a steady decline with the broader crypto market bottoming out below $0.20.   

Currently changing hands at $0.2767, the token's price represents a rally of over 30%  Cold comfort for hodlers, but showing signs of life.  


Speaking to BSC News on steps taken to ensure continued interest in its token, Samsara, Head of Strategy & Marketing at Alpaca Finance remarked:

“As for reviving interest, half our tokens are locked up in governance for 3/4 of a year. There seems to be plenty of interest. We’re a company, not a meme coin that we need to focus on creating buying interest for a token. Just like how in traditional markets, companies improve their businesses instead of doing marketing for their stock.

This is certainly true for Alpaca.  Deploying groundbreaking DeFi primitives in a stacking that takes advantage of EVM composability has attracted considerable TVL since launch, currently over $500 million.
