2.2. NVT Ratio
💡The NVT ratio compares a cryptocurrency’s market cap to its transaction volume. A high ratio suggests a potential bubble since the market cap is outpacing the transaction volume. A low ratio indicates an undervalued token.
P.S. The NVT ratio for each crypto varies. Remember that this ratio shouldn’t be looked at in isolation and must always be combined with other indicators.
