In this section, we will examine how the market, with price changes, evaluates project progress. It seems important to us if the project is outside of the usual tide of crypto project prices. In order to make an appropriate peer comparison, we gauged the ZEN (Horizen) coin with the 2100NEWS DA Coin Index (NWSCo100). Looking at the daily chart below, we see the ZEN vs. NWSCo100 at the top, the original ZEN price in the middle of the chart, and NWSCo100 and the correlation between ZEN and NWSCo100 at the bottom. On average (violet area chart), the relationship between ZEN and NWSCo100  has shown that it was weaker during the recovery rally in April. Over the last four months, NWSCo100 has outperformed it by 31%. However, if we compare the ZEN green area graph with the orange index area graph while observing the correlation graph, the correlation graph gives us an explanation that the correlation is strong (Pearson’s correlation coefficient = 0.87).  ZEN was moving in the same direction as the NWSCo100 but grew more slowly in the recovery phase and fell behind the index. It terms of price changes, it was a good representative of the NWSCo100 index.
