Other 2020/11/15 00:10 by Nick Chong

The decentralized finance (DeFi) space has surged higher in the past day once again despite stagnation in the Bitcoin price. The prices of leading cryptocurrency pertaining to this space have shot higher almost across the board.

According to CoinGecko, top coins in the span have gained a number of percent in the past 24 hours.

Altcoins such as SushiSwap’s SUSHI, Compound (COMP), Thorchain (RUNE), Aave (AAVE), and others have gained 10% in the past 24 hours alone. A number of other leading DeFi coins have gained 5-10% in the past day as well.

Top DeFi Coin SushiSwap Rallying On Anticipation of Uniswap Migration

SushiSwap’s SUSHI coin appears to be rallying as a result of the second-order effects of Uniswap’s liquidity mining campaign. On the 17th, Uniswap’s liquidity mining scheme will end, which will result in an influx of stablecoins, ETH, and Wrapped Bitcoin into the DeFi market.

There are some that believe this will result in an influx of capital inflows into SushiSwap, which is a fork of Uniswap. An increase in TVL would likely benefit SUSHI as many would see this as validation of the cryptocurrency.

SUSHI is also benefiting from developments being made to the platform.

Developers of the DeFi exchange are currently working on a number of features including limit orders, a lending solution (one-sided lending), and a system to mitigate impermanent loss for users.

ThorChain After Beta Version of Bitcoin Swaps

ThorChain’s RUNE coin is rallying shortly after the project revealed a beta/testnet version of its Bitcoin swap. With this new system, users will be able to swap for assets on other chains using native BTC.

Analysts think that the cryptocurrency is one of the best bets in the DeFi space.
