The Ethereum news today show that ETH has undergone a strong surge in the past 24 hours as buyers stepped back into the crypto market. The cryptocurrency has gained 5% overnight and the leading DeFi coins add up to its gains, forced by the new price of ETH at $368. Meanwhile, Bitcoin is only up around 1.5%.
The buying was triggered by the ending of a seeming capitulation in the altcoin market on Tuesday and Wednesday, which was coupled with the news of ongoing stimulus discussions. These discussions drove the value of the US dollar lower, and drove the alternative cryptocurrencies known as altcoins, higher.
However, DeFi coins add up to the gains of Ethereum, supporting it over the past 24 to 48 hours. Most coins pertaining to the space are up by 5% to 20% in the past 24 hours. In that manner, Ethereum’s strong move triggered a sea of green for the DeFi market.
Reports from CoinGecko show that the leading DeFi coins gained 5% to 20% over the past 24 hours, and these include the names of Band Protocol (BAND), Nexus Mutual (NXM), and Yeran.finance (YFI) as some of the most successful DeFi coins on the market today.
Band Protocol is up by around 15% in the past 24 hours, and the altcoin news show that Binance Launchpad’s yield farming opportunities have brought the tokens BAND and ALPHA to the spotlight.
On the other hand, we can also see Yearn.finance and how it gained over 10% as DeFi coins add up to the Ethereum gains. Andre Cronje, who is the founder of the project, confirmed that he is still working on it. The Ethereum-based YFI is also rallying after a number of large short holders closed their positions. The closure of these shorts also forced the price higher as confidence returned to the market.
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple’s XRP token, Bitcoin Cash, Polkadot, and Binance Coin are all of the coins that are surging this Saturday. An impressive surge is also seen from Chainlink (LINK), which managed to get above $10.70 with a 13% surge. Right after LINK, we can see the Cardano news and the ADA token gaining more than 12% overnight, and positioning itself above $0.10 again.
