The bulls of Bitcoin (BTC) had to be hit again on December 17th when a midday attack brought the price down to $ 45,500. The price quickly bounced back to $ 47,000, but a fresh daily low could be a sign of further downward movement.
In the midst of the market crash, several altcoins provided weary traders with a source of refuge as token buybacks and increased network activity helped prop up their prices and protect them from the storm.
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView show that the biggest gains over the past 24 hours have been Yearn.finance (YFI), Hxro (HXRO) and Arweave (AR).
YFI benefits from the token buyback
Yearn.finance is a decentralized financial aggregation (DeFi) service that enables investors to maximize their income from the income economy through automation.
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView show that YFI’s price, after hitting a low of $ 18,844 on December 15, rose 56.48% to a daily high of $ 29,488 on 17,844 million.
YFI’s sudden surge is because the project revealed that it has been buying back tokens since November after the community voted to improve the YFI tokenomy. To date, the log has bought 282.4 YFIs at an average price of $ 26,651, indicating that further buybacks will come in the future using funds from the project’s $ 45 million treasury.
