Sushi, the governance token of the Uniswap fork – SushiSwap, has reacted accordingly to the quick rise of the new trend in decentralized exchange protocols. As SushiSwap just passed over $1 billion locked in TVL, the token has skyrocketed by 150% in the past 24 hours alone and has entered the top 100.

According to CoinGecko, Sushi traded at $0.70 on August 29th. With its price currently sitting at $7.70, this represents a three-day price surge of 1,000%.

Further gains are visible from Kusama (38%), BitShares (28%), Serum (27%), another Sushi-related coin – UMA (27%), Compound (22%), and Ren (19%). Tron is also advancing price-wise with a 15% surge following the partnership with Band Protocol announced yesterday.

In contrast, after reaching an all-time high of over $5,500 a few days back, DFI.Money continues its retrace with another 16% dump to $3,500. Loopring (-9%), bZx Protocol (-8%), Flexacoin (-7%), and Ocean Protocol (-6%) are also in the red.

Bitcoin Tops $11,900 But Dominance At A Low

In the past 24 hours, BTC firstly reached an intraday high of nearly $11,800, where it got rejected and dumped to its daily low of about $11,550 shortly after. However, the bull quickly took charge again and pushed the price further upwards to its current level just shy $11,900.

Exploring the weekly scale, BTC is up by 7% since the low marked on August 27th at $11,150. If Bitcoin plans to continue on its price pump, it has to take down the first resistance level at $12,000 before having a chance to fight for a new yearly high above $12,450.

In case it drops in value, it can rely on $11,600, $11,400, and $11,100 as support before the psychological line of $11,000.
