While bitcoin has struggled to climb over key resistance levels, altcoins enjoyed some decent gains over Friday and Saturday. Most notable was the top 25 project, Avalanche (AVAX). AVAX was up over 30% on Saturday. The move comes off the back of a prolonged one-month bullish run for the project that sees AVAX up nearly 400%. The project is now not far from it’s all-time high. The bullish price action from AVAX can be credited to the recent announcement that the project is set to offer liquidity mining for Curve (CRV) and Aave (AAVE). With $180 million in tokens to be provided for the program.
