GMX token (GMX/USD) benefits from FTX collapse and breaks from consolidation
GMX token has more than doubled in price
The DEX has witnessed increased activity in November
GMX broke from consolidation and is a buy on a retracement
GMX token (GMX/USD) has doubled in price. Trading at just $25 on November 10, the cryptocurrency touched a high of $59 on December 2. The gains come amid an influx of investors post-FTX collapse. As of press time, GMX was trading at $56.
The collapse of the FTX exchange fueled demand for decentralised exchanges or DEX. Among the DEXs that became popular were GMX and Uniswap. Both platforms saw increased investors’ interest, fueling gains in the native tokens. Yet, on November 28, GMX saw $1.15 million in daily trading fees. The fees surpassed those earned by Uniswap for the first time in history. That underlined that investors look at the lesser-known DEX as a serious rival to Uniswap.
Market analyst Zen commented on the recent performance of GMX compared to Uniswap. The market analyst says GMX’s performance stems from investors receiving favourable trading fees of about 30%. Users on Uniswap do not get shares from the protocol’s trading fees. Zen says that GMX is a buy-and-hold in the bear market. He also lauds the platform as being the second-highest platform consistently after Uniswap.
