Why is this Crypto Exchange Outperforming?
Gate.io is a global cryptocurrency exchange, currently ranking #9 in terms of daily trading volume... And LikeFolio data suggests that it's still on the rise.
Earlier this year, Investor chatter surrounding Gate.io’s platform boomed to impressive new highs alongside the cryptocurrency market.
Unlike the markets at large, investors' mentions of the Gate.io ecosystem are maintaining significant strength: +1905% YoY and +209% QoQ.
Why the unusual strength? Gate.io’s robust offering of passive income opportunities provides one possible explanation.
The exchange facilitates P2P liquidity swapping, where users can earn a fixed interest rate by lending their tokens to active traders and institutions.
Additionally, Gate.io provides group staking opportunities (read more about crypto staking: here).
Like the #1 cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, Gate.io offers a unique exchange token called GateToken ($GT-USD).
This deflationary token serves a wide variety of purposes on its native blockchain. More importantly, it allows Gate.io raise collateral, reward user loyalty, and provides both individuals and institutions with a means to invest in the exchange itself.
Leveraging GateToken and other crypto holdings, Gate.io also issues an overcollateralized stablecoin: USDG ($USDG-USD).
Combined investor Mentions for these two unique tokens are trending +991% YoY and +84% QoQ.
Binance supports ~50x the daily trading volume of Gate.io, and yet Binance Coin ($BNB-USD) boasts a market cap more than 200x higher than that of GateToken.
We'll be watching this up-and-coming exchange to see if it continues to steal market share going forward.
