Pancake Swap started its recovery in the past week and yielded nearly 12% gains over the weekend. DEX’s token has been teasing a launch of a new bridge and this is likely a bullish catalyst. Moreover, sentiment among crypto market participants has improved as the SEC’s crackdown has been limited to altcoins and Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solutions like Solana (SOL) or Polygon (MATIC), among others. 

Uniswap (UNI) price rallied 21% since June 19, climbing from June 19 open of $4.48 to $5.44 on Monday. Over the weekend, UNI yielded 11.7% gains. The DeFi token was one of the top performers among decentralized finance tokens ranked by market capitalization. 

Despite recent decline in network growth and user activity, UNI price continued its upward trend on Binance. Find out more about Uniswap’s on-chain activity here.

In May, crypto intelligence tracker Santiment predicted that Serum (SRM) price is bottoming out, noting that altcoins continue flushing out as Bitcoin recovers. Since then, SRM price has nearly doubled, climbing from $0.080 to $0.124 between May 10 and Monday.

SRM price rally gathered steam over the past week, rallying 125%, from $0.055 to $0.124, rewarding holders with three-digit gains. The DeFi token ranks among top gainers while altcoins in the top 30 attempt a slow recovery on Monday.
