But, there’s something much stronger that has pushed IOST’s price in 2021. IOST has soared over 650% this year backed by DeFi integrations, NFT functionality, and staking support from major exchanges.
Recently, there has been much hype for decentralized finance (DeFi) and nonfungible tokens (NFTs) in the crypto sphere. The advancement in the blockchain world has introduced new ways for digital currencies and DeFi and NFTs are one of them. IOST is one protocol that has been capitalizing on these growing movements to help expand its community.
The NFT functionality combined with a new marketplace—where users can trade IOST—has increased support for staking from top exchanges. This has led to a massive rise in IOST’s trading volume in the last two months.
IOST has significantly risen in this year until now. The digital asset’s upcoming trend will be based on the movement of Bitcoin. As we write this, IOST was trading around $0.038, up by 21.87% and 9.87% against BTC.
