🏄 Most alts did not do much better. ETH (-4.98%) mostly followed BTC’s trends, trading under $4k for most of the week. BNB (-7%) did worse. And ADA (-7.6%) extended its fifth consecutive week of losses, now down 60% since its all-time high. However, some tokens posted gains.

For example, Yearn.Finance has announced that it bought back $7.6 million worth of YFI token, which closed the week with +21%. Arweave’s AR (+41%) did even better, breaking out after six weeks of continuous sell-off.

The Stoic portfolio holds both tokens.
