Few things in the cryptocurrency space generate more hype than a new token listing because the prospect of finding a rare 1000x coin continues to be a top goal of many crypto investors.
Coin98 (C98) is the most recent example of this phenomenon after the Binance Smart Chain-based decentralized finance (DeFi) solution rallied 1,200% from its initial coin offering price at $0.075 to $0.928 on its first day being listed on exchanges.

Coin98 is the 20th project to come out of the Binance Launchpad and describes itself as “a DeFi gateway for traditional finance users to access any DeFi services on multiple blockchains.”
Along with being listed on Binance, C98 is also available to trade on Gate.io and MEXC Global and token holders can also earn a yield through staking and liquidity pool options on PancakeSwap (CAKE).
Altcoins post double-digit gains
Bitcoin's (BTC) rally to $33,000 led to a prolonged boost in several altcoins and data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows Ampleforth (AMPL), Amp (AMP) and Axie Infinity (AXS) as the top movers over the past 24 hours.
AXS's month-long rally picked up steam again after the price rebounded from its lower support touch at $14 and the rally in AMPL demonstrates the benefit of cross-protocol integrations.

According to Ampleforth's Twitter, the new-found interest in AMPL is the result of the token being added to the AAVE DeFi ecosystem
