Algorand recently received a big boost for its blockchain ecosystem courtesy of Hivemind Capital’s $25 million investment to the decentralized finance (DeFi) Layer 1 chain.
- Algorand DeFi ecosystem just reached a new record in total locked value
- ALGO experienced a price increase of 3.23% before seeing minor price corrections once more
- Altcoin will be volatile in the coming days
A crypto-focused investor firm, Algorand Investments announced on Wednesday that it had deployed 80,000,000 ALGO tokens in various governance and defi programs.
ALGO traded for $0.31 at that point, making the total worth of deployed tokens $25 million.
Hivemind Capital’s input catapulted the total locked value (TLV) into Algorand to a new all-time high of$270 million. On a week-to-date basis, at that time, the blockchain’s TLV increased by as much as 53.95%.
The massive cash inflow, it turned out, didn’t just help the network with its total locked value, as Algorand’s social dominance and ALGO price also increased.
Algorand’s Social Engagement up to 1,000%
According to data shared by LunarCrush, Algorand’s social engagement surged by 1,220% over the last seven days as it peaked at 12.78 million at the time of this writing.
This meant that ALGO had captured the attention of large parts of the cryptocurrency community, according to the cryptocurrency social intelligence company.
Aside from that, there is the FIFA world cup which might be of interest to both blockchain and crypto. Algorand has announced its sponsorship of this highly anticipated sporting event five months back.
