DataDash server deals with decentralized finance (DeFi) platform Aave (AAVE), which has seen a 63% rally against Bitcoin (AAVE/BTC) in the past 12 days. He thinks that there is a big break in price in AAVE. Merten is also looking at Uniswap (UNI), which he noted has rebounded nicely against BTC after a slow fall during the summer and fall months. He said UNI has the foundation to move forward for a higher breakout.
The rising YFI is also on Merten’s radar, after Yearn Finance announced that it has repurchased some of the circulating YFIs recently. Merten concludes his analysis with the developer-friendly, layer-1 DeFi protocol Radix (XRD).
