DeFi tokens see double-digit gains as Ethereum and Bitcoin chase new highs

The cryptocurrency market’s momentum is rising after a solid rally by Bitcoin (BTC), which brought its price back to $66,000, and Ether (ETH) reached a new record high of $4,793. The market rally was sparked by the gains of the two largest cryptocurrencies. It has now reached $3 trillion.

Contrary to previous rallies, where BTC gained significant profits at the expense the altcoin markets, this time, the majority of tokens within the top 200 are also in the green. Many projects have seen double-digit gains.
