While there has been discussion in the past as to whether or not a Coinbase listing could still have a positive impact on price movement, today’s announcement led to double-digit rallies for all three projects on an otherwise red market day.


The Ankr Network is a blockchain-based distributed computing platform that provides developers with an easy and inexpensive way to deploy multiple blockchains to harness the idle power of devices and data centers.

ANKR has been in a hot phase since the beginning of February. The price rose 900% from a low of $ 0.011 on February 1 to a record high of $ 0.109 following the announcement by Coinbase, and multiple announcements of partnerships and protocol upgrades resulted in a steady price increase in trading volume.

According to data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro, market conditions have been favorable for ANKR for some time.

After the ANKR price fell on March 21st, VORTECS ™ began rising again, hitting a high of 76 on March 23rd, five hours before the price rose 36% after the listing was announced.

The CRV price continued to decline over the next two days, while the VORTECS ™ value remained stable and turned green several times. It hit a high of 66 on March 22, ten hours before the price would rally 48%.


Storj (STORJ) is an Ethereum-based token that supports a cloud storage platform called Tardigrade, which uses a decentralized network of nodes to securely host user data using advanced encryption.

When users upload files to Tardigrade, portions of each file are distributed to the global network of independent nodes that store the data until someone requests a specific file. At this point, they will be safely recompiled and made available for download.

This process enables files to be stored securely without having to trust a central data center such as Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud. Users of the network who make their resources such as unused hard disk space and bandwidth available for Tardigrade receive STORJ tokens as a reward.

Since hitting a low of $ 0.445 on February 23, when the cryptocurrency market saw a sharp correction, STORJ’s price rose 311% to a high of $ 1.83, following Coinbase’s announcement on March 23.

While the significant price growth over the past 24 hours for ANKR, CRV and STORJ shows that the Coinbase surge remains a strong source of price movement, the steady growth and adoption of the project was a more important driver of their price action.

From cloud storage, computing power and unused bandwidth to decentralized financing and stock exchanges, decentralized networks are growing in importance and strength, with no signs of an imminent slowdown.
