Altcoins secure double-digit gains after Bitcoin surges toward $33K

Charts turned green as Bitcoin (BTC) price rallied to $32,858, but a number of analysts also cautioned that the market may not be out of the woods yet. 

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that the top movers over the past 24-hours were Telcoin (TEL), Polygon (MATIC) and Axie Infinity (AXS), indicating that the recovery is widespread and not just confined to large-cap cryptocurrencies.

TEL rallied 71% from a low of $0.0091 on July 20 to an intraday high at $0.0158 to as its 24-hour trading volume surged 136% to $43 million.

Interest in the project received a noticeable uptick following the introduction of “DeFi agents” on the Fetch protocol, which are designed to help users manage their liquidity and protect it from impermanent loss or rug pulls.

MATIC price surges after the release of Polygon Studios

The second-best performing token on the 24-hour charts is Polygon (MATIC), the popular layer-two solution for the Ethereum (ETH) network that has seen a significant increase in adoption over the first half of 2021.

VORTECS™ data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro began to detect a bullish outlook for MATIC on July 20, prior to the recent price rise.

The VORTECS™ Score, exclusive to Cointelegraph, is an algorithmic comparison of historic and current market conditions derived from a combination of data points including market sentiment, trading volume, recent price movements and Twitter activity.

The surging momentum for Polygon is in large part due to the release of Polygon Studios, the protocol’s “new arm for the blockchain gaming and NFT ecosystem.”

AXS regains momentum

The third-best performer over the past 24-hours was Axie Infinity (AXS), an NFT-focused protocol that rallied more than 1,000% over the past month thanks to soaring user activity and the income opportunities it offers users in economically disadvantaged countries.

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