Cryptocurrencies have been going on a rampage lately. On March 11, 2020, we saw a historic coronavirus-induced Bitcoin dip of over 50% which sent shockwaves of fear across the entire crypto space, shook the faith of many crypto believers and made us question Bitcoin’s status as a safe-haven asset. However, last week came with a new ray of hope as Bitcoin made an amazing recovery which at one point neared 90% and decoupled from the other traditional assets.
It was quite amazing to see the rest of the cryptocurrency market go up with the price of Bitcoin recovering. Bitcoin reached as high as $6,800 last week. At the time of writing this post, the cryptocurrency market capitalization is at $119 billion and Bitcoin’s dominance is at 65.6%.

EOS versus Eth Defi
The volatility of the markets last week served as a litmus test for the Ethereum and EOS Network. Defi platforms MakerDAO and Equilibrium were confronted with a lot of volatility that made the made of lot of people in the long position to get liquidated.
