A growing interest in decentralized finance, basically anything in blockchain or cryptocurrency, is driving up the prices for Avalanche (AVAX), Helium (HNT) and Pickle. Partnership announcements to enter new markets and new services are also responsible for these three alt coins increased popularity.

Avalanche (AVAX)

Avalanche is a platform for launching applications and assets exchange with AVAX being their native token for payments and rewards. It's the first smart contracts network to offer one-second payment finalization. Avalanche can also handle higher traction volumes than Bitcoin. Congestion and high gas fees on other DeFi platforms are driving users to Avalanche.

Institutional AVAX traders can now use Copper’s ClearLoop, a secure trading and storage platform. They will enjoy effortless access to leading exchanges in a secure closed environment with multi-party wallet technology.

Helium (HNT)

Helium was created in 2013 with the goal of building a peer-to-peer wireless network for connected devices. Helium recently entered into a partnership with HBTC to enter the Southeast Asian market with China being their first objective. Miners receive rewards in $HNT when they help create a wireless network for the IoT. Miners don't mine traditionally; instead, they provide low-power network coverage for devices on the IoT. There are more than 18,000 active hotspots today, which is expected to rise when Helium enters China.


Pickle Finance is a yield farming protocol using a native ERC-20 token. Pickle recently launched two new Pickle Jars with BAC/DAI and MIC/USDT, both of which are offering high yields. People who lock their Pickle tokens for four years get DILL, the company's token which they cannot trade. Investors earn rewards along with various fees.

Pickle Finance lets investors take advantage of good DeIFi investment opportunities easily. The company pools investor's money in smart contracts using automated strategies.
