The year 2021 is truly the year of Decentralized Exchanges (DEX) and with so many popping off and capturing the market attention. Unlike CEX platforms, DEXs rely on Smart Contracts allowing users to trade Crypto without third-party.
The DEX protocol’s latest price action could be partially described by the SEC’s recent lawsuit against Coinbase. And China banning Cryptocurrency trading resulted in many Chinese users flooding into the growing DeFi ecosystem. Chinese popular CeFi exchanges such as Binance and Huobi scrambled to drop with a huge number of investors switching to DEX DyDx.
DEX platforms continue to be the most cost-effective platforms by revenue generated. Recently, three DeFi protocols recorded over $100 million in annualized revenue. The DYDX protocol alone generated close to $500 annualized revenue last month. And many other protocols including Yearn.finance, MakerDAO generated massive gains with a surge in global DeFi trading volume.
Top 5 DEXs To Watch Out For in 2021!
The smart-contract-based blockchain network Tezos, in September, has regained most of its losses that occurred in the May market crash. The DeFi protocol is trading at $6.57 at the press time with a spike of 11.31% in the last 24 hours.
XTZ price seems to be forming a symmetrical triangle pattern. In the first week of September, the token formed the first bull flag jumping from $3.9 to $6.7. With a slight pullback in mid-September, Tezos surged from $4.5 to $6.6. Hence, with continuing in the symmetrical pattern, XTZ price seems to breakout at $6 for a bigger price hunt in the coming days!
Breakout in a symmetrical pattern could result in a price spike over $8. Failing to do so would result in a huge price dip to well below $5.
In the 4th quarter, Terra Luna may heavily boost its price. Terra price was up 9.90% at $37.90 at the press time. The network has seen a previous major resistance at $33.15.

The Serum price has surged by 6.67% in the last 24 hours. The current price of the asset stands at $7.707.
