Trakx best performer was Top10 PoS (+32%) thanks to Cardano (ADA +52%) following the announcement of smart-contract functionality from next month. Trakx Top 10 NFT (+25%) was the second best last week, having now recovered from the past few month’s sell-off. NFTs were boosted by Axie Infinity (AXS +59%) thanks to recent successes of Alchemy Pay Crypto and Harvest Finance.
