The IoTeX (IOTX), the Ethereum network token that feeds the IoTeX platform, soared 300% in the last 24 hours, jumping from US$ 0.030 to US$ 0.121 this Wednesday morning (11). The data is from CoinMarketCap. Around 10:30 am, the digital asset had a slight retreat and dropped to US$ 0.095, but the price is still 200% higher than that registered the day before. The meteoric blast came a day after Coinbase Pro, the US broker's trading platform, announced the listing of the token. The availability of a new asset on the exchange usually causes a price increase, a behavior known in the market as the “Coinbase Effect”. IOTX negotiations, according to information provided by the company, will be released from 1:00 pm on this Wednesday (Brasilia time). Currency Chart (Source: CoinMarketCap)
What Ethereum token is this?
