The Curve DAO Token (CRV) is an Ethereum-based token that powers the Curve.fi ecosystem, a blockchain-based decentralized exchange using automated market makers. The Curve protocol connects users who wish to exchange ERC-20 tokens and stablecoins.
Being the native token of the Curve Finance ecosystem, CRV is used for governance voting and claiming protocol fees on the network. In the last 30 days, the Curve DAO Token has been one of the most talked-about cryptos. Here’s why.
Curve DAO Token (CRV) Price Updates
Most cryptos have experienced significant pull-backs since the ETF-powered rally helped major cryptos to hit new all-time highs. The Curve DAO Token has been one of the stand-out performers, recording gains while the market retraced.
In the last 24 hours, CRV has gained by more than 20%, sending the price up to a new yearly high of $5.30. Over the last 30 days, the price of the Curve DAO Token has more than doubled, with CRV gaining 115% in the process.
On the back of its recent gains, the Curve DAO Token (CRV) is now trading at $5.04470, at the time of writing. Curve Finance is ranked as the 63rd largest crypto project, with a market cap of $2.089 billion.

Sustaining this bullish momentum will see CRV retest a 12-month high of $5.6. If CRV breaks through the resistance level of $5.6, the token could rally up to $6.1 before meeting another test.
Recent Developments and Future Developments
Along with its recent price boost, Curve Finance has recorded major growth in 2021. At the start of the year, the total value locked (TVL) in Curve Finance was approximately $1.5 billion.

As of October 28th, Curve Finance has a TVL of $15.07 billion, making it the 3rd largest decentralized finance protocol. Along with CRV’s price rise, the Curve Finance network has been at the center of some remarkable growth.
On October 26th, Equilibrium, a DeFi money market, announced that it had launched the official implementation of Curve.Fi’s automated market maker, Epsilon, on the Kusama Network. Epsilon makes Curve.fi’s AMM interoperable between Ethereum and the Binance Smart Chain.
Epsilon is currently featured on Genshiro, Equilibrium’s Kusama-based canary network. Looking toward the future, Equilibrium has revealed that Epsilon will also be integrated into the Polkadot network, giving it more reach.
Prior to launching on Kusama, the crypto pool of Curve Finance was launched on Harmony Protocol. Harmony is a fast and open blockchain for decentralized applications. Harmony users can now access all of the pools on the Curve.fi network.
Curve is a fully decentralized network that gives users the ability to vote for or against developments on the network. Users are currently voting on a proposal to add bveCVX (which is issued by Badger, a DAO protocol dedicated to bringing BTC to DeFi.) & CVX factory pool 17 to the Gauge Controller of the Curve.fi network.
On The Flipside
- Regardless of the recent strong performance of Curve DAO Token (CRV), the token lies far below its all-time high.
- In August 2020, CRV hit an ATH of $60.50. As of this writing, the token is trading at 91% less than it was over a year ago
