▪ AlphaDrops Case Study: CRV, VELO, OP_thetie
Over the past few weeks, vote-escrow (or ve) tokens have seen an outsized move in both discussion and price. Through the Coins Profile on SigDev, I was able to quickly pinpoint and evaluate the events that caused spikes. The Coins Profile is a new product we just rolled out that gives users a comprehensive overview of each token, and provides benchmarks to identify relative opportunities.
With the use of the new page, I was able to supplement on-chain analytics through our news/sentiment data and research charting to discover that action was largely driven by two major catalysts- Curve and Velodrome/Optimism. While one spike was unexpected, following the resulting information through SigDev allowed us to clearly see a surge in VELO and OP positive factors days before their token price jump.
