My DeFi Pet (DPET) Defies Crypto Market Slump With 42% Surge

My DeFi Pet (CRYPTO: DPET) soared nearly 42% at press time even as the global cryptocurrency market capitalization fell 2.55% to $1.28 trillion.

Over the week, DPET has soared a whopping 295.27%.

Why Is It Moving: DPET was the top trending token on CoinGecko at press time. It was followed by Axie Infinity (CRYPTO: AXS), another game-themed token that has surged in the recent past

CoinGecko noted on Twitter that gaming tokens like DPET, AXS, and Smooth Love Potion (CRYPTO: SLP) occupy the top three slots among trending coins. SLP is an in-game token in the Axie Infinity universe.

The push for these tokens is due to enthusiasm for these games in Asia. It was reported previously that Axie Infinity players can earn significant amounts, in some cases equivalent to monthly salaries in some low-income countries.
