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.
Do you have any of these coins in your portfolio?
— CoinGecko (@coingecko) July 18, 2021
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.

Where to put $100 right now
Benzinga’s Breakout trader is already up over 400% this year… and that was before he uncovered the next Netflix…
This former buy-and-hold investor learned to buy breakout stocks... so he quit his job and began trading full time.
And for the first time ever, Benzinga is inviting you to trade along with him:
How I've Made 400% Returns So Far in 2021
'Covid Stocks' is a phrase that does no justice to how well these trades have treated me this year. Trading against two giant sell-offs and unprecedented market volatility takes more than an eye for good stay-at-home picks: It takes hard work and deep technical knowledge.
And that's exactly what I've brought to the table for my subscribers this year, picking winner after winner leading to huge breakout gains. Plus I've maintained such a risk-off stop loss strategy, you could say it's impossible to regret following my trademark, Alpha Factor system.
That's why today I'm opening Benzinga Breakout to the public -- to share the wealth, so to speak. And show new traders and investors just how easy it can be to beat this crazy market against all odds!
