Curve DAO Token’s recent triple-digit surge is fueled by crypto-friendly policies, growing user activity, and a recent collaboration with Yearn Finance. The whole DeFi sector has been on a strong rise for the previous two weeks. It has many of the top market cap tokens rallying by double and triple digits. The governance token CRV from Curve DAO has been a remarkable performer, rising from a low of $0.54 on January 11 to a high of $1.78 on January 17.

Collaborations with YFI have tended to cause sharp breakouts in DeFi token prices. This is similar to the days when any partnership or integration announcement from Chainlink (LINK) would bring a rapid rise in volume and price.
Take, for example, Cream Finance and SushiSwap, which both increased by more than 100 percent following the announcement of Yearn.finance’s cooperation.
Following Cronje’s tweet, CRV’s trading volume increased from $59 million to $350 million, and a follow-up tweet on Jan. 15 provided an update on the collaboration’s progress, stating the update of crv.finance; permissionless pool creation added, allowing anyone to create a curve pool that can swap to DAI, USDC, or USDT.
This boosted the price to $1.23 and increased the 24-hour trading volume to $478 million.

Curve also benefited from the revelation on January 17 that cross-asset swaps via Synthetix.io are now available. This sparked a new wave of high-volume trading. Moreover, CRV achieved a new high of $1.78 just hours after the announcement.
