Why is it rising?

There could be various reasons that may have triggered the recent rally of the STG token. Given the robust gains, it can be considered one of the fastest-growing cryptos.

Stargate started its token auction on March 17, selling 100 million STG tokens that sold out almost instantaneously. They auctioned 10% of the total token supply of the STG tokens to raise around US$25 million USDC.

Notably, the sole purchaser of all the tokens was Alameda Research, reflecting how the project has attracted the interests of Venture Capital (VC) firms.

Meanwhile, the developers had to reallocate tokens to the users who missed out on the auction event. These incidents could have created hype about the project among the investors.

In addition to that, as of March 26, the company had US$3 billion in total value locked (TVL). Talking about its listings, it announced FTX and BYBIT listings on March 25. These developments could have triggered the recent rally of the STG tokens.
