Why Is Cronos (CRO) Crypto Rising?
Why is it rising?
There could be different reasons for the price rally. For instance, on March 22, Crypto.com announced that it would be an official sponsor of the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar from Nov 21 to Dec 18. It marks another milestone in Crypto.com's efforts to enter the sports space.
The agreement would allow Crypto.com's name to be put up around the tournament venue and in the stadium broadcast view. However, the sponsorship amount was not immediately known.
Another reason could be the company's recent announcement of its new feature, Account Protection Program (APP), for its App and Exchange users in selected markets.
The company claims that this would enhance users’ account security. Some of the APP’s features include multi-factor authentication (MFA), anti-phishing code, and tool to prevent jailbreaking. The AAP is currently live in Brazil, the company said on March 23.
