The rally in the global crypto market appears to be paused on early Wednesday, partly hit by the declines in Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). The market cap of the global cryptocurrency market fell 3.29% to US$2.09 trillion at 4:59 am ET on April 6, while its overall volume for the last 24 hours jumped 7.67% to US$115.02 billion.
Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) plummeted 2.74% and 4.69% to US$45,383.50 and US$3,356.88, respectively. However, gains in various altcoins like Synapse (SYN) have helped the market to remain above the US$2 trillion mark.
What is Synapse (SYN)?
Synapse can be described as a cross-chain layer protocol that facilitates interoperability between the blockchains. It claims to power integral blockchain activities like asset transferring, swapping, and generalized messaging with cross-chain functionality by offering decentralized and permissionless transactions between L1, sidechain, or L2 ecosystems.
In addition, it also enables new primitives based on its cross-chain architecture while providing the services mentioned above.
Synapse's native utility token, SYN, powers the Synapse ecosystem. It also enables the holders or users for community governance votes through SynapseDAO and incentivizes the liquidity providers that allow the cross-chain functionality of the protocol.
The token is available for buying, selling, or trading on crypto exchanges like Gate.io, BKEX, Coinbase Exchange, etc.
