As the cryptocurrency market finally sees some green after weeks of uncertainty following the FTX implosion, some assets are outperforming others, including the blockchain gaming token Axie Infinity (AXS).

AXS, which stands for Axie Infinity Shards, is gaining double digits on its daily chart, with its price increasing by 28% in the last 7 days at the time of writing.

As cryptocurrency traders swarm to take advantage of the volatility from the previous weeks to gain some returns on their investments, the decentralized finance (DeFi) token is simultaneously experiencing a massive increase in trading volume.

Following the recent price increase, AXS current price is $8.86. The coin’s overhead resistance was $9, then $9.72. Moving above $9.72 will assist AXS in breaking through the $10 resistance level. The previously mentioned price ceiling has proven difficult for bulls, as the altcoin has been rejected at that level in recent months.

As per given chart on December 5 , AXS has seen a significant bullish move. AXS is currently experiencing some minor consolidation following the initial large move up.
