BurgerSwap and BakerySwap Raise Binance Coin Prices To ATH
Two new DeFi clones have caused a sharp jump in the price of Binance Coin.

Not a week has passed that at least one DeFi protocol hasn’t been cloned to trigger another leap in liquidity for a new generation of income hunters.
The two DeFi clones are called BurgerSwap and BakerySwap, both forks of Uniswap and both have chosen Binance Smart Chain. The first was launched over the weekend, raising nearly $ 400 million in liquidity through the BNB token.
BURGER tokens can be issued through the provision of liquidity, with ten percent returned to the anonymous team behind the duplicate DeFi. Liquidity pools are provided in BNB pairs instead of ETH, which is likely the reason for the recent price spike.

COVID-19 Shook Retail Investors, But Grew Courage to BTC Whales
Some bought a dip, others decided to wait.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, retail and institutional bitcoin investors have taken vastly different approaches as new research by OKEx Insights and Catallact has shown.
The study, which looked at data on BTC transactions on the network from January to early August 2020, found that retail investors have largely retreated and adopted a wait and see strategy with Bitcoin. On the other hand, larger and possibly more institutional investors have accumulated BTC. The report excludes transactions during most of August and September when prices fell.
