AXS continues its week-long surgeThe second-best 24-hour performer is Axie Infinity (AXS), a blockchain-based trading and battling game that allows players to collect, breed, raise, battle and trade token-based creatures known as Axies.

This development comes on the heels of a $10 billion investment by Block.one to build Bullish Global, an exchange based on EOSIO protocol and it points to a growing list of use cases for the delegated-proof-of-stake (DPoS) platform.
