• Tezos surges 18% since the dip to $2.5250 in February.
  • Tezos community votes-in a network upgrade that saw the gas limit increase.

Tezos (XTZ) has a way of keeping investors, traders and cryptocurrency enthusiasts on their toes guessing what move it is going to make next. While the majority, if not all cryptocurrencies are trading at levels higher compared to those in December last year, Tezos is among the cryptoassets (if not the only one) that have traded new all-time highs in 2020.

Tezos spiked from $1.2270 (traded on January 1, 2020) to $3,94 (all-time highs). However, the bearish wave that has been sweeping through the crypto market since February saw it dive to $2.5250 (recent low). The trading in March has been massively yielding for Tezos compared to other altcoins in the market. XTZ/USD is up 18% from the recent low (February) to teeter at $3.0824 (market value).
