As the market fluctuates amid a tussle between the bulls and bears, some altcoins are seeing huge gains., Akash Network and The Graph prices are surging: Why?

A dose of positive news has injected fresh optimism in some of these projects, a scenario that could see them rally higher in coming days and weeks. (FRIEND), Toncoin (TON) rode Base and Telegram related news to soar more than 17% respectively.

On Thursday, trillion-dollar investment manager Franklin Templeton released a bullish report on Base, citing as one of the projects likely to drive the SocialFi space on the Ethereum layer 2 blockchain.

TON price soared as Binance and OKX lead major exchanges in listing Notcoin (NOT), the native token of the community-driven game on Telegram.

Meanwhile, AKT sprung more than 25% in an upward move that saw the Artificial Intelligence related token lead the top 100 coins by market cap in terms of 24-hour gains.

The upside momentum is likely due to positive sentiment around the project’s quarterly revenue report. The QoQ analysis the Akash Network team shared showed the ecosystem’s revenue hit $140,000 in Q1, largely driven by surging interest in DePIN.
