BitGo is a market leader in institutional digital asset custody, and many in the community believe that its support for SUSHI is hugely bullish for the DeFi token. The platform made the said announcement via Twitter, with the blog post for the same stating,
“The SushiSwap community and team have showcased incredible perseverance with their roadmap, cementing themselves as one of the most vibrant DeFi projects in the space.”
SUSHI has registered considerable growth over the course of the past few months, recording returns of over 400% since the beginning of the year alone. In fact, SUSHI was trading at $14.22 on the price charts, at the time of writing.
The protocol is also nearing the much-anticipated launch of its new lending solution, BentoBox, which will be part of its ambitious roadmap that has inspired confidence among many in the community.
