Upfiring (UFR) Rises By 1370% Over the Week
This week’s top gainer was Upfiring (UFR), which increased its price value by a massive 1370%, over the last seven days. For the most part of the last week, the asset traded in a range of $ 0.02 – $ 0.04 but rose to $ 0.31 today. Introduced as an alternative to traditional file sharing P2P protocols, Upfiring (UFR) was founded in 2017, offering tokenized incentivized file sharing economy. An analysis reveals no change in fundamentals, but rather higher trading interest from the traders and investors. It should be noted that Upfiring has a supply of 24M units and its last all time high was reported as $ 2.86 (Jan 09, 2018). Owing to the small number of total units, even a small rise in investment or trading activity, has the potential to cause major difference in price, in both directions.
