Why Is ALGO Surging 

Even though the crypto market is negative, a lot is happening in the ALGO ecosystem. Currently, the total volume locked on the ecosystem has grown considerably. The DeFi blockchain is recording massive interest, evidenced by the $244 million worth of TVL. 

This figure was its data as of September 22 after adding 4.09% growth in its TVL. Data also reveals that $100 million out of this liquidity came from AlgoFi. 

Apart from growing TVL, Algorand has made partnerships. The prominent one recently is the FIFA& Algorand partnership enabling the crypto network to FIFA+ Collect. This platform is where users will buy NFT items of many types.
