Even as Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) and Shiba Inu (CRYPTO: SHIB) dropped 8.2% and 9.7%, respectively, for the week, decentralized finance (DeFi) coins soared as the market entered 2022. Here are the five biggest gainers of last week.
Yearn.finance (YFI): The token linked to an aggregator service for DeFi investors has soared 31.5% in the last seven days. YFI touched an all-time high of $93,435.53 in May.
On Christmas Day, the project said it got a 1 million Fanton (FTM) grant from the Fantom foundation. The project expects more grants to come as it hits total value-locked goals.
Yearn has received a 1M FTM grant from @FantomFDN
We didn’t dump, over 90% was donated to the FTM vault. Other vaults got a proportional donation for an immediate 1% increase in value.
This grant is the first of many, we will continue receiving more as we hit TVL goals. pic.twitter.com/sUF1hYIEIn

XDC Network (XDC): The token linked to a smart contract protocol made up of public and private network states has shot up 23.3% in the past seven days. XDC touched an all-time high of $0.19 in August.
Last month, the XDC network recovered after suffering a panic interface conversion error.
At the end of the month, the project said it had identified an Ethereum bug, patched it, and resynchronized nodes.
On Friday, a legacy Ethereum bug triggered, degrading XDC network performance. The team identified the bug, patched it & resynchronized the nodes. The team is actively monitoring & testing the network. We’ll continue with updates as we regain 100% uptime for all network services.
