According to data from TradingView.com, a majority of the gains of the surge were incurred within a five-minute period.

The reason for this surge is simple: Coinbase Pro. More accurately, as the asset surged higher, the leading cryptocurrency exchange announced via tweets that it had listed Band Protocol.

“Mon, Aug 10, our BAND-USD, BAND-BTC, BAND-EUR & BAND-GBP order books will enter transfer-only mode, accepting inbound transfers of BAND in supported regions. Orders cannot be placed or filled. Trading will begin on/after 9AM PT the following day, if liquidity conditions are met.”

BAND tokens proceeded to rally as this was the first major exchange they had been listed on aside from Binance, which recently launched futures for the cryptocurrency.

The cryptocurrency was also benefiting from a recently announced partnership with Elrond. 

“ElrondNetwork $ERD, a leading blockchain platform focused on scalability, has chosen to integrate $BAND oracles to bring significant improvements to the existing data availability and scalability in their rapidly growing application ecosystem.”
