Band Protocol (BAND) – a decentralized oracle network – has recently become one of the hottest DeFi coins, with news of multiple integrations and a Coinbase Pro listing sending its price to fresh all-time highs earlier this week.

Band Protocol is currently trading up 32x from where it was when it started the year.

Chainlink is still 25x larger than BAND
