As the majority of cryptocurrencies battled to contain losses triggered by the latest sell-off on the market, the Trust Wallet Token (TWT) was posting slight gains in defiance of the prevailing market sentiment.
At the time of publication, TWT was trading at $2.08, recording gains of 5% in the last 24 hours and up 3% in the past week against the backdrop of other cryptocurrencies, which were posting losses in this timeframe.
The FTX collapse has benefited the TWT token directly as users turn away from exchanges and to noncustodial wallets.
Following the collapse of cryptocurrency exchange FTX and its subsequent hack, crypto investors reevaluated the security of their assets, prompting the rise of trust wallets.
Notably, Bitcoin outflows from exchanges in the past week reached an all-time high, with most investors resorting to self-custody.
