Benzinga – Decentralized Finance (DeFi) lending and borrowing platform Maker (CRYPTO: MKR) saw a 22% rise in its native token price over the last seven days, bucking the downward trend seen in other major cryptos Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) and Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) due to news of Silvergate Capital’s (NYSE: SI) failure.
