On Aug. 4, Band Protocol and Elrond announced a partnership to use Band's oracles to fetch off-chain data feeds.

"We've seen some amazing runs on the IEO's of Binance. Strongest movers are; KAVA, ERD and BAND as they all pulled a move of more than 10x. Recently, $PERL also joined the party with a big breakout. I think CELR, ONE and BRD can still join."
Whether the strong momentum of BAND could offset the threat of a post-Coinbase listing sell-off many cryptocurrencies saw in recent months remains uncertain.
