Uniswap {{UNI}} added 21% alongside its response this week to a Wells Notice it received from U.S. regulators.

Among underperforming large-cap assets were Ripple {{XRP}}, Cardano {{ADA}} and ChainLink {{LINK}}, not to mention bitcoin {{BTC}} which gave up early gains to finish the week just marginally higher.
