Loopring (LRC): The Layer 2 coin, which runs on Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH), shot up 86.23% last week. LRC hit an all-time high of $3.83 last week.

The NFT buzz has been pushing up gas or transaction fees on the Ethereum network, which has also increased the appeal of Layer 2 solutions such as LRC. This fact was illustrated by the project in a recent tweet by the project as well.
