The performance of these cryptos seemed good enough. But what actually grabbed eyeballs on the Crypto Twitter is the abrupt pumping of the bankrupt crypto exchange FTX’s token, FTT.

FTT peaked at $2.59 on 16 January, 12:00 am. The token has seen a jump or rather a pump of a whopping 40% and is currently trading at $2.40. Many Twitteratis have cautioned investors about this strange price movement and suggested it could just be a classic case of pump and dump.
