ONDO has been the third best-performing cryptocurrency over the last month, with gains of more than 73%. The rally boosted unrealized profits of holders, as more than 90% of the holders were "in the money" as of this writing, according to IntoTheBlock.

Why It Matters: ONDO is the native token of Ondo Finance, a tokenization project backed by Coinbase. The tokenization of real-world assets i.e, bringing off-chain assets like real estate, bonds, and commodities on the blockchain, has emerged as one of the hottest narratives in Web3

Ondo tokenizes U.S. government treasury bonds and its Short-Term US Government Bond was the third highest in market capitalization in this category of offerings, according to

Additionally, the platform has total deposits of $534 million as of this writing, data from DeFiLlama shows, more than doubling year-to-date.

Price Action: The profit-taking seemed to have impacted ONDO as the token slipped 0.48% in the last 24 hours to trade at $1.30 at the time of publication, according to data from Benzinga Pro.
