Altcoin movers

The total crypto market cap is closing in on its all-time high this morning. At the time of press, it’s sitting at a value of $2.12 trillion.

The cryptocurrency top-10 rankings have remained unchanged since yesterday, however, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is now just $4 billion from overtaking Litecoin (LTC). The respective third and fourth-ranked Binance Coin (BNB) and XRP saw nice boosts in price in the past 24 hours. BNB is close to making a new all-time high and has a market cap just under the $100 billion mark.

Venus (XVS) is the current top altcoin gainer of the day. It’s up 30% on the day and 90% in the past week. The move was enough to propel XVS into the #92 spot and is trading at $112.

Chiliz (CHZ) is the day’s biggest lose thus far. It’s down nearly 6% on the day but in the past week CHZ has still added more than 52%.
