Altcoin movers

Altcoins have been on a roller coaster ride of price movements in the past 24 hours.

After an 80% gain over the past two days, XRP has jumped back into the fourth spot in terms of market cap. It’s currently trading for $0.97 with a $1.5 billion lead over the #5-ranked Tether (USDT).

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) has been the biggest altcoin gainer in the top-100. It’s trading at $106 after a 71% gain in the past 24 hours. BTG is up a grand total of 163% in the past week alone.

Although it was yesterday’s top gainer, Stacks (STX) is down 30% in the past 24 hours. It’s dropped back to the #67 position and is trading for $1.63.

  • Less than a week after its launch, the controversial Fei Protocol has already found a vulnerability in its code. The team was quick with a fix but it did not prevent the stablecoin from losing 20% off its peg.
