Fri 13 Aug 2021 ▪ 16h40 ▪ 4 min de lecture - par Rudy Bauer

Altcoins are becoming increasingly important for the crypto market. Let’s take a closer look at some of the latest trends and indicators of this budding niche.

Cardano (ADA)

Cardano sets new price records. The asset is currently trading above $2.06, which indicates an increase of more than 13% over the past 24 hours.

ADA presents itself as an updated version of Ethereum (ETH), offering developers a possibility of creating decentralised applications (DApps). During the past week, the token has risen in value by more than 48%.

Chiliz (CHZ)

Legendary footballer Lionel Messi has recently left FC Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain, which prompted another altcoin, Chiliz, to rise. The firm behind CHZ is known for operating Socios, a platform where Paris Saint-Germain Fan Tokens (PSG) are issued. After it was revealed that Messi’s two-year contract includes payments in PSG, the CHZ exchange rate jumped 18% to 37c and is still ballooning. The current value of the asset appears to be 41% higher than a week ago.

PSG value rose from $32 to $47 amid news of Messi‘s transfer, then dropped to a new support level of $43. PSG is 310th in the market cap price table.

Ripple (XRP)

Ripple has hit $1.04, which turns out to be 6% of its daily growth. Even though the altcoin has been delisted from some cryptocurrency exchanges due to heavy litigation with the SEC, it surged by more than 45% during the past week.

Binance Coin (BNB)

BNB is now worth about $404. Over the past 24 hours, its value has increased by almost 5%, with more than a 20% rise since last Friday.

Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum, the world’s second largest coin by market cap and one of the oldest altcoins, has risen by 3% over the past 24 hours and is now trading at around $3.228. That shows a 17% rise since last week.

Dogecoin (DOGE)

The famous Dogecoin, favoured by Elon Musk, is trading at $0.2755, having lost 0.25% over the past 24 hours. However, on a weekly trend, this meme coin has seen a 37% rise.

Last but not least

The crypto market cap is at $1.9 trillion (~£1.4 trillion), having increased by 4.04% over the past 24 hours. 

The volume of the cryptocurrency market for the past 24 hours is assessed at around $108.33 billion (~£78.38 billion), which is equivalent to a decline of 16.26%. DeFi’s total volume currently stands at $11.35 billion (~£8.2 billion), almost 10.48% of the daily crypto market volume.

Stablecoins are worth $85.20 billion (~£61.63 billion), which is around 78.65% of the total daily volume of the crypto market.

Bitcoin (BTC) is currently dominant with 44.59%, indicating a daily decline of 0.48%.

Intriguing enough, isn’t it? We’ll be keeping track of the key exchange indicators for both alts and BTC in our upcoming reports. Let’s see where the market moves!
