The Bitcoin (BTC) bull run allowed altcoins to enjoy a rather profitable week. But among the most capitalized cryptocurrencies, it is Litecoin (LTC) which is currently leading the way, with a particularly marked jump over the week.
Bull run for Litecoin (LTC), which stands out from altcoins
At the end of October, the price of Litecoin was characterized by some hesitation, which had been noted by the crypto community. LTC is indeed usually the leader when altcoins explode, but that had – so far – not been the case.
Until this week? Litecoin’s price exploded in the space of seven days, taking + 43% :
While it was still struggling to cross the $ 60 threshold a week ago, Litecoin’s price managed to climb above $ 70 midweek, and is currently trading around $ 81. . Over the month, it takes + 73% . This morning it posted a capitalization of 5.3 billion dollars.
Other altcoins are also growing
It should be noted, however, that the other altcoins in the top 10 do not have to be ashamed of their performance over the week. Particularly followed in recent weeks, Polkadot’s DOT has thus posted + 19% over the last seven days. It is followed by Ripple’s XRP , which seeks to silence those who would like to bury it too quickly: it takes + 18%.
The progression of Chainlink’s LINK is also notable, with + 11% over the last seven days. The rest of the top 10 shows a more measured rise (7.5% for ETH , + 3.2% for Cardano’s ADA and + 2% for Binance’s BNB ). It should also be noted that the only altcoin to fall over this period is Bitcoin Cash (BCH) , which was undoubtedly influenced by its hard fork .
