  • The cryptocurrency market has experienced a week-long rally, with 9 out of the top 10 cryptos pumping.
  • The overall crypto market cap has jumped 7.1%, with major players seeing significant increases.
  • Chainlink has stood as the lone loser in the top 10 this week, but its recent performance has mitigated concerns.

It was a week to celebrate for cryptocurrency bulls as the market witnessed a widespread rally pushing prices up across the board. A remarkable nine out of the top 10 non-stablecoin cryptocurrencies enjoyed significant gains. The bullish sentiment suggests the positive trend might continue in the coming weeks.

Market Cap Jumps 7.1% in Bullish Wave

Cardano’s ADA token emerged as the undisputed champion, soaring 14.2%. This remarkable surge set the tone for the week, with other major players following suit. Ethereum, the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency, wasn’t far behind, climbing 11.4%, marking the end of the double-digit gainers for the week.

The positive sentiment permeated the market, with the overall crypto market cap experiencing a healthy 7.1% increase. Binance Coin (BNB), Tron (TRX), and Bitcoin (BTC) all demonstrated solid performances, rising 9.6%, 8.4%, and 7.5%, respectively. 


Even the lower end of the leaderboard saw positive momentum. XRP, Solana (SOL), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Avalanche (AVAX) all notched up respectable gains, ranging from 0.5% for Avalanche to 5% for XRP. Solana and Dogecoin experienced 2% increases, rounding out the winning pack.

While most of the top 10 basked in the bullish glow, Chainlink’s LINK token stood as the lone loser, experiencing a slight dip of 1%. However, considering its recent stellar performance, this breather is hardly a cause for concern. In fact, despite the minor setback, LINK continues to reign supreme as the top gainer over the past 30 days.

The Winners Podium

This week has been mostly green for the major cryptocurrencies, with almost all cryptocurrencies gaining ground. Here’s a breakdown of how the top 10 coins have fared, ranked by the highest percentage change:


  • ADA climbed 14.2% from $0.548 to $0.626

This is just a snapshot of the current market conditions at the time of writing. Cryptocurrency prices are constantly fluctuating, so it’s important to do your own research before making any investment decisions.

On the Flipside

  • While the current market sentiment is bullish, it’s important to remember that cryptocurrency prices are highly volatile and can experience sudden crashes. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
  • The cryptocurrency market constantly changes, and today’s winners might not be the same tomorrow.

Why This Matters

This widespread rally across major cryptocurrencies, with even lower-ranking coins seeing gains, signals a potential shift in market sentiment. With a 7.1% jump in overall market cap, there looks to be an optimistic outlook for the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem in the coming weeks.
