The top 10 cryptocurrencies, excluding stablecoins, saw a shakeup this week, with Shiba Inu and Tron battling for the 10th position.

This climb coincides with Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) decline of 5.8% during the same period, pushing it out of the top 10.

Volatile Week in Crypto

Avalanche (AVAX) emerged as the biggest gainer this week, surging by an impressive 9.5%. Solana (SOL) followed closely behind with a 5% increase, while TRX secured its top 10 position with a 4.3% gain. Toncoin (TON) rounded out the list of gainers with a modest 1% rise over the week.


Cardano (ADA) limited its losses to a mere 0.4%, showcasing the most resilience among the top 10. Dogecoin (DOGE) and Binance Coin (BNB) experienced slightly steeper declines of 1.6% and 2.6%, respectively. Rounding out the top 10, Ripple (XRP), Ethereum (ETH), and Bitcoin (BTC) fell by 2.8%, 3.4%, and 4.7%, respectively.

This week’s price movements highlight the ongoing volatility within the cryptocurrency market. While some cryptocurrencies like Avalanche experience significant gains, others like Shiba Inu face setbacks. This underscores the importance of conducting thorough research before investing in any cryptocurrency.
