BTT gains of 91.12% are hard to ignore. The skyrocketing prices resulted in the cryptocurrency surpassing its previous highs to set a new all-time record of $0.003975. Since reaching the new numbers, BTT’s market capitalization has surged. It is currently the 32nd-biggest cryptocurrency based on market capitalization.

The blockchain platform designed for the creation and use of DApps gained a stunning 121.84% last week, reaching a new ATH of $0.2199. This tremendous growth has seen its fully diluted market cap grow to $2,474,059,997.79, showing no signs of slowing down.
