Top 3 Crypto Gainers as Market Sees Flat Recovery: XRP, QNT, and CSPR
The digital currency ecosystem is seeing a general flat growth over the past 24 hours, evidenced by the combined crypto market cap, which was up 0.25% to $945.82 billion.
The past week, as usual, has been filled with a lot of ups and downs for the top digital currencies, all of whom have managed to pare off some of the steep losses accrued in the trailing 7-day period.
With bankruptcy rocking the crypto world and known companies losing their top executives, the upset in the industry is only climbing more. However, amidst all these, XRP, Quant (QNT), and Casper Network (CSPR) have stood out over the past week.
Arguably one of the most resilient tokens since the start of the crypto winter, further compounded by the fact that it is at the centre of the legal battle between the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and its associated blockchain payments company, Ripple Labs Inc.
At its current price of $0.5403, XRP has seen a 16.98% growth over the past week, reiterating how much of a bullish run it has printed in that time frame per the chart below.
Quant is consistently top-performing and is known to have featured in the previous Blockchain.News altcoins watchlist. Currently changing hands at $157.63, up 6.57% in the past 24 hours and by 17.20% over the past week, the token is notably one of the altcoins to watch for the coming week.
Quant is notably expanding its ecosystem and relevance by a large factor as a protocol to connect blockchain protocols on a global scale.
Casper Network (CSPR)
The Casper Network recently made it to the top 100 biggest cryptocurrencies list by market cap. Investors have taken their time to ascertain how revolutionary the protocol has been since its token sale in Q1 2021.
Branded as a functional, highly efficient, low-energy consuming layer 1 protocol, Casper adoption and token price growth took a new dimension this past week.
While its price is slightly below its weekly high, the current $0.03634 came by following a 24.94% growth over the past 7 days, the highest of the top 100 coins surveyed over the same timeframe.
