Chainlink and Polkadot saw record price increases among the top ten cryptocurrencies today
This is the end of a roller coaster week, which started off with a difficult start with falls that ended on Tuesday and which have witnessed a price recovery in the last two days, but which are yet to be contextualized in technical recovery. In fact, the recovery of important resistance that occurred yesterday was not confirmed during these hours, when red lights predominate.
LINK: price flies and sets a new record
Among the most capitalized currencies, there is a slight prevalence of negative signs. Among the “blue chips of cryptography” (the first 10), Chainlink (LINK) rose more than 25% and is at the top of the podium. It was preceded by Curve Dao Token (CRV), while the best of the day was IOSToken (IOST).
IOSToken (IOST) had a 290% positive performance since the beginning of the year, the best hike in the year so far among the top 100 cryptocurrencies.
Chainlink’s rise today reached $ 21, an all-time high for the token in the Oracle smart contract project.
This allowed Chainlink to move up to 9th position, with more than US $ 7.7 billion in capitalization.
Another noteworthy increase in the top 10 is that of Polkadot (DOT), which continues to fly today with + 13% gains, with prices close to $ 15.
Thus, Polkadot consolidates its 5th position in the ranking, maintaining its market value above US $ 12 billion, increasingly closer to overtaking the XRP, which continues to hover below 30 cents. The total capitalization of the crypto market remains above $ 1 trillion.
Bitcoin’s market share dropped a few decimal places to 68%.
Ethereum’s rise in the last few hours has caused it to regain 13.5% of the domain. XRP continues to hover at three-year lows with 1.2% market share.
DeFi rose again above $ 22.3 billion, its highest level ever.
Maker with $ 4.2 billion confirms itself as an industry leader, followed by Aave, with Uniswap and Compound competing for third place.
