The crypto space experienced a considerable loss last week. Bitcoin still remains the top cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization and daily traded volume. Here is a list of some cryptocurrencies and their market performance.
appearing first on our list, MIOTA, according to stats on CoinMarketCap (CMC) is the 17th largest coin by market capitalization. It records a market cap of $717.05 million and maintains it’s daily trading volume at $3.63million as at the time of writing this piece. During the course of the week, the coin had gained 8.43% making it the highest gainer of the week. MIOTA, like XLM, got a boost within the week. Surging up to $0.31 per coin, MIOTA had moved up by 29.16% on Friday and had also corrected since then. MIOTA presently trades at $0.25

Weekly Loss: 8.43%
Weekly High/Low: $0.293/$0.245
Stellar was the best performing coin of the week with a significant percentage gain of 16.57%. The coin particularly made massive gain within the week when alt coins began to push up the charts in a period which many confused as the beginning of the long-awaited alt season. The coin started out around $0.04 per unit on the 15th of September and had moved up about 50% by Thursday when it touched $0.087 per coin. However, when the short bull markets ended, the price dropped and the coin now trades at $0.068.

TXR is perhaps the coin whose underlying project has seen the most significant progress recently. The coin makes our list as it recorded a significant 24.54% within the last 7 days. As the 13th ranked coin on CMC, TRXusurps competitors like BNB, XMR and BSV to make it to the top five gainers of last week.

Bitcoin began the week on a bearish note. The top cryptocurrency had fallen steeply from its previous price of $10,031 on Sunday morning to its current price of $8,069 in the early hours of today. This represents a 19.79% fall. Though the percentage of the dip is relatively large given the kind of volatility the crypto market has seen earlier, bitcoin slipping below the $10k support level alongside a bull run seen in alts within the same period of time raises several question.
Opening Price: $10,031
Closing Price: $8,203
Weekly Loss: 19.79%
Weekly High/Low: $10,054/$7978
