The next three best performing currencies were Binance Coin, THETA, and Waltonchain, which gave holders daily returns of 7.84%, 7.32%, and 2.64%. These moves were notable not only for their magnitude relative to other coins, but also because they were large and surprising relative to the volatility of each of these currencies over the past two weeks.
