Yesterday’s Movers and Shakers
Over the past day, the top performing coin out of the 134 coins we are tracking was Chainlink, which offered a day-over-day return 11.7%. Other notable currencies were AppCoins, Syscoin, and Binance Coin, which experienced daily returns of -2.32%, -4.41%, and -4.71% respectively. 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.
