The last few days have shown bullish price activity across the list of top cryptocurrency markets. There’s been a lot of focus on coins like BTC, ETH, BCH, and EOS, but digital assets like HBAR (120%), STX (52%), XTZ (20%) and LINK (13%) have seen much larger gains this week. The cryptoconomy has surpassed the $300 billion range and a few speculators think an “altcoin season” is upon us.
Cryptoconomy Jumps Over the $300 Billion Threshold With Smaller Coins Making Significant Gains
During the early morning trading sessions on Wednesday, the overall market valuation for all 5,000+ digital currencies the $300 billion mark. BTC surpassed the $10K zone, ETH is hovering around $250 per coin, and BCH is climbing toward $500 a unit. Aside from the market capitalization giants, a number of smaller crypto contenders have been gathering significant gains. For instance, one asset traders have been eying lately is chainlink (LINK), a decentralized oracle project built on the Ethereum blockchain.
On Wednesday, February 12, 2020, the overall market cap of all 5,000+ digital assets surpassed $300 billion.
On February 12, LINK has gained 13.4%, and for the last seven days is up over 47%. Each unit is swapping for $4.19 and there’s $1.4 billion in reported chainlink trade volume today. However, “real volume” statistics from Messari.io shows there’s only $163 million LINK trades on Wednesday. Because chainlink came out recently it has already spiked to an all-time high (ATH) of $4.36 which is only 5% higher than the current spot market price.
