How the Fab Five Fared
In aggregate since yesterday, the “fab five” — Litecoin, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Ripple — were up 1.21%. Leading the way was Bitcoin, whose price is now around $10076.66 USD, which yielded holders a return of 2.33% from the day prior. In terms of the worst performer, that would be Bitcoin Cash, which reported a day-over-day return of -0.24% — a move that puts its price around $316.97 USD. Out of the five coins observed here, four cryptocurrencies were up — which is a bullish sign for the sector as a whole.

Insights From Transaction Data
The blockchain that saw the most transactions recorded on its blockchain over the past day was Ripple; its 1,137,563 transfers added was about 84% greater than the transactions recorded on Ethereum, which was the runner up for transactions logged on its chain over the past 24 hours. Ripple has a transaction fee less than the transaction fee of Ethereum, which may indicate that transaction fees might be a key reason why users are preferring Ripple. Over the past 24 hours, the largest transaction across all blockchains occurred on Ethereum, coming in at a value of $102,877,808 US dollars. This is the second day in a row in which the largest transaction has occurred on the Ethereum chain, marking a notable shift from the previous behaviour.
