How the Fab Five Fared
In aggregate since yesterday, the “fab five” — Litecoin, Bitcoin Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Ripple — were up 8.99%. Out of the aforementioned five, Bitcoin Cash gave investors the best daily return; it was up 11.47%. In terms of the worst performer, that would be Litecoin, which reported a day-over-day return of 7.33%. Out of the five coins observed here, all five cryptocurrencies were up — which is nice for those bullish on cryptocurrencies as a whole.

What Does Transaction Data Tell Us?
The blockchain that saw the most transactions recorded on its blockchain over the past day was Ethereum; its 737,155 transfers added was about 25% greater than the transactions recorded on Ripple, which was the runner up for transactions logged on its chain over the past 24 hours. Ethereum’s transaction fee is greater than Ripple’s transaction fee; in and of itself, this may imply consumers are opting for Ethereum in spite of its higher fees. The largest transaction in the cryptocurrency space yesterday, coming in at a value of $73,750,040, occurred on Bitcoin Cash’s chain. This is a bit interesting, as the largest daily transaction in the cryptocurrency universe has typically occurred on Bitcoin’s blockchain rather than any other chain.
