Recap of the Top Five Cryptos
Since the previous day, the five most-watched cryptos (Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum, and Ripple) provided their holders with a return of 0.5%. Leading the way was Litecoin, whose price is now around $47.91 USD, which yielded holders a return of 5.69% from the day prior. In terms of the worst performer, that would be Ethereum, which reported a day-over-day return of -1.76% — a move that puts its price around $140.66 USD. In total, one coin were up from the day prior, which indicates almost the entirety of the sector as a whole moved down.

- Trend traders may wish to keep an eye on XRP, Litecoin, Bitcoin and Ethereum. Those coins have clearly exhibited a bullish trend over the past two weeks.
What Does Transaction Data Tell Us?
The blockchain that saw the most transactions recorded on its blockchain over the past day was Ethereum; its 631,504 transfers added was about 98% greater than the transactions recorded on Bitcoin, which was the runner up for transactions logged on its chain over the past 24 hours. Ethereum has a transaction fee less than the transaction fee of Bitcoin, which may indicate that transaction fees might be a key reason why users are preferring Ethereum. Over the past 24 hours, the largest transaction across all blockchains occurred on Bitcoin, coming in at a value of $54,771,156 US dollars. The circulating value of all Bitcoins now comes in at approximately $143.97 billion US dollars — which means Bitcoin accounts for about 68.83% of the entire cryptocurrency market. To put that in perspective, we should note that over the past two weeks Bitcoin’s dominance percentage has been in an unclear trend, bouncing between 67.6% to 69.22%.
