The crypto crowd sure knew how to show their love on Valentines Day. It was a great day in the market with all top 20 cryptocurrencies ending the day with gains. Litecoin was the winner of the game, seeing a 33% gain ending the day at $212. Monero’s XMR was next with 14.98% gains, followed by VeChain at 14.52%. The latter two are lesser known altcoins ranking 13 and 18 respectively in the cryptocurrency market cap ranking. Monero is a privacy-focused coin which has hit the headlines recently thanks to a piece of malware mining it in secret on Android devices. The malware redirects users to websites that tap into a device’s processing power to mine the Monero cryptocurrency. U.S. online news publication Salon has also adopted this unconventional alternative to ads to make money — using a reader's computing power to mine Monero. Monero’s XMR saw the same type of gains and pullbacks other major cryptos were affected by in the past month, and currently making its way back up to key resistance levels. Let’s see how deep the love is for Monero as more people become aware of the malware. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates next time.
