Friday turned out to be a historic day for the crypto market as BTC/USD crossed $10,000 for the first time since March 2018. Along with Bitcoin, the rest of the crypto market managed to pull their weight as well. Let’s take a look at how the top three did and then reveal the biggest winners of the day, among the top 20 coins.

Top three coins
