Biggest winners and losers (Top 20 coins)

  • Binance Coin was the biggest winner among the top 20 coins, going up by 11.32%. It is currently trading for $21.80. The main driver of the price was the fact that Binance Coin's mainnet officially launched this Thursday.
  • Tezos kept on enjoying enormous gains. It went up by a further 9.49% and is currently trading for $1.35.
  • No coin should be classified as a loser after their performances this Thursday. However, Bitcoin Cash “lost” the most as it went down by -0.81% and is currently priced at $308.
