Posted: 28 February 2018 10:42 am

Which cryptocurrencies are seeing the most growth today?

The top coins seem to be mostly experiencing moderate gains today, with the usual ups and downs. These are the coins with the largest gains in the last 24 hours at the time of writing, of the top 100 coins by market cap, according to CoinMarketCap.

1. DigixDAO – up 18.6%

The governance token of a paired gold-backed stablecoin system. It's had a fairly consistent week of growth, with a pronounced spike to a new all-time high in the last 24 hours, taking it from about US$420 to $480 and putting it at the top of this list.

2. Ethos – up 16.6%

A token that aims to "make the daunting cryptocurrency market accessible to everyone, accelerate adoption of blockchain technology and democratize ownership of cryptocurrencies" with a combination multi-token wallet, exchange and social platform.

3. Blocknet – up 16.2%

A peer to peer protocol for connecting nodes on multiple blockchains. It aims to create a system that lets larger blockchains deliver their services to users on a smaller basis, overcoming scaling problems and allowing for more blockchain interoperability.

4. Nano – up 12.2%

A highly scalable, fast-transferring, zero fee monetary token that's seen pronounced price growth in the last week, for several reasons, but is still clocking in at less than half the price of its all-time high.

5. OmiseGO – up 11.9%

The decentralised currency agnostic token of exchanges. It combines payment system and exchange, and aims to be operable across any kind of currency, whether fiat or crypto.

6. Aeternity – up 9.5%

A holistic blockchain system, combining a governance model and scalable off-chain smart contract functionality, operated through a hybrid PoW and PoS consensus model.

7. Binance coin – up 8.6%

The native token of the Binance exchange, usable for paying fees at a discount.

8. IOStoken – up 7.9%

The Internet of Services token aims to become an incubator and ground level platform for ICOs and business ideas, providing a transparent and scalable ecosystem that lets users program applications in all major programming languages.

9. IOTA – up 7.3%

An Internet of Things token defined by its unique Tangle blockchain-esque system, which delivers high speed, zero fee transactions using a method similar to Nano. It aims to become the de-facto token of the Internet of Things, powered by the surplus processing power that most phones, cars and other devices have.

10. Pillar – up 7%

The Pillar Project is designed to make you the "pillar" for all your personal data, rather than spreading it across other services and companies, with the intention of making each user its own hub.
