Cryptocurrency: Top 10 coins with the largest gains 5 March

Posted: 5 March 2018 11:20 am

Both Ripple and Stellar are up, along with many more.

The week is starting with mostly gains across the board, following readjustments over the weekend. These are the top 10 coins with the largest gains in the last 24 hours at the time of writing, according to CoinMarketCap, of the top 100 coins by market cap.

1. TenX – up 14.5%

A combined cryptocurrency debit card, wallet and payment system, allowing access to multiple blockchains in one place.

2. Dragonchain – up 14.4%

A for-business blockchain platform, designed to let companies easily customise their own ready-to-go blockchain solutions which can interface with both legacy systems and public blockchains.

3. Ripple – up 10.3%

The third biggest gainer at the time of writing and the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap overall. Ripple was created specifically for use as a settlement layer in international money transfers, with a focus on uptake by banks, remittance companies and businesses that need international payment systems.

4. Cindicator – up 10%

A cryptocurrency and traditional market tool for traders and analysts. It's a network of thousands of financial analysts, "enhanced with artificial intelligence" to give more detailed market insights and highlight trading opportunities.

5. Emercoin – up 9.1%

A multi-purpose blockchain system with a combined proof-of-work and proof-of-stake consensus model, with its own suite of programs that run on the platform.

6. Byteball Bytes – up 6.8%

A peer to peer smart contract and payment system, designed to allow for trustless p2p interactions, such as making bets with other users.

7. Bytom – up 5.8%

A system designed for the tokenisation and subsequent use of assets in the Bytom system.

8. Stellar – up 5.6%

An international payment focused coin, with its own distributed exchange and mechanism for allowing peer to peer money changing and cost-effective international payments, utilising the Stellar token.

It's kind of like Ripple, except with a focus on individual transactions rather than institutional ones.

9. Zcash – up 5.2%

A privacy oriented monetary cryptocurrency.

10. Kucoin Shares – up 5%

The token of the Kucoin exchange. It can be used on the platform itself and traded for all other listed currencies, while token holders can earn dividends of a fraction of the fees earned on trades across the entire platform.
