Crypto Market Wrap: Tron Continues to Outperform The Rest

Market WrapCrypto markets are still sluggish; Tron, Litecoin and Maker moving, Stellar slides and the rest are immobile.

Crypto markets are still inactive today as volatility and volumes shrink and red dominates the majority of cryptocurrencies. There has been very little movement in either direction and total market capitalization is still weakened below $115 billion.

Bitcoin hit resistance twice at $3,470 during the past 24 hours, pulling back both times. It is currently trading at $3,460, the same as yesterday with further declines looking likely. On the week BTC has hardly moved at all as it consolidates below $3,500.

Ethereum is still weak at around $107, again with very little activity over the past 24 hours. XRP has fallen back over a percent on the day to below $0.30 as the gap to third place shrinks back to $1 billion.

Most of the top ten is in the red at the time of writing but a couple are bucking the trend and making gains. Tron is the top performer in this section during Asian trading today with a gain of 6%. The momentum is likely to be coming from the BTT token what has increased 600% in price since the ICO last week. Tron has been the top performing altcoin in the top thirty this year and daily volume has doubled to $380 million.

Litecoin has also had a good week with slow but steady gains as it takes and holds sixth spot above Tether. Stellar continues to slide with another 5% lost on the day.

The top twenty is mixed with Maker getting a 6% spike at the moment as it moves up the chart. Binance Coin is also posting a gain of 2.5% but the rest are immobile or falling back slightly.

A very obscure fomo pump has occurred with Bitcoiin (yes, that is the correct spelling), as it surges 350% at the moment. Pundi X and Theta are both having a good day with 15% gains at the moment. Getting dumped is Revain, Nexo and Aurora with 12% losses at the time of writing.

Total market capitalization is pretty much where it was this time yesterday, $113 billion. Daily volume is still the same at $16 billion and things are very quiet in crypto land. There has been very little activity over the past seven days indicating that the next major movement will probably be down again.
