Crypto market on the rise with EOS and Litecoin as top performers
The crypto market is finally seeing gains, after more than a year of bearish influence which resulted in the longest, most harsh crypto winter in the last decade. While the coins are not out of the woods yet, the current situation seems to be a genuine recovery which already added billions of dollars back to the total market cap.
The current surge has affected pretty much all the coins on the market to some degree, although it is clear that the leaders are EOS and Litecoin (LTC), followed by Binance Coin (BNB) and Stellar (XLM).
In fact, BNB and XLM were the original two leaders of the surge, although EOS and LTC quickly took the lead, and their growth brought the total market cap back to $135 billion. This is also the amount that the crypto market attempted to reach ever since January 10th, when it sank below it.
At the time of writing, EOS holds the position of the 4th largest coin by market cap, with a cap of $3.42 billion, while Litecoin is only a step behind at the 5th spot with a market cap of $3.005 billion. The two coins were never really rivaling in regard to their goals, although they were constantly attempting to outperform each other for the fourth position on the list of largest coins by market cap.
