“The altcoin space seems to be giving tough competition to crypto king Bitcoin. If we look at the 24-hour data, Ethereum has outperformed Bitcoin by almost six percent while other altcoins like ADA, SOL, and MATIC witnessing significant surges in their prices. The current market momentum is expected to be sustained owing to positive macroeconomic factors,” Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin told Gadgets360.

“Ethereum and Solana have attained their highest valuation levels since May 2022, showcasing a distinct upward trajectory in their market performance. Overall, the market looks bullish with positive optimism as most HODLers have no intention of selling early. There is also anticipation surrounding the release of the US employment data today,” Edul Patel,Co-Founder and CEO, Mudrex told Gadgets360.

Meanwhile, loss-making cryptocurrencies today include USD Coin, Dogecoin, Tron, Cronos, Near Protocol, and Status.
