Solana smiling as it closes on XRP BusinessCloud

Cryptocurrency

Solana was one of only two coins among the top 10 cryptocurrencies to gain value in the last 24 hours as it looks to become more valuable than XRP once more.

A more than 1% gain saw SOL close on $139 at the time of writing (7am UK), which leaves it 7% up in a week – easily the highest seven-day price gain across the majors.

Its market cap is now $41.4 billion, only $1.5bn behind that of Ripple’s coin, which holds sixth spot in the valuation table.

XRP dipped 2% to 92 cents and is 1% down on its price last Wednesday.

Market leader Bitcoin (BTC) dropped 1% to around $42,200, a seven-day increase of less than 1%.

Smart contract blockchain platform Ethereum (ETH) dropped another $100 to $2,900 – more than 1%. The world’s second most valuable crypto is 1% up over seven days.

Cardano (ADA), in third spot in the valuation table, dipped 4% for a second consecutive day to sit at $2.08. The proof-of-stake blockchain platform is 2% up over seven days.

Binance Coin (BNB) was the other major to gain value, adding 1% to reach $343. It is 3% below its value a week ago.

Meme coin Dogecoin (DOGE) dipped below 20c after a 1% fall in 24 hours and is 4% down in a week.

dYdX (DYDX) was the biggest winner among the top 100 coins, gaining 25% to close on $25. It is 89% up over seven days.

Decred (DCR), Fantom (FTM) and XDC Network (XDC) all dropped 9%, the most among the top 100.

The overall market cap of the more than 12,100 coins is at $1.86 trillion, a 1.2% decrease in the last 24 hours.
