Litecoin bucked the market downtrend, posting 19% gains over the past week to lead the top 100.
Price performance over the last 24 hours has seen LTC record 13.7% gains to $70.10 from $61.53 at the time of press. The majority of today’s gains resulted from a 9.6% upside swing on the 13:00 (UTC) candle.
As a result, Litecoin continues climbing higher on the market cap rankings. Excluding stablecoins, this positions LTC in the top 10 to rank 9th, leapfrogging Shiba Inu in the process.
