This Week’s Crypto Winners

The past week worked out to generally be a down market for most cryptocurrencies, but we saw several experience massive increases over the last 7 days.

Nasdacoin

Nasdacoin increased a whopping 158.75% to reach a price of $2.47 as of the date of publishing. Ranking as #93 in terms of market capitalization, much of this change seems to be attributed to the team announcing that Nasdacoin would be listed on several new exchanges.

CREX24, BTC-Alpha, and MERCATOX all announced plans to list NSD on November 12th, and the result was a quick run-up in the price of the coin. From looking at the whitepaper, there doesn’t seem to be anything special about the coin, and it is easy to conclude that the recent increases are mostly the result of an improvement in accessibility, rather than a notable change in fundamentals.

Animation Vision Cash

Animation Vision Cash (AVH) is a content trading platform that underwent a significant spike on November 19th for an as yet unconfirmed reason. The platform differentiates itself among others by being an adult content trading platform. Content providers prefer this market mechanism a lot more, and the goal of the platform is to create a dialogue between producers and consumers. The recent 71% jump in price is likely the result of recent announcements.

On.Live

ONL, the coin of On.Live, went through a 70% spike in price to approximately $0.12. This is a true altcoin, with a market capitalization of approximately $2.4 million. The company is devoted to the idea of revolutionizing how video broadcast and remote consultations are executed. The ONL token is what would power the entire economy of the platform, however no new significant news has been released that explains this jump in price.

Factom

Factom has experienced a 51% run-up in price over the last 7 days, reaching a price of $6.49 at the time of publishing. Factom currently has a market capitalization ranking at 74 ($57.8 million), and this could continue to grow with the good news that has been published. On the 14th, it was announced that Equator would be incorporating Factom’s blockchain-as-a-service technology into their mortgage software. Generally, huge partnerships like this are seen as major successes, and help the public perception, as well as the economic case.

Birake

Birake had their BIR token appreciate 45% in the last week. Currently trading around a price of $0.12, Birake has a tiny market capitalization of $2.4 million. As a white label cryptocurrency exchange, they have a fairly unique offering, and it is natural that they have the occasional spike in price.

As you can see, there is a wide variety in the coins that were the biggest winners of the week. Some were in the top 100, and others weren’t even in the top 500. While this doesn’t negate the bear trend of the broader cryptocurrency market, it shows that there are still winners in our midst.
