The Leading Cryptos With Highest Gains
Not all the cryptos are doing quite well. Whereas some have posted certain gains, there are quite a number that haven’t recorded tangible improvements. Among the top twenty leading virtual coins, only three have posted serious gains. One of them is Bitcoin Cash, which has recorded serious improvements over the past couple of days. The list also contains the Binance Coin – BNB. The other coin that is also in the greens is the dash – DASH. These three leading virtual coins have posted up to 2.5% price improvements in the past couple of days. This shows that there are certain crypto coins that are stil struggling to hit the record high prices.

According to the Galaxy Digital Chief Executive Officer, Bitcoin will never change the world since it is just a store of value. However, the CEO feels that there are certain applications that are posed to change the market and the entire world. He believes that the decentralized web 3.0 is placed at the best position of impacting the overall cryptocurrency market.
