LINK and AXS Take the Lead

The alternative coins registered impressive gains yesterday, and most have calmed today. Ethereum continues with its recovery session as the second-largest crypto dipped to $2,000 earlier this week. Now, though, ETH stands above $2,600 after another minor daily increase.

Binance Coin and Terra have retraced slightly since yesterday, but Cardano, Ripple, Polkadot, Dogecoin, Avalanche, and Shiba Inu have tapped minor gains.

The most significant price increases from the larger-cap alts come from coins like Chainlink and Axie Infinity. Both assets have increased by around 10% in a day.

More gains come from lower- and mid-cap altcoins. Flow leads the way with a 20% surge, followed by Arweave (15%), Convex Finance (13%), Tezos (10%), Synthetix Network Token (9%), and Pocket Network (9%).

The cryptocurrency market cap has remained relatively still, and it stands above $1.7 trillion.
