The collective cryptocurrency market managed to hold on to the bulls as the recent upswing in prices decided to not subside. After adding nearly $10 billion to the global market cap in just under 24 hours, the market added another $3 billion the following day, spearheaded by the surging EOS [EOS] and Litecoin [LTC].
While the first massive uptrend was sparked by Binance Coin [BNB] and Stellar Lumens [XLM], EOS and Litecoin took charge the following day as the market reached $135 billion for the first time since January 10. The fourth and fifth coins respectively have been at loggerheads, constantly overtaking each other in pursuit for the coveted fourth spot which was occupied by Bitcoin Cash [BCH] for a long period of time.
EOS has amassed a 7.6 percent increase against the US dollar, the largest rise amongst the top-10. The coin was trading just under $3 for the better part of the past two weeks, prior to surging ahead at the beginning of the week. The coin began to rise on February 18, and at 11.00 UTC on the same day, the coin broke the $3-mark for the first time since mid-December.
