Cardano jumps 15%, beating majors in gains
Over the past 24 hours, BNB is up 4.48%, SOL is up 11.41%, and XRP is up 3.64%. Bitcoin and Ether, the two most popular cryptocurrencies, gained nearly 6% and 7% respectively during the rally.
After the previous sell-off, traders may have viewed cryptocurrencies as oversold and overbought assets; For example, Bitcoin has regained $31,000 after nine weeks of losses. Whale accumulation, network growth, and optimistic expectations surrounding the impending Vasil Hard Fork could be the underlying factors for Cardano’s recent price move.
