It was a sea of green in the cryptocurrency market on Friday morning after the major coins enjoyed big gains.

At the time of writing (7am UK), Ripple’s XRP coin was up more than 8% to reach $1.22 after three days of losses.

However those losses had followed huge gains over the weekend, with the coin having only returned to a symbolic valuation of $1 a week ago. Its seven-day price increase is therefore 22%.

Ethereum (ETH), the world’s second most valuable crypto, was boosted by 7% and is sitting just above $3,200. It is 2.5% up in a week.

Market leader Bitcoin (BTC) climbed back above $47k with a 6% jump which puts it 4% up in a week.

Proof-of-Stake blockchain platform Cardano surged a massive 18% in price in the last 24 hours, with its ADA token now worth $2.51, putting it 28% up over seven days.

It was second only to SwissBorg (CHSB) in terms of gains among the top 100 coins in the last 24 hours. CHSB is closing on $1 after a huge 34% jump and has added a third in value in a week.

Meme coin Dogecoin (DOGE) added 5% of value to close on 32 cents and is 17% up over seven days.

Binance Coin (BNB) enjoyed an 8% boost to reach $429 and is 9% higher than its price last Friday morning.
