Posted on May 10, 2021 by Jonathan Symcox
Litecoin (LTC) has climbed 17% in value in 24 hours to more than $402.
The altcoin – billed a lighter and faster version of Bitcoin – is up 46% in the last seven days.
Ethereum’s bull run continues with a 5% rise in 24 hours to $4,128, up 33% in a week.
Ether’s sibling Ethereum Classic (ETC) is at $128, well below its remarkable record show of $177 last week but still up 181% on last Monday morning and up 6% in 24 hours.
Ripple’s XRP coin rose 4% in value in 24 hours, with its price $1.59 at the time of writing (7am).
XRP hit $1.68 last week but is now slightly down on where it was seven days ago.
Dogecoin fell 6% in 24 hours to 53 cents yet remains 38% higher than seven days ago.
Originally created as a joke – and based on a meme – DOGE has benefited from the support of SpaceX and Tesla entrepreneur Elon Musk, but fell after he labelled it a ‘hustle’ while hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend.
Bitcoin (BTC) is above $59,000, slightly up in 24 hours and also slightly up on seven days ago.
The biggest rise in the 24-hour period was Telcoin (TEL), up 23% (260% in seven days).
