Both Ethereum and Ripple enjoyed big gains in the last 24 hours while the other major cryptocurrencies remained relatively still.

At the time of writing (7am UK), ETH, the world’s second most valuable crypto and a token for the smart contract blockchain Ethereum, topped $3,500 after jumping 9% and is 10% up on its price last Wednesday.

Ripple’s XRP coin gained more than 7% – equivalent to 8 cents – to reach $1.20. It is 3% up over seven days and investors will be hoping it can return to the $1.30 level it reached a couple of weeks ago. 

Market leader Bitcoin (BTC) is at $47,400 after gaining a half percentage point in the last 24 hours. It is 2% down over seven days.

Cardano’s ADA token, which shot up 23c over the Bank Holiday weekend, did not move from its Tuesday morning price of $2.78. The Proof-of-Stake blockchain platform – which has risen to third spot in the valuation league table in recent weeks – is also where it was a week ago.

Why might Cardano hit all-time high in September?

Binance Coin (BNB) pulled back 1% to reach $469 after a fall over the extended weekend. It is down 4% in a week.

Meme coin Dogecoin (DOGE) is around 28c after a rise of 2% and is 5% up over seven days.

Revain (REV) and Kusama (KSM) were the big winners, each climbing around 25%. The former has more than doubled its valuation from last Wednesday.

Fantom (FTM) performed the worst among the top 100 coins, dropping 12%, but is 43% up in a week.

The cryptocurrency market climbed 2.1% in the last 24 hours, with the 11,500 coins worth a collective $2.11 trillion.
