Crypto in April: April was a good month for crypto. Don’t believe us? Check out the numbers. We’ve broken down how well each coin performed for the month of April and every coin in the top 30 grew. EOS and Tether (USDT) saw the best and worst movement for the month. Can you guess which coin moved the most?
Coins included in this breakdown are only those currently listed within the top 30 cryptocurrencies. All prices are taken from the historical data provided by CoinMarketCap, from the ‘opening’ price on April 1st, 2018, to the ‘closing’ price on April 30th, 2018. All prices are listed in USD.
Crypto in April: the Losers
In April, there weren’t really any losers at all! All coins performed well, without a single coin in the top 30 pulling out a loss. But some coins did do better than others. These are the top three coins that grew, but not enough to win the race.
Tether (USDT) saw the lowest amount of growth for the month of April. USDT started the month at $$0.995702 and ended at $0.998919, which means the coin moved +0.32%. It’s not surprising that of the top 30 coins, Tether would be the smallest mover, considering its tie, or tether, to the US dollar. There’s only so much you can move when you’re attached to a fiat currency – but at least that makes it less of a risk.
What’s more surprising is Litecoin (LTC). Litecoin only gained +27.00%, despite some big things going on for the coin this month. After Tether, Litecoin moved the least this month. Litecoin also lost its place as the 5th largest cryptocurrency in April. Litecoin is currently the 7th largest cryptocurrency, with a market cap of $8.2 billion.
Crypto in April: the Winners
April truly was a month of spring for crypto. Many coins gained over 100% in pricing over the course of the month. The coin that performed the best this month probably won’t surprise you. It’s EOS!
EOS has had a crazy month, in the best way possible. It grew from $6.00 at the beginning of the month to be listed for $17.58 by the end of the month, putting its growth at an incredible +193.00% in April. EOS is gearing up for the launch of EOSIO 1.0 and the excitement is showing. EOS was the first coin to overtake Litecoin in April and EOS is now the 5th largest cryptocurrency on the market, with a market cap of $14.5 billion.
After EOS comes Aeternity (AE), with a growth of +182.39% for the month of April. Aeternity is the 27th largest cryptocurrency, with a market cap of $1.0 billion.
