Crypto Market Wrap: Altcoins Surge Double Digits as Volume Hits Record High

Crypto markets surge to new ten month high; Ethereum, XRP, Stellar, Tezos and NEO leading the way. 
Market Wrap
For the second day in a row crypto markets have surged hitting a new 2019 high and a level not seen for ten months. Bitcoin has remained buoyed up and the altcoins are now revving up to boost total market capitalization up another $10 billion to $245 billion.
Bitcoin took a dive back to $7,700 a few hours ago but traders in Asia have lifted the king of crypto back over $8,000 again. BTC is currently trading level on the day at $8,030 and holding steady for now. Further gains are looking unlikely, but we said that when it crossed $6,000!
Ethereum is heating up today as Bitcoin starts to show signs of possible cooling. Rock bottom priced ETH surged 11 percent from an intraday low of just over $200 to just below $230 where it currently trades. This is the highest level Ethereum has seen for seven months as its market cap pushes past $24 billion.

The top ten is mostly in the green with several altcoins getting double digit FOMO for the first time in months. XRP has extended its run with a further 13 percent on the day to pass $0.43 and Stellar is mirroring its performance as it has done in the past with a 9 percent pump for XLM to $0.12. Cardano is still going strong adding 8 percent as Bitcoin Cash starts to pull back dropping 3%.
A solid wall of green has enveloped the top twenty during Asian trading. Tezos is having a moon shot with a 22 percent taking XTZ to $1.63. NEO is finally getting a massive 14 percent pump to reach $12 and Ontology is adding 12 percent on the day. Even Tron has woken up finally with a 10 percent gain bringing TRX back to $0.029.
FOMO: Project Pai Pumps
There is a lot of FOMO going around at the moment but PAI is getting the most of it with a 25 percent surge on the day. The AI based crypto token has been battered with the rest but is having a rare moment today. As mentioned Tezos is going well with 22 percent and Ravencoin is the third altcoin gaining over 20 percent today.
Taking a hit at the moment is ABBC Coin as it dumps 13 percent today, closely followed by Factom dropping 8 percent. Yesterday’s pump, Holo, is dumping today as expected.
