All Change in Crypto Top Ten
Tezos is on fire again today with another surge of 18% as it powers into the top ten. From an intraday low of around $1.55 XTZ cranked higher to top out at $1.83 a couple of hours ago before a slight pullback.
Daily volume has pumped from $70 million to $117 million according to Coinmarkercap and again Binance and OKEx are taking the lion’s share of the trading. The move has enabled Tezos to flip Stellar for a top ten position as its market cap reached $1.2 billion.

The Bitwise10 has now sold XLM to buy XTZ.
Quant traders, have you ever studied whether there's momentum (autocorrelation) or reversion when coins enter round cardinalities (top100, top50, top10, top5)? Say price move v BTC 3mo after. Would be interested to see. https://t.co/9V1zj3nu9p

Earlier this month the fund replaced Dash with Tezos also and others such as the Crypto20 fund are likely to follow suit as the token continues to outperform its brethren.
Proof of stake tokens are likely to grow in popularity as investors will simply hold on to them for staking purposes. Tezos has a delegated staking system whereby holders do not need to have the full amount to become a ‘baker’ and can join staking pools to get their rewards.
Other performers today include Cosmos, VeChain and Qtum.
