By Jamie Redman

After the price of bitcoin tapped an all-time high above the $67K handle, it then dropped below the $60K zone to $59,510 per unit. Since then, the leading crypto asset has regained some of the losses and bitcoin is still up 2.4% during the last seven days. However, a great number of crypto assets have outperformed bitcoin’s weekly rise, capturing double-digit gains as high as 65.1%.

Thorchain, Nexo, Near, Okb, Shiba Inu, Safemoon Values Spike

Digital currency markets are on the move again as the $2.733 trillion market valuation of all 10,000+ crypto assets is up 4.6% on Monday. BTC has jumped a bit higher during the latter half of Sunday’s trading sessions into Monday and BTC has gained 2.4% this past week. But there’s over 55 different digital assets that have outperformed BTC’s weekly gains.

The top seven-day gainer this week is thorchain (RUNE) which has jumped a whopping 65.1% this past week.
