Comments from finder.com co-founder, Fred Schebesta:
“This week we’re seeing another drop in the total volume of cryptocurrency traded. Despite being down only 6% from last week, this is a 51% drop from the first time we released this Weekly Coin Analysis report in April. The only positive growth we’ve seen since April was in the May 25 Weekly Coin Analysis, where the total volume increased by 2%. The reason for the declining trade volume is because coin values have fallen – this week alone we’ve seen 83% of the 1,586 coins drop in price. And they may drop further before we see them pick up again.
“Docademic saw the biggest percentage increase in price over the past seven days. This is a relatively new coin which started trading in May, but has the backing of cybersecurity pioneer John McAfee. It has a strong use case in the medical sector and I expect we may see prices continue to rise as the launch date for its app approaches.”
