Comments from finder.com co-founder, Fred Schebesta:
“We’ve created this analysis to help crypto enthusiasts see which coins are the biggest movers and shakers each week. By narrowing down to the top 100 coins as well, we can see how the biggest players in the space are performing.
“As a whole, it was a rough week, as we saw most coins decrease in both price and volume. Over the past week, 89% of coins saw a decrease in price, with the total volume dipping by 9% compared to the previous week.
“It’s the lowest bitcoin has been since about April this year, and it’s likely that this has had a ripple effect on the whole market. Over the weekend, South Korean crypto exchange Coinrail reported 30% of its coins stolen in a hack, and bitcoin followed with hitting a low of $6,700 on June 11. As many altcoins follow the highs and lows of bitcoin, this too may be related.”
